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...

1966 Gibson LG1  –  £1649

1966 Gibson LG1 – £1649

This 1966 Gibson LG1 is a great example of an affordable 60’s Gibson, with authentic tone that no modern guitar can come close to. Visually it’s just what you’d want from a 60’s Gibson, a vivid cherry sunburst and striking pickguard. Tonally it’s bright and punchy,...

2002 Gibson Advanced Jumbo AJ  –  £1849

2002 Gibson Advanced Jumbo AJ – £1849

It’s quite unusual to find a natural topped Advanced Jumbo, and at 17 years old the Spruce top has darkened to a honey colour which really sets of the tiger stripe pickguard. The Rosewood back and sides together with the slope shoulder dreadnought body shape, give the...

2007 Gibson Nick Lucas  –  £2199

2007 Gibson Nick Lucas – £2199

Gibson’s collaboration with Nick Lucas gave birth to one of the most desirable models ever. A traditional 00 shape body, but deeper than normal, with Flamed Maple back and sides - this gives a full bass, crisp, sparkling top-end, and exceptional tonal balance....
