1964 Gibson LG-1 new bridge & bridge plate

This old songbird came in for some well needed repairs/upgrades.

These old LG’1’s came from the factory with horrendous plastic bridges. So first step was to replace the original with a lovely custom made Brazilian rosewood replacement.

The other downside with these guitars is their spruce bridge plate – which does no favours for the stability of the top, and offers poor resistance against decades of string ball ends. So a replacement hard maple bridge plate was put in its place
