  1. Thanks everyone! I realized I hadn't posted here in awhile and I always LOVE demo videos. I backed into finding this guitar and I think it was meant to be. She's got that Honk for sure and overtime I play a show and bring it out there are a couple of gasps. ha....street cred!
  2. Well I've still lurked here but have not suffered from any MAS since acquiring my guitar a few years back. Sounds better every day. I did this for the Tiny Desk contest and will give a good idea of the sound. Its a little out of tune and needs a setup but still sounds great. This Northeast weather is a ***** on guitars https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2ak-vxoJk0
  3. Hey everyone. Been a long time since posting but I still read all the time and there is so much great info on here I am always blow away.....oh yeah and the pics of great Gibson's does not hurt either! We just finished another album and wanted to direct people where to stream it if they are interested in hearing it. Any acoustic tones are from my 1951 Gibson Southern Jumbo properly mic'd up. You can really hear it most on Waking me Up, Songs in the war, The Rest of Me and Broken Home. Here is the link and you can stream it for free here or at Spotify. Enjoy!!! www.americanthrea
  4. Hey everyone! Still lurking here on the regular but no purchases on the horizon as I am as happy with my 1951 Southern Jumbo as possible. Recording a new album though and although it wont be out for some months, this rough cut best captures this awesome Gibson sound. Enjoy!
  5. We've been playing with a Sessiun band a lot lately. This was from a practice the other night but I think the fiddle hits nicely with the Gibson!
  6. I'm digging hard on Frightened Rabbit "Pedestrian Verse". Haven't felt that way in a long time....Josh Ritter's The animal Years did that to me as well
  7. Going to see Jason Isbell tonight in Boston....in honor I worked up this cover off his new album. Love this song!
  8. Thanks for the feedback. Here's the thing with her...A)Never selling unless a real desperate situation came up and B)She's the best playing/sounding acoustic I have ever had my hands on. Second was the 50's J45 of my high school girlfriend's Dad and this one SLAYS that J45.
  9. The guy I traded it too had been holding it for a long time and I don't think had looked into it too much. He said he thought it was mid 50's and it turns out its a 51. I traded an 8 month old bought new J45 plus $300 cash
  10. So last Fall I got my hands on a Jumbo in a trade. Its a player for sure and shows its age. She's got a brown hue rather than the black burst and other than that is in great shape. I seems like maybe a LONG time ago someone stripped it and refinished it but it would have been a long time ago as wood wear near the sound hole is from years of playing so my only reason to believe it was refinished is that it doesn't have that crackled nitro look to it? I dunno...here is pic here and any input for a broad range on the price would be nice. I'm not looking to sell but I have no idea and someone

  15. Hope everyone is well here. I've been lurking as always but as I am completely in love with my 1951 Gibson Southern Jumbo I just haven't had any GAS or much to add. Our album just got a great review though from one of the best Americana Blogs out there so I thought I would share it. http://ninebullets.net/archives/american-thread-killing-days Also you can get the album on Spotify or ITunes now if anyone wants to give a listen. Thanks!
