Gibson has unveiled two new pre-war style acoustics for 2014, the 1932 L-00 Vintage Value and the 1928 L-1 Blues Tribute.

First up is the 1928 L-1 Blues Tribute, which joins the Robert Johnson L-1 as the second iteration of this popular bluesman's guitar in Gibson's acoustic range. The L-1 Blues Tribute features an Adirondack Red Spruce top with mahogany back and sides, and comes with a price tag of $3299.
