1934 Gibson L-OO




This late 1934 Gibson L-OO (FON 1325) is a one-family instrument that has been well cared for. It was kept in the home and used for social occasions. The top is an unmatched set of Adirondack spruce. The mahogany back and sides  show only one small repaired injury in the treble side upper bout. The mahogany neck has the full V-shape profile that was consistently used during this time. The tapered headstock retains the original Waverly strip tuners. The silkscreened “Gibson” headstock logo is untouched. The adjustable truss rod works well. The original ebony nut is intact and uninjured. The Brazilian rosewood fingerboard recently received a refret. The original Brazilian rosewood bridge was reglued and a new bone saddle was made. The replacement pin set is from Stewart-MadDonald. The firestripe pickgurd is completely intact, with original finish. The voice is colorful and quickly responsive. With ca. 1939 Geib Challenge chipboard case.
