This is one of the nicest examples of an early 50's Gibson LG-2 I've come across. The LG series were based on the shape of classical guitars, the smaller body size makes them an excellent choice for players who want a comfortable guitar that excels at finger picking. There were a couple variations in the lineup- the LG-0 is all mahogany with ladder bracing, the LG-1 is spruce top with ladder bracing, the LG-2 is spruce top with X bracing and the LG-3 is the same as the LG-2 but with a natural finish instead of the sunburst. The LG-2 is considered a bit more collectable than its lower end siblings because the X bracing provides a tone that is more familiar to modern players. It has a bit more sustain which makes it more versatile overall.

The early 50's was a sweet spot for Gibson acoustics. Quality of construction and woods used post war was great.  It has a comfortable full neck with a 1 11/16" nut. Earlier models had big baseball bat necks, later 60's models had skinnier 1 5/8" necks. It also features the desirable smaller pickguard which was replaced in 1955 with a larger pickguard that covers the area below the fingerboard. It still has the Brazilian rosewood bridge with drop in saddle which in later models was replaced with the inferior adjustable saddle.

Condition is excellent, it only has the typical crack along the inside edge from the shrinking celluloid. Finish is all original. It has had a clean neck reset and refret at some point in its life with slightly larger frets so the playability is excellent. Comes with a newer black hard shell case. There is a very nice sounding passive pickup installed, can be easily removed if desired. Nice original examples of this model are becoming harder to come by, you can't go wrong with this one.
