When Gibson introduced its LG series of acoustics in 1942, the company had the student musician in mind. After all, the Kalamazoo, Michigan, outfit had already solidified its standing as a manufacturer of fine archtops and flattops. The LG-1, LG-2, and LG-3 were designed as small-bodied guitars with the simplest appointments, and the line’s elegant accessibility served Gibson well—both in terms of brand exposure and sales. In fact, the company made so many of them before they were phased out in the ’60s that they’ve be-come fairly common on the collector market—at least compared to much fancier and scarcer models, like the J-185 and the J-200.
This 2013 reissue has the classic warm, punchy and bluesy tone that you'd expect from a small-bodied Gibson. It absolutely nails the dry and woody sound that fingerpickers, blues players and folksingers love, and it feels superb. It's in great condition for it's age, with only a few small dents on the back of the neck, and very little playwear and polishing swirls. It has a factory-installed Element VTC, for natural and loud plugged-in tone. Includes original hardshell case.
