Description

We’re proud to announce our latest parternship—this time with local luthier Larry Brown—with six incredible guitars from L-00 copies and Dreadnoughts to SJs and Classicals.


This is one of a pair of new L-00 guitars based on 1932 Gibson specs, complete with Honduran Mahogany back and sides and Adirondack Spruce tops and sunburst. The short scale, 14-fret neck is fully adjustable at the heel, meaning you can keep the setup exactly where you want it with just the twist of a screwdriver. Additionally, they feature trapezoidal cross section bracing, but with morticed brace ends and shiplapped x-braces for added strength. Non scalloped bracing, hot hide glue construction, and a period-matching tiger stripe celluloid pickguard. These guitars soak up fingerpicking quite handily, of course for blues but also great for folk or Americana. Warm, thumping bass response is paired with quick, dry trebles and lots of bark.

If you’re like me, you always wanted a great, old small-bodied Gibson for that beautiful Mahogany clarity and punch, but you often long for modern playability and precision. What Larry Brown has done here is offered us both. His design is true to the 1932 Gibson specifications, but for the addition of the welcome adjustable neck a modern feature that ensures perfect playability for years to come. I have played many vintage L-00 guitars and this one has all the tone, and you’ll appreciate how well it plays.
