  1. To my eye the standard vintage sunburst leans a little more yellow towards the center and the Montana sunset burst leans a little more orange/red. But they are pretty close to the same. Here are a couple of examples I have. 2015 J-45 Custom with Vintage Sunburst 2015 Sheryl Crow SJ with Montana Sunset Burst
  2. A couple of people in this thread (Hall and FemmeParallell) expressed interest in picking up one of these guitars. For what it's worth, there was one listed for sale in the AGF classifieds today. The SCSJ's have some nice upgrades, like an Adi top and bracing, and Waverly tuners. This one's a 2015 Supreme version which has the Trance Amulet pickup and hide glue neck joint and bracing. No affiliation here, but it looks to be in great shape.
  3. In response to the OP's initial question.... Yes, it is a Dwight Yoakam artist model. Love Ray Wylie Hubbard by the way
  4. Some great videos in this thread. I'll add another classic from the 60's, pared down and played by the fire.
  5. That's a great comparison of a couple of really nice sounding guitars. My favorite was whichever was being played at that particular moment. This video should make anyone paying attention feel really good about what Gibson has been doing in recent years. The company may still have a few quirks, but they are building guitars that do the brand proud. Ian Meadows does a fantastic job producing these videos. I am not aware of anyone out there doing better online comparisons and reviews. Does anybody here know what the first song in that video is?
  6. That should be a great addition. Is it a 2014? I love the specs on that run.
  7. Looks like a GREAT guitar. Congratulations! I haven't heard of that exact model either, but here is a link to one on a Wildwood demo from a few years back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2nr9Uc43tw
  8. That should be a great guitar, JC. Good luck with the patiently waiting thing...
  9. Welcome and congrats on the new guitar. Strings I like and use most regularly on my guitars are Martin PB,'s, D'Addario EJ16's and Gibson Masterbuilt lights (until my stash runs out, as they are no longer being made). I have a small body non-Gibson that I use John Pearse 600L's on. But, as Sgt. Pepper said above, "try them all", until something resonates with you. There are a zillion choices out there and it is definitely a personal thing. Post some pic's of that new guitar.
  10. Thanks, JC. I enjoy Gibson's quirks. It makes them seem genuine and a little more hands on. And perhaps less corporate than other brands building automated clones that come off assembly lines by the tens of thousands.
  11. Thanks, Nick. I know you have a keen eye when it comes to guitars, so your comments are appreciated.
  12. Sure enough , Fred. We have the same headstock inlays. The 2015 run was 65 guitars. I wonder how many of them ended up with the pearl and crown logos? No way to know, I suppose. Not that it matters much anyway.
  13. Really nice, Lars. The firestripe pickguard is a nice touch. In true Gibson fashion when mine was built they ignored the specs and used the post war style logo and crown pearl headstock inlay instead of the gold script and banner like yours.
  14. Congrats, Huley. I think you made a great choice in going with the J-45 Vintage. I think you'll find it a great fit for what you are doing. Be sure to post some pics when it arrives.
