Tucson Folk Shop

I was down in Tucson this morning on business. Since I got done early I hit the standard shops before heading back to Phoenix metro.

While down at The Folk Shop, they guys told me to take a look at the Gibson they just got in. Ok I'm game, but not normally a fan of the "Gibson Sound".

Takes me a little while to figure out how to open the case. Guitar is in pretty good shape, some soundboard wear, but not bad. It's an L-00.

Start fingerpicking...

WOW... Easy to play, lots of sustain and overtones, none of the typical Gibson "thunk". Really , really pretty sounding guitar.

Oh it was made in 1937.

Also way outside my price range, but whoever buys it will be getting a really nice instrument.
