1951 Gibson LG3 Guitar
(Serial Number: 7038 17) Excellent condition. The LG3 is the natural top version of the LG2. Mahogany back and sides and a X-braced spruce top, the small tortoise pattern pickguard, tapered headstock, small rectangle bridge, single bound top and single bound back, and the gold Gibson decal peghead logo. The Kluson tuners are reissues but they use the exact same mounting holes as the originals. I think the top may have been lightly oversprayed in the distant past as the finish checking is correct but it blacklights a little differently from a known original. The neck has been reset at some time in the past, as the action is very low and comfortable. The gloss on the back of the neck has been dulled with steel wool to give a better playing feel. Great sounding guitar with a sweet tone and good volume. No repairs noted. Completely solid and a great playing and sounding guitar. Comes with a soft shell case that fits well.
