Generally, I like clean examples of beautiful vintage guitars with no elongated trail of tears. But occasionally I run into something that I deem worthy of restoration, and this one turns out to have been a totally worthy project. Maybe not from a financial standpoint, but there’s great merit in giving life back to a wonderful thing. When I got it, there were a couple of broken braces that have been replaced in the top, it needed a neck reset, a refret, had a long ago addressed center seam separation, one obvious tight long ago repaired crack on the back, and conspicuous lacquer crazing as often noted from this era. Replaced tuners, originals included. But it all paid off, as this is one of the best playing, best sounding LG2s that we have encountered. Although it’s difficult to discern Adirondack on a Sunburst guitar, the sound makes it pretty clear that this is indeed red spruce. Comes in a modern HSC. It has a bigger rounder neck more reminiscent of the wartime period than the subsequent slimmer ‘47 necks. With the Adirondack top and the bigger neck it is very much a transitional model, and a fabulous guitar. Don’t hesitate to give a ring if you would like a hands on discussion. 801 450 7698
