1948 Gibson LG2 – £4999

NEW ARRIVAL  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 X bracing, making the guitar extremely resonant – a surprisingly big sound for a small bodied guitar. It’s rare to find such an early example. 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 50’s equivalents. 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’s in surprisingly good shape for it’s age – all the cool looking lacquer checking is the giveaway. There’s a wear patch on the back of the neck, and a heavy ding on the treble side rim by the waist. Other than that it’s in excellent condition. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.
