Gibson LG1 Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 1950

The Gibson LG1 was introduced during 1942 along with the LG-2 and LG-3 as entry level models – and with the US entry into WW2, but after about 100 of each were built, both the LG-1 and LG-3 were discontinued for the duration of the war. While the LG-2 was built throughout WW2, the LG-1  and LG-3 were not built from 1943 to 1945.  In 1958, the LG-0 was introduced.

The Godin Passion Custom comes from the Godin plants in southern Quebec, and is largely built from woods native to the area – except for the fingerboard. The body uses a Swamp Ash cap on a chambered Red Cedar body, and the bolt-on neck is Maple with an Indian Rosewood fingerboard. For hardware, very smooth Gotoh 510 tuners are at the head with a Godin-branded two-point trem on the body.

⚌Reduced‼ Heritage H150 Custom Classic Goldtop, 2003

The Heritage H150 is based on the classic Les Paul design, and built in the former Gibson plant in Parsons Street in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This tried and true design features a figured Maple cap on a Mahogany body, Mahogany for the neck and Indian Rosewood for the bound fingerboard. The dimensions and finishes also draw from the same source, and the tapered Heritage headstock is one of the few visual cues as to what these excellent guitars are.
