1959 Gibson LG-0 Flattop Guitar



What are the chances of two '59 LG-0s popping in the shop within a week? This one is a customer's instrument and was in for while-you-wait repair including a fret level/dress, crack cleating, and general setup. It's a good, husky-sounding ladder-braced thumper and has a nice 50s-style Gibson neck with 1 11/16" nut and slightly rounder/bigger C-profile.



Someone replaced the original tuners with some big old gold-plated Grover units -- probably in the 80s.




The bridge had already been "string-ramped" when it came in. I like the mismatched pins -- perfect on an all-hog "beater."
