The L-00 Vintage offers a mahogany neck, hand sanded to its final vintage style, "V" neck profile and fitted with larger legend fret wire. The L-00 Vintage immediately feels like a truly historic instrument from the moment you pick it up! Gibson's own Thermally Aged Adirondack red spruce top wood is joined with mahogany back and sides, producing one of the most artistic small-body acoustic of this century. Our proprietary Thermally Aged wood best recreates the vintage tone and performance of our iconic models.
