  1. CG is "outstanding!" Amen.
  2. That's why there is Marty Barre!
  3. Yes, thank you for making the effort, tpbiii. Those were nice!
  4. A, well done, on that one. Looks good from here. I like the fat necks. Hope you enjoy it!
  5. I receive ACOSTIC GUITAR also and have for years!
  6. Howdy, jmurph! I'm across the river from Cincy. Welcome. No info other than, very nice looking Dove!
  7. I use John Pearse pb lights. edit: try the light touch, it really does seem to bring out the best of my Vintage's tone.
  8. Yea, don't get me wrong. I like my Vintage enough to call it my go to now days. The adi top probably makes the crisp tight sound I hear as the prominent feature.
  9. pg60 - that is how I would describe the sound of my 2016 Vintage to this day. It hasn't darkened as I played it in, and the lack of bass is a little disappointing at times. I finger pick only any more and have come to realize the lighter the touch the better the tone on this guitar. It is a different sound than the standard J-45 for sure. ' Fore I forget the neck is that hefty C shape. *So, to op, the top wood adi and neck shape are areas to check for difference.
  10. Didn't check the specs on the 42 before replying here, but the Vintage is torrefied top.
  11. Should have kept the old Sears catalogs and the outhouse!
  12. maple is special …..… well done!
  13. I bought an R8 when Gibson first ran them several years back. Still have it like new in the case; just too heavy to enjoy much. When I do play it the fat neck just takes a few minutes with which to get comfortable.
  14. I got to thinking a little more on this topic and realized I have a soft spot in my heart for Steve Miller's SEASONS and Family's My Friend The Sun. I still do both these songs to this very day so they must have reached me deeply way back when.
  15. I have a Crow CW and I say Gibson "nailed it" on a great sounding guitar and just leave it at that.
  16. Juan, I appreciate the insight. I have a J-45 Banner from that first run couple years back with the VOS and it polished up without any real effort. I'm just going to have to see the finish on the new AJ and hear the instrument in person as an AJ is the next Gibson I plan on buying. Was looking used first until I heard this was coming, and then the VOS stopped me dead. I like a gloss to start with on a new guitar. The J-45 sound and feel beat the finish issue. Maybe the same will happen on the AJ when I get near one.
  17. Anything Pearls Before Swine did, re: Use of Ashes, Rocket Man, Marjorie. And then there is always, Drunk Again by P.B. & The Butterfield Blues Band!
  18. I want the guitar, but not the VOS finish!
  19. A true sage insight …………… and plain practical also!
