  1. Thanks--It is a 2018. Apparently it was hanging on the wall for a couple of years. Got a killer deal on it compared to the model being offered today.
  2. Recently purchased a new LG-2AE. Love the size love the tone. Was a little disappointed that there is a flaw that looks like a manufacturing flaw and not store damage. Looks like a finish issue where the body meet the neck. Also the binding looks compressed or sanded down att he same location. That might be normal for guitar construction for all I know. I did buy the guitar sight unseen online. I've decided to live with the flaw based on loving the tone. I exchanged a high end Ukulele once on principle for a slight imperfection. The one that came back was perfect in every way but didn't sound anywhere near as good as the one I gave up. Lesson learned. No plans of flipping this, it's a keeper. I am sure it will be dinged up at least slightly soon enough. This does sort of validate some of what I've read about Gibsons QC. So once again, hello everyone. Happy playing.
  3. Hello everyone. Perpetual beginner here. Have had a Martin knock off for years that I would pick up from time to time but never to the point that I could actually play. Same 6 chords that that I had trouble changing between. A month or so ago I started with an online course. Decided to stick to one (I tend to wander) and work through it. Wouldn't you know, I am making sounds that almost resemble music. Birthday coming up in a few days (55). Have lusted after a J45 for years. Couldn't justify the price vs. my level of play (really wanted Mahogany though). Was all ready to order a J15 instead and decided to go test drive a few at the local GC. Turns out my 3 shoulder surgeries made the J15 a poor option. My RT shoulder just wasn't having it. Picked up a L-00 which suited me a bit better comfort wise. Something about it just didn't work for me though. Went home and started researching options. Short story long - I found a new 2018 LG2AE online, negotiated a fair price, and rolled the dice. Satisfies the Mahogany craving in a smaller package. Should be here in a couple of days. Just wanted to say hi. Looking forward to the journey. Any and all tips, tricks, and recommendations are welcome. Don
