Gibson LG-0 Acoustic Flat Top (1958 - 1974)
In late 1958 Gibson introduced the Gibson LG-0, this guitar was a very popular guitar amongst students.. It was an overall great sounding guitar and out performed most guitars in its price range (listed at $85 in 1960).
Price was low and affordable, the small neck made it comfortable to play, the action was just right and the tone was full with a deep quality bass sound found on more expensive guitars.
In 1960 the LG-0 guitar was listed in Gibson's catalog as a top seller, early models (1958 to 1961) were superior in sound and quality because they were fitted with a brazilian rectangular rosewood bridges which worked well tonally with mahogany tops.
In 1958 to 1961 the LG-0 had a straight rectangular rosewood bridge, mahogany top/body, round sound hole, black screwed on teardrop pick guard, rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, 24 3/4 scale, black peg head w/screened logo and were made in natural mahogany finishes.
In 1962 these guitars were selling so well that Gibson was concerned with warranty repairs, Gibson replaced the rectangular rosewood bridge with a plastic bridge screwed on by 4 bolts from the inside of the guitar, the plastic bridge was cheaper to produce and repair. In 1968 Gibson replaced the plastic bridge with a rosewood bridge and an adjustable saddle. The LG-0 model was discontinued in 1974.
