  1. The opportunity presented itself. I had one of his Radio Grande Smecks in cocobolo once—it was an amazing guitar, just not a great fit for me—neck was a little narrow for me. I settled on the ‘94 Gibson Centennial.
  2. My J-50 is for sale again. It is listed in Agf and umgf. This guitar is wonderful, but it needs to go to cover in part the Fairbanks Kal Gal SJ that is coming my way.
  3. I like them on my rosewoods, and still prefer ej’s on my mahogany Gibson’s. I have a Tony Rice set on my J-50 now and am looking forward to getting PB’s back on it.
  4. It was a Guild orpheum that was located across the street from the hotel I was vacationing at. A 12 fret hog slope. Really nice and still avail. I really wanted to fly home with it, but I had recently taken in 2 without releasing even one—-against my rules. i knew the j-50 would be the easiest of my herd to sell, but it took more than 24 hours to get the serious inquiries, and I left Florida without the orpheum. When I got home I played the j-50 and quickly changed my mind. Ive been on a guild kick.
  5. Thanks Sal! here’s a sound clip
  6. Selling my J-50 on UMGF. I’m a motivated seller! I may only be listing it for a few hours as I have a short window to buy something else. It is a good one! In really great shape... I keep this one in the case- it’s so pretty. I have a j-45 that is a beater and unsellable. So this is the one that has to go. thanks
  7. After my string change to my usual ej-19’s, I was finding the j-50 a little brighter than I wanted. I put on Monel Retro last night (mediums on bass strings and Lights on trebles). I highly recommend. Unfortunately, I don’t think they make a bluegrass set, so I had to buy a med and light set to get what I wanted. Very warm, but still quite loud sparkly enough.
  8. Mine was listed at $2500 plus shipping on reverb. I offered $2100 and it was accepted. Preowned, with some minor blems
  9. Very nice! What brand strings on the J-45?
  10. There’s a reasonably priced 2009 Gibson SJ-200 Standard Electric Cutaway on reverb.
  11. Really nice Sal! I have Ej-19’s on mine, and it likes them. I posted a sample on the J-50 ngd thread. My D-35 was sounding too bright and trebly with my usual ej’s and I put monel retros on, and they really warmed it up. If you’ve never tried them, maybe give it a shot.
  12. Some open tuning noodling here for a sample of the J-50.
