Gibson Nathaniel Rateliff LG-2 Western Vintage Sunburst

$ 3399.00


This Gibson Nathaniel Rateliff LG2 is the perfect partner for a wide range of musical styles.
Nathaniel Rateliff’s music, both solo and with the Night Sweats, incorporates a uniquely appealing blend of folk, soul, Americana, and R&B. His new Gibson LG-2 Western is also a blend of Nathaniel’s own vintage Gibson LG-2 and Country Western. The smaller-sized mahogany body and Adirondack red spruce top deliver vintage-approved tone. The 24 3/4″ scale length bound mahogany neck features split parallelogram inlays, and the headstock is crowned with a mother of pearl Gibson block logo and Crown inlay, a nod to the Country Western, while the nickel Gotoh Keystone tuners and black bridge pins are reflections of Nathaniel’s personal guitar. The volume and tone controls of the onboard LR Baggs® VTC electronics are mounted at the bottom of the soundhole, per Nathaniel’s preferences; the LR Baggs pickup makes the Nathaniel Rateliff LG-2 Western stage-ready right out of the case.
