A little dog with a big bite, this well-traveled guitar was originally purchased in Oregon in 1960 and subsequently led an inveterate existence, moving around the country with its one and only owner, from whom we recently purchased it. Upon taking in this guitar, we thoroughly cleaned it (hey, 50 years on the road is bound to lead to some grimy build up!), reglued the bridge, dressed the frets, and gently removed evidence of a small area of old overspray from the back of the neck. We then installed a new set of light gauge strings. Like a faithful Spaniel after a long-overdue bath, the guitar responded gratefully, producing a clear and ringing tone that is exceptionally responsive to a player’s touch. And now it’s ready for you to adopt it for your very own. This guitar’s flinty tone acquits itself particularly well on ragtime, fingerstyle blues, and understated singer-songwriter stylings (John Hiatt, for example, loves these diminutive LG models). Spruce top and mahogany back and sides. One piece mahogany neck. Ladder bracing. Shipped in a non-original chipboard case, which is decorated with a very hip Bald Eagle tableau in honor of the 1976 Bicentennial. (Hey, you’ll never confuse your case with someone else’s again!) SOLD!
