The Gibson L-1 1928 Blues Tribute Acoustic Guitar
When I think of the Gibson acoustic history, something like this really comes to mind. I can see Robert Johnson sitting on a patio in the swamp lands of Missouri, a twig of grass in his mouth and a straw hat on his head as he strums his Gibson acoustic guitar and watches some weeping willows sway in the light summer breeze.
That’s my vision I immediately get when looking at this acoustic guitar, and I like it.
The Gibson 1928 L-1 Blues Tribute acoustic guitar does come at quite a hefty price tag of $3,299 however. I guess this is why Robert Johnson had to sell his soul..

Headstock | Gibson 1928 L-1 Blues Tribute Acoustic Guitar
The Gibson headstock actually has a Mother of Pearl inlaid The Gibson, a very unique piece of nostalgic history. I also really appreciate the vintage open back 3-in-line tuners used on this, yet another piece of history returned into this acoustic guitar.

Have you used this guitar? I’d love to hear how it sounds to your ear.
I’d give my non-strumming baby finger to have one of these..
