Gibson Custom Shop LG-2 American Eagle Sitka and Mahogany Pre-Owned 2014 ID-11177
Gibson Custom Shop LG-2
This little giant produces a charming and seductive tone that rivals much larger-bodied guitars while maintaining exceptional clarity and focus in individual notes. Ideal for folk, blues and finger style, the delicately balanced LG-2 maintains a full-dynamic range in a compact package. Handcrafted solid tone wood and scalloped top bracing provide the warmth and richness that have made spruce and mahogany a classic combination in acoustic flat-top guitars, while the short scale and roomy yet comfortable nut width make for easy playing no matter what the style.
Quality Gibson construction, a dovetail neck-to-body joint, and simple appointments remain true to the intent of the original, while subtle changes in playing feel provide the modern player with the best of both worlds. Equipped with a Baggs Element pickup, the LG-2 is ready to accompany you at the coffee shop or in the concert hall.
The LG-2 excels in its most natural and obvious settings..country-blues fingerpicking and Travis picking but its balanced, pianistic qualities also make it a great fit for styles you might not associate with steel-string like arrangements of piano pieces by Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.
In these classical settings, the note separation and tonal balance essential qualities for harmonically and melodically complex pieces are superb, and they’re further highlighted by the guitar’s dynamic, detailed responsiveness.
This LG-2 is equipped with an L.R. Baggs Element pickup. The system is more inconspicuous than most: It has a 1/4" endpin jack and a single volume knob tucked discreetly inside the soundhole. The pickup is sonically unobtrusive, as well. Plugged into a Fender Acoustasonic amp or a DAW, the guitar sounds full and organic and has little of the noise and artificiality that tends to plague many undersaddle pickups. The bass sounds ample with-out being tubby, and the trebles clear and present.
This instrument is in Excellent + Condition with only 1 very small surface scratch on the top. This guitar has been very well looked after and taken care of.
Inlcudes Hardshell Case.
