Small-bodied vintage Gibson flattop in very good conditions, some ding&dong but a normal war from over 65 yars hold, nice comfortable chunky-C profile neck with low action, very good frets rady to play. A strong sound !  Includes original case

Gibson introduced the LG-1 in April of 1943 as a kind of junior partner to the famous J-45, with the same solid spruce top and mahogany back, sides, and neck. It had full body binding, a simple one-stripe rosette, a straight rosewood bridge with pearl dot inlay a 14/19-fret rosewood fingerboard with dot inlay, a blackface headstock with a screened logo and three-on-a-plate nickel tuners, and a tortoise pickguard. Its smaller dimensions (14 1/8” lower bout, with a 24 ” scale) allowed Gibson to use straight-across ladder bracing on the top as well as the back, and to use a single piece mahogany back with no center seam. It was usually in a sunburst finish
