  1. I created this backing track so others could use it for singing / playing. Play or sing over it and post back here 🙂 I don't know how to insert youtube videos, so here's a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nn6rB0-F6ww Here's the lead sheet https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CGCUfgX9ZzRTsFOL7L5HwFg4Bs0Av2Kf/view?usp=sharing
  2. Well, i'm supposing the OP already made his purchase, but as someone who has bought a new Gibson J-45 last year (albeit a custom shop), I can say.....YES. The J-45 Vintage was also my runner up, along with the J-185 Vintage. Really good stuff. In the same price range, i was also looking at used Collings, Santa Cruz's, Bourgeois, etc. In the end, the Gibson had the sound I wanted and I couldn't be happier.
  3. 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.
  4. Well, i can trade you my J-45 WITH COA for yours 🙂 heck, i'll even pick it up local
  5. 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
  6. 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 🙂
  7. My acoustic version of "The Way You Look Tonight" with my J-45 The Way You Look Tonight
  8. 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?
  9. LOL, sorry for that. I'll see if I can update the title 🙂 COA: Certificate Of Authenticity CME: Chicago Music Exchange
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. So, i really like the retros now!!! Here's some strumming 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1A_UFJcyevI
  13. 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
  14. Wow, what an awesome guitar! Sweet Cheeks, eh? Def jealous of that bold grain!
