  1. Pictures are necessary to get further - they will trigger the info you need.
  2. There are a lot of factors in play. It's up to the individual judgement to find out where the limits go. On all parameters. If life seems too short to spent/waste time on the differences between tusq, plast, bone and horn, then fine. What does the next player care. The whole fun is to figure out and adjust all these factors - including tuners - yourself.
  3. P.S. - never underestimate the effect of different pin materials. Science can hear it, , , hmmm, so can I. The saddle of course plays a huge role, but, , , again don't underplay nut material either. I know from experimenting with 4 or 5 variants on my 1963 J-45.
  4. No, but will find it soon. Searching a bit here and there just brought me to this 2014 thread. Going for chrome ovals and if I decide to move it won't be the first switch. Done it on a Dove, which got aged golden Kluson waffles and on a Mart. D-18 not so long ago. Also aged nickel Waverly ovals went on that one. Big pleasure in both cases - haven't looked back.
  5. Look forward ^ in fact just researched StewMac 5 mins ago for some replacements for my better and better and better 2010 J-45 Std.
  6. It's a beautiful guitar and a good place to start - the Dread. Must be a matter of time before it can be heard. Exciting. The volute design ? , , , could live with it but. .
  7. Yes, recall finding it good, , , but the Co. being too close to Nazareth. .
  8. Thanx for this update. So cool that Ferguson is ready to take another round. Will be exciting to follow, , , and not least hear what he/they have created. Wish them luck
  9. A pleasure, , , , gettin' the chance to refresh that recollection from the hip. .
  10. And then there is the half-sibling - the J-30. Wonder if anybody can remember the difference. . https://www.ebay.com/itm/Gibson-J-30-AN-1992/274510749624?_trkparms=aid%3D555023%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIMRVI%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20190711100440%26meid%3Dd5e59c635767435
  11. The lacquer on mine from 2010 did peel off up where the binding meets the black nut. It was a much shorter, but broader piece and it annoyed me. The lacquer slightly lifted but stayed on - I cannot see the exact situation on yours. Think I glued it back down at some point, ain't sure. There's still a vague trace of the issue.
  12. P.S. - check DanvillRob in the performance-section. He may be playing a ditto J-50 there. .
  13. Good to see and hear you back - the form seems to be fine. Still enjoy that setting too. Who's the black'n'white girl in the center - Linda ?
