OVERVIEW

A little sweetheart with a giant tone.

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.

Handcrafted solid tonewood and scalloped top bracing provide the warmth and richness that have made spruce and mahogany a classic combination in acoustic flat-top guitars, while the short scale and roomy yet 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. Equipped with a Baggs Element pickup, the LG-2 is ready to accompany you at the coffee shop or in the concert hall. Includes case.

  • Solid mahogany for a warm-balanced tone

Comments about Gibson LG-2 American Eagle Acoustic Electric Guitar:

I've been playing for about 20 years in praise and worship bands but haven't owned a lot of guitars. I've had the heart for a couple of years now to start taking fingerstyle seriously. For the past year or so I started looking for the "perfect guitar." I actually decided to get a Taylor 412 until I happened upon this little gem and loved it. I found a great deal here at Musicians Friends with an open box, (It was flawless when it came in. I don't think it was even played.) so I ordered one and have been very happy with it. It has a great deep tone with a bluesy feel. Amazing tone with every note from highs to low very articulate. I was also surprised to find that it's not a bad guitar for strumming either with some pretty decent volume. Very comfortable neck with great playability.

My only complaint is when I plugged it into my Fender acoustic amp it was very punchy causing me to bring the lows way down on the amp. After a quick adjustment it sounds great plugged in as well.
