  1. Have you tried any of the newer ones? Next time you’re traveling through KY stop by and play my Stage Deluxe Ltd (hog), Stage Deluxe RW and the Jackson Browne (walnut). Didn’t you have a JB a while back?
  2. Just a notch example. That's a notched straight edge. https://www.stewmac.com/Luthier_Tools/Types_of_Tools/Straightedges/Precision_Notched_Straightedge.html
  3. One of days when I have nothing better to do I'm going to notch a saddle and see how it affects the sound if any.
  4. This sounds like a perfect application for a rain song guitar
  5. I didn’t think about the heat. Good call. I have a few of the Humiditraks in some of my cases. They work very nicely.
  6. I’ve pulled a few saddles from piezo strips and most of them had a slight knife edge to ensure contact, not the perfectly flat, square, perpendicular edge I see on most acoustics.
  7. Being exposed to varying conditions, your humidipaks may only last a few months but in my opinion they’re well worth it. You can buy them in bulk packages. I would not be polishing it that often. Just wipe it off after using it. I sometimes polish my guitars every few years. Normal areas to wipe down are the strings, fretboard and where your forearm rests. If the case is going to get shook up a lot, I would pack some extra cotton cloth beneath the headstock for extra support. Enjoy it and welcome to forum.
  8. Just a quick search. I would not put too much into the guitar. It's beyond restoring value-wise and has no sentimental value. JMHO But it's still cool looking. Better have it checked out structurally before soaking any money into it. https://www.ebay.com/i/264394825910?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=264394825910&targetid=596465734708&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9014400&poi=&campaignid=1689407483&mkgroupid=74365778108&rlsatarget=aud-622524040958:pla-596465734708&abcId=1140476&merchantid=8442154&gclid=CjwKCAjw-7LrBRB6EiwAhh1yX_prriUHDkcEbnY4HrAfn_LXQcs0r8Vmef0DCISQ74cYHUrEwvnQSRoCgi8QAvD_BwE https://www.gibson.com/Gear/Tuning/PMMH-050
  9. Don’t attach pictures. Copy their url link and paste it in your comments.
  10. I really like the look of the back walnut with the blonde center. Looks like a custom. Here's some monkeypod with a similar pattern on a ukulele And not as noticeable, some koa
  11. I don’t know but most of the Yamaha’s I’ve seen have nice spruce tops. That’s what they’re known for. From the shape of the headstock I would guess it’s a very low quality Chinese knockoff of a Martin. Washburn makes a D100 There is a brand called Rotus that makes a D100. This could be an older one of them. A better pic of the headstock may help. This may be one of those guitars branded under a dozen different names.
  12. Agree with Jim. It'd be a good one to put back to electric . I like it. Here's your photos uploaded. Right click your photo and copy the direct link and paste it in your post.
  13. you should post this in the Acoustic Forum
  14. Here's my '42 LG1 X-braced
  15. Thanks! Good to know. That's my birth year. May come in handy if I get an itch to have one. Did they do it for tone such as the earlier Gibsons with the extra tone bar or was it for structural reasons?
  16. I thought the double X was a ‘70’s thing?
  17. It’s pretty brittle. I’ve already accidentally pushed my finger through it. Bought it for the hardware. I’ll throw some non vintage hardware on it to finish out it’s life. Don’t know if I’ll sell it.
  18. My favorite SG color and setup. I'm envious.
  19. I like the picture of the back of the headstock. Looks like every style tuner has been on it at one time or another. I personally would not go much more than it's current bid. Too much unknown. Maybe loose bracing with the loose binding. It should rattle pretty good. Removing the frets and cleaning off the fretboard would be the only way I would take off that lacquer.
  20. I’ve got some old hardware from a Kalamazoo that would look good on it.
