Acoustic/Steel Strings Guitars
These guitars are Gibson replicas. L-00 Model, 1920 and Epiphone Texan FT-79.
Traditionally crafted. The structure of these guitars is close to identical. The plantilla and inside bars remain the same. Yet the guitars’ upper bout has a small variation to help control one of the soundboards’ vibration modes.
One special highlight about these guitars is related to a historical fact. Previous to World War II these models were produced by Luthiers in smaller and larger studios. After WWII, these guitar sizes’ were slightly modified for cost-saving purposes.
In my studio, we focus on maintaining the traditional size of the guitar.
