1947 – 51 Gibson LG2 – £2799

SOLD  The LG2 was made from 1942 – 1962, possibly the most desirable small bodied post war Gibson model available. It’s a 00 size guitar with very desirable X bracing, making the guitar extremely resonant – a surprisingly big sound for a small bodied guitar. It’s quite rare to find such an early example, with the desirable tapered headstock, and the most obvious difference to the later LG2’s is the neck – it’s fuller feeling – meaning it carries richer tone and greater sustain than more easy to find later 50’s equivalents. With just one repaired top crack, the guitar is in fantastic playing condition, and the tobacco burst is simply stunning. Tonally it’s one of those guitars that just makes you want to play and play, reminiscent of so many old blues recordings. The guitar has a K and K Pure pickup fitted, and even comes in it’s original croc hard case.
