Mac DeMarco’s 1940s Gibson LG-2
Mac DeMarco was seen using this guitar at the Pitchfork Live concert filmed on May 8, 2017, and on the gig he played for the Konbini YouTube channel sometime later that year.
Based on the looks, the guitar is a Gibson LG-2. Some sources have it listed as a J-45, but Mac’s guitar is smaller, and it has more pronounced body contours than a J-45. The two do look very alike though, so the confusion is understandable.
Mac’s LG-2 has an old-school Gibson script logo, which was used on Gibson guitars up until around 1947. The LG-2 model was introduced in 1940, so that means that Mac’s guitar was made sometime between those two years.
Also worth noting is that on both occasions when Mac used this guitar, he had what looks like the Sunrise S2 soundhole pickup in it.
