Gibson unveils two new 2014 acoustics

L-1 Blues Tribute and L-00 Vintage Value revealed

Gibson has unveiled two new pre-war style acoustics for 2014, the 1932 L-00 Vintage Value and the 1928 L-1 Blues Tribute.

First up is the 1928 L-1 Blues Tribute, which joins the Robert Johnson L-1 as the second iteration of this popular bluesman's guitar in Gibson's acoustic range. The L-1 Blues Tribute features an Adirondack Red Spruce top with mahogany back and sides, and comes with a price tag of $3299.

The L-1 is joined by the 1932 L-00 Vintage Value, another popular pre-war Gibson model that was made famous thanks to an association with Woody Guthrie. The L-00 also has an Adirondack Red Spruce top and mahogany back and sides, with a '30s V-shape mahogany neck and a price tag of $4999. Wonder what Woody would make of that...
