  1. Using them on my Southern Jumbo. Really dumb marketing, calling them "country music", but they're actually pretty good
  2. I've had DR Sunbeams bluegrass gauge on my Southern Jumbo and the gauge works great.
  3. I've never looked on the inside of any of my guitars to check the glue marks. Maybe I should I guess, I just never saw a reason to if I was happy with the sound
  4. Congratulations! I love my Southern Jumbo
  5. I have Nick Lucas Maple L 100, fantastic guitar
  6. It was a regular Southern Jumbo vs a regular J45. I asked the person at the store if I was hearing it right and he said yes and I have trusted his opinion throughout the years.
  7. I swear when I compared the J45 to the Southern Jumbo in the store before buying the SJ- the sound was different. The SJ was a little more articulate, I've seen reviews by others saying the same thing.
  8. I have a Martin HD 28 VTS (aged top), and a Southern Jumbo, a Guild Maple Jumbo, and a Gibson Nick Lucas Maple. I also am trying to learn blues fingerpicking. Of all the pairs, the Martin and the Southern Jumbo are the most similar (they are different though, don't get me wrong), but if you want something with a really different sound I'd consider a Maple Gibson like a j 200 or a dove.
  9. I haven't tried these yet, in COVID I went a little nuts and got a lot of strings, but the Sunbeams sound great on my Southern Jumbo
  10. Can I ask what about the 185 suffers in comparison to your other guitars?
  11. I think it's really cool for you to do this
  12. I almost bought the Taylor 614ce at the local shop. Wanted a Maple, bonus money burning a hole in my pocket but something was holding me back, as nice as the guitar was. Then saw the Nick Lucas L 100 Maple on sale over at AGF and couldn't plunk my money down fast enough enough, don't regret the choice at all, but the Taylor was just "nice", I'm still learning the Lucas- it has a really unusual depth and tone
  13. Thanks! I have a Southern Jumbo, maybe it will go on next
  14. When they were discontinuing these I bought some packs, just because. Do people like them, dislike them, what Gibsons or types are they good for besides a J200? I have a Guild Maple Jumbo they'd probably be good for, any other suggestions?
  15. I almost bought a Taylor 614ce, was dithering about the price, etc., It had a really warm sound, but it was also articulate- like Maple is. But I had trouble justifying buying another dread then Nick Lucas Maple L100 was for sale on the AGF forum at a HUGE discount just because of a finish issue on the side that no one could see due to someone leaving some humidipack in the case next to the guitar. I jumped on it and don't regret it at all, but that Taylor was also really nice
