vintage acoustic guitar 301032306022478440 Vintage Gibson L 1 L1 Acoustic Guitar Duke Robillard

This amazing guitar was purchased from a broker handling the sale of a couple of vintage guitars from Duke robillard's personal collection. It is a 1917 Gibson L-1 guitar, complete with original pickguard, tailpiece, bridge and case!!! I also have the certificate of authenticity given to me by the broker, signed by Mr. Robillard. Mr. Robillard is an important blues guitar player, and has won numberous awards, including 2001 Best Blues Guitarist, and a Grammy nomination, and 2010 BMA Traditional Male Blues Artist of the year!. 

The broker gave me this comment in Duke's own words concerning this guitar: "I have owned this guitar longer than any other...over 20 years. I sold it once, but missed it so much that I bought it back soon after. It is a great playing example and can be used on gigs and recording sessions. It has had a refret so plays great. Really nice vintage acoustic tone, reminiscent of a premium archtop tone more so than an acoustic tone...really warm and mellow. There are one or two back cracks that were sealed but I think it is rock solid now and nothing has moved in about twenty years! The back had shrunk just a little and was does not line up perfectly at the rear strap button, but it is tight and also has not moved in twenty years. There is one strip of tuners that is not original. Fantastic vintage layer in really nice condition!"
