The Gibson ’50s LG-2 delivers big sound in a comfortable performance package. The output of this “little giant” is akin to that of a J-45. Yet this mighty mini has the detail and intimacy you only get from a small-bodied guitar. The ’50s LG-2’s scalloped-braced Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides produce a rich, mellow sound with a snappy response. Acoustically, it delivers big dynamics and character. And plugged in, an onboard LR Baggs VTC pickup system lets you take that premier Gibson tone to the stage. If you’re a folk guitarist or fingerstylist who’s after a comfortable player for the stage and studio, the ’50s LG-2 comes primed to please.
Small-bodied comfort and clarity
The compact dimensions of the Gibson ’50s LG-2 have made it a favorite around Sweetwater for folk, blues, slide, and fingerstyle players. Its narrow waist seems to throw each note forward with added articulation. Whether you’re strumming along to your own voice or digging in with a pick, you’ll appreciate the ’50s LG-2’s ability to translate every nuance of your playing without covering it up in a booming low end.
Rich sound, even onstage
The ’50s LG-2 comes equipped with LR Baggs’s VTC acoustic pickup system, a popular choice among Sweetwater’s acoustic guitarists. This system features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that enhances the coupling between the pickup and the guitar for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control mounted just inside the soundhole, the VTC gives your Gibson ’50s LG-2 the amplification you need, with zero compromises for tone or convenience.
