  1. Dove’s gone. Anyone here get it?
  2. For a comparison here’s some I measured a few years ago
  3. Like most of the previous comments , there’s room for all brands in my house. I have 9 Martins and 23 Gibson’s. I’ve never sold off a Martin. I’ve sold off many Gibson’s looking for a keeper. I feel the Gibson’s are more comfortable and offer more variety. When I played out, I preferred Taylor and Takamine. I’ve had a few of each but now I only have one Takamine. My all time favorite is my D41Special. It’s far from being the most valuable. First guitar my Mom got me was a little Kay in ‘62. I still have it and it would be the last to go. I do put sentimental over monetary value.
  4. Local FB Marketplace No affiliation, no interest https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2521903561236102/
  5. A couple Gibbys on local CL No affiliation, no interest https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/msg/d/bethel-gibson-dove-for-sale-or-trade/6989206077.html https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/msg/d/bethel-gibson-hummingbird-for-sale-or/6989220239.html
  6. nice looking, wish I knew enough to give an opinion
  7. I don’t know if they’re all the same but all of the newer TV’s I’ve seen have been rosewood. Gibson.com states RW too. I think the standard is maple.
  8. SJ200 Vintage. More variation than the square shouldered Dove. Just my opinion. Both are variations in tonewoods.
  9. As Dan side for the drop=in or through saddles. If you measure the string height at the 12th fret and figure how much you want to lower the action, twice that amount needs to be removed from the saddle. Since the 12th fret is in the center between the nut and saddle, any lowering at either end will lower the height at the 12th fret by half the amount. They sell tools to measure measure the height. They also sell tools to hold the saddle square to the sanding surface and accurately remove whatever amount you want.
  10. Could this be adapted? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Just-In-Case-Brown-Leather-Gibson-Style-Replacement-Guitar-Case-Handle-CP64/323861114296?epid=1500191713&hash=item4b67a06db8:g:ff8AAOSwFx5cEgtr
  11. Living in KY and considering myself a hillbilly I cannot comment on it.
  12. I like the small body L00 I like the L5 neck (it’s a special ‘D’ shape) I had a custom L00, no fret markers with an L5 shaped neck made. For me, it’s pretty darn close. If it had the Gibson sunburst, I think it would be there.
  13. These Waverly’s dropped right in
  14. You're very seldom if ever are going to be up on the 15th, I would just sand it down. Without a cutaway those upper frets are just there for looks. If you're close to me, I have a heavy duty aluminum block with the 12" radius about 20" long
  15. I've always been able to get 40% off list with a few 5 Star dealers. Harder to do with the big box stores unless you can get a manager that will deal with you. I've gotten more if the guitar has been setting around for over a year.
  16. I have a couple wrenches I've had to bench to fit but it's usually the tip of the bullet that causes the interference for me.
  17. A couple years ago a local animal rescue group put together a tribute concert for her birthday as a fund raiser. A couple friends of mine were in the band that was put together using some of the top local talent from various groups. Emmylou donated a few personal items for the auction including a dress and jacket she wore when she accepted some CMA awards. Very classy lady. The concert was excellent. If I remember, they did a few of her albums in order. I’ll try to link a few of the videos.
  18. I have a few with the same neck but I don't know what you would call it
  19. Really nice! I was impressed with the song, performance and presentation.
  20. I just bought a ‘94 Gospel. Definitely has a laminate back. A very pronounced curved back like the old ‘20’s guitars with no bracing.
  21. I just dumped Photobucket so all my old links are gone
  22. You know me too well 😉 Historically mine looks good. Here's Norman With his 1935. From the caption I'm assuming they started putting standard necks on some non Hawaiian models without the Smeck logo or NL inlays. Maybe Tom can shed some light.
