1934 Gibson L-10
1934 Gibson L-10 in very good condition. If you follow our shop you know we have a soft sport for black L-10s. This guitar is the model described in the catalog from 1934. It is solid carved northern maple back and sides, and eastern spruce top (Gibson's terms). The finish is the unmistakable deep ebony only found on Gibsons. Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard and picture frame inlays. We reset the neck to get the proper bridge height. The original bridge top had been cut down son we made an exact reproduction. Recent refret with our favorite size fret wire for archtops Stewmac #141. Reproduction celluloid pickguard made here and finished with lacquer and period mounting hardware. As you would expect playability is excellent and action can be adjusted to suit playing style. We prefer to set these up with medium gauge strings to drive the top and get the most volume. The sound is thick in the midrange and loves a heavy right hand attack. A wonderful guitar for rhythm playing. Includes new Guardian hard case.
