  1. In the meantime I did, and the sound is just stunning I have to say.
  2. EA there are houses in Europe, I just bought one!
  3. These mid priced Epiphones are nice guitars, especially the masterbuilts. As we speak I am sitting at the beach with my current beater: a martin backpacker I recently purchased. Real nice solid wood instrument considering the price.
  4. Hmz maybe I was mistaken beceause my luthier used an old ornament from WA-ivory to make my saddle. Shhh, don't tell anybody...:)
  5. Ivory is somewhat harder, but compared to bone the difference is expected to be minimal. I went from plastic fantastic to ivory on my Bird and that indeed was a difference!
  6. http://www.arctubulae.com/files/Bird_new_pins_apr12_2.mp3 My take is the first tune in this mp3 I posted earlier. Not with the right stings as I acknowlegde now (much too bright sounding coated ones), but still a nice Bird!
  7. Guitars are very unpredictable. For example: the Les Paul was not really popular in the 80s, but once players such as Slash started playing them in the late 80s, the guitar's value got to extreme highs again. Acoustics are a bit different I think beceause of the material used. Brazilian guitars are now expensive because they are not made anymore. The same will happen to Indian, making them expensive, and so on...
  8. Good move. Keep us posted on when she flies in.
  9. Sounds real good to my ears. A little darker than I am used to with Birds, might be the strings, might be what's underneath the Bird's mask ;) Either way, sound is awesome.
  10. I totally agree, but at the same time if a company is selling a guitar with the price tag of a Gibson you expect they have things such as specs right on their site/brochures/whatever. To me it still feels silly that although I emailed Gibson about the incorrect string specs 1 year ago, they still have it listed incorrect.

    Wow, killer looks! I thought my bird had fantastic bling status, but it fades besides this J45. I'm one jealous mofo :)
  12. Specs on gibson.com regularly suck, like stating with many guitars they are strung with 11s while they put on 12s.
