  1. Went back and tried it - removed the IMG - really weird, the picture flashes up when I press submit but just reverts back to type on the post ... like this https://i.imgur.com/Lduvv6gm.jpg Worked it out. Imgur users click on 'Direct Link' now instead of 'BBCode'.
  2. I'll try another picture. [img]https://i.imgur.com/AlE4Xqgm.jpg[/img] There you go, not working but thanks for the 3 dots tip - found 'Edit'.
  3. It won't let me post pictures anymore or go back and 'Edit' my post! [img]https://i.imgur.com/2YaN7jam.jpg[/img]
  4. Hi JimM, I'm also a 2020 Custom historic 1957 SJ-200 owner and I can see a couple of generalizations in this thread that this guitar just blows out of the water. 'Maple is bright' - nope, my guitar is the warmest, lushest guitar I've ever played, amazing depth. 'Jumbo's need mediums to drive that big top' - sure and you need dynamite to plant daisies - comes from Gibson with PB lights and that's all it needs. I switched to 80/20 lights on the first string change and it even got better! https://i.imgur.com/2YaN7jam.jpg
  5. Here's the case that came with my new 2020 Historic 1957 SJ-200 - nice goodies too.
  6. Would you believe that I made up my mind to sell 3 guitars and decided The Acoustic Centre in South Melbourne would be a good place to put them on consignment. They all arrived safely at the store on the very day before Victoria went into lockdown again. Hope things get back back to normal again soon.
  7. Grover make a Kluson type tuner with a washer and screw-in bushing .
  8. I see you've got 5 days at home to play it now too.
  9. For people with guitars from different makers this Music Nomad Truss Rod Wrench Kit looks fantastic - they make good guitar stuff!
  10. There's a J-200M listed on Reverb with the following description Gibson Custom Shop J-200M 75th Anniversary Trophy. Vintage Sunburst finish. Limited Edition made in 2012 to commemorate the 75 anniversary of the SJ-200 originally released in 1937. The J-200M (M signifies mini body.) features all the deluxe appointments you’d see on a top of the line Gibson Custom Shop SJ-200 in a smaller body size. Made for one year and out of production. This example is Vintage Sunburst. Gibson charges extra $200 for sunburst finish as per their website. https://reverb.com/item/37180960-gibso
  11. The Noel Gallagher signature J-150 a.k.a. the FU-J-150
  12. I believe the EJ-200's were made in 2 locations - Korea and Indonesia (Samick?) I have a 2012, last of the full body, straight acoustic versions before they all went to cutaways with electronics, mine was made in Indonesia and the serial just has numbers; 12032310993.
  13. I guess that after wanting a Gibson SJ-200 for so many years and pouring over the different models and specs, things like Grover roto's versus keystone tuners, 4-bar insert bridge versus 2-bar, sunburst versus natural, to suddenly see a model with upside down crown fret markers just hurt my eyes!
  14. Gibson Tal Farlow archtop with upside down crown inlay fret markers.
  15. I ordered my Custom Historic 1957 SJ-200 in Feb last year - picked it up in October - pretty sure it's the only one here in Australia - seen it listed here but 'Not in Stock'.
