  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Thanks Sal! here’s a sound clip
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Mine was listed at $2500 plus shipping on reverb. I offered $2100 and it was accepted. Preowned, with some minor blems
  7. Very nice! What brand strings on the J-45?
  8. There’s a reasonably priced 2009 Gibson SJ-200 Standard Electric Cutaway on reverb.
  9. 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.
  10. Some open tuning noodling here for a sample of the J-50.
  11. Nick, When I changed the strings on my ‘59 reissue J-50 yesterday, the nut slid a bit. It’s my first Bozeman guitar with an unglued nut. Same with your ‘50 J-50? It’s possible that the nut on mine was replaced by the original owner I guess.
  12. Yes, serial number is so close that it must be from same run. Mine was used, so the cost was way way less than the the current CME price. Though they have 2 I think at CME and they are getting to be in the new old stock range, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they are willing to bring that current $3100 price down a bit. It seems just like all the J-45 Vintage (with cooked tops) I’ve played, but a much rounder and thicker neck. Here’s the specs on the neck as compared to the J-45 Vintage that CME had: J50 LE ‘59 1st fret = .90 10th fret = 1.01 2019 J45 Vintage 1st fret = .88 10th fret = .95
