    I think the Mahogany actually sound better amplified.

    This I absolutely agree favourite amplified guitars have always been Mahogany. I do enjoy Maple plugged in as it's very crisp and direct, but it can border on harsh in a way that Mahogany doesn't. I have an identical Fishman Matrix Infinity in my two SJs, the Maple 200 standard and the Mahogany '41 RI 100, and literally the back and sides are the only sonic variable, bar the bridge design. Bling aside, they have the same scale length, top wood, bracing, fretboard and Bridge material, like for like.

    Acoustically, the 200 is HUGE sounding...giant bass and chiming trebles, like a grand piano. The 100 is more polite, less loud and warmer, like an upright piano. Plugged in, it's almost like the 200 is just too much information for the pickup, it sounds great but massively complex. The 100 is warm, articulate, expressive and friendly, and as an amplified guitar, I'd pick the 100 for sure.

    I've also loved the plugged in tone of both electro Hummingbirds I've owned, and the three Mahogany J45s I've owned (one of which is still here, my '67). My old D18 was a very ordinary sounding guitar acoustically, but through the K&K it was fabulous.

    Mahogany just WORKS for me as an amplified tonewood. Weirdly, it doesn't seem to matter which pickup, either.

    The "Tone, Feel, Appearance" case with the deep purple lining? Very cool.

    Oddly enough, this case predates the TFA cases and is unlike any Gibson case I've's covered in rough tan Tolex, has that gorgeous purple lining (and an odd wedge of polystyrene, covered in the purple lining, which is in the cavity where the headstock rests, and the headstock rests against it when the guitar is in the case) and has a gold logo that states "Gibson, Bozeman Montana, Fine Acousfic Guitars"

    I've never seen a similar one, as I said...I'll post a pic when I'm next home.

    Thanks all!!

    She's in beautiful shape, has been well played but clearly looked after and not abused. Some pickguard wear but otherwise in wonderful shape for a 27yr old guitar.

    She also has a brand new bone nut and saddle, has had a full setup, fret dress and plays like absolute butter.

    She's definitely going to get a pickup, all my guitars are ready to do live battle and she already has a drilled endpin as the previous owner used an M1A in her. Can't wait to take her out!!

    Nice jinder
    Can't wait for you and Aussie trying to out metaphor each other

    And ya know , we ALL want a video or sound clip

    Play in good health big fella

    Thanks BBG! Yep indeed, Glenn has been my go-to guy for ten years now whenever I'm after a guitar, absolutely unbeatable guitar buying experience. When I picked up the Bird, I spent several hours playing various beautiful guitars, drinking tea and chatting, no hurry or pressure, just good company, stunning instruments and a great deal!

    Hello Jinder - Did you see the 2 Donovan tunes played on the famous J-200 ?
    Just wanted to put that brick where it belongs.

    I've read your posts and you are very informed. Your comment to the guy who isn't in love with his hummingbird was very interesting. Do you know any similar information on the J 45 custom Rosewood? I love that kind of trivia and love to know it.
    Best regards and Happy Holidays,
