    Happy to hear this turned out well. Good luck with the reset. Count me in as a fan of this burst.

    I think the reason they make so many different guitars is because everyone likes something different. Sometimes theory and hypothesis are only valid in the lab. If you are happy with your guitars, that is all that matters Pete.
    I'm not sure what you're trying to convince people of, but name calling and a caustic persona aren't getting your point across.

    I have 2 guitars with the adj., 3 different saddles materials (tusk, ceramic, and ebony). You could argue that the differences are subtle but not to my ears. Are you saying that they would sound the same VP?

    From what I recall Gibson Bozeman switched the 'bird from long to short around 1997.I have an '87 J-30 often referred to as the "blingless Hummingbird" and it's 24.75" so I have no idea what the '80s 'birds were. On the vintage shores I have seen both long and short, the majority being short. I too am interested to see this thread develop

    Congrats on a great Norlin era box. As others have said there are exceptions.
    I played a '75 SJ the other day (Guitar Center in Cincinnati if anyone is interested) that was quite good. It was not the best guitar I have ever played,but if it was the only one I could have I wouldn't complain. I think they had it dated wrong but it was definitely Norlin. Also cracked between pickguard and fretboard. At $2k+ I wasn't interested.
    Enjoy it!

    I saw that in your post earlier this week Frank. Gibsonless? I was happy for you to have it. Happy to see you moved it along to another appreciative steward,lol. Funny the things that you liked about that guitar were the things I didn't. Hope it served you well.I have just started building 00 & 0 guitars (in the Martin style for now) and understand what you mean about the dread size.

    Hey Will - well I passed the J45 on to a new owner last week.I'm past the point of playing dread size guitars. The new owner has another 1994 with the same nitro lift, so wasn't fazed by tgat at all. It's in good, appreciative hands! Frank

    Hey Will - the J-45 is doing very nicely. It gets its appointed spot in my guitar rotation.It's a great Gibson, with enough grit in its tone to bely the rosewood b&s.
    Happy New Year! Frank
