Gibson / LG2 / 1952 / Sunburst / Guitar
This is a great example of a very hard to find model only made between 1942 and 1962. The LG2 is a 00 size guitar with very desirable X bracing, making the guitar extremely resonant - a surprisingly big sound for a small bodied guitar. It features a Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides which give the guitar a real warmth and depth. It has a great feeling neck - early 50's Gibson necks are amongst the most desirable - and is a real joy to play. This is a great looking example, with Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, and the very desirable pre '54 teardrop pickguard. It's in very good condition for a 62 year old guitar, with a fair amount of playwear, upgraded Grover machine heads, and two professionally repaired pickguard cracks - very common on these models. This is a great example of a vintage guitar, with the kind of feel and character no modern guitar could ever hope to get close to. It comes in it's original - although beaten up - crocodile 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.
