Gibson Lg-3 (lg-3) For Sale

Gibson Lg-3 (lg-3)

Gibson LG-3, Late 40s or Early 50s
I don't know much about this guitar's history. I bought it used 5 years ago, and it has been my main guitar until recently, when I purchased a custom-built instrument. This little Gibson has a really nice tone for old-time fiddle back-up and for old blues. If you're interested, I can record an mp3 file with my Zoom and send it to you.

Now, about the guitar. I am not an expert on old Gibsons or any vintage guitars, but here goes. It is X-braced. No indication of the year, but pre- '55 (19 frets). I believe that most early 50s LG-2, -3s had a serial number on the neck block, but not this one (see photo), which makes me think it may be from 1950 or earlier. The headstock (and maybe the rest of the guitar) was refinished at some point, as you can see in the photos (the back of the headstock is black). The “Gibson” decal is probably not original. There's are markings on the front of the headstock that make me think that some other type of tuners were mounted at one time (I tried to capture these in photo). The nut is a replacement. The bridge and saddle (which is low) are probably original. There is a very small, odd imperfection in the upper bout (see photo). There is one short (~1”) crack running from the soundhole to the fingerboard—it's not cleated and doesn't need to be, since it stops at a brace. I tried to capture it in the one photos, but you really can't see it. The back of the guitar is one-piece mahogany. From the photo, you might think there is a crack, but there's not--that's just a rough spot in the grain. The back and sides are crack-free. The fingerboard shows wear around the lower frets.There is some crazing and plenty of small dings, but overall the guitar really looks nice.

The neck width at the nut is 1 & 11/16th inches.You can get an idea of the string height at the 12th fret from the one photo. I find the action comfortable enough. The neck is stable (hasn't moved in the 5 years I've owned it), but there is no room to lower the saddle.

Comes with a cheapie padded soft-shell guitar case.

If you are not familiar with what one of these small-bodied Gibsons sound like, I suggest you look around on the net (maybe YouTube) and check out the sound. Also, as I mentioned before, I can try to record an mp3 and send it to you if you're genuinely interested.

Shipping to lower-48 only, UPS $35.
