  1. BigKahune


    Very tasty. Congrats! 😎 .
  2. Here’s your other post with additional pic - It doesn’t appear to be a genuine Gibson.
  3. There quite a long list of comments on FB - such an outpouring of concern and love. I’ve decided to put my comments here. Jinder - my best wishes for your recovery. I hope you get home soon. .
  4. There were a coupla limited AJs in 2018: Torrefied Red Spruce/Mystic Rosewood Maple back & sides Red Spruce top - of which Gibson has done limited runs frequently in the last few years. I’ve got one from 2013 - the label is marked “AJ Red Spruce” and “Custom Shop”. It also has a Custom Shop decal on the bottom back side of the headstock. Here’s a spec list for a pretty standard Limited AJ except for the neck profile - GIBSON 2018 LIMITED ADVANCED JUMBO SPEC: Top: Solid Sitka Spruce Back & Sides: Solid Rosewood Finish: Nitrocellulose Lacquer Neck: Mahogany Neck Profile: 'V' Scale Length: 25.5" Fingerboard: Rosewood Fingerboard Radius: 12" Number of Frets: 19 Frets: Standard Nut: Bone Nut Width: 1.725" Inlays: Mother-of-Pearl Diamonds and Arrows Truss Rod Cover: Limited Hardware Finish: Nickel Bridge: Rectangle Open Slot Bone Tuning Machines: Grover Open Back Pickguard: AJ .
  5. Congrats Anne. 😎 Very cool in Ebony! Looking forward to your thoughts upon receiving your new L-00. .
  6. Is it a buzz? Is the guitar a bit dry (low humidity)? I wouldn’t mess with the nut - a tad too high and you’ll get into sharp fretted notes in the first two or three frets. I would let it continue to acclimate to its new home for a few days with an eye on humidity. If that doesn’t help you might think about a higher saddle. BTW, she’s a beauty. 😎 .
  7. Nice vid. 😎 Gorgeous guitar. A coupla other nice ones sitting in the background. Congrats & enjoy! 👍👍 .
  8. I looked at this model when it came out (maple fan). Very nice. Here’s some info from an old MF write up: This Limited Edition J-45 Big Leaf Maple is a wonderful addition to the Tonewood Edition Series. A Sitka spruce top is joined with a mahogany neck and beautiful big leaf maple back and sides. Yielding an instrument with pure Gibson tone with a rich, projective midrange and ample sustain. This Limited Edition features the added versatility of an L.R. Baggs VTC pickup for easy plug and play anywhere you perform and vintage style gold open back Grover tuners. Only 75 handmade instruments will be available for this June limited edition hand-built in Bozeman, Montana. Body Body type: Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Cutaway: No Top wood: Sitka Spruce Back & sides: Big Leaf Maple Bracing pattern: Scalloped X Body finish: Nitrocellulose Lacquer Orientation: Right handed Neck Neck shape: Slim taper Nut width: 1.725 in.

  9. Great run down Dave. Very nice BSJ. Congrats & enjoy! 😎 .
  10. Beautiful. Fantastic looking vintage finish. congrats & enjoy! 😎 .
  11. After seeing these pics, I’m really glad all of my current Gibson acoustics were produced under Ren’s watch - a drip or two maybe, an unwiped squeeze out possibly, but those pics show a real mess. I’m guessing the new owners have financial situations exacerbated by COVID that call for speeding production up. I sure hope this isn’t a new normal. 😎 .
  12. I’ve always used what’s called the “tech method” in the video. Very stable. 😎 .
