  1. I like how you put a photo first, I thought Larson when I saw it. That's a real custom, and looks cool
  2. That's different than what I see on my tv. To see what mine looks like I used an inspection light and look at a 45% angle at the bridge were it meets the top, and only saw grain lines, that look a bit like the zipper effect you mention. It may still be the finish being thicker between grain lines on yours. You did say it's on the ends also so may be not. I see yours didn't come with the pick guard attached, did the seller include it. Gibson provided them lose so the owners could place them at there preference. A 45 dose not look right right to me with out one. and down the pick guard rabb
  3. Bluezguy I looked at my tv and I think I see what your describing. I also looked at my Epi , and didn't see it there. Gibson and Epiphones have different finishes, Gibson= Nitro Epi= Poly . Nitro being a thinner finish, I believe it's grain lines you see at the bridge. Look at the tv and notice how the grain on the top shows thru more on the tv than the Epi I would like to see photos of yours, not just the bridge but the whole guitar thanks
  4. On my tv 2011 there is a stamp on the bridge plate it says AJ, I think it's for advanced jumbo type bracing. There are other 45s made in the same time period that have almost identical features to the tvs, but have standard bracing. I think you can tell by the distance the X brace is to sound hole
  5. I was trying to find a Gibson catalog for my 2011 45tv today, I had no luck with my searches ether. I think the early true vintage models 45 and SJ had Sitka tops
  6. Tascosa Look at my post from 3-28 yesterday Educating your self is always best, this form and others are good ways to do this. It takes time. And you will learn which advice is good We also don,t know how you want to use the guitar. as in are you a singer and accompany your self, also how long have you been playing
  7. Those MMV that I saw in GC used to fool me, thinking they were D28 They are nice guitars, have you had yours set up by some one who knows what there doing. Play ability may be to your liking after a good set up. Save your penny's and try the standards and above models of Gibson and other builders
  8. It's a Martin MMV made for guitar center
  9. Nice thread revival That was nice jt
  10. ON and ON and ON he goes With little useful content
  11. I find my calluses get to aggressive with string lines in them like yours. When changing chords or notes they make the string ring out, and hang up on the strings. I use a hand lotion on them at night I don't like groves Yes it is worth it
  12. tc electronic unitune Get it and forget it, your good to go
  13. Looking at the photos it looks like the bridge holes or pins aren't aligned. And the saddle looks thick
  14. ZW thanks for that post, I went straight to ytube to listen to that version. I had heard it before, I didn't know David Bromberg was with him. That's the gold standard, anything David Bromberg is involved with usually is. Thanks Jerry Jeff for all the songs. I've sung the hell out of them
  15. That's a beauty, the dark grain lines accent the burst. Perfect
