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.

1960 Gibson catalogueFrom 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.
