Gibson LG3 Steel String Guitar Natural, 1949

Gibson LG3 Steel String Guitar Natural, 1949

The Gibson LG3 was built from late 1942 to 1963 as an entry level model, but its production was suspended months after its launch due to WW2.  It was introduced with the LG1 and LG2, but from 1943 to 1945, only the sunburst LG2 stayed in production.  All three models were similar in appearance, but the LG1 and LG2 were ladder braced while the LG3 had what’s now the standard X bracing. In 1963, the LG3 was replaced by the B25-N (for Natural Finish Top).

Martin 0018 Steel String Guitar Natural, 1950

Martin 0018 Steel String Guitar Natural, 1950

Here is a lovely Martin 0018 steel string guitar built during April of 1950, very glossy and having had a neck reset for great playability! As an ’18’ style model, the Martin 0018 construction features a Spruce top (Sitka since the early 1940’s) and Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks and neck. The bridge, fingerboard and head plate are Rosewood – and as this guitar was built before 1967, that means Brazilian Rosewood.
