  1. New nectar machine in the roost...'90 Bird

    Today, 03:00 AM

    Hi all,
    As promised in the Hummingbird thread, here is my 1990 Bird. Early Bozeman, Fullerplast finish, lightly built and sounds INCREDIBLE. Rich, warm and articulate, with amazing overtones and very complex and beautiful midrange. It sound ornate and oddly melancholy when fingerpicked, and full and beautiful when strummed or flatpicked. It has SO much thump, the type you can feel as well as hear.

    I really wasn't in a position to go guitar shopping, but around the time my appetite was whetted for another Bird by the chat about them here, I stopped working with the band I was playing electric for, so I found myself with a lot of tradeable electric gear, which went towards this beauty...

  2. The new Big Leaf Maple J45s

    06 July 2017 - 01:40 PM

    These look delicious. Anyone tried one out yet?
  3. Nick Lucas reissues...anyone put any miles on one?

    04 July 2017 - 01:25 PM

    I'm a huge Maple fan and have a great SJ200 and Dove, and have been pondering other Maple delights.

    In my GAS dreams, I'd love to add a Maple AJ and a Nick Lucas to my stable. I'm unlikely to buy either as I'm saving for a Hummingbird 12er, but I'm intrigued by the Nick Lucases.

    Has anyone owned or played one in earnest? I owned a Recording King RNJ-25 for a few years (their NL-alike) and really enjoyed it, but ultimately felt it was a bit overbuilt and stifled a little by the overapplication of Nitro. The neck profile (a VERY shallow oval) was weird too, and exacerbated the CTS that I normally manage to keep at bay.

    I wonder if the real thing would be a bit more to my taste?

    I'd be looking to play bluesy/folky/country fingerstyle on it and I've recently become obsessed with learning Roy Bookbinder style rags which would sound lovely on a nice open sounding parlour. My EL-00 is a ton of fun but the neck is a little skinny to really let my big old fingers dance around some rags.
  4. Pick three from the herd...the ones you'd save in a crisis

    28 June 2017 - 05:38 AM

    I was playing my IB '64 Texan this morning and marvelling at what a great guitar it is, not just "for the money" but in general. I can't ever imagine getting rid of it, and would have been happy with it if it had cost four figures rather than the 200 i paid for it.

    It got me thinking, in a house fire/crisis/desert island scenario, I think the Texan would get the nod over some of my more expensive guitars.

    My question is, which three would you rescue from your herd in such times?

    I'd definitely save my SJ200 and the Texan, but would be very torn between my '67 J45, my Dove and my SJ100. I'd probably grab the Dove because of the backstory and how long I waited for it.
  5. If you had 1000/$1300 to spend...

    26 June 2017 - 05:00 PM

    A friend of mine is after a great acoustic and has 1000ish to spend.

    I've suggested she either spend a bit more and buy a J15 or spend a bit less and buy an Epi IB'64 Texan (I have one and love it).

    What would you buy? Old, new, big, small...she's a tall girl who can handle my SJ200 but doesn't dwarf my EL-00, so anything is possible.

    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,
    Phillip (Tman)
