Another question.


Interesse

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

I know I keep coming up with question about models and year...I am a bit new to the world of Gibson Acoustic and I really like their sound and hope to acquire one soon.

So to follow this I really like the sound of the one in the following videos.

Can anybody tell me what model is it? Is it a vintage or a new one? If it's a vintage what's the contemporary model?

should I look at a specific site to try to find it? I suppose if it is a vintage it will be rather expensive...hence my question about a new model still in production. Well what do you guys recommend?

Thank you ever so much for you taking the time to answer to all my novice questions and looking forward to reading all your advice.

Cheerio

It looks to me like an LG-1 built before the mid-50s - OR a reissue, because didn't Gibson produce some ladder-braced LG-1s for the international market?

 

Nice enough guitars, and the high school friend who started me as a guitar player had a c.1952 example that I can still hear in my head.

As a comparison would you say that the contemporary model is the Blues King?
