Back of peghead shows slight chipping from leaning against walls. A few lines of snaky finish checking and a few dings appear on the guitar. None are deep nor puckered. There are two significant dings into the finish and a few very minor scrapes. There are no large areas of wear anywhere, but one small area of fingernail wear at the bottom of pickguard near the end of the bridge. Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Fingerboard has beautiful rosewood, with fabulous character (see photo). Cream-black-cream binding on top, with single cream binding on back and sides, all antique'd. Original Kluson DeLuxe tuners.

Gibson L-1 1 Buy Gibson L-1 1 1918 Gibson L-1 Guitar 'In Stock'

     Extremely Early Gibson Flattop Guitar - one of the earliest we've seen...
     Excellent condition. This is one for the museums! Earliest example of a flat top, flat back guitar we've ever seen from Gibson. Example of the earliest "A-frame" bracing that Gibson employed until around 1926/27.
     24 1/4" Scale Length. Shellac finish. BIRCH back and sides, with Red Spruce top. Pumpkin color. 1 13/16" width of fingerboard at nut. Dyed Pearwood fingerboard and peghead overlay. The Gibson silkscreen silver logo. Original Ebony nut. Original small frets. Tuners appear to be original 3 on a plate, with original buttons in good shape. Bridge is Ebony and appears to be original. Who knows - this guitar is early enough that it may be that Gibson just bought a bridge for this early guitar because they hadn't designed a flat top bridge before this time.
     Back and sides may have been refinished at some point... but looks to be also a Shellac finish. Top seems to be original finish with typical "leather dye" sienna color under the shellac finish.
     The historical record of the early days of Gibson evolving their L-1 from an arched top and back, to a flat top with arched back, to these first flat top AND flat back A-frame braced examples is rather murky and incomplete. Hopefully this guitar will stand as a useful piece to this ongoing puzzle...
     * This cool old Gibson was previously shown on these pages as "display only", but we are currently offering this guitar for sale.
