The focused, saturated response of a beautifully aged carved spruce top and warm, balanced projection of stained solid maple back and sides makes this 1935 Gibson L-30 Archtop Acoustic Guitar a perfect pre-war companion for blues, country, and folk players alike, with a satisfying soft-V mahogany neck and low, even action across a familiar rosewood fingerboard. With plenty of life left in the frets, this well-traveled archtop has a lot left to give in-session, onstage, or as an inspired addition to any home collection. Notes:
