Stapleton’s favorite acoustic guitar is his late father’s well–worn, mid–’50s Gibson LG–2. Stapleton’s father, a Kentucky coal miner, bought the budget flat top parlor guitar (a ’57 price list shows a sunburst LG–2 costing $97.50, which is about $850 in today’s dollars) with plans to learn how to play, but never found the time.
