  1. mine says 1/30 on this inside. They all say this. As far as the bass, it's got a great bass response. It's not the biggest bass i've ever had, that would got to my Gibson Super 200 that I just sold. It had the biggest bass i've ever heard on a guitar, unfortunately, the rest of the guitar seemed muddy, which is why I went with the 38 Reissue. As far as price, I found someone on the Ebay that had an unplayed one, paid way less than $5k.
  2. I have the 2016 1938 SJ200. It's fantastic guitar, i've been playing it all day today. Let me know if you have questions.
  3. Thanks for the video that helps. I've had 3 or 4 SJ's and I always end up selling them for some reason. I have a Hummingbird I really like, they seem quieter than a hummingbird and maybe a little more balanced.
  4. Does anyone have one of these? There doesn't seem to be many around. It looks like they have an Adi/Rosewood combo. I'm curious as to the tone compared to a standard SJ200. They look like they are $5k, pretty steep. I've had a few SJ200's and haven't found one that really does it for me. They've all seemed not that loud and maybe too balanced.
  5. Don't worry about the Richlite. I have a Custom SIlverburst with it, no big deal.
  6. Great cover, can I ask what strings your bird has on it?
  7. I paid substantially lower than that price from EM Shorts.
  8. Anyone prefer mediums on a SJ200 or are people sticking with the standard lights?
  9. I think they look and sound pretty great. With there not being many of these around, how do you think their value would hold? What are others thoughts on the video. It sounds in the video much like a SJ200.
  10. It is a maple I'm lookin at.
  11. I'm trying to decide between a Adi or a Sitka SJ200. Unfortunately, I won't be able to play before I buy as no dealers around have them in stock. I have a few guitars and I've tended to like the Adi tops more, so I'm leaning towards that, but what are others opinions. I'm looking for that classic SJ200 sound.
  12. Thanks, do you think the custom logo that's on the other ones is just a sticker? I noticed on GC they don't have the custom logo on the pick guard.
  13. The guitar sold on eBay right after I posted it. How was the tone? Was it loud, did it have a good amount of bass?

  15. Has anyone played one of the limited edition Super 200? Below is a link. How are they from a tone perspective? Are they like a SJ200? http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=281969582731&globalID=EBAY-US
  16. Does anyone have one of these New Vintage SJ200's from Wildwood? I'd like to hear anyone's thoughts on these and how they compare to normal SJ200's.
  17. I'm trying to find the best strings to bring out all the great qualities of my new hummingbird. I'm not sure what strings the shop where I purchased the guitar from had on it but it sounded a little dead. Yesterday I put D'addario EJ12 80/20 strings on it. So the far the results are mixed, i like how it makes it sound brighter but it sounds like it's missing something. What's everyone's favorite strings for their Hummingbird?
  18. Reverb is great, lower fees, and it seems like you get less bottom feeders that try to make ridiculous low offers.
  19. I've got one of these and they are fantastic.
  20. Thanks for the nice compliments. Let me answer a few questions. Yes it's a 34 Original Jumbo Reissue. The Bird is the Red Spruce version that's actually Mahogany not Maple. I love the bright red on the burst, the bird sounds great. The Red Spurce gives it a little more punch but I can tell it needs to break in as it does a bit stiff. The J200 is the Mystic Rosewood version which gives it a bass response that I really enjoy.
  21. Here is a pic of my new Hummingbird Red Spruce along with the rest of my Gibson family.
  22. Hey, It just happens i'm selling j200 case. Perfectly functional but fairly beat up on the outside. I was looking for $50 plus shipping.
  23. Can I ask you what you snagged it for on clearance? That's just the model i'm looking at. I actually have a natural Mystic Rosewood that is really a great guitar but I was thinking of adding a sunburst as well.
  24. Thanks, they seller is stuck on $4,000 for a sunburst SJ200 Custom with the abalone trim. I believe these were $4800 new, the discount doesn't seem good enough to me.
  25. Are sunburst SJ200's worth more money than their natural colored siblings? I've been looking at some SJ200 customs and they vary in price.
