1944 Gibson Lg-2 "Banner Logo" Guitar. This was a war time guitar, and as there was a severe steel shortage, this was one of a few guitars produced without a truss rod. To compensate, Gibson made very large necks on guitars produced without truss rods.
This neck measures 1.05" at the 1st fret and 1.12" at 12th fret. Nut width is just shy of 1- 3/4" at 1.725". If you like big necks, this guitar is for you. Action is remarkably low, at 5/64" at low E and 4/64" at high E. Bridge and saddle have been shaved in the past.
The guitar has not had a neck reset and does not need one now. The neck is absolutely straight with no bow whatsoever.There are several significant cracks in the top which have been repaired. Some loose braces have been re-glued, which is quite common on these guitars. Neck, back and sides are all sound. All finish is original. Tuner buttons are original and it is rare for these early ones to still be intact. They can easily be replaced if they crumble at some point in the future.
The guitar sounds amazing. It is bright and loud, extremely resonant. This guitar is a great example of why Gibson "Banner" X braced guitars are so prized!
