1943 Gibson Banner LG2 Guitar
(FON 2798-38) Excellent condition all original wartime example of Gibson's most popular small body flat-top guitar model. This guitar was made in 1943 dating by the features. Has the original sunburst top finish and dark back and sides. Mahogany back and sides and a x-braced mahogany top, tapered headstock, small rectangular bridge, single bound top and single bound back, and the gold Gibson script peghead with the "Only a Gibson is Good Enough" banner. 1-3/4 inch nut with a chunky rounded profile, not the usual "half baseball bat" profile of most Banners. Very playable neck. The open back strip Kluson tuners are original. Great sounding guitar with a nice low action, as the neck was just reset, the bridge reglued and a beautifully done undetectable refret by luthier John Hamlett in Charlottesville. It has the usual playing wear but no major structural repairs. Completely solid and a great playing and sounding guitar. Comes with a newer hardshell case.
