The L-00 Vintage acoustic guitar looks, feels and sounds completely vintage. With its traditional build and artistic small-body design, the L-00 Vintage will feel like you own a piece of history. With a Thermally Aged body top and authentic vintage appointments, the L-00 still remains a symbolic acoustic model.
The small body of the L-00 Vintage features a Thermally Aged, Adirondack AA-grade red spruce top for a very genuine vintage Gibson acoustic tone. Accompanying the spruce top is mahogany in the back and sides. Binding the body together is the traditional Franklin Titebond 50 hot hide glue which improves the guitar's ability to freely transmit its tone. The spruce top is radiused with scalloped bracing, adding stability and improving overall resonance and voice.
The L-00 Vintage body has a beautiful Vintage Sunburst finish, hand-sprayed by the expert luthiers at Gibson for a unique, smooth appearance.
A single-piece mahogany neck is firmly fitted to the body via a compound dovetail neck joint and shaped to a V-profile. The neck is secured using hot hide glue, further enhancing resonance and sound transference throughout the guitar. The neck has a wider nut at 1.75 inches that, along with thye comfortable V-profile, adds to the vintage impression that the L-00 gives. Topping the neck is a 19-fret rosewood fingerboard, decorated with white Mother of Pearl dot inlays to guide you.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The headstock features a vintage inspire white Gibson logo and relic-style strap tuners to keep it true and traditional. At the lower bout of the body, Gibson have employed a rectangle open slot rosewood bridge with a hand-shaped bone saddle. The string spacing on the L-00 Vintage is also wider than usual, facilitating fingerstyle play in particular as it allows more room for an ultimately comfortable playing feel. The black bridge pins draw influence from its historic predecessors for an authentic finish.
The new L-00 Vintage comes with a black hardshell Gibson guitar case, as well as a handy Gibson Acoustic Owner's Manual to help you keep this guitar in the best possible condition for many years to come.
