Who would modify a 1957 Gibson LG-1

Recommended Posts

A few years ago, I bought a 57 LG-1. Two reasons, A: even though it has straight bracing, it sounds and feels amazing. B: up here in the Great White North(Winnipeg) you rarely see these kinds of things. I have two questions, does anyone know where to finds actual period piece tuners for this puppy? And is there a hardshell case for these. 
Thanks

Vintage tuners can be a crap shoot. If you choose a modern key that requires no modifications to the guitar, you’ll be better off. Check Stewart McDonald.

I agree, vintage repros would be way better.  We changed them old ones because they SUCKed.

Waverly's do not suck.

Damn rct did not comment on a case. Your slipping rct. I'm sure in 2020 you can find a case online to fit it.

I don't know enough about Ack!oustic cases.  Whichever kind holds stickers good.

There usually thicker than electric one's.

Some times I put a few dots of crazy glue on the back of the sticker to make sure it stays put.

What, you got a M-36. I know an axe that expensive came with one.

Yes, a very fancy case, Canadian, and I can't think of the name.  My EJRW came in a G&G, a serious strat case.  Doesn't hold stickers forshit though.

I’m pretty sure a classical case would do it, question is do I overpay your have a Gibson stencil on it? Iol

 I traded my D-35 for my 41 but I kept my 35 case cuz it had all my stickers on it. It's one of those thermoplastic ones. I think it was going to come with one of those nice Gieb ones and I don't like those. The store owner took an extra 100 if the price.

I know I just don't like those plywood huge cases. My guitars are usually in stands most of the time. Cases are for transport.

No not at all, it's a really nice case.

She's YOUNG she's WILD she wants to be FREEEEE...

An LG-1?  Oh hell no.  I don't even know what they are, small body Gibson acoustic is all I know of it.  I uh, I haven't owned a Gibson since they gurgled into bankruptcy, got rid of them.  I never found a Gibson acoustic I liked that much, always a Martin preferrerer.  But Les Pauls and stuff, yes, used them all my life.

I like HBirds and Doves but one super expensive guitar is enough.

Rct, maple syrup is made in Quebec , mostly. Crown Royal in Gimli about an hour from my house. Problem is a really not a rye whiskey fan. They even make 7, a mix between rye and bourbon. Funny thing not available for the Canadian market.

Rct give me a 1977 Les Paul with 3 pickups, believe it was 20th anniversary for the guitar. It weighed like 15 pounds lol. Not sure might have been lined with lead.

That's right the Canucks call it rye. The Apple and Salted Carmel flavored ones are for chicks who shouldn't be drinking if you can't handle the taste.
