  1. Another on AGF now. Same tuners... https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=592267
  2. Welcome to the forum... I think the songwriter is long scale for what its worth... vs short scale for many other of the acoustics. I have a J-45TV and a J-45 Studio, which as mentioned has a slimmer body front to back. It is the first one I pick up - because it is so comfortable. I really love mine and can't wait to start gigging with it again... And depending on the music you play, there are a couple of smaller bodies you should look at... the LG-2 shape (more generalized sound - strumming and finger-picking and finger style) and the L-00 shape (dry blues)
  3. In addition to the one mentioned, there is the Planet Waves Cinch Fit https://www.stewmac.com/parts-and-hardware/strap-buttons/daddario-planet-waves-cinchfit-acoustic-jack-lock.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=shopping&utm_campaign=2020-09-gp Also... Sully Straps can make you an amazing strap, which fits perfect on pickup ends... I have two and they are awesome. https://sullysstraps.com/
  4. Thanks guys and have a great evening
  5. Hey guys. I did this song this morning... I am using my Gibson J45- Studio... which has walnut back and sides. It’s also tuned down half a step. Hope you like it. You may hear a second track with some fills... that’s my Martin D15.
  6. Thanks guys. I cant even see a path to the clubs. My buddy started up again. I cant. too many compromised in my house. im really losing it too.
  7. Yeah... circling back. My guess is that guitar had been at that GC for a while, and not properly taken care of. buzzing... not humidified... maybe the neck warped from being in a prolonged state of neglect, if that is in fact the case. Yeah - see about a swap in person, so you can play the replacement
  8. I would never trust a big box setup. Three things combine to make up a good set up.... A proper neck angle (adjusted with the truss rod), a proper saddle height (maybe the bottom needs shaving), and proper nut slot heights. The Guitar Center guys think they can do it all with the truss rod. I bet your neck has a weird angle. That neck needs to get set to minimal relied - or close to flat... then move on to the saddle. If they shaved it too much, if at all, there is a chance a new saddle might have to be cut. But none of that should be done until the guitar has been humidified properly for a week. In essence the right setup will make your guitar PLAY COMFORTABLY and solve most intonation issues. The tone? That is subjective.... Cant help you there. I can say I have a J-45 Studio which is walnut back and sides and I love its tone.
  9. hey guys thanks for listening... Gord is tops my personal "me playlist". So many of his songs resonate here. "Beautiful" is one of the prettiest love songs I have ever heard. It's perfect.
  10. Rainy and cool here in NJ... stark contrast to the last 3 weeks...
  11. Good luck Mr. Paul; I can only imagine how it sounds...
  12. I owned an AJ; a great guitar to be sure. But it is louder than a J-45, and more nasally loud more specifically. A unique tone. A great fingerpicker. A great flatpicker. Not so great a strummer. Not for everyone; but certainly good enough for Mark Knopfler.
  13. Roger, yes he does. I actually played it for a few songs in the last gig we did in early March.
  14. Excellent eye EM with regard to the monel strings. I'll ask him about the guitar... I was going to say it might be a True Vintage model with some advanced wearing, but I cant see inside the soundhole. It could very well be a 50s J45 or so? I'll be back.
