Comments about Gibson L-20 Parlor Custom Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I am lucky enough to actually own one of the few available in North America of the limited production for this model.
The 'Mystic Rosewood' makes each instrument uniquely beautiful. One of my band mates has a J45 Mystic rosewood and it is also strikingly beautiful in its own special way. The 3 per side gold Waverly open back tuning machines are fitting in look and provide perfect tuning. The natural finish on the neck matches perfectly with the guitar body rosewood and spruce top. It is a museum quality marriage of wood and color. The head stock flowerpot, neck blocks and sound hole rosette are all real mother of pearl. Visually each guitar is one of a kind.
The sound of this instrument is wonderful, full bass, clear mids and sparkling highs. The body style is the same as the Gibson Special made for Nick Lucas. L0 top and back (almost a martin 000) size with a dreadnought 5" back thickness and back arch that sitting on the back allows it to rock like a rocking chair. This guitar booms with voice like clarity. The neck and body join is so good neck harmonics are super easy to find even on the 2nd, 3rd and 5th frets. 7th, 9th, 12th and 17th harmonics ring like a bell. This hangs with anyone for any style. Your bluegrass buds will love this as much as your jazz 30-40's buds. This does cowboy country music all day long with no sweat. Strumming, picking finger style, bluegrass, country, jazz, no problem for this guitar. I've tried all three gauges and use nanoweb custom lights, 11's, on mine.
The LR Baggs Lyric microphone preamp is prone to feed back and eats batteries like there is no tomorrow. turn off by unplugging when not in use. make sure you have fresh batteries before performing and if you use this for more than a 45-60 min set you can actually expect to change batteries because the volume drop off while performing as the batteries loose charge is noticeable. To avoid feedback problems you have to adjust the guitar so you can hear it w/o fb and then use the volume knobs at the amp or board. For recording it should be mic'ed. Performing the vocal mic seems to pickup enough while standing singing for any self respecting 4-5 piece country rock band in any bar I've played in. The guitar itself is loud.
If you love rare vintage style collectible guitars uniqueness of clear wood finishes, seeing the wood grain of all the woods in your instrument, expect the best materials, want real mother of pearl and not pearloid and then expect that instrument to sound as good or better than any other rosewood body bridge, spruce top, mahogany neck guitar. This is a limited edition, rare one of a kind out of the box guitar.
better hurry before I snag the last one Musicians Friend has.
