L-1 Guitars

If you're a fan of the Delta blues, then you need no introduction to the Gibson L-1. For those who aren't familiar with this work of art, it was originally sold in 1902 as an archtop (it was reintroduced as a flat top in 1926). The L-1 was the six-string of choice for many now-legendary blues musicians - most notably Robert Johnson. Today, Gibson still designs L-1 guitars that remain faithful to the original - of course, if you're in the market for an acoustic-electric version of the L-1, you'll find one of those here as well.

Whether you're a collector who wants a musical masterpiece to show off to like-minded enthusiasts or a stage veteran who's looking for an instrument that reflects your strong passion for the blues, the L-1 guitar for you is in this catalog. To kick things off, check out the Gibson 1928 L-1 Blues Tribute Acoustic Guitar Vintage Sunburst. Boasting a solid Adirondack red spruce top and mahogany back and sides, the warm, expressive tone of this guitar needs to be heard by anyone who loves the Delta blues. Other top-notch features include a 12-fret parlor-size body for plenty of projection, and vintage relic tuners that add only further to its authenticity.

After you're finished drooling over the model mentioned, turn your attention over to its acoustic-electric counterpart. The Gibson 2016 1928 L-1 Blues Tribute Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a performing musician's dream come true; from its Thermally Cured Adirondack red spruce top to its period-correct faded vintage sunburst finish, it's easy to understand why this guitar is a legend in and of itself. As for its electronics, this powerhouse is loaded with an L.R. Baggs Lyrics preamp system to amplify its natural tonal characteristics for your audience to enjoy.

L-1 guitars are made for the true bluesman - it's really that simple. A guitar like the L-1 has such a rich and important history, you can bet that Gibson only employs their finest luthiers in its creation - and it's obvious, right down to the smallest component. When you're ready to experience what a genuine blues machine feels, plays and sounds like, grab an L-1 and be whisked back to a time of smoke-filled nightclubs and 78 rpm records.
