  1. Gibson used screws in 67 to attach pick guard as well i do believe .
  2. What size is the replaced bridge plate ? Thickness and dimension ? Not sure how the bracing will differ from 1955 to 62 .. but the bridge pad is certainly a point of interest . Is your replaced pad made of solid maple ? Eighth inch thick thick......1 and 7 sixteenths wide....is the preferred dimension .
  3. Hi there ,my 2 cents worth ...take your guitar to a music shop that sells straps ,put on your mask and go inside and try out the straps until you find a great fit . imo a good strap ....and you are gonna have to pay more than 10 bucks for one , should fit snuggle ,be made of good material ,have leather ends that attach to the end pin and strap button .
  4. Hi ,sorry for being late to the party ...i have a 1999 Gibson Acoustic brochure ...here`s what it says about the j 50 . Classic 1960`s edition with 60`s pickguard.

Bridge dots ,,Rosewood fretboard and Bridge . 1 and 23/32 nut width .
  5. Hey , can you give us some pictures to look at ? The video was short and ....well... not so sweet lol . Judging by the pick guard its a j 45 ....rectangular bridge ...1948 `47 ....pic of head stock wil be a real help.
  6. Justin was a young ,caring ,talented man who wrote beautiful songs through a wounded soul . However hard he tried to get clean the wounds pulled him back under . I wish he was here putting pen to paper , blessing us with his honest story telling songs . I hope Justin is in a place where he can rest comfortably.

  9. Hi Dave ,Does your guitar have Made In America stamped under the serial number ? If it does it is from the 70`s
  10. Hello folks ,hope i can find an answer here . I bought a used j 45 ....how can i tell if the pins are bone or Tusq ? Thanks .
  11. That`s a real beauty , i wish guitars could talk and tell their story . Is that a photo you took JC ?
  12. I must say ,the Richlite fingerboard was great , looked great , slick and good feeling ,would never have thought it was a composite of glue and recycled paper or such . The bridge was looking like ebony but i`m sure it wasn`t . Really impressed with the the tone ,fit and finish . It was more toneful than the j 200 and the Bird hanging beside it .
  13. The wood in the rain forests of Brazil and other used and abused countries are not harvested in a sustainable manner . Those forests of timbre, flora and fauna are long long... RBSinto ....you can grow Walnut in your back yard Zone 5 a ...
