I built this guitar several years ago (serial number 43) as a custom order. The customer used it (and abused it) regularly, and then traded it in as part of the deal for another of my guitars a few months back.
I re-fretted it, refinished the top and neck, did some minor finish repairs elsewhere on the body and replaced the tuners with gold Grovers. Since my work is almost exclusively custom orders, this is a unique guitar, and it’s not new, I’ve decided to try selling it on eBay. It’s offered with no minimum and no reserve.
The Gibson L-0 with a 13 1/2 inch lower bout was only made from 1926 to 1930, when the lower bout was enlarged to 14 3/4 inches and made more square at the bottom. The L-0 was a low-end economy model, and thus was very popular with poor blues and country players. Legend has it that Robert Johnson, among many others, played an L-0.
The guitar being offered for auction was built to the exact dimensions of a 1929 Gibson L-0, as documented by Ted Davis of the Guild of American Luthiers. The only difference is that it has fancier cosmetic appointments (the original, for instance, was bound only on the top and used a plastic binding, while this guitar is bound front and back with wood binding). The interior bracing is identical to the original 1929 Gibson ladder style. This, combined with the thin mahogany top (another place where Gibson cut corners in the interest of economy), gives the guitar its unique sound. Like the original, this is not a big, booming, modern-sounding guitar – quite the opposite. It sounds like a 78 RPM record
