Comments Here is a lovely 1960 Gibson LG-1 Sunburst with an L.R. Baggs pickup installed.

The LG-1 was introduced in 1942, along with the LG-2 and LG-3. However, the demands of World War 2 almost immediately stopped the production of the LG-1 and LG-3, and they were re-introduced in 1945. In its first release, the LG-1 had a brown top finish, but received a sunburst finish after the war. Production ended in 1974.

This example is in great playing condition, with lots of natural lacquer checking. Great sound, great looks, and fun to play!
