The Gibson Acoustic L-00 Studio Rosewood is descended from Gibson’s legendary 1932 L-00. Whether you think of it as a “parlor guitar” or a “blues box,” the easy-playing L-00 Studio is perfect for recording and acoustic jams. In the studio, aim a small-diaphragm condenser mic at the 12th fret and you’re all set for sweet acoustic tone that will hold its own in a thick arrangement. The diminutive size and narrow waist deliver a focused sound that sits great in your track, while its generous lower bout serves up surprisingly robust bottom end. Onstage, the guitar’s onboard LR Baggs Element Bronze electronics amplify that rich tone to perfection. And with its vintage nitro finish and faux tortoise pickguard, all eyes will be on you when you take the stage with the Gibson Acoustic L-00 Studio Rosewood.
LR Baggs Element Bronze acoustic pickup system
To provide you with a natural sound that faithfully captures the true character of your guitar, Gibson selected LR Baggs’ Element Bronze electronics. The Element Bronze features a low-profile under-saddle transducer with a unique flexible sensing element, which — at only the thickness of a hair — is highly responsive to string vibrations. Unlike other under-saddle pickups, the Element Bronze does not respond to pressure, thereby eliminating the notorious piezo “quack!” Instead, you’re treated to a warm, open, and dynamic amplified acoustic tone with a delicate high end, crisp mids, and focused lows. Now, when you step onstage, you’ll never feel like you’re sacrificing your tone for the convenience of plugging in!
Classic Gibson craftsmanship for impeccable sound, looks, and playability
Gibson’s reputation as a fine guitar builder dates back to the late 1800s. Handcrafted since day one by some of the most skilled luthiers around, Gibson acoustic guitars have inspired countless players around the world. When you pick up a Gibson acoustic, you know you’re getting the finest tonewoods, quality hardware, and incredible attention to detail. These instruments are built to sound great and stand the test of time. After moving from Kalamazoo, Michigan to Nashville, Tennessee (where Gibson electric guitars continue to be made), Gibson finally settled their acoustic operation in Bozeman, Montana, where they continue to handcraft some of the finest guitars on the planet.
