Must-have collector's model - inspired many modern Gibson acoustics

1 agrees

Optimized for fingerstyle playing - low action and wider string spacing appeal to classic picking styles

Cons

Natural volume output is somewhat restrained - likely a result of the mahogany back/sides

The Gibson Robert Johnson L-1 is a classic six-string acoustic guitar that has a unique look and sound because of the quality materials it's constructed with. A high-quality model, the guitar has a 14-fret body style and a Solid Sitka spruce top and Mahogany neck that has an extremely comfortable feel to it. To go with the Honduran Mahogany back and sides, the instrument has an Ebony fingerboard and a Rosewood headplate. Part of the Small Body series, the acoustic guitar is inspired by early 1900s' blues guitarist Robert Johnson and is a tribute to his genre and sound.
