This particular LG-2 is a shockingly great sounding example for any Gibson era, but more notably, the Banner/war years. The guitar has been archived on Banner Gibson registry (although possibly misnumbered).
Two-piece Adirondack red spruce top, mahogany back and sides
Heavily stripe-grained bridge w/ pearl dots
Ultra rare firestripe pickguard
Uncharacteristic and additional BWB purfling and top binding
It's had all of its work (perfect neckset, tons of ivory saddle left, arrow straight neck, vintage-correct frets and perfect nut) by the extraordinary Dennis Berck of Eugene, OR.
Guitar set-up, playability, etc. needs nothing. Ready to go out the box!
String spacing at bridge is 2 1/8". Nut size is 1 3/4" and neck has no "V" to it. A C-carve; big and rounded, not clubby whatsoever. I thought my '46 SJ had a phenomenal neck, but this one is hands-down my personal favorite, period.
Plenty of name-dropping references to share on this one. According to the previous owner, both Dennis Berck and Wayne Henderson have claimed it's the best they've heard!
This is a great investment piece, and you will not find or hear a better one.
