1931 Gibson L-0 acoustic guitar - a pre-war 12-fret beauty
Back to guitars again now after our double bass detour of the last few days...

Here's an old Gibson for you... it's a 1931 Gibson L-0 in gorgeous condition.

The neck joins the body at the 12th fret as was popular at the time, and I guess some might call this a "parlour guitar" although I always believed that parlour guitars had a much narrower body shape whereas this Gibson has some quite exaggerated curves.

Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $3,995.

  1. Rodney Crowell has been playing one for a few years now.

  2. Neck joins the body at the 12th fret just because in 1931 spanish guitars were everywhere and they still today join at the 12th fret. Beautiful instrument anyway, Iwish I had 4000 dollars!
