2018 Gibson LG2 Legend – £2199
SOLD In 2018 Gibson Custom Shop released a very short run of only 5 LG2 Tribute guitars, and tried to make the most authentic sounding LG2 by using a thermally aged Adirondack Red Spruce top. This model was put together by a very small team in Montana and the quality really shows. They thermally ‘bake’ the top before using the wood to kill any live cells, thus ageing the tone. The guitar has been made using hide glue to bind it all together, which creates the most solid connection between woods, allowing all the individual parts of the guitar to work as one for the ultimate resonance and sustain. The guitar has a smoother hand rubbed and oiled fingerboard and bridge, and the hand sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer is hand rubbed to create a vintage finish. This guitar is definitely a success, having Its signature warm / dark sound, which has been captured on countless records. It features an LR Baggs VTC pickup with volume and tone controls mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in it’s original Gibson embossed hard case.
