This Gibson L-00 from 1936 was built during the height of the Great Depression, lived through multiple wars, and likely owned by multiple generations. It looks like it has stories to tell from every one of its 90 years here in the States. It was recently revived into playing condition: neck reset, refret, reglued bridge, reglued braces and several repaired cracks. This one has aged gracefully without refinishing. At one time, it was outfit for electronics which meant a volume pot in the top and an enlarged endpin for the jack; the hole remains and adds to the character. What can't be said about these historical artifacts impact on blues and folk music? It's a pre-war Gibson guitar that sounds just as cool as it looks.

Comes with a 1930s chipboard case that has some awesome initials painted on its back.
