1946 Gibson LG-2 Script Logo

1946 Gibson Script Logo LG-2 (sold)

Sweet and rare example of the post-war Script Logo LG-2.   The Script Logo was only used for about 1 1/2 years after the war's end, at which point Gibson designed and up in place the block logo that we still see today.  So the Script Logo Gibson is quite a rare guitar in any model.  This particular example is in lovely all original condition with very little playwear and a clear, bright original finish.  The burst is ruddy and rich with deep reds and yellows and the clear coat has craqueleur in just the right amount.  Solid mahogany rims and back with a sitka spruce top, mahogany neck and spruce X bracing. 

The voice is wonderfully warm and textural with an even tenor across the strings and a woody tone overall.  The LG-2 is basically a mini-J 45 and they always have the same characteristics tonally yet possess a smaller more tactile size which give them a slightly more boxy vibe.....super for recording or gigging.   Or.....just sitting on the sofa with madame whiling away the hours.
