Vintage 1946 Gibson LG-2 acoustic guitar
Posted on June 30 2020
This vintage 1946 Gibson LG-2 acoustic guitar with small body and gold script Gibson logo came through the shop a few years ago. I'm always a vintage Gibson guitar buyer but I especially love the acoustic guitars from the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Please contact me here to sell a vintage Gibson guitar.
The year was 1946 and Gibson guitar headstocks were now devoid of their "Only a Gibson is good enough" banner. The golden script logo was still in use for the next year or so. The guitars were structurally the exact same as the banner years; some might say even more skillfully built since all the skilled craftsmen had returned from the war.
This LG-2 is in excellent structural condition and will be solid for years to come. The 1 3/4" nut is full but comfortable to play. The original tuners are smooth and the replaced buttons look correct but won't crumble in your hands. All parts are original to the guitar except the tuner buttons and strings. Repairs include a bridge reglue, reglued pickguard and a center seam separation reglued with touch up. It's clear that this guitar has been well preserved and seen very little playing time. The original frets are near perfect and the neck set is spot on. The resulting guitar is a very fine instrument that is just as easily fingerpicked as it is strummed.
