Gibson 1966 LG-1 Sunburst
The Gibson LG-1, the ladder braced, inexpensive models from the 40's through the 60's, are having a heyday as of late, due to their incredible playability and great, old-timey sound reminiscent of the 1950's and 60's, bringing players back to the world of artists like Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger, among others.
This 1966 model, made right in the heart of the folk revolution, is a great way to get into vintage Gibson guitars at the right price. With its spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and drop-in saddle bridge, this guitar has a warm, if subtly dry character, and is easy to play due to its 1 9/16 nut and small C-shaped neck profile, along with a 24 11/16 scale length.
The Brazilian rosewood fretboard are gorgeous and has the original frets. There is a good amount of gorgeous checking on the whole guitar, fairly evenly, and the pickguard has some interesting striations that give the guitar a great vintage vibe to match the redder sunburst color. The bridge has been shaved down to accommodate the neck angle and a new saddle has been made. There has also been a repaired center seam split. Serial #805156 comes with a non-original hardshell case.
