Beloved since the 1930s for its balanced tone and incredible projection, the L-00 is a true classic. The 2019 L-00 Studio model improves on this legendary, hand-built design with walnut back and sides and a sitka spruce top with traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing. The LR Baggs VTC sings with beautiful, transparent sound, but with the way the L-00 fills a room you may not need it.
About Gibson Montana:
Luthier Orville Gibson founded the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co. Ltd. in Kalamazoo, MI in 1902. Its original aim was to make mandolins and mandolin-family instruments. Over the last 100-plus years, Gibson Brands, Inc., as it is now known, has since evolved into the world’s premier manufacturer of semi-hollow and hollow body electric guitars, as well as a celebrated portfolio of innovative solid-body and acoustic models.
“Some people hear their own inner voices with great clearness. And they live by what they hear. Such people become crazy... or they become legend.” So wrote Montana author Jim Harrison, perhaps about the master luthiers of Gibson Montana, which produces all of Gibson’s acoustic guitars.
