The legendary Gibson small body with a full J-45 sound

Developed in the '30s, the L-00 was for years an industry standard. The 2016 L-00 Standard captures the heritage of those exemplary early models. So perfectly balanced that the L-00 has unparalleled projection not found in comparable small body guitars. Spec’d just like the iconic J-45 including mother-of-pearl Gibson inlay, black Graph Tech nut, and LR BaggsTM VTC pickup.

The body of the L-00 Standard is crafted from a solid Sitka spruce top with scalloped X-bracing, plus solid mahogany back and sides for the perfect blend of clarity, depth and volume from a small-body acoustic. The Vintage Sunburst finish in nitrocellulose lacquer is hand-sanded with finer grit sandpaper and polishing compounds for a high-gloss finish. The mahogany neck attached with a compound dovetail joint using hot hide glue, and topped with a one-piece rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl dots and rounded fingerboard edges for a smooth playing feel.
