  1. I'm now a firm believer in the dirty strings theory (or science). This Thursday will be 1 year with the same set of strings on my J-45, and I've really grown fond of the sound. They are NOT dead sounding, but nice. I'm a music major and play guitar every day. Since day 1, I've been using the GHS fast fret product to clean the strings. Maybe not EVERY time I play, but most times I play. BUT I've never really wiped them down after using it. A couple days ago, I finally decided to use a terry cloth towel to wipe the stings down after using the fast fret. The towel didn't show any signs of dirt/filth, but the strings suddenly sounded and felt brand new. The string squeak that faded after the first few weeks of playing was suddenly back along with more top end. I guess the fast fret made sure the strings didn't get TOO dirty, but it didn't really clean them out like the terry cloth. I'm hoping to make a video comparing them to a video when they were first put on. Not sure there will be much of a difference now..... really amazed.
  2. Well, i can trade you my J-45 WITH COA for yours 🙂 heck, i'll even pick it up local
  3. Thanks so much. I actually ended up re-recording it as I forgot my intro (required for class), and I wasn't super happy with the vocals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFIrX-8us6E
  4. Well, I could take a picture of my wife holding my guitar, then put THAT in the frame. Then it'd be my 2 favorite things in the world in 1 picture 🙂
  5. My acoustic version of "The Way You Look Tonight" with my J-45 The Way You Look Tonight
  6. I see where you guys are going with it and agree with those sentiments. I'm thinking more along the lines of how can it be re-purposed, like maybe taking out the COA and using it as a Gibson branded picture frame?
  7. LOL, sorry for that. I'll see if I can update the title 🙂 COA: Certificate Of Authenticity CME: Chicago Music Exchange
  8. Earlier this year I requested a COA for my "1942 J-45 Legend" I had purchased from CME last August. Vincent in customer service was super great in getting one to me. However, they sent me the wrong one the first time, so now I have this extra COA for a "1942 J-45 Banner" with serial # 12699052 hanging out in a drawer LOL What should I do with this? I'm sure people would buy it, but I don't want to contribute to any forgeries/scams. By chance, does anyone in this forum own that guitar?
  9. I know this is an old thread, but Vincent helped me earlier this year as well! My "1942 J-45 Legend" didn't come with a COA, and he was able to get one sent out to me.
  10. So, i really like the retros now!!! Here's some strumming 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1A_UFJcyevI
  11. Put up a short video with the Martin Retros on . Probably not much difference right after the change, but we shall see how these age...... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNrnKkHjhfg
  12. Wow, what an awesome guitar! Sweet Cheeks, eh? Def jealous of that bold grain!
  13. Yeah, i was surprised to see the thin finish on the Vintage. How do you like yours?
  14. Ahh, i didn't know either of those things. Now it makes more sense why they looked so contrasted. you'd be seeing bare wood through the "clear" part where here you're seeing the bursted finish.
