I'm a man of many lists though. So do try to not define me by this specific one. We will all be happier that way. I've considered changing this one, as it is dated quite a few years back, and specifically in regards to the Gibson currently listed here. I absolutely feel there are more current guitars which could be here, and that I should always have a Gibson acoustic on this specific list, or other similar sorts of lists.
I feel this way because Gibson is a fantastic make, and though I tend to be much more a Martin sort of guy, this is just me and my particular feelings for the kinds of music I more like to play, and that has little to do with quality of guitars which might trend more for styles I'm not so comfortable with playing. Like your Gibson L 00.
Brian, over at Musician's Friend has vids where he's playing one in the style I'd want to play, and then a few more as well, and he's making it sound great, as you would expect. He's pretty good with a number of styles.
You already know it is a fantastic guitar for what you paid for it, but when you see the nitro finish, which is the most difficult finish to apply, then you know something is top notch. Scalloped bracing, and of course it is light as a feather with the mahogany body.
Please don't take this in any way wrong, but I would personally prefer the 14 fret L 00, and I know they make one which is 14 fret, and also 12 fret.
I guess the great Robert Johnson would have wanted the 12 fret, but me, a not at all famous guy, would prefer the 14 fet. Heh.
It's a country blues or delta blues sort of canon. You don't have to play slide, but you know how great it will sound were you to play some bottleneck slide with it, and it is a fingerpicker's delight.
