  1. I've got one, they are awesome. Really loud, huge base, really clear and woody.
  2. Not sure about the J35, But the 34 Jumbo has a huge neck. Great guitar.

    2020 J55

    Thanks for posting, sounds pretty similar the 34 jumbo, maybe a little warmer. The 34 sounds like it could be louder, it's a real cannon, although this guy wasn't playing super loud.

    So what affect on tone does the slightly longer scale length make? I don't want them to be the exact same sounding guitar.

    I have the 34 Jumbo and it's awesome.

    2020 J55

    Nobody has played one of these?
  7. Anyone played one of the new J55's? How does it compare to other 2020's? Which is it most similar to?
  8. I have the 1960's HB fixed bridge. It's a fantastic Hummingbird, the best modern one i've played and i've owned 3 or 4. I compared it to the one in the pic above and the 1960's fixed bridge blew it out of the water.
  9. I purchased the following, I'll list them in order of my preference for them. SJ 200 Pre War, 1957 SJ200 Original Jumbo 1960's Hummingbird 1942 Southern Jumbo They are all really fantastic, i've owned a number of Gibson acoustics over the year but these are all awesome.
  10. I have one. It's a great guitar. I've purchased a few of the 2020 and this is probably my least favorite, but it's more that the other guitars are just exceptional.
  11. I have this guitar and the 1957 SJ, they are both fantastic.
  12. This was not purchased from Guitar Center but I did buy it from a Gibson dealer online. I have not changed the strings yet. I usually like 13's on my guitars but I'm not sure that would really suit the Dove.
  13. I measured the relief at the 7th fret. It's a brand new guitar. I've loosened the truss as far as it goes, to the point where it's completely loose.
  14. I adjusted the truss rod for more relief. The relief is at .015 and the buzz is still there on the open low E and open D. It mostly goes when fretted but gets worse at the 8th fret. I tried tightening the truss rod and the buzz got worse. Here is a pic of the nut. Yes I can take it to a tech but I was trying to avoid that if possible.
  15. Thanks for the responses. I don't believe it's the saddle. The string does appear to sit pretty low in the nut. The buzz does sound better when fretting at the second fret, but it's still there. Is that true that tightening the truss rod gets rid of buzz on open strings? That seems backwards to me.
  16. I got a new Dove yesterday and the low E played open is buzzing like crazy. I loosened the truss rod to give more relief, but it's still there. Anything else to try, the string does appear to be pretty low in the nut.
  17. I bought one of these, they are awesome. Really big tone, big fat neck.
  18. How do you think the new 1936 version would compare to an Advanced Jumbo Vintage that was a Wildwood exclusive a few years ago. The specs are nearly identical, hide glue, adi tip.
  19. I've been looking at and have purchased a few of the new 2020 line of custom historics. I've noticed that sometimes they come with the Red Line case with the purple interior and sometimes they just come with a normal hard case that comes with the non custom shop models. Does anyone know if there is a rhyme or reason for this or is it random. I had one dealer tell me that the non red line case is the historically correct case for the 1957 SJ200. However, on another site the same model comes with the red line case?
  20. Are there tonal differences between the J45 and the Southern Jumbo or is it really the different fret inlays? If there are differences, what would I notice?
  21. I do not know what strings are on it, I'll see if it happens to have the box in the case.
  22. I did end up buying it. Should be here next week.
  23. Is there a tonal difference between the DIF and the normal Dove or are you just paying the extra money for the bling?
