This Gibson LG-1 was Gibson's budget flat top in the early 1950's, essentially the same as the LG-2 but with simpler ladder-bracing under the top instead of the more elaborate X-pattern. The materials and cosmetics are exactly the same, the only way to tell the difference is to peer into the back edge of the soundhole! The sound is usually somewhat brighter and less sophisticated, with something like a mix of Gibson and Stella characteristics.
