    Thanks for the recommendations! Hitting the shop today (and, if that fails, Amazon).

    Cheers, friends, appreciate the kind words and advice. - B

    Rather useless probably, check cracks usually begin near wood, so applying whatever outside will not help (if it is lacquer check).
    I don't find it bad, a gibson with lacquer hairlines is nice and sexy...
    If it is a mark above (means it has been damaged by something on the surface) then polish may help a bit...

    My son in law is 35 and he liked my 1974 J-50 so much that I gave it to him.[/img]

    Do you happen to have another daughter to marry?

    I think we old guys 50+ are then end of an era for acoustic guitars...I also think companies such as Gibson and Martin realize this and are trying to wring every last dollar out of it. If you are buying a guitar for resale value I would think it isnt worth it.....most young people arent interested in acoustic music. Imagine how many acoustics (and electric!) Guitars are going to be for sale when we are gone....just think if you could transport yourself 25 years in the future you could pick up an awesome Gibson ot Martin dirt cheap!

    Sorry for the bad english below...

    I really disagree somewhat... Not that much young people listen classic music/orchestra/symphonies...
    Still old violins prices increase... why would it be different with guitars ?
    There will always be people playing these instruments, and even more people to listen. There is just nothing like real acoustic music. It has something fascinating to hear the sound coming mechanically from the instrument.

    Same comparison can be made with watches, quartz never killed mechanical/automatic luxury watches business.

    Anyone knows about these ? It looks like they would work without drilling additional hole ?

    So a natural less-bling long-scale rosewood Hummingbird? (Or maybe the bird is a more-bling short-scale mahogany J30?)
    Very very cool. And congrats!

    Yes, or maybe a square shoulders less-bling J-200 with rosewood back and sides?

    Congrats, pictures are small but must be a beauty. Guess the sound is great as well, can't wait to hear it.
