A 1940s Gibson "Banner" LG-2 in Sunburst finish.

We love all the small bodied Gibson acoustics from the 40s and 50s, but the ones from the Banner Era (1942-1945) are the most sought after.  This one shows considerable play wear around the soundhole and pickguard, but is in overall Good vintage condition.  Sounds great and it's been set up in-house to play its very best.  If you've been wanting a "Banner" this could be the one.
