This Gibson LG1 is in very good condition.This guitar was one of the very first LG1s to switch from a wooden bridge to a plastic bridge. Everything is original except the bridge pins. The bridge is lifting some and the bridge plate is a bit chewed. It is bolted down from the factory. The guitar sounds great and has a classic, vintage tone expected from a late 50s Gibson. There are nicks and dings on the body and very minimal fretwear. Includes a non-original hard shell case. Send us a message if you are interested in this vintage Gibson guitar!
