LG 1 - laminated or not?

It's Gibson, remember?


A lot of even "high-end" Gibsons of that era were laminated, so it would be par for the course if your LG-1 was too. Then agn, it might be they had solid around and built it with that.


You could always just crack off a little piece to check it, Geoff. :-

My 64 Gibson LG1 has a Solid Spruce top, Solid Mahogany back but laminated sides according to the Luthier I am having work on it. The side lamination was to make it structurally a bit stronger. I don't mind at all, it's all part of the tone of that ladder braced box that appeals to me.
