Body: Spruce top with mahogany back and sides

Neck: Mahogany neck with a 50’s rounded profile, 1 11/16” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 12” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Deluxe tuners, no electronics

Cosmetic Condition: This LG-1 will not quit! The entire guitar looks like its survived the zombie apocalypse. That is to say that this Gibson is tough as sh*t! The body is covered in dings, scratches, pick wear, plugged holes and checking lines. The neck has been nicely textured through decades of regular playing time. The headstock though smattered with edge wear, almost appears clean by comparison. Stay close to this ’52 if you want to make it through the night!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board.

Modifications/Repairs: The bridge has been reglued. The neck was previously reset. The fingerboard has been refretted. The endpin and bridge pin have been replaced. The pickguard has been reglued. There are two plugged hole along the face, near the pickguard, and one plugged hole along the treble side from a previously installed jack.
