GIBSON L-1 REPLICA
Being a fan of early blues music, I decided to make a replica of the famous Robert Johnson guitar, the Gibson L-1, based on plans taken from a 1926 model. I modified the design slightly by using a V shaped radius on the neck and using turquoise for the inlays. I also made a pyramid bridge with boxwood capstones to add a little more detail. The rest of the guitar is faithful to the 1920’s original, including the original H bracing on the top.
“Excellent playability and sound quality with lovely, eye-catching details. An instant favourite.”
