Lovies Guitars is offering up this Gorgeous Rare 1997 Gibson CL-20 Standard Plus with a Beautiful Natural Spruce Top! Gibson Custom Line-20 Standard Plus originated in 1997 as a “thin-shouldered” dreadnought flat-top with a solid spruce top and Chechen arched back and sides. This particular instrument’s serial number (91007034) indicates it was made on the 100th day of 1997, and was the 34th instrument made that day. This is significant because Gibson’s Custom Line series started at the Bozeman, Montana, plant in that year but quickly morphed into the Songbird/ Songwriter series starting in 1998, with the last Songwriter produced in 2008. Thus this CL-20 is one of a rather rare breed. The CL-20 has a 14/20-fret rosewood finger board with notched diamond abalone inlay, a tortoise two-point pick guard, a multi-stripe and abalone inlaid rosette, a rosewood bird-and-beak bridge with white pins, and full body binding, top and back. For larger venues it has a factory transducer pickup accessed through the end pin jack. It is clearly designed to represent a beautiful—even flashy–guitar, but also with the quality materials and huge sound for which Gibsons have been famous for decades. The finest tone woods were used on these guitars. This guitar is absolutely fantastic for its sound and overall condition! Neck is straight and action is very nice. Guitar sounds really rich and vibrant. Very few were made! They are highly regarded for their build quality and sound from everyone who has played or owned one. This instrument is in Great Shape, with a fair bit of light finish marks and very minor indents all over body, finish checking all over body, a minor spot on the neck behind the 1st fret with slight finish wear, also should be noted that the original case is pretty beat up. All Original- NO Breaks, Cracks or Repairs! Includes COA & Original Hard-Shell Case!!!!!!
