Here we have a 1951 Gibson LG-2 that looks and sounds fantastic. There have been a number of repairs made to this guitar which are noted below under Mods. This instrument sat in its case unplayed for several years in an environment that had low humidity which caused some cracking of the top and bottom as well as some loosening of the internal bracing. We sent the guitar to our friends at the esteemed Portland Fretworks and they took care of everything that needed to be done. This guitar is now solid as it can be and sounding just as it should. The repairs made the guitar completely stable and preserved its wonderful vintage voice.
Original Nickel 3-on-a-plate Kluson tuners with replaced buttons. Comfortable 1 11/16 inch nut. Mahogany neck with a 24.875 inch scale length and a depth of .85 inches at the first fret and 1.05 inches at the twelfth fret. Rosewood fingerboard with 19 frets and a 12 inch radius.
