Vintage 1954 Gibson LG-1 w/ Chipboard Case!
This is an interesting find and one in exceptionally clean condition. I have inspected this guitar thoroughly and found the guitar to be in near perfect structural condition bordering on unbelievable. It looks like this instrument was taken recently to a top luthier who went through the guitar from top to bottom.
There are no cracks anywhere that I can find and no loose braces. Typical playing wear including some apparent leaning marks on back of neck. The frets looks good with minimal wear. The action is good with saddle remaining. The neck angle is perfect and the original bridge is tight to the body. The finish is all original as are the tuning machines. The back bracing is new but was done at a level exceeding the quality of the original. I mean this work was done by a top luthier of the very highest skill level. I would love to meet this guy just to shake his hand. Well that just about sums this one up. A great small-body Gibson from the 1950’s that plays and sounds great and in need of nothing.
