If you always wanted to own a small bodied Gibson acoustic from the 50s, but just couldn’t justify the price tag, we have a solution. Here is a player-grade Gibson LG-1 from 1959.
This guitar has a lot of cool finish checking and playwear that give it that quintessential vintage look. There are dings and scratches as well as some finish scuffing on the bottom, but honestly nothing that takes anything away from the overall cool vibe of the guitar. A center seam crack on the top has been glued. Also, the pickguard was removed and reglued during the repair of a few small pickguard cracks. The guitar has also been refretted and plays well up and down the neck. Original tuners replaced with Gold Grover Rotomatics.
Replaced bone nut has a width of 1 23/32 inches. Mahogany neck with a 24 5/8 inch scale length. 20 frets on a Rosewood fingerboard. Neck depth of .875 inches at the first fret and 1.05 inches at the twelfth fret.
An L.R. Baggs pickup system has been installed, so this LG-1 is stage-ready. Don’t miss your chance to snag this player-grade LG-1 before someone else does. Comes with a modern hardshell case, too.
