Summary: In late 1958 Gibson introduced the Gibson LG-0, this guitar was a very popular guitar amongst students. It was an overall great sounding guitar and outperformed most guitars in its price range. These early LG-0 models were superior in sound and quality; they were fitted with a Brazilian rosewood bridge. This worked well tonally with the solid Mahogany tops. This LG-0 originally had one of the plastic bridges that were being used from 1962 to around 1968. It has since been replaced with a Rosewood bridge and a bone saddle.
