  1. As Brad mentioned https://www.allparts.com/products/pc-0739-p-90-pickup-cover-set-with-ears
  2. Here's the one I had. Solid carved Spruce top, even the braces were part of the carve, maple back and sides. Still had the Lifton case in great condition. It looks like they used great material but the workmanship was not always the greatest. I doubt if you can find one without a loose neck. The dovetails joints were very loose, they relied on the glue. It was great sounding guitar. I was going to have the neck joint rebuilt and rest and steam press the neck straight. I loved the look and sound. If you ever look for one, check out the neck joint and neck bow. No truss rods.
  3. I took it to my Luthier to get a couple things fixed. He fell in love with it and talked me out of it. He added a pu and uses it for gigging. It was a closet queen, looked brand new.
  4. I have turned the individual saddles around to move the range. I don't know if this helps the direction you're needing to move.
  5. Bob said he was hooked on the F-chord for this album. Personally, I have not listened to the album but I'm imagining all the songs have an F-chord? Most of the tablatures I see include the F-chord
  6. I'm in agreement with all the comments. Although age-wise it may be vintage, but not as a collectible vintage. Regardless if the '2' is a non issues at this stage of its life, it does affect value. Personally I would value it between 800-1000 then subtract any needed repairs. The neck and crack repairs could get up into the 500-600 range, then when you're done you still have an $800 guitar. If it talks to you go for it, but I would suggest trying out other options as suggested. If you want to stay in the 800-1000 range a used J15. The 1000-1400 range a J45. Other brands that are vintage guitars such a Harmony can be had fairly reasonably. I picked up a Kalamazoo for $250. A Harmony Cremona for $350. Some of our members are really big into the older other brands. As with anything, do your homework, analyze the condition in relationship to it's value and repair cost and listen to your ears. Just on what you showed us, I would pass on this one unless I could get it for $400. Have fun with the search! Dave
  7. Sounds like you’re headed toward Dylan’s Nashville Skyline.
  8. I believe the last one recently passed away. Not for sure.
  9. Medley - finger pickin' style - Waylon Jennings 'Just To Satisfy You' / Stones 'Satisfaction' on a '42 LG1
  10. Not sure but it looks like a Gibson Chet Atkins SST You're 3rd photo shows it's a Chet model. Here's one on EBay https://www.ebay.com/i/163771284896?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=163771284896&targetid=541454087172&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1017751&poi=&campaignid=1881946470&mkgroupid=74094014870&rlsatarget=pla-541454087172&abcId=1139336&merchantid=8354074&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwq-Dq5-44wIVgp6fCh0NrwSTEAQYDiABEgKC7_D_BwE
  11. You know how in sports they have a couple good old songs that play as someone exits like 'Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye' or 'Another One Bites The Dust'. I think we need our own. Any suggestions? 'Hate To See You Go' (Stones) 'Thank God And Greyhound You're Gone' (Roy Clark)
  12. I don’t know if it’s still true but at one time that was top seller in the world
  13. Varies a lot. The first few years the Legend was supposed to be a close replica of Eldon's guitar all the way down to the saw marks on the braces. It was ink marked on the neck block using today's numbering system. The trim was dyed to look aged. VOS finished. Aged buttons. Then Gibson came out with the shiny, bright trimmed, orange labeled "1942 J-45 Legend" with the custom shop decal which does not look the same. that was originally built for the Japanese market. The older ones were selling new around $6K when they came out. Most used ones are in the 3500-5000 range with some exceptions. I'm not sure on the newer ones.
