Gibson LG-0 LG-O
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2012-04-17)
Price : US $ 749
This is a great example of a Gibson LG0, and really looks and feels the part. As a small bodied, all Mahogany acoustic, it has a really rich tone which lends itself to bluesy fingerpicking - the 45 year old Mahogany giving the guitar warmth and depth. However, it's quite versatile, and works equally well for soloing and light strumming.
The guitar is in very good condition, all original, few scratches and dings here and there, nothing serious. Bottom of sound hole has some pickwear. Top has 2 long finish cracks that do not go through the wood and are hard to see. Heel of guitar seems to ave a little separation from body as pictured, but is solidly connected.
It feels very comfortable to play. These guitars have a very thin neck which is probably good for youngster or small handed player. Playing action is great with low E at 6.5/64" @12th fret, and with an adjustable saddle it's easy to raise or lower the action as desired. Contrary to what is said about Gibson adjustible saddles extra hardware absorbing sound, this guitar plays very loud which may be due to a TUSQ saddle in place, the original rosewood is available and will be provided.
The guitar comes in a non original but correct period, beat up, hard case. Shipping will be carefuly done using the Gruhn method as specified at http://www.gruhn.com/features/packing/ Cost to be calculated for your zip code and using Fedex Home Delivery insured, probably around $40.
