  1. On the subject of Kermit the Frog, when my niece was 4 or 5 years old she heard "Going Up the Country" by Canned Heat and thought Kermit was singing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eQMA_noRYQ

  3. The only problem with this strategy is: they're gonna sell it all for what you told them you paid for them.
  4. Here's another one (sold) that was stamped on the same day as mine. Only two digits off. https://www.vintageandrare.com/product/Gibson-J45-Flamed-Maple-Limited-Edition-2006-68599#prettyPhoto Again ebony board and bridge. Mine's rosewood.
  5. It's a 2006. The label says J-45 Custom Flame LTD. Here's one that sold recently: https://loviesguitars.com/product/rare-gibson-j-45-custom-shop-flamed-maple-limited-1-of-40-2006-vintage-natural-ohsc/ They claim it's 1 of 40. Of course it has ebony board and bridge. According to the serial #, mine was stamped two days after this one.
  6. Nice story about the SJ200. The maple J45 is a Flamed Maple LTD. I don't know how many were made. I've seen 4 others on-line (I believe another member here has one). All of the other ones I've seen have ebony boards and bridges. Mine's rosewood.
  7. I haven't been playing much. I was spending more time humidifying than playing. The Martin D-60 and the Gibson SJ-45 Deluxe were the hardest to part with. They were just too pretty. I'll be selling my house soon and downsizing. I want to move as little stuff as possible, even though I'm staying in the local area. I was going to keep what I considered the three best sounding guitars, but my J-45 Rosewood developed a crack at the head stock, so off it went.
  8. Well, I shipped out my last "culled" guitar, today: I went from this:
  9. https://musicvilla.com/collections/gibson-acoustics/products/gibson-j-45-studio-walnut-0034 *This particular guitar has upgraded Parallelogram fingerboard inlays!
  10. I have a J-45 Flamed Maple LTD with a rosewood bridge and fingerboard. All the others I've seen have ebony. You would think a limited run would be consistent. I like my "oddball".
  11. I had a '57 ES-125 with the original case that looked a lot like your case. I bought a hard shell case for and kept the original. When I sold the guitar to a local shop, I asked them which case they wanted. They took the original.
  12. I have to weigh in on this. Though in storage (my closet), I did keep it humidified at all times. I am not a monster. At one time I had seven acoustic in my closet. I would regularly check the humidity situation. I had a digital hydrometer in each case. I am down to 4 guitars now and this is the only one that suffered any damage.
