  1. My newest guitar is a Guild 1993 JF 30 that's fantastic. However it made me also appreciate the differences of the Southern Jumbo
  2. Doc Watson Stefan Grossman Mick Taylor- his solos with the Stones are just so simple and lyrical, I think he was just the bad while he was with the Stones
  3. I know you said square but I put them on my Southern Jumbo and they sounded great
  4. Thanks everyone. I'm taking it in and will see what they say at Dusty Strings.
  5. Hi all, just starting noticing that the southern Jumbo doesn't stay in tune as I play up the neck. In other words, the open B string is in tune but as I play say a D chord and it sounds off so when I played a D on the b string it was sharp. My other guitars don't do this is there a common diagnosis/fix for this?
  6. Southern Jumbo? I know they don't seem as popular as the others but the older versions seem to be amazing iconic models
  7. I just ordered two PBS and two 80/20 on Amazon
  8. That's distressing to hear, that's what I put on!
  9. After going around the horn and trying and mostly loving the different strings on my Southern Jumbo I found the mediums currently on it too hard to do any blues fingerpicking I'm trying to learn, so I pulled out the package of Gibson strings they came with (lights) and they sounded fantastic.
  10. I played a J 45 walnut one time and it sounded awesome, great clarity and punch, not muted at all.
  11. I have a Westerly JF 30- bought it used. I love that guitar
  12. My guitars Southern Jumbo 2018 Martin HD 28 VTS (baked top) 2017 Guild JF 30 1992 I was learning bluegrass and now learning blues fingerpicking, trying to pick up some Etta Baker tunes from my teacher
  13. It's such a contrast to my Southern Jumbo I'm appreciating that more too
  14. So what's the difference in sound between the two maples?
  15. A couple of months ago I wandered into a guitar store in Seattle that had this 1992 Guild JF 30 Maple. I had been wanting a Maple and the Gibsons were pricey. Besides being dusty it was in great shape and is just a fantastic guitar, it's easy to play and sounds wonderful. I put John Pearse bluegrass on them.
  16. That store is about three miles from my house
  17. I have mediums on my newly acquired guild JF 30 Maple, southern Jumbo, and Martin HD 28 VTS and they sound great on all of them. I like lights too though.
  18. Why don't people use mediums anymore? Just asking
  19. It probably is for some people but it seems really easy to play for me. I'm strumming and finger picking blues stuff but truth be told so far it seems like a great all around guitar. I've tried some flatpicking and it sounds just as good. First Maple guitar too and I can tell the difference
  20. Hi all, just got a Guild JF-30 Maple from about 1993. Love this guitar, a great complement to my Southern Jumbo.
  21. This is not helping my lust for a Nick Lucas L100 Maple on sale somewhere
  22. Sound great on the Southern Jumbo. Actually I've tried the pyramids, Martin retros, and a few others and they all sound good (I just have a good guitar šŸ˜‰), but these may be the best. They strike the right balance it seems. I do like experimenting, any other suggestions?
  23. No!! The railing is not for the drunk or tall
