Sitka Spruce Top, Mahogany Back and Sides

Sitka spruce is the perfect choice for the top wood on the LG-2 due to its straight, uniform grain, longevity and tensile strength. Using sitka spruce offers a perfect soundboard, and generates a broad dynamic range that can accommodate many different playing styles. Combined with mahogany back and sides, the LG-2 American Eagle offers a beautiful tone with the highest quality that you would expect from a Gibson guitar. Mahogany offers a rich, thick present midrange and an earthy voice that is especially used in blues and bluegrass music. As well as a superb tone, the choice of mahogany also offers a beautiful grain and adds to the overall visual impact of the acoustic guitar.

L.R. Baggs Element Active Acoustic Pickup System

The LG-2 American Eagle comes equipped with the popular Element Active Acoustic Pickup System from L.R. Baggs, which features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamp with an unobtrusive and removable volume control mounted just inside the Soundhole, the Element delivers performance not previously attainable from an undersaddle pickup. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar. This also improves 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."

Scalloped X-Bracing

As with many of Gibson's acoustic range, the LG-2 features traditional scalloped x-bracing. This particular type of bracing consists of two braces forming an 'X' shape across the soundboard which not only enhances the sound and offers a balanced tone, but also provides a reinforced sturdy structure.

Mini Nickel Grover Tuners

Grover's mini tuners are an engineering marvel, Taking the original design and making them smaller to create plenty of space between each tuner for easy tuning. With a gear ratio of 14:1, the tuners deliver precision tuning that will keep the guitar sounding perfect for an enhanced playing experience. Each tuner is enclosed in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post to keep you playing for as long as possible. Each moving part is cut for exact meshing to eliminate the possibility of slippage, while a countersunk tension screw lets players regulate the tuning tension to any degree. A special lubricant inside the gear box provides smooth and accurate tuning stability.
