Gibson / LG1 / 1969 / Sunburst / Guitar
When production of the LG2 ended in 1962, it was replaced by the B25, and as LG2's are highly desirable this is a much more affordable way of buying a similar guitar. It's a 00 size guitar with very desirable X bracing, making the guitar very resonant - very versatile, handling both fingerstyle and strumming very well, with plenty of bite when soloing. It has masses of vintage vibe, has a great feeling neck and is an absolute pleasure to play. This example is all original with a vivid cherry sunburst finish. It has two small repaired cracks just above the soundhole on the bass side, and on the bridge, a fair amount of playwear and lots of great looking lacquer checking. Playing this guitar makes you realise why people buy vintage guitars, you can't find this kind of character or feel in a new guitar, in fact it's a very difficult guitar to put down. It comes in a non original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
