1946 Gibson LG-2

No FON. Now here's something special -- a crack-free, stunning, and perfectly playable script logo LG-2! As with so many '46 Gibsons, there is something magical about this guitar. It's wide-open but not flabby, has strength across the strings, and a fat punchy midrange that makes melody lines jump from the soundhole. Scalloped braced Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides, 1-3/4" wide mahogany neck with a chunky round feel -- but much more manageable than a Banner.

Completely original but for the tuning machines that are at most 5 years younger than the rest of the guitar, and newer bridge pins. A few very neatly reglued braces inside, and a cleanly reglued original bridge; very well set-up with action of 5 to 7 64ths, and room to adjust lower if desired. Original finish and frets show very little playwear, although there are light surface dings and lacquer craze-lines throughout. Gorgeous '46 reddish sunburst finish, great patina and looks. A seriously fine LG-2.

With newer hardshell case
