This enchanting 1933 Gibson 12 fret spruce top L-O (Batch Number 37 XX) represents my favorite configuration and time period for Gibson small body flat top guitars. The build is not quite as light as the 1930-31 era guitars can be, so it has a little extra bone and muscle structure for a solid presence while still remaining extremely responsive to a lighter touch. Mahogany back and sides, Brass strip style Waverly tuners with very little oxidation patina. Silkscreened “Gibson” logo, Adjustable truss rod, Large V-shape neck profile, Nut width just shy of 1 3/4″, Ebony nut, Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, Bound sound hole edge, Brazilian rosewood bridge with original white bridge pins, White pickguard, White binding on the top only, Replacement black wooden endpin. Very little wear and no cracks. This very lively instrument has been lovingly preserved and played with care. A fantastic specimen of this early 1930s Gibson sound and feel! With modern hardshell case.
