When Arlo Guthrie brought the battered old LG-2 3/4-sized acoustic his father Woody had given him to Gibson in 2002, he was looking to have it restored. The result was not only an entire revitalization of his original, but also the creation of a new signature model, the Arlo Guthrie LG-2 3/4-sized acoustic-- a guitar with a voice almost as distinctive as that of its namesake. Perfect for finger-picking folk and blues, the Arlo Guthrie LG-2 is an outstanding small scale guitar for experienced pickers and newcomers alike.
Small Size, Big Sound
When you think of Arlo Guthrie, you think of jaunty finger-picked lines beneath mellow vocalizations, and the LG-2 3/4 is precisely the right instrument for this style of play. Quality short-scale acoustics are know for their brightness, and with this guitar, the use of AA-grade sitka spruce for the top and mahogany for sides produces a rich, mellow tone with the snappiness you need for finger-picking. Don't be fooled by its diminutive size: the Arlo Guthrie LG-2 delivers all the tone and character you expect from a custom Gibson.
New features on a classic guitar
With the Guthrie LG-2, Gibson has stayed true to the legacy of the original while also updating it with the latest advances in construction and design. The tuners are Gotah white buttons, built with precision and durability to avoid any potential slipping-- which is ideal for the more aggressive pickers out there. The teardrop pickguard and ornamental rosette are installed by hand, and so is the scalloped bracing, optimizing the tightness and balance of the sound.
