  1. How does the Dove compare against the Hummingbird? I've been surprised when i read that the Dove is loud, that's never been my experience with maple guitars.
  2. Besides appearance and price, what differences are there between these two guitars? I believe the 1960's version has a torrified top as well a red line case. Does anyone think it sound $1,000 better than the regular hummingbird? I won't be able to play these before purchasing.
  3. Hey, I just got mine and I feel like i got great deal on it. Mine is the sunburst model and i got it for $5100
  4. Have you had a chance to play any of the new models?
  5. Does anybody know where I can pick up one of these new Southern Jumbo 1942 models? I've been to all the big guys sites but nobody has them yet?
  6. Sounds really great, does anyone think it sounds better than one of the "normal" hummingbirds that is quite a bit cheaper?
  7. Very helpful, thanks for the replies. Sounds like I may have to get a few of them and see which I like more.
  8. The new custom one is Rosewood.
  9. Okay thanks, then how does the Southern Jumbo fit in with those?
  10. Which was the loudest with bigger bass?
  11. I'm considering a few of the new 2020 models. What are the tone differences between the Advanced Jumbo, Original Jumbo, and Southern Jumbo? Is there a ton of overlap between the 3?
  12. Interesting, thanks for the replies.
  13. I see that there are 2 models of custom shop 2020 hummingbirds, one with adjustable saddle and one without. Why would one want an adjustable saddle? What't adjustable about them?
  14. How much overlap is there between the Southern Jumbo and AJ? Stupid to own both?
  15. Anyone been able to play any of the 2020 Historic lineup? I'm pretty intrigued by the SJ200 Pre War as well as the 1942 Southern Jumbo.
  16. I've been debating getting a Wildwood Vintage AJ, has anyone played one of those. They are pretty expensive but look like a great instrument.
  17. I've seen this and asked the question before. Supposedly it's illegal for Japanese Gibson dealers to ship to the US. The people on ebay are resellers who typically don't own the actual guitar they are selling. If you buy, they go buy from the store where it's much cheaper than US prices.
  18. Just picked up a SJ200 Vine edition, i'm considering putting mediums on the guitar to give it a little more oomph. I'm worried it may choke the sound a bit, what are people's opinions on mediums on a SJ200?
  19. You can never really tell by a short audio clip like that. I have 3 Authentic's(none are the 1941), and they are all incredible guitars. Never played the real deal but these really are sweet sounding guitars. I have a few great Gibson's as well but they have their own sound.
  20. Hey guys, I decided to end up selling this beauty. I've just bought too many acoustics in the last 6 months. My link
  21. I've had mediums on my maple HB and i'm thinking of going back to 12's.
