    Just What I Wanted

    I play a 60's era Epiphone Cortez and wanted something inexpensive for traveling. Though the tone isn't as seasoned or complex as the Cortez, I like everything about the EL-00. Very comfortable neck, especially for short hands, light weight, and plenty loud enough for a jam session. I ordered it with the TUSQ nut, but found the tone really improved when I installed a bone saddle and switched to medium-light strings. The sunburst is beautifully done, and overall it looks and feels like a much more expensive guitar. Just a great, everyday player.

    My EL-00

    Yes I am blown away by this little guitar.
    I own a Gibson J-180 and a 1974 Aria Jumbo western and I needed a grab and play guitar and saw this little guitar on Youtube. After reading reviews and watching a few videos I ordered ordered one along with the (equally as impressive) case .
    It plays and sounds great right out of the box and the EL-00 has that vintage 30's blues box look.
    I could go on, but get your own, you won't regret it!

    A GREAT VALUE and my go - to grab and play

    A very good friend has an original pre war Gibson L00 which I love. , Gibson offers a Custom Shop for 6K and vintage ones fetch between 4K and 5K , so when I saw this guitar , I gave it a shot.
    Was I surprised.
    The workmanship is pretty good for the price point and the sound really surprised me.
    The smaller size is a plus for those who can't get comfy with a drednaught.
    Still looking for an "affordable " Gibson L00 , but this guitar is a keeper !
