Gibson / LG1 / 1959 / Sunburst / Guitar

This 1959 Gibson LG1 is an absolute beauty - it's difficult not to talk about the look of this guitar before mentioning the sound, It has that wonderful tobacco sunburst that Gibson did so well in the 50's, with really stunning looking lacquer checking - very eye catching. The guitar's in good condition, with plenty of playwear so you know it been played enough for the tone to mature over the last 55 years, but clean enough to tell you it's been well looked after. The guitar has a repaired top crack, plus several repaired back cracks. Tonally, it has a rich sound, lending itself to bluesy fingerpicking, although it's very versatile, handling strumming very well, and has plenty of bite when soloing. The neck feels great, and the action is comfortable. The guitar has an LR Baggs under saddle pickup installed, with a volume control mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in a non original hard case.

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.
