Jeff Buckley’s Gibson L-1access_time First seen circa 1994
Jeff was often photographed playing this guitar in 1994 and early 1995, giving us an approximation of when he acquired it.
Allegedly, the owner of the blonde Telecaster that Jeff played, Janine Nichols, thought that Jeff should keep that guitar since he loved it so much, and agreed she’ll give it away in exchange for a Gibson L-1 acoustic. However, after Buckley bought the L-1, he happened to enjoy it too much to give it away, so he agreed he’d give the Telecaster back instead. He supposedly had some custom guitar ordered to replace the Telecaster, but it arrived only a couple of weeks prior to his death. [MojoPin.org]
