  1. My previous link got broke while I was doing some housekeeping Here's my '04 with my '66. Sorry for the Gretsch content (not really)
  2. I had a CEC and a SST. Nice guitars. I paid about $1000 each and sold them for about the same. That was a few years ago. The Price Guide book list the CE and CEC 1200-1600. The SST at 975-2000. The Country Gentleman 2100-2800. These are the standard models. This book is usually a little high. Reverb is a good source for seeing what they actually sold. If you look on EBay you will see prices all over the place but those are just sitting there because they’re overpriced. Especially the Japanese market.
  3. When you started this thread I thought I might want a gig bag for my Super 400. I contacted Pro Bag and heard back today. That was only a few business days. Here’s my quote. Leather Super 400 Guitar gig bag with square pocket $395.- Extra upper pocket $19.- Third Shoulder Strap $35.- Shipping $33.- Good Luck on your search.
  4. I like this Dove version I'm a big EP fan. I have the Martin D28EP with the leather cover.
  5. What's nice is you can try the rethreading which is only a 30-45 minute job and if it doesn't work you can plug it and do the replacement.
  6. I would think it depends on the neck. This Super 400 has a very thin neck in that area and it seems okay.
  7. I had this done to a older Gibson I have but it was broke off right at the washer. It was taken about 1/2" deeper.
  8. I usually take some lessons in a totally different music style. The challenge intrigues me and usually improves my skills in the other styles.
  9. This is the kind of stuff I learn by listening to Tom B. , John T. and Willi.
  10. 1942 LG1 and it’s reissue are x-braced. 1942 introduced three LG models 1/2/3. All x- braced. Different tone woods and finishes. They made about 100 of each. After that they only made the LG2 until after the war. When the LG1 was reintroduced it was ladder braced.
  11. It's that dark. A '42-'43 no FON J45 The one to the right is a Legend.
  12. I've got a players grade version of that LG1 and it blows me away. My current favorite Gibson. John's looks to be in great condition. I bought the RI that John is comparing. It's a real nice guitar but when I compare it to the vintage one it falls a little short. Here's a friend of mine doing a demo of the same reissue John used and my '42 LG1. Note that they're considered 1942 models since they were all built in 1942 but shipped over the next couple years.
  13. I’ve had guitars that did not need truss rod adjustments so the nut was loose and the rod had no tension. Hopefully this is your case and it just needs a little tweak.
  14. This forum has not been getting much attention lately which is a shame. I think it may be a good idea to add ukuleles, lap steels and maybe some other instruments such as stand up bass and hawaiian guitar (maybe dobro covers this)to the Mandolins, Banjos and Dobros list. Or keep the Mandolin/Banjo/Dobro as a Bluegrass section and have another one for instruments no longer being produced. I'll start it off with my 1928 uke. I know some of the members in the acoustic forum have some real nice vintage ones.
  15. It would probably do me good. I’ve got the catch down pat. I’m having problems with the release.
