Gibson Catalog 1923

The 1923 Gibson product catalogs includes a variety of stringed instruments, including their renowned mandolins, guitars, and banjos.

Gibson is already famous for their mandolins, like the A and F series, known for their powerful sound and exquisite craftsmanship. With Lloyd Loar, one of their most innovative designers during this period, Gibson is at the forefront of acoustic instrument design.

For guitars, this is a period before the dominance of the flat-top design, with archtop guitars like the L-5 (introduced by Lloyd Loar in 1922) starting to gain popularity for their louder, clearer sound which is suitable for band settings.

The banjos from Gibson are also a highlight.
