Gibson Lg 2 1941 Banner Vintage Acoustic Guitar For Sale

Gibson Lg 2  1941 Banner Vintage Acoustic Guitar

This is most likely a 1941 LG-2, thats based on the neck block having the four digit stamped ink serial of 3761, followed by the red ink number 31. The guitar has had extensive work done to it. Some of the work was done when I acquired it about 5 years ago, the rest I finished, I'm a professional luthier.
The guitar was stripped and refinished poorly. The neck I left, but I refinished the body and headstock. The body has a few thin coats of nitrocellulose lacquer, the top is buffed to gloss, the back and sides are not. The headstock has a repro decal, also covered in nitro. The guitar had several top cracks that someone had dug out and filled with some sort of black epoxy. I removed and cleaned those areas and put in the splints you can see in the pictures.Most of the interior is original, there is one replaced top brace (the first tone bar just behind the bridge plate), and a replaced bridge plate, period correct small maple bridge plate, I did all the internal work, and it's done right. New rosewood bridge with compensated saddle. Open geared Gotoh tuners. Bone nut. Bone bridge pins. Firestripe pickguard. Refret and re-truing of fingerboard. Guitar has low action, straight neck, and plays great.
Some of the good stuff is...Even though it's been refinished twice now, it hasn't bee over sanded, all the corners and lines are still clean, sharp, with good definition, no real loss of original shape. It has a one piece mahogany back which is kinda cool. It's structurally rock solid. No breaks on the neck.
It's an odd guitar now, a great 2nd guitar, back-up guitar, wouldn't exactly call it a beater but a guitar you certainly don't have to be too careful with.
Will ship in a used gig bag.
Please feel free to ask any questions.

I wanted to add a bit more info so there are no surprises. I've added a couple more pics to show some of the finish work. There are several repaired cracks, the lacquer on the headstock has finish checking, the pickguard is peeling up in a few spots, the finish covering a couple of the splints has cracked a bit as well. Again, it's an absolutely solid guitar, just want to be clear about the finish and overall appearence, to be totally honest I think the pictures make it look a little better than it actually is. Please feel free to ask any additional questions.
