Gibson 1950 LG-1
This is a 1950 Gibson LG-1, one of the less expensive models of Gibson's vintage production, but still incredible guitars that capitalized on a nation that was increasingly listening to Western music as a whole, with acoustic pop being the most listened to genre at the end of the 1960's. A lively and enjoyable guitar to play, the neck is extremely comfortable and performs well on every part of the fretboard. It has been professionally set up and is ready to be played upon arrival.
The neck is reasonably chunky and comfortable and made of mahogany with cream side dots. The fingerboard is Brazilian rosewood, still common at the time, and has mother of pearl dot inlays. The frets are in great condition without any wear. The Kluson Deluxe 3-in-line tuners work well. The nut width is 1 3/4" and the scale length is 24 3/4".
The guitar's body has a double-bound design and features a sunburst finish on the solid spruce top. The rosewood bridge has mother of pearl dot inlays and a through-saddle, and there is a tortoise pickguard and a 3-ply rosette. The back and sides are made of solid vintage mahogany.
In terms of appearance, considering its age of 60 years, the guitar is in good shape with minor signs of use. It has some small nicks, chips, dents, and scratches, but overall it looks clean and shiny.
Serial #5202_3 comes with a vintage chipboard case, possibly original.
