    Hahaha...That's Gas-X wouldn't cured my GAS.By the way.Could someone please tell me more about the Honky tonk guitar that I just bought? I tried Gibson website but couldn't find much information about it.I thought it was one of J45 custom rosewood.And what's story with the dice?


    Dwight Yoakam signature model. In terms of construction quite similar to the J45 Custom Rosewood you thought it might be: Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides. Besides the dice which mark it out as a Deuce, the other appointments make it a Southern or Southerner Jumbo rather than a J45: bound neck, additional rosette ring, multi-ply top and back binding, crown inlay in the headstock, and above all the double parallelogram fret marker inlays.

    The SJ was originally introduced during WWII as a fancier J45 for buyers south of the Mason-Dixon line, though it found customers up north too (Woody Guthrie bought his in NYC). It has traditionally had a spruce top and mahogany back and sides like the standard J45s and J50s. Already in 1943, though, a number of SJs were built with rosewood back and sides, and Woody Guthrie's instrument had that configuration apparently. So the spruce and rosewood SJ effectively has a history as long as the SJ itself.

    Nice guitar, and for my money the most desirable of the 3 you've bought, but then I own an SJ.

    Beautiful, and the pick guard placement is period correct. I've left mine as it came. As Goto says, it's a sign that Ren was in charge. Hope it sounds as good as it looks.
