GIBSON LG-1



In 2006  musician and photographer Aaron Warren was touring the Gibson Bozeman plant. He spied something different in the final setup area: there were two guitars with Bob Dylan’s work order attached.
The guitars are labelled as Gibson LG-1, a model that has not been made since the 1960s.

The LG-1 is a small body guitar with spruce top and mahogany sides and back, similar to the J-45 but smaller.

In 2006, Dylan was probably trying to find a smaller guitar that would accommodate the rumored arthritis he has. It is quite common for guitar players to get arthritis in their 60s due to over use.
