The Gibson LG-2 was a small bodied flat top acoustic produced in the Gibson Kalamazoo factory from 1948. It was also available as a 3/4 size student model, the LG-2 3/4. It sold moderately, but nowhere near as well as the lower priced LG-0 and LG-1. The peak sales year was actually the first, 1948. A similar model, the LG-3 was basically the same, but with a natural, rather than sunburst finish.
|From the 1960 Gibson catalogue|
Popular for it's rich, deep mahogany finish and golden sunburst top... for it's mellow, resonant tone... for it's fine Gibson quality at a modest price
The LG-2 was replaced by the B25 in 1962.
