Comments Here’s a very cool Gibson LG-2 from the 1950′s. The LG-2 featured a X-braced spruce top with mahogany back and sides and a sunburst finish; the LG-3 was the same guitar with a natural-finish top. The LG series were introduced in 1942 but only the LG-2 was made continuously through WW2.In 1955, the JG-2 got a larger pickguard and went to 20 frets; this has the smaller pickuard and 19 frets so it was made before 1955.This instrument is in good playing condition, and had some alterations and repairs over the years. A trapeze tailpiece was installed and later removed; the holes were filled and some over-spray refinishing was done. There are six unrepaired but stable cracks on the back.

The LG-2 delivers that characteristic warm Gibson sound, and it’s a very comfortable guitar to play and listen to.
