GIBSON | Nathaniel Rateliff SIGNATURE

Based on the Night Sweats Frontman's Own Vintage LG-2

Known for his energetic and appropriately sweaty live performances, Nathaniel Rateliff has emerged as a modern master of the genre mashup, blending country and folk with soul, R&B, and more to create a heady, party-ready sound that’s impossible to ignore. His new Gibson Montana Signature LG-2 takes a cue from its namesake, combining features on the LG-2 and Country Western to create a custom acoustic perfect for the stage or the studio.
