1966 Gibson LG-1 Flattop Guitar

The owner of this guitar is a Gibson fiend and this '66 LG-1 of his is a sweetheart, with a voice a bit warmer and mellower than average. It's got the narrow 1 9/16" nut width and slim/quick neck profile, though, so it's not a guitar for everyone. I like the narrow necks, though, because I play a lot of sliding, closed chords on guitar these days when singing and the feel of one of these is a perfect match for it.

It's in good shape overall and all-original save a replacement bridge (which the owner supplied), saddle, and bridge pins. When it was quite young the original pickguard must have been taken off as the finish has not UVed appreciably differently from the rest of the finish in the area where the guard used to be on it. 

After work it plays spot-on, has decent saddle height, and is ready to go for the future.

Condition notes: the bridge is unoriginal (but an improvement) and the pickguard is missing. It's crack-free and while the finish has the usual amount of weather-checking, it looks great.
