How to Build a Guitar

1939 Gibson L-00 Maple German Spruce


This is a 1st quality kit from Blues Creek Guitars
This is a new kit that is based off a 1939 L00 I owned. This one is maple with a Sitka spruce top. I did use a Martin scale fretboard of 25.4 Ebony with 1 11/16 in nut and 2 1/8 in at the 12 th fret and bridge. The neck joint is dovetail and this neck is also a Mahogany. There is a smiley valoute on the back if the head stock.
There is an ebony bridge to match the fretboard. Bone nut , saddle are included. There are 7 MOP dots included but not installed in case you would prefer to do other inlay. The fret board is slotted and radiused.
the back and sides are Mahogany and the back and top are glued up and thinned for the kit. The bracing location is laid out and the braces are smaller 1/4 braces that were in my old L00. The back also has smaller than Martin style braces so we did to be more Gibson than martin.
The binding is included. Ebony pin for the bridge and end pin. The tuners are Klutson tone pro as they are as close to the old tuners I can find. I am sure this will make a nice kit. The pickguard is a dark tortoise in the gibson shape. Please ask any question you wish. We are here to help
