Gibson / LG2 Banner Sunburst / 1944 / Guitar For Sale

The LG2 was part of the same series as the LG1 and LG3, but this was the only model whose production continued during WWII. Due to stock shortages, it often happened in those years that Gibson used mahogany for the top instead of spruce. That is also the case with this 'hogtop' from 1944. It is popular for its scalloped X-braced top and very collectible with the Banner logo on the headstock. In addition to the Banner logo, the FON number '2937' on the heel block refers to the year 1944. Thanks to the all-mahogany construction, the sound stands out with that little bit of extra punch. And certainly don't underestimate the power of this guitar. It seems small and compact, but produces a surprisingly loud sound. Strike a few chords and it will almost blow you away! With a softer touch, the clarity of the treble is particularly noticeable. It's almost unbelievable to realize that this Gibson has been with us for 80 years, because the guitar really looks fantastic! The guitar has undergone an overspray at some point in its history, traces of which can also be seen through the sound hole in the body. Over the years, the lacquer has then collected a beautiful subtle weather checking pattern that contributes to the guitar's vintage appearance. Furthermore, the guitar has undergone a neck reset and a refret, and the bridge has also been made lower. A pickup was also installed in the guitar at some point, but it is no longer present. The guitar is still adorned with the original pickguard and tuners, and is a real pleasure to play! Played by Tom Punt. Gear: Ear Trumpet Labs Evelyn Stereo Microphone

ABOUT US

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail info@thefellowshipofacoustics.com My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
