S/N: 11020045, dated to April 12 2010 at the Gibson Acoustic plant in scenic Bozeman, Montana.
The Gibson Robert Johnson small body guitar is based on the 1926 Gibson L-1 seen in one of the few photos of Johnson, and has a spruce top and mahogany body.

For having a relatively short career and a total of only 42 recordings including out-takes, Robert Johnson became extremely influential, far outside the fairly narrow delta blues genre. One of his most prominent advocates, long after his death, was Eric Clapton, who re-recorded many Johnson tunes in other blues and rock formats.

The Robert Johnson L-1 was introduced in 2007 at the Gibson Acoustic plant in Bozeman, Montana under the supervision of Ren Ferguson. It's a small guitar, and its 25 inch scale length, while long for a Gibson, feels shorter, possibly because of the neck having 12 frets to the body. This example dates to April 12, 2010, and is in very nice condition with just the lightest fretwear. It does have a passive under-saddle pickup, with endpin jack. The original hardshell case is included.
