  1. Pix of my 93 J100! Thanks 62burst for the tutorial! If you missed the cool story, scroll down to see my NGD post!
  2. Hey, zombywoof. It's a 93, but you're right, it's not a Centennial version. It just has the banner headstock, which I confused with the Centennials. Great great guitar!
  3. Since you guys were in on the search I thought you should be some of the first to hear... I found my j100! It's a '93 Centennial Edition in Tobacco Burst! (I have pix... Can someone tell me how to include them?) We've all heard the used car story that goes something like this: "It was driven on overcast Sundays only (to church of course) by a 90 year old grandmother!" This is the guitar version of that story, except the 90 year old lady never got the car out of the garage! The older fella I bought it from bought it in 1994, put it in the closet and never learned to play! Since 1994 he has taken the guitar out three times, each time taking it down to the guitar shop and having them change the strings, only to return back to the closet, never finding the time to even learn. He even has two grandsons, who he tried to give the guitar to and they weren't interested. So I now have this 1993 unplayed J100! It gets even better than this. His dad bought him a brand new ES225 T in 1958 for $200. You guessed it...it's been in the closet since 1958 never played. I'm not an electric guy, nor did I have the $4,700 he was asking for it! My guess is he would take quite a bit less and it is undoubtedly worth every penny and then some. I will say I had followed the advice of many of you and extended my search to include Hummingbirds as well. I was also determined to only buy what I could put my hands on and play first (I drove almost 4 hours to play this one)... And I must say this one plays like a dream! The downside is that it has not benefited from 25 + years of being played and broken in. The upside is I get to do all the breaking in myself!
  4. Hey, Jinder... You guys are educating me well. I do like those '41 recreations. You have an older hummingbird, too, right? How do you like it?
  5. After talking to a few of the members (thank you!) I've extended the date range in which my j100 could be born! I am looking for a j100 anywhere from 1989 to the early 2000s. I definitely want the burst and am pretty sure I want hog over maple. I strum 90% of the time and it will be my only guitar. I'll lead worship occasionally in a small group with 15ish people singing along and no amplification... So it needs to be loud! I've had a j100 before and I loved it, so that's what I think I'm going with. You know you know a guy!
  6. Are they gonna excommunicate you for lauding the Guild? Ha! It's beautiful! . Don't get me wrong...I don't want a guitar in cruddy condition. I know what I'm looking for is hard-ish to find but I've seen a ton that I passed on in the past, so I know they're out there. Like I said, early 3000s will work too.
  7. I've just always enjoyed the guitars I've had that were 15ish years old or older. I like the broken in sound and look. I buy most of my clothes from a thrift store so it might be a personality defect!
  8. I would consider an early 2000s but prefer 89s or 90s. I do want a burst. Fuller is no longer a Gibby dealer, but they have a couple used. No Super Jumbos though.
  9. That's perfect! I'm in Texas, too!
  10. Second time I've duplicated a post. I don't know how I did it and don't know how to delete one.
  11. I'm looking for an older (at least 10 years old, but preferably 80s/90s) without cracks. I would greatly prefer a burst finish. Thanks!
  12. This may sound silly, but I've always wanted a 'bird, but I have always hated neck binding on a guitar. Is there are year or model Hummingbird (not studio or pro) that does not have the neck binding?

  14. Would the neck on a 93 j45 be thicker than a new one? It's a standard model.
