My 2017 J-15 did NOT have one.

My '03 J-45 did.


Thanks Murph-I heard back from Bruce, apparently Gibson no longer supply them as standard but heís going to include one for me anyway. I really canít speak highly enough of the service from Wildwood, theyíve been extremely helpful and responsive, really great!

I came to this party a little late but I'm sure you will have fun making the decision. Looking at the guitars in your stable I would think a Martin 00028 or if you can get it a 00045 although I would guess that could be over budget. The 00028EC is also an option but the neck on the standard is better. Yes go for a Martin 00028.

how do you like your JF30-12

I bought one last week it was privately owned by none other than John English and was most likely custom built for him back in the 90's through the Fender/Guild relationship. There is no model number and quite honestly they never made models with this grade of flame. This one also has an ebony board.

This was privately bought from Johns daughter by one of the UK's leading collectors.

makes a nice change from the Gibsons

You need a couch noodling guitar, a small body. Personally Id go for Martin 00-18 or LG-2.

I'm going to suggest a maple bodied AJ, but that's just me.

I recently picked up an SJ200 B-Stock for $3000 CDN ($2300 USD) Perfect - no obvious flaws Something to think about.
