It is certainly an inspiration to play Gibson Acoustic’s 1937 L-00—an exact replica of one of the world’s most legendary acoustic guitars. This painstaking recreation is based on renowned guitarist Lee Roy Parnell’s original 1937 L-00. “I never thought it possible, but the new 1937 L-00 is actually better than my original,” Parnell said. “It is very inspiring to play.” Amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail on the L-00 reproduces the rich, remarkable Gibson tone made famous by hundreds of blues and country players.
Includes hardshell case.
Custom Made White Button Tuners
Gibson’s 1937 L-00 acoustic features period-correct white button tuners that are custom made for this guitar using the exact dimensions and design as on the original 1937 model. Each one is painstakingly reproduced with precise handcrafted detail, ensuring the highest quality vintage tuner not available on any other instrument.
A rosette is the beautiful, hand-crafted circle around the soundhole, and can be one of the most ornamental elements of any acoustic guitar. It is also one of the most subtle and complicated woodworking decorations on any acoustic guitar. The rosette on the 1937 L-00 is a single-ring rosette consisting of three-ply binding, adding a stylish, understated elegance to the 1937 L-00.
Rosewood Fingerboard with Traditional Binding and Classic Dot Inlays
The fingerboard of Gibson’s 1937 L-00 is constructed from the highest grade rosewood on earth, which is personally inspected and qualified by Gibson’s team of skilled experts before it enters the Gibson factories. The resilience of this durable wood makes the fingerboard extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. The L-00’s classic dot inlays are made of genuine mother of pearl, and are inserted into the fingerboard using a process that eliminates gaps and doesn’t require the use of fillers. The fingerboard also sports traditional binding over the fret ends, which was a staple feature of many classic Gibson acoustics for many years.
Body Tonewoods (back, sides and top)
The 1937 L-00’s top is made from Adirondack red spruce, while the back and sides are constructed from Honduran mahogany, giving the 1937 L-00 a combination of tonewoods and features that produce a volume and clarity not expected from such a small guitar, and the rich, warm tone central to the traditional blues tones of the early 1900s. Selecting the right wood, and the formula to dry it out, are two of the most central procedures to Gibson’s guitar-building process. Beginning with its first catalog in 1903, Gibson has assured its customers that every guitar would be built using woods with “the most durable, elastic, and sonorous qualities,” and today’s guitars from Gibson Acoustic are no different.
Every acoustic guitar made by Gibson features hand-scalloped, radiused top bracing inside the body, a feature normally found only in limited run, hand-made guitars. By scalloping each brace by hand, the natural sound of the acoustic is focused more toward the center of the body, enhancing the instrument’s sound projection. The bracing pattern inside Gibson Acoustic’s 1937 L-00 is identical to the tall “X” design inside the original 1937 L-00. This traditional pattern delivers a tight, bassy tone, with warm, woody midrange and evenly balanced tone across all six strings, making it more than capable to meet today’s uncompromising standards among blues and roots guitar players.
