  1. I agree with Jinder 100 %. Maple and Mahogany are the way to go if you sing. JC
  2. Folks, I hope you enjoy this sessions as much as I have: I think the Gibson is a J 15 Walnutburst JC
  3. Being left handed . I was looking to upgrade my old Yamaha which had been my main guitar for a few years.At that time quality lefties were hard to find. I found a one off Sj 200 True Vintage lefty at Fuller’s Vintage Guitar in Houston.It was purchased without ever being played or inspected by me. Needless to say it was amazing ! JC
  4. That J 180 is not her guitar actually. It was gifted to her by Madonna after T.S acted as Madonna’s guitarrist for a performance of her hit song Ghost Town at some award show. It seems after she was gifted that J 180 you saw her with less and less Taylor Guitars. Madonna isn’t really known as a guitarrist but as an artist and as a writer of hit pop songs she is someone who is in a class of her own.I’m sure that J 180 holds a special meaning for that reason. It was one of several J 180’s M has. JC
  5. Wishing you nothing but the best while you rebuild your home and hopefully at some point your guitar collection. Thank You for sharing your story. Nice 200 Quilt !!! Good to know your dog is still with you. JC
  6. Nick , Are you sure it was a bird? it may have been this 1963 country western (photo attached) I do know she played it on the “Car Wheels” tour after that she’s mostly played 45’s live.I read that same C & W was played by Duane Allman for a session or show in Gatlinburg, TN in early 1971. JC
  7. Folks, Check it out: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fZNwQjNe-AQ The bird is a 68. Not sure about the Jumbo. They do an amazing job on this Lucinda Williams tune. I hope everyone is well. JC
  8. i have a lefty on order through Fullers Guitar. isnt this body a bit too large to have the Wide 30s style X bracing ??? Honestly it sounds amazing when she plays it in the video. thanks for sharing JC
  9. Em7, That’s not Clayton but he may have lent the guitar to that guy for a recording session. Clayton appears in blue with Keef here: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/4524295.amp/ he was or is in a band called Dirty Strangers. I’m saying it’s a 64 because Clayton has said it is.Either Keef told him he bought it in 64 or he has had the serial # checked out. Some people seem to think Brian,Jagger and Richards shared one blonde bird and that it was passed around for years between them 3. I think it’s pretty clear this is not true after seeing these recent pics of Keith’s old blondie.The guard is still intact and has no screws ... Whereas Jagger’s had the screws back in Vienna 1973 and still does today. The only mod I can see on Jagger’s is it used to have the Belly up/Insert saddle bridge and it now has a belly down/fixed saddle one. I’ve cut the photo of Jagger’s so the screws in the guard can be seen more than anything else. JC
  10. Folks, Many of us assumed it was stolen and never recovered. It appears that was never the case.From what I’ve been able to piece together Keith always has that guitar until the year 2000 when he gave it to a guy he worked with named Alan Clayton. Also it appears to be a 64 and not a 67/68 as some people believe JC
  11. Folks, Check it out: True Vintage = Non Torrified Adi Vintage = Torrified Adi For me the True Vintage wins it just sounds more organic. How about you? JC
  12. Joe, Glad you are getting into maple. I’ve never found a Rosewood guitar that I though sounded any good (I guess my ears don’t like harsh tones) ... Maple has never let me down ! Some people consider maple a dead sounding wood but I believe that what they are actually reffering to is it’s quick decay as far as notes. That’s what I love so much about maple ... It’s almost like the notes are ghosts , they are there for a second or two and then they disappear. With Rosewood getting harder to source I believe the majority of guitars in the future will be maple and I love that ... It doesn’t get too much respect among rosewood lovers but I am glad you can appreciate the qualiy of a fine maple or two. Play your guitars in good health! btw even Neil Young who has been a staunch Martin man now plays a small body Gibson Century of Progress (maple back and sides) on some songs of his last few tours. I heard it was a gift from his gf /wife Darryl Hannah JC
  13. Sal, Your Country & Western is awesome !!! JC
  14. He talks about it at the 7 min 45 sec mark: JC
  15. The thing is this: Cesar one of the new faces at Gibson said that they were going to STOP putting the years on the back of the headstock as of January NAMM 2019 because they believed that the guitars from one year to the next should be of the same quality . Since your model has a 2018 serial number it has the 2019 still stamped into it. But no it’s not strange at all. The new Gibson management just made a conscious choice to STOP that (admittedly dumb) practice. That’s all. You can explain that to any buyer you may have ... in fact I may be able to find a video of Cesar talking about this exact topic. JC
