This Gibson LG-2 from the 40’s is as sweet sounding as they come! An intimate, harmonically rich acoustic guitar, with a ton of vibe and a great “opened-up” tone as well as excellent playability.
A very rare piece from the Banner periode with maple back and sides.
It has a nice solid Adirondack spruce tope and maple back and sides, with a nicely aged warm sunburst finish, a mahogany neck topped with a rosewood fingerboard, a rosewood bridge. It has the original Kluson tuners too.
This guitar in is good shape for it’s age – it does have normal finish checking and some finish wear from play and use. Some small cracks have been repired. The repair is good and everything is very solid. The back of the neck has been refinished at some poit of its life. The rest of the finish is original.
The guitar boasts excellent play-ability with good angles. Notes just jump off the fingerboard of this one – is a great example of an early Banner Gibson!
