Gibson / LG2 / 1947 / Sunburst / Guitar
The LG2 was made from 1942 – 1962, possibly the most desirable small bodied post war Gibson model available. It’s a 00 size guitar with very desirable X bracing, making the guitar extremely resonant – a surprisingly big sound for a small bodied guitar. It’s quite rare to find such an early example, with the desirable tapered headstock, and the most obvious difference to the later LG2’s is the neck – it’s fuller feeling – meaning it carries richer tone and greater sustain than more easy to find later 50’s equivalents. With just one repaired top crack, the guitar is in fantastic playing condition, and the tobacco burst is simply stunning. Tonally it’s one of those guitars that just makes you want to play and play, reminiscent of so many old blues recordings. The guitar has a K and K Pure pickup fitted, and even comes in it’s original croc 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.
