  1. Sorry, all set now. have a case of user error. thanks for the replies.
  2. I'm a singer/songwriter who has a J-45 that I love. I'm looking at adding another Gibson to the barn and wanted to get your opinion as to what model I should consider. I'd like to stay short scale if possible and would like to sound be a nice "different" sounding compliment to my J-45. Maybe something that could handle finger picking a little better. I'm not set on any particular wood combo, just something with a different sound than the J-45. thanks in advance.
  3. I've got a bead on a used 2007 Gibson Sheryl Crow. The seller says the nut width is 1 11/16 (1.68). The Gibson website says the Crow model is the standard Gibson 1 23/32 (1.72). Did Gibson change the size of the nut width on this model over the years? And if so, when? I've asked the seller to remeasure and verify the nut width. I guess I can call Gibson and ask. tx in advance.
  4. Can someone please let me know if the vintage tuners Gibson sells on their website will fit the J-45 Standard? I'd rather just use the holes already made vs. adding new ones. If not, where could I find vintage-style tuners that would work. tx in advance.
  5. I'm thinking that perhaps I just cant figure this out. I'm on my second brand new J-185 where the electronics won't work--or I can't get sound to come out of the amp. Everything is plugged in correctly, volume is turned up, etc.--it just won't work. I sent the first J-185 back a week or so ago b/c the electronics didn't work. Plugged the new one in for the first time this evening and low and behold----the same thing. I find it hard to believe that there could be something wrong with both guitars---or am I just not doing something right? Any help would be appreciated. tx
  6. I ran across a used 2006 custom B-25 but can't find much info on it. Any of you folks familiar with that model that could lend some insight? I'm looking for something short scale with 1.75 nut width. Tx in advance.
  7. If you could choose any two short-scale Gibson acoustics out of the current lineup of products offered what two would you choose? The parameters include pairing two that would be versatile in playing different styles (stumming, fingerstyle, flatpicking, etc.) and together would encompass the wide-range of different Gibson sound. In other words, if you were just starting to collect short-scale Gibson acoustics--what two would you start with??
  8. That sounds great. Who did you order through if you don't mind me asking?
  9. Hey gang, To say I'm totally confused by how Gibson classifies their acoustics would be a gross understatement. I've run across a few used models that I'm considering for purchase. Can someone please explain to me what the difference is b/w the Historic Collection models and the True Vintage models? tx!
  10. I apologize for all the questions, but this group is a wealth of info. I've run across a used 2005 Historic J-45 in pretty good shape at a decent price (1750). How does the historic model compare to today's standard and TV model? tx SG
  11. Yikes....Choc Lab here. I've narrowed down my choice to a J-45 or a J-185. Both models are right around the same price and in my budget. Thanks for all the kind advice. Was also thinking about a EF-500 R or M as a couch/outside/porch guitar. Not too expensive, solid wood and 1.75 nut. What do you guys think of that model? I'd love to play one, but my local store only stocks masterbilt dreads. tx SG
  12. Thanks gang, Still debating, but your insight is very helpful. Who knew I would also be introduced to numerous pugs along with receiving great advice on guitars!!!!
  13. Southern Jumbo and J-45--same body style? Also, other than the rounded shoulders how would that body type differ from the songwriter?
  14. Thanks guys. No love for the Jumbos? My decision was between a J-45 custom and the SWD Standard. I went with the Standard.
