  1. https://baltimore.craigslist.org/msg/d/baltimore-gibson-eas-deluxe-cherry/7126448471.html Pictures aren't the best, but it looks like there's no back bracing = laminate back? Factory electronics? Just wondering if anyone knows something about this model. It looks legit, but an oddball to me. Charlie
  2. Looks good! I am also really curious to hear how this would sound next to a new non-adjustable saddle model to get a true idea of how it changes the tone - two new guitars would remove variables such as age, modifications, wear and tear etc.
  3. I have a 2001 J-50, it has the individual white button closed back tuners like BK's - I got mine in 2010 but I don't see evidence on mine that it ever had anything else FWIW
  4. It looks like a J-50 - The FON stamped on the inside starts with Y, which indicates a 1953 body. But the 20-fret neck and especially the serial number on the back of the headstock (70388) point to a mid-to-late 60s neck. I'm sure others may chime in here.
  5. Re: stock Fishman UST - I just wasn't satisfied with it and put in a K&K mini, IMO it has a much more natural sound with a handy volume wheel in the soundhole, a big upgrade if you play plugged in.
  6. My 2001 J-50 had a UST pickup which appeared to be factory but I can't prove it.
  7. It looks like they have the thermally aged adirondack top - I haven't heard an AJ with one of those yet, would like to play one.
  8. Sounds good. I like the pick guard on the J-45 studio - thought it was a J-50 from here.
  9. I'm not clear on the specs for the 1942 SJ - pictures have rosewood b/s but the first set of specs says mahogany back and sides. Then it says rosewood back and sides at the lower set of specs. With a possible couple of exceptions during the wartime period, weren't SJs generally mahogany?
  10. Congrats on the new guitar. The white tuners look so much better.
  11. Looks like a '90s to early 2000's J-50 - white tuners and not Grovers. I have a 2001 J-50 that looks just like this.
  12. Looks good, love the aged look after only 18 years. I think it's an advantage that the blonde finish yellows more visibly than on a dark sunburst. Keep us posted on the progress.
  13. From the type of music that you list, it seems to me the Hummingbird is a better fit. But Sal has a good point, the AJ would give you something different to play when you feel like it. Your post doesn't say where you are, but in the US, there are always plenty of AJs for sale on Reverb for very good prices, you can always change your mind and pick one up some other time.
