  1. Hello all, I hope you enjoy this new song about one of my favorite cities. https://youtu.be/2RFL8Tpu2Lg I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thank you!
  2. Hope you enjoy this one. Artwork by yours truly.
  3. Thank you. I currently do Beatles sets at Strawberry Fields in Central Park, NYC for anyone who would like to come by and say "hi." Weekends at around 3pm. I play my Epiphone there though.
  4. Yes, be patient. When you meet it, you will know. :) In the meantime, play as many as possible and then it will give you an idea of what is out there. Let the anticipation be enjoyable.
  5. Here's a great video of Tommy Emmanuel playing the J-45:
  6. I've met a few mediocre ones and wasn't really impressed until I met my match. Maybe you have to kiss a lot of frogs...
  7. You're really lucky to have found such a great deal. It makes me think that maybe I paid too much. Oh well, at least I knew what I was getting, which is why I wanted to shop local.
  8. I'll say! I was just thinking to myself that the J-45 is the perfect representation of who I am - strong, sturdy, fine, understated (no bling), amazing tone, classic, etc. I am thrilled to have found my counterpart and hope we go places together. :)
  9. Thank you for your thoughts and wishes. I am so very happy. Though I still love my other guitars, I know that I've found the ultimate one. Of course, I see myself getting a smaller body Gibson in the future. We shall see... I would love to hear your music. Are you on YouTube or SoundCloud?
  10. Hello all,In 2017, I went to the Guitar Center and played a J-45 for the first time. I was smitten, but the 2750 price tag was overwhelming to me. I thought to myself, how in the world am I going to be able to afford one of these? I convinced myself that the guitars that I had, which are good, would satisfy. But, something kept me searching. After waiting patiently, saving up and getting a day job, the stars aligned and I happened to see an ad on Craigslist.Of course in this time of waiting, I also looked at other great guitars like the Martin D-28 and OM-28, but I came back to the J-45 for its balanced tone and how well it accompanies my singing.Needless to say, this is a dream come true. When I play this guitar, I feel a sense of “Oh my God!” that doesn’t happen with every J-45. The look, sound and feel is like an elixir from the gods. I am so happy to have come across a special one and one that has such sentimental value (he proposed to his fiance with this). This is a lifetime guitar for me and I will love it, cherish it, and play it with joy – for myself and for the people.I wanted to share this story to say that fairy tales can come true.I'd love to hear your stories!Cheers,Paulinap.s. If has to be love at first strum.
  11. I was just gifted with one and have taken it into the shop for repairs. So, yes, to answer your question. Very much looking forward to playing it.
  12. Hi, I'm a budding singer/songwriter/guitarist who plays at Strawberry Fields, Central Park in New York. Happy to connect with others and to find a Gibson that's right for me. Maybe my SoundCloud tracks would give you an idea of what I'm after. https://soundcloud.com/user-426295887 I've just been given an Epiphone FT-150 and have taken it into the shop to get the neck reset. It's been helpful to read about those bolt-on necks here. Many thanks, Paulina Butterfly 2019 Emerald X20ele2006 Martin DCX1E2016 Seagull Entourage Rustic Mini Jumbo2016 Ibanez AVN5 OPN2018 Martin LXM2016 Taylor Big Baby1980 Takamine C-128
  13. I appreciate your comments. I took this into an experienced luthier and he'll be doing a neck reset and set-up for $150. I've been doing a lot of research on this model and while I haven't heard the greatest things about it, I'm curious to see how it will turn out. I'm more concerned about playability. If I enjoy playing her, she's a keeper.
