Gibson Acoustic

L-00 Standard

The legendary Gibson small body with a full J-45 sound. Developed in the 30’s, the L-00 was for years an industry standard. The 2016 L-00 Standard captures the heritage of those exemplary early models. So perfectly balanced that the L-00 has unparalleled projection not found in comparable small body guitars. Spec’d just like the iconic J-45 this small body guitar features mother-of-pearl Gibson headstock logo, black Graph Tech Tusq nut, and nickel mini Grover tuners. Upgraded with LR Baggs Element VTC pickup system with Volume, Tone, and Compression.


Street Price: $3,008
