  1. The case candy is amazing, Lippman's men shop " Like Hell it's yours PUT IT BACK! "
  2. I wonder how long it will take for this 78 year old guitar to open up. The case is cool as can be.
  3. OH My, is all I could think when I first saw the post. Played Gulf Cost Highway, maybe she can feel the love
  4. What a voice, great pipes. This is an example of why singers like a 45
  5. For me there is something special about a Gibson Burst. Go for the 45
  6. Now tell us about the new one, doesn't look like a standard 45
  7. This is one of those times when I say how in - didn't know about this artist. Thanks
  8. This will be a good one to follow. You came to the right place, wait until some of the other members have a look. That looks like a treasure, and it being from your grandmother so sweet
  9. Some I've been working on and doing lately Crossing Muddy Waters John Haitt Watch it Fall Billy Strings Kind Woman Buffalo Springfield To Make You Feel my Love Bob Dylan Summers End John Prine
  10. Woke up this morning with this tune in my head. I don't do any tunes with a gospel feel to them. Have to give this one a try
  11. I'll second what Sal said.
  12. Simply one of the best, such a cool tone Ray Wylie gets. Watch the the low E vibrate, Dose he tune down to get that sound?
  13. Not about the tuners but in the link that Boyd put up, the pick guard came with the guitar lose not attached. See bottom photo
  14. I like how you put a photo first, I thought Larson when I saw it. That's a real custom, and looks cool
  15. 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 rabbit hole we go On a side, I see your location is gulf coast, it brought to mind the song Gulf Coast Highway by Nanci Griffith. Gave it a spin on my tv Hope it all works out for you
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. It's a Martin MMV made for guitar center
  22. Nice thread revival That was nice jt
  23. ON and ON and ON he goes With little useful content
  24. 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
  25. tc electronic unitune Get it and forget it, your good to go
