  1. 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.



  2. 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.



  3. 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.

  4. 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?
