A Traditional Sweetheart with a Giant ToneLG-2 Americana
Originally built for Patty Griffin, this little giant produces a charming and seductive tone that rivals much larger-bodied guitars while maintaining exceptional clarity and focus in individual notes. Ideal for folk, blues and finger style, the delicately balanced LG-2 maintains a full-dynamic range in a compact package.
The handcrafted red spruce top, hand-scalloped top bracing secured with hide glue provide additional warmth and richness to an already famous classic tonewood combination. The short scale and comfortable nut width make for easy playing no matter what the style. Quality Gibson construction, a dovetail neck-to-body joint, and simple appointments remain true to the intent of the original, while subtle changes in playing feel provide the modern player with the best of both worlds.
Finished with Gibson's classic vintage burst and hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer, this sweetheart of a guitar packs tonal punch and standout stage appeal. Equipped with a Baggs Element pickup, the LG-2 Americana is ready to perform at the coffee shop or in the concert hall.
Handcrafted by the acclaimed luthiers of Gibson's acoustic facility in Bozeman, Montana, production is limited in 2013.
Each guitar includes a signed Certificate of Authenticity and anniversary label, Gibson hardshell case, an owner's manual and Gibson Gold Warranty.
