    Late 40s Gibson LG-2 anyone?

    Gibson’s LG series were introduced in 1942, with a starting line-up of LG-1, LG-2 and LG-3. However, LG-1 and LG-3 stopped production almost immediately after their debut, until they were re-introduced in 1945. All models were 14 ⅛” wide, with mahogany back and sides and ladder bracing for the LG-1, while the LG-2 and LG-3 were X-braced.

    Apart from the large repaired crack, this guitar is in good shape. Its been oversprayed though this is evidently an job carried out a while ago, the bracing has been re-glued too. The top shows some lacquer checking but no other structural issues. The sides shows some marks and again some checking. The pickguard was not fitted following the overspray.

    The neck is in good shape, lacquer checking on the back with minimal wear, the fretboard is in great condition with plenty of life left in the original frets. There is no sign of a reset or any work being carried out on the neck. A strap button has been fitted at some stage. The headstock has been refinished and the incorrect logo fitted. From the logo we could say that the work was carried out in either the late 60s or 70s due to the lack of a dot on the i. Tuners are later Double line Kluson.

    The guitar comes with its correct gator skin case.

    These Gibson have fantastic overtone-rich sound. The trebles are thick and meaty supported by the mids beautifully.

    On the lookout for something a little different then this might be the one for you.
