Overview

These '20s Gibson Ls have an 0-sized body with a curvy outline and a quite short 24 1/4" scale. The tops are carved spruce with round soundholes and vaguely look like Gibson mandolin-style instruments in vibe, though they have V-shaped tonebar bracing on the inside rather than "just" a below-soundhole ladder brace. The mix of a carved-top, short scale, and small body with a steep break-angle on the bridge/saddle yields a forward, punchy, all-mids voice that has a snappy high-end and a woody sweetness to its character. It works fine for flatpicking in a choppy vintage style but it really shines for fingerpicking both bare and metal-tipped.
