Gibson / LG2 3/4 / 1956 / Sunburst / Guitar
This is a great example of a very hard to find model only made between 1949 and 1962, the model famously played by Arlo Guthry. As a 3/4 size guitar is doesn't have a huge bass response, but this allows the guitar to excel around the mid and treble ranges, and it has enough bark to really punch out those bluesy solos. It has a slim 1 9/16" neck, which makes it an ideal guitar for someone with smaller hands. It's in good condition for a 56 year old guitar, with lots of visible playwear, dings and scratches - none of which go through the wood. It's in all original condition with two repaired back cracks. The guitar records very well, particularly when close miked, as there are no unwanted bass overtones. This would also make the ultimate travel guitar. It comes in it's 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.
