The Gibson Acoustic 2018 L-00 Standard Electro Acoustic in Vintage Sunburst is the small-bodied guitar that delivers a generous output. Since its introduction in the 1930s, the L-00 has been favoured by many thanks to its impressive projection, but prefer an easier to transport model due to its size and weight. Built to the same high standards of quality we've come to expect from Gibson, this L-00 is a truly remarkable guitar that is perfect for both in studio and on-stage performances.
The Gibson Acoustic 2018 L-000 Standard is built using mahogany for the back and sides, which produces a rousing mid-range timbre with an enviable warmth that permeates each and every note. The top is crafted from Sitka spruce, a tonewood that is endowed with properties that make it an exceptional soundboard. With an ability to resonate freely with little encouragement, the spruce projects tones with the utmost clarity and power. Scalloped X-bracing supports the top to prevent unwanted warping over time, improving longevity whilst supporting projection. The guitar has been treated to a vintage sunburst finish, which is protected by a slender yet resilient coating of nitrocellulose that allows the finish to age gracefully.
Solid mahogany neck
Fitted to the body is a sturdy and reliable mahogany neck, which inspires a confident playing feel on a guitar so lightweight and small. The neck is shaped to a V profile, which offers a reassuringly guideline along the back of the neck. Married to the neck is a 19-fret rosewood fingerboard decorated with Mother of Pearl dot inlays to guide your way in style. The 24.75-inch scale length and 12-inch radius provide the perfect measurements to glide along, perform string bends, and fret chords with ease.
LR Baggs VTC Element system
The Gibson Acoustic 2018 L-00 Standard is equipped with the L.R. Baggs VTC pickup system, which includes a pre-attached Element pickup, and all-discrete endpin preamp. The system is designed to smoothly deliver the acoustic timbre via an amplifier with absolute transparency. The richness and depth of tone, coupled with an immaculate dynamic response, equates to a faithful representation of your guitar, and your playing skills. The soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls allow you to control your output discreetly, whilst the built-in low frequency crossover prevents any unwanted low-end grunt from over-powering your signal.
A Tusq nut is fitted to ensure the tone remains consistent while keeping the spacing and balance between the strings accurate for optimum acoustic sound. Mini Grover tuning machines are fitted to the headstock, effortlessly upholding tuning integrity with precision. The 2018 L-00 is equipped with a rectangular, closed slot rosewood bridge, which maintains a strong connection between the strings and the body to optimise intonation and sustain.
Each model is supplied with a hardshell case to keep your pride and joy safe at home or on the road. Gibson have also included an accessory kit to help keep your L-00 in pristine condition.
