North American Exclusive - Small-bodied Guitar with Big Sound

Originally designed for Patty Griffin, the Gibson Acoustic LG-2 Americana is a small-bodied guitar with big tone. The LG-2 has the projection of a J-45 and the detail that small-bodied guitars provide. This guitar's Adirondack red spruce top and mahogany back and sides produce a rich, mellow sound with the snappiness you want for finger-picking. Don't be misled by its diminutive size. The LG-2 Americana delivers big on dynamics and character, while a Baggs Element pickup lets you take that premium tone to the stage. Pick up Gibson Acoustic's LG-2 Americana and be delighted.

Gibson Acoustic LG-2 Americana Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Mahogany bodied acoustics are where it's at for recording
  • LR Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System
  • Classic Gibson craftsmanship
Mahogany bodied acoustics are where it's at for recording

When it comes to recording flat-picked acoustic guitars, professional recording engineers prefer instruments with a mahogany back and sides, rather than rosewood. If that surprises you, understand that it has to do with the preponderance of low end inherent in rosewood-bodied guitars (that must dealt with) versus the perfection with which a properly-recorded mahogany-bodied acoustic sits within a track. The Gibson Acoustic LG-2 Americana has great projection and it's superbly balanced. It's a great choice for tracking in a thick mix, yet it sounds rich and full-bodied on its own. Just aim a small-diaphragm condenser mic at the 12th fret and you're good-to-go. Record the Baggs Element pickup output to another track and you've got beaucoup mix options.

LR Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System

The GIbson Acoustic LG-2 Americana comes with LR Baggs's popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System, which features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control, mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element is a tremendous performer. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. The Element works with a standard 9V battery, which is housed inside the guitar in L.R. Bagg's new "Battery Bagg."

Classic Gibson craftsmanship

Gibson's reputation as a fine guitar builder dates back to the late 1800s. Handcrafted since day one by some of the most skilled luthiers around, Gibson acoustic guitars have inspired countless players around the world. When you pick up a Gibson acoustic, you know you're getting the finest tonewoods, quality hardware, and incredible attention to detail. These instruments are built to sound great and stand the test of time. After moving from Kalamazoo, Michigan, to Nashville, Tennessee (where Gibson electric guitars continue to be made), Gibson finally settled their acoustic operation in Bozeman, Montana, where they continue to make some of the finest guitars on the planet by hand.
