Has anyone ever purchased a guitar on Reverb site? I've seen some really nice Gibson acoustics there and just wondered if anyone had ever had experience dealing with the site.
Cheryl Crow playing a Gibson on Good Morning America right now! :-)
A 2006 Gibson LC-1 at Wolfe Guitars in Jupiter, FL:
They are asking $1150...Montana made, solid Sitka spruce over solid Indian rosewood...
Interesting......look at this "definition of a parlor guitar"...>12 inch lower bout, 12 fret-22 to 25 scale, 3 1/2 inch sound hole! This from the "History of the Parlor Guitar" by Cassandra Maier.
What is the definition of a parlor guitar? I have seen the Gibson L1 like tghe one being held by Robert Johnson in the "suit photo" described as a parlor guitar. It seems a little too large for that description.
(I have also asked this in the small bodied guitar forum.)
If you look at my post to your discussion 'New Guitar', you will find a pix of my L-130.
Specs are Grand Concert size (11 1/4" upper, 14 7/8" lower – 41" overall length – 24.75" scale, 14 frets to the body – 1 11/16 neck at nut, 1 9/16 string spacing there, 2 3/16 string spacing at saddle) the box is 4 3/4" deep at the lower bout and 4" at the neck joint. Spruce top, bubinga back and sides, mahogany neck – Grover tuners.
Hope that helps.
