    This embodiment of acoustic blues sound is an exact replica of Lee Parnell's original.

    The Gibson 1937 L-00 Acoustic Guitar is a meticulous remake with a solid Adirondack spruce top and premium mahogany back and sides. In the late 1920s, the small-bodied Gibson L-00 guitar won enduring popularity for its sassy style and bluesy sound.

    Gibson equips the 1937 L-00 remake with nickel Grover tuners for vintage authenticity, a bone nut and saddle, and rosewood bridge and fingerboard. The bracing offers an exact replica of Gibson's 1930s bracing dimensions, down to the saw-blade marks. The modern L-00 guitar's neck is also an exact replica of Gibson's 1937 large "V" neck.

      Comments about Gibson 1937 L-00 Acoustic Guitar:

      I love the L00 legend from the first moment I had it in my hands.At first,I thought the neck would be too thick for my small to medium size hands, but this is not the case at all.In fact,the neck feels great with amazing craftsmanship,and now I want nothing less.The L00 convienced me, that rosewood surpasses ebony for the fretboard.The guitar is much lighter and more responsive than the Collings C10 I once owned.The L00 Legend's sound is one of the best of the many new guitars I have tried and owned.It just feels right,and I can highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a high end small guitar.

      Not the real thing...

      By VintageISbetter

      Comments about Gibson 1937 L-00 Acoustic Guitar:

      Okay so one of my bud's bought this thing for its Vintage Appeal...I have a 1932 K-11 Kalamazoo and this thing doesn't touch it. The Kalamazoo is like a gift from God to a blues player; slide and everything, but this thing is like a Sheryl Crow pop stars acoustic....I know Kalamazoos are hard to find but come on Gibson, you can do WAY better

      Only for well-heeled tone purists

      By KDHodges

      from Nashville, TN

      Comments about Gibson 1937 L-00 Acoustic Guitar:

      I decided on the Legend Series 1937 L-00 after trying several small-bodied guitars considered ideal for playing country and delta blues(the RJ signature, the Blues King, luthier-made copies of the L-00 and L-1, Stellas and luthier-made copies of Stellas, etc.), and this guitar came the closest to nailing the vintage tone I was looking for: thumpy bass, rich mids, singing highs, but with an uncomplicated tone and a quick decay. In a pinch, I have sold every other guitar I've ever owned, but this one will be in my estate at my death (or maybe buried along with me). That said, as great a guitar as it is, I do think it's way overpriced. Who cares that the tool marks are the same as on Lee Roy Parnell's guitar? Why must Gibson scour the finish to impart an "antique" look? I can make my own dings and scratches, thank you.
