1953 Gibson LG 1

1953 Gibson LG-1  

What a beautuful instrument this is!  Almost box fresh with a sublime and dark sunburst finish.  All original excluding a set of 60's double line Kluson tuners in the original holes.  One wouldn't know they were replaced is one wasn't familiar with the nomenclature of Kluson tuners.  But most importantly, it's the best sounding LG-1 that I've had.  Deep and rich with lots of sustain and that fat sound Gibson is so known for.  One could close one's eyes and not know it was a LG-!.  Brilliant.  Crack free as well.  1953.......67 years old.   Like me.
