  1. Be patient, been there a few times and it always ends up where it should. This Monday is a holiday too.
  2. I think this is our life, Z. A big part anyway.
  3. Hope the twisters dance right past, Sparky. At least in the great white north the snow doesn't pick your life up and throw it down somewhere else, but you still have to dig out the car now and then.
  4. Guess you guys are right...he hasn't unveiled his 'gift' yet. Nothing's more fun on the forum than muddled language.
  5. Hi Nick. I think he's saying they are Reverb pics he's using to track down what it is, but I'm figuring the guitar in the photo is the one he has in hand. Hopefully...for his sake anyway. Guess I have to show mine, which also has the 'downflowing' pick guard pattern.
  6. Yep. 30's-40's is the ballpark. One of the great Gibson small bods. Looks all original, too. You might get lucky and find some identifying numbers up inside where the neck meets the body, but in the meantime soak up the joy in knowing most of those who will read this are green with envy. What a beauty! Your friend has given you a great gift, worth a few thousand bucks.
  7. OK...go ahead and buy it, have it shipped to me. I'll figure out how to get it over to you. My uncles work in shipping, so to speak. They say we can go through Nick, who's right on the water. We'd both love to A-B with ours. So you're fixating on yours, playing it most often? I'm stuck on mine right now, too.
  8. Yeah, plus you're the only guy with clips that demo every guitar you own. Let's just say your J is an old soul.
  9. I could work with this number for the one on Elderly...with haggling, of course. https://www.elderly.com/products/gibson-j-50-1959?utm_campaign=Vintage_Instruments_1620&utm_content=vintage_instruments_1620_vintage_list&utm_medium=email&utm_source=zaius
  10. The 'For Sale' forum has been deep-sixed, but it doesn't stop folks from making others aware that they have an instrument to sell. What happens after info sharing is none of Gibson's business.
  11. If that's a stripped burst, someone did a nice job. I just look at it as faded and/or shadowed by photography.
  12. There are anomalies, for sure. J50 with an odd pick guard. Hog back and sides look like mine. It's waiting for someone to re-install the adj saddle. What sticks out to me is the high price tag. Here's a good comparison listing. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-Gibson-J-50-Acoustic-Guitar-with-Hardshell-Case/114005227824?_trkparms=aid%3D1110001%26algo%3DSPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131231084308%26meid%3D51a16eb863cb4880b2427ae48ae34a46%26pid%3D100752%26rk%3D9%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D264564948754%26itm%3D114005227824%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100752.m1982
  13. I like Reverb, but a local C'list or guitar shop might work for you. So are there no other parts than what's in the photo?
  14. The bridge parts and tuners are gone? Not impossible or that expensive to get. I think the finish is appropriate for a guitar that age, so that would be wasting money, but I think it would be interesting to at least get it usable, better for selling. How'd you know the fretboard was replaced, K? Dave
  15. Repair/restoration considerations for a guitar like this would be on a case by case basis. If you live far from a big town, where finding a skilled luthier is sketchy, you could end up devaluing. Folks looking to invest in this level guitar tend to prefer making their own choices about what to fix and who is permitted to lay hands on it. Dave
