What model is this?


Recommended Posts

1932 was the first year for the pickguard and no "The" in the Gibson logo on the L series guitars.  I own a 1932 L1 which had fancier appointments so a hand rubbed varnish burst, both top and back binding, and firestripe pickguard.  What gave these guitars their amazing voice was the combination of a scary light build and the tall, thin non-scalloped X brace.
