Vintage 1920 Gibson L-1 Acoustic Archtop Guitar W/ Ohsc Wow For Sale
Vintage 1920 Gibson L-1 Acoustic Archtop Guitar w/ OHSC WOW!!!
Before I get into all the details on this guitar, it’s important to understand that these guitars are EXTREMELY hard to find in this original condition with the original case. Most of the ones you’ll see out there have had the necks reset, they’ve been refinished, and they’ve had new tuners and tailpieces. This guitar is completely un-messed with, and from what we can tell, it’s 100% original...even down to the ivory tuners (if you look closely, you'll see the grain in the tuners). This comes to us by the way of a local family, who’s had it in their possession for years, and it’s time to send it off to someone who will truly appreciate it. While this guitar is in fantastic condition for the age, it will need the attention of a professional luthier because it has 2 very clean separations where the back meets the sides of the guitar (see photos). Our tech tells us it’s not a major repair and because of how clean the separations are, they should be easy fixes. We don’t like messing with vintage repairs so it’s not something we want to mess with and we’d like to get this to you untouched. There’s a few frets that are sticking up, and we’re going to leave those as well.
The positives on this greatly outweigh the small repair this will need. After the work and a good setup, this will be the best surviving examples of these that you're likely to see, and will still be 100% original! We'll have this tightly packed and fully insured, and it will ship out in a standard shipping box. Thanks for looking and good luck!
