Gibson Nathaniel Rateliff LG-2 Western Lefty


The LG-2 is a historic model from the Gibson catalogue, and this reissue feels insane!

A small body acoustic with the full-sized Gibson sound. 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 50s LG-2 Original maintains a full dynamic range while being comfortable under arm. 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.
