  1. I have a Martin HD 28 VTS- Torrefied top. It's a wonderful guitar, not too boomy like a lot of HD 28s, but more depth than a D 28,
  2. Listening to the Stones acoustic stuff on Exile, Sticky Fingers, Let it Bleed and loving the sound of Keith's Hummingbird. Strangely enough I don't have a Hummingbird I have a Southern Jumbo but that's what got me started.
  3. Has anyone ever owned one or played one? It looks cool, really expensive though
  4. Sounds amazing in the video, I thought my GAS was cured but that sounds really nice
  5. So, since it seems that Gibson was discontinuing their strings for some new version I went on Amazon to get the masterbuilt but also ordered the Gibson J200 phosphor bronze light and mediums for the heck of it. Do people like them? I know they're for the j200 but I have a Southern Jumbo and a Guild JF 30 Maple
  6. For what it's worth I just ordered the former Gibson j200 strings on Amazon, one medium and one light, for my Guild JF30 Maple
  7. Saw this on the AGF and it got me thinking what the pros here would say for those who have all different models and why. I've only had two, a J45 custom rosewood and a Southern Jumbo and while I like them both the Southern Jumbo is my favorite and after a year or two seems to have broken in a little. It's fundamental and dry without being brittle and it's resonant enough without too much sustain. Just a great guitar, but anyway I'd love to hear everyone's opinion.
  8. When I heard they were discontinuing the strings I went on Amazon and bought a bunch
  9. My newest guitar is a Guild 1993 JF 30 that's fantastic. However it made me also appreciate the differences of the Southern Jumbo
  10. 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
  11. I know you said square but I put them on my Southern Jumbo and they sounded great
  12. Thanks everyone. I'm taking it in and will see what they say at Dusty Strings.
  13. 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?
  14. Southern Jumbo? I know they don't seem as popular as the others but the older versions seem to be amazing iconic models
  15. I just ordered two PBS and two 80/20 on Amazon
  16. That's distressing to hear, that's what I put on!
  17. 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.
  18. I played a J 45 walnut one time and it sounded awesome, great clarity and punch, not muted at all.
  19. I have a Westerly JF 30- bought it used. I love that guitar
  20. 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
  21. It's such a contrast to my Southern Jumbo I'm appreciating that more too
  22. So what's the difference in sound between the two maples?
