Up for sale, a sweet Gibson LG-2 from 1946. These 40s Gibsons are known for their sound and this one doesn’t disappoint. It has that quintessential 40s Gibson tone. It holds its own against any of the Banner LG-2s that have come through the shop.
Someone loved this guitar and it was obviously played a lot over its 70+ years of life. That’s a sign of a really good guitar. The headstock has the same Gibson Script Logo as the Banner models made during the war years, just without the “Only a Gibson is Good Enough” banner. Same guitar, but the lack of that decal will save you some money.
The tuners have been replaced with vintage-style Klusons. A newer bone nut has been added. It had a refret awhile back and the original bridge and saddle were shaved down at some point to improve the action. Plays fine now. Some glued top cracks.
This little Gibby is structurally sound and not in need of any additional repairs at this time. Comes with a modern hardshell case.
