Topics I've Started

  1. Shadow pickups

    09 August 2017 - 10:36 AM

    Hi All,
    I'm currently in Croatia on some tour management/guitar tech work. The artist I'm TMing/Teching for had some drama when we landed yesterday-the airline lost his J45...we've had a long day trying to track it down but to no avail yet.

    As such, the festival organisers have hired an Epi EJ200CE for us to use. At soundcheck just now, I was literally ASTONISHED at how great this guitar sounded. The artist in question tunes down a whole step, and the Baggs Element in his J45 tends to fart a bit with the downtuned 13s on it, but the EJ200 just sounds warm and huge. It has the Nanoflex/Nanomag blend pickup and is an incredible sounding guitar for the money.

    Has anyone else had good results with Shadow pickups? I have a Nanoflex in my Texan and it's pretty good, especially through my Aura 16.
  2. Sigma Gibson copies...anyone played one?

    06 August 2017 - 01:09 PM

    Hi all,
    I was idly browsing teh interwebz today (as you do) when a google ad popped up advertising the new Sigma copies of classic Gibsons, such as this hair-raisingly litigiousness-friendly rip off of an AJ:


    These are selling in the U.K. For around 550 with Fishman electronics. I'm amazed that Gibson haven't intervened, their SJ200 and L-00 copies are similarly accurate looking.

    Has anyone played one? Are they just generic Pac Rim laminate copies that are all show and no go, or are they any good?
  3. A new record peeps out into the light of day...

    03 August 2017 - 05:28 AM

    Hi all, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post overt links to my music here but I have a new album's a bluesy beast loads of luxuriant Gibson action on it in the form of my Dove and '67 J45. It's available to buy on CD from my website and all the usual places (I won't post sales links for the CD) but you can also stream it here:

    Spotify https://open.spotify...gdR5LYFCrBxeMR5


    Amazon MP3

    Would love to know your thoughts!
  4. If you had to pick just one...the "Desert Island Guitar" thread.

    31 July 2017 - 02:19 PM

    Okay, ignore the fact that humidity issues would be a nightmare on a desert island...but if you had to pick just one acoustic guitar to do it all for the rest of your days, what would it be?

    For me, the SJ200. It's a VERY close run thing between the 200, the Dove and the Hummingbird, but I've played SJ200s as my main stage, writing and recording guitar for well over a decade and eight of my ten albums have been made using an SJ200 of some description. They fit me (I'm a 6'7", 260lb guy so like a big guitar!), the neck just falls where my hands live and the tone is big, brave and beautiful.

    Plus, Townes Van Zandt, Rev. Gary Davis, Emmylou and countless others can't be wrong...

    How about you?
  5. "Martin mastered Rosewood, Gibson mastered Mahogany and Maple"...thoughts?

    27 July 2017 - 03:00 AM

    Hi all,
    I had a very interesting debate with a friend recently about tonewoods and which manufacturer does what best. Whilst we both agreed that the AJ was a spectacularly powerful guitar, his thoughts were that Martin were the masters of making Rosewood instruments, and Gibson were the go-to guitars for Mahogany and Maple.

    This was sparked by me saying about how much more I'm enjoying my 1990 Hummingbird than the '06 D18 I owned for a while last year.

    I'm half in agreement, but then again the OM18V is one of my favourite instruments ever (still miss the one I owned 10yrs ago!) and guitars like BluesKing777's D18 are just wonderful.

    What are your thoughts...? I think it's an interesting concept and one that could make for a great debate ☺️

    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)
