  1. I clearly did read what was wrote....again pictures worth a thousand words, I slam Gibson when needed, like the tv j45 I had with laminated parts on it.....it was unacceptable and should have never left the factory. And was personally attacked by Gibson fan boys for it. or the next high end vintage j45 I owned with wolf tones on the g note, all of them, it was sent back, but should have been destroyed, not sold for around 5k... I understand the OP not being around to comment, and attacking him, is lame. Shame on all you doing this.... furthermore the lame excuse of hide glue, makes me think someone’s grasping at straws to defend Gibson at all cost, even above that that I know to be true, as a person who has worked with hide glue, and not just gluing wood together with it, but large tolex sheets. it is what it is, and I know personally that Gibson makes huge mistakes, and passes them right on off to customers, it happens. And if you owned enough Gibson's or even played many, you know this to be true. I play racks of them when looking. It’s the best way to find a stellar example. I also know when a j45 is on, or a les Pual, or any Gibson nothing will touch it. Also fine examples are not every guitar that has a Gibson label in it, some are horrible, some are stellar. this is reality people. No need in trying to tell me otherwise, it’s delusional, and that is MY end of that conversation! but attacking the op is pure, fanboy. and does nothing to hold Gibson , one accountable for mistakes like what is shown here, or others I have seen, or owned, or neck reset issues I have seen.... It happens...... It does show a very odd brand loyalty. What motivates one to act that way? retorical ! exactly why I rarely visit this forum.
  2. I think the point of this is this is unacceptable!!! Not buying hide glue is hard to work with, it a heck of a lot easier to clean up than anything else. Hide glue pulls wood together as it dries, unlike white glue. my very first attempt at building a guitar cab with it. And tolexing the cab with it. was my best work ever, because of how hide glue works. It’s nothing complex. this a a custom shop? it’s unacceptable is what it is, at 5k , it should look, and sound stellar, or never leave the “custom shop “. regardless if it’s gibson or any custom shop. And at that price, this is unacceptable. if you support brand loyalty off the edge of a cliff. I will never follow you... few will...
  3. in currently available guitars. Is the Gibson Historic 1936 J-35 the largest most baseball, neck of the historic’s? anyone have one? I like 50s les Pual necks, and the srv fender necks...I can not lie, I like big necks.
  4. Tuning issues are usaly in the nut, making the issue worse still is the nylon nut, even with great nut files, That stuff is hard to work with, but once it is, your all set. Hope the tech was paid well, these nuts take a lot more time to get right.
  5. I got the same ...and same color, IOHO, Gibson built what I wanted, solid body, hand wired, 50s neck, love it, and I am sure your loving your as well my friend.
  6. I was pretty confused when I started looking at les puals, so many models now, hard find a old school layout, other than custom shop. the names do not help much, IMHO. Things have changed so much, a standard is not the standard of the past, that's for sure. The traditional T of 2017 anyway is to me more a standard of the past, no circuit board wiring, big turn off... solid mahogany body, 50s neck....WOOT! no g force tuner plastic thingy, nickel hardware. things I did not care for on the Standard T are , weight relived body, just don't like em, my traditional T is 8 pounds 8 oz, and is solid. chrome hardware, yuk, chrome ufo looking knobs, super yuk, circuit board wiring, 60s slim taper neck, like the larger 50s neck, I have been looking for a new les pual for 3 years, the traditional t has what "I anyway" was looking for. I have 2 Ibanez 540R for the whole HP type thing. glad Gibson has something like this in the line up, and they make a sale because they did. only issue I have with the 2017 traditional T model, should have thrown in the poker chip with the pick guard, I think people buying this model, will be the pick guard/poker chip dressed les pual kind of folks. at least I am, as are the people I jam with.
  7. well she got sent back, sadly the worst wolf tones I have ever experienced, the guitar had everything going for it, the build, the woods, but from 2-3k, a loud and swelling ring that did not relate the fundamental, the tone also warbled, I could see this in pro tools, with isotope insight, on a waterfall plot, never seen anything like it, also the f cord regardless where it was played, just vanished from the mix. kind of sad, to see such a great guitar and great woods, sound so bad.
  8. Things I am very happy about, build is very very nice, a few things that my now sold j45tv irked me are now gone, pick guard placement being one is perfect on the V, my tv had a very yellow burst, I like the more orange ish hues of the V, some do not like the darker look, I love it. The top wood is interesting very tight grain at the seam, then it opens up a bit in the middle and under the black tightens up again. A few areas show claw. It's a better peice of wood than my old tv, The back and sides are flawless, very consistent, the fretboard and bridge, are solid one piece, and do not have that strange orange tint my tv had, build wise I am thrilled so far, not one issue. Sound wise, sounds like a j45, for sure, but need some more time on it before I comment.
  9. Well sure is pretty, build sure nailed it, much better than my j45tv. I hated the pickguard placement on the tv, and a few other issues,so the tv was sold, like the darker burst much more, and one peice of wood for the fretboard and bridge. I'll have to give it a week or so to report on sound. So far sounds just like well a j45....lol.
  10. TLM-103 more than likely, yet may not be the only one, its position is wrong for a single mic, could be one of an xy set. could be room mikes as well....who knows. then there is mic pres, what kind of a to d converters, and the clock, it all adds up, killer clean is about the hardest to get right, and will show any weak point in the chain. IMHO.
  11. I find the first track fitting the song in unprocessed Johnson way. The second sounds a lot more modern sounding. Imho, track one nailed it. In vibe and tone. Both are great, just like the first one best.
  12. A classical guitar trick is using ping pong balls and super glue, you can shape em however you like.
  13. It (they) is (are). hope so.....find out today.
  14. Here some cliff notes. under an electron microscope,spruce thermo wood cells look like 17th century wood cells, they are open, in new wood the cells are closed. The wood takes on less moisture, is more stable, is stiffer, resins crystalize, has a faster sound velocity, also weight reduces. just like aging wood does over 50-60 years. it can be overdone, and if so breaks the cells. and with a wood plane is easy to spot. all of this in pretty huge for an acoustic, even more so for a classical, with less sting tension to make sound, on the projection side anyway. but the biggest part to me is its stable, even in thin pieces and over time. glad to see Gibson giving it a shot, I just may pick up a J45V and see if its a keeper.

  16. did you watch the whole thing? he spoke of 17th century violins, flutes, basses not on word electric guitar ? regardless, the science shown I find very interesting. to each his own.
  17. ohhh just wait till you mic one up, and have a great mic, and mic pre.....a dab of compression, a bit of eq, it will have a man selling his own kids, wife and house........ I was hoping they would not approve a payment plan, no such luck.....I have a problem.
  18. Well the vintage looks good, and the fret board is one piece, hummm may have to go take a look.
  19. I so wish I had more time at home to play and record, may have to make some career changes..lol One the the best reads I have found on recording acoustic . http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/apr10/articles/acguitar.htm
  20. I had a 65 , in a killer sunburst, fit and finish we're just outstanding, sadly as much as I liked the way it was built and how it looked its tone just did not do it for me , every now and then I hear or play a strat that does the bell like tone thing, or the telly quack to a tee. And sometimes it's a low end fender , sometimes high end , My 65 was just crazy bright to me , had no bell tone at all,I could get better blues tones from my old Ibanez in its single coil positions. More chime and vibe, I wanted to love this guitar it so looked the part, but in the end, it was sold off to fund other things.
  21. To the op Cling on pick guards used for classicals may be a good idea, and leave no residue. Here is a non vinyl one. http://oasishumidifiers.com/guard.html
  22. I could see a ren Inspired Guild G37-SB reissue, or a hank iii tribute guitar , One of the loudest things I ever played.
  23. All I can say is.... Now I just gonna laugh .....
