  1. Headstock logo 1900- 1930s
  2. Just put up a good board across the wall over the line the hangers are on, then you just mount the hangers to the board. No plaster work. ๐Ÿ˜Ž .
  3. For the distance you took the photo, it looks okay. I agree with Leonard McCoy - a higher resolution snapshot and one up-close on the seamline would help. But if you aren't seeing separation, it should be fine. With a bookmatch split, you get whatever is in the wood block - in your guitar a little bit of a light colored strip was on the edge that became the middle. Since it's a local shop, if you can't get past the appearance, ask for an exchange. This wouldn't concern me - I'd be more focused on the playability and the sound/tone.
  4. Yes, that really sets it off nice! ๐Ÿ˜Ž .
  5. Yep. Been using the PC . . . . no problem. Some Gibson techie screwed the pooch.
  6. Also agree. CFM and Gibby for a long time. Gulild came on strong in the later 60's and 70's. "Boutique" guitars got popular in the 90s. I recall Taylor having a hard time being taken seriously until the last decade, especially since they've been paying more attention to their sound when Andy Powers took over guitar design.
  7. I'm wondering if it will out sell this for real, no joke, classic 2017 model -
  8. The wrong inspection checklist is from a case mixup. Itโ€™s happened to me a coupla times - they put the guitar on display and when itโ€™s sold they canโ€™t find the right case because some doofus paired it with the wrong guitar and no one noticed. This can be a headache if the guitar had a COA. Guitar is most likely legit.
  9. Damn, drastic. Hope those remorse bugs don't start crawling. I'll probably get to that at some point (26 ๐Ÿ˜Ž), but not yet. .
  10. Good to hear youโ€™re out and doing it. What a find. I did some checking online - the Sigma LGMC-SG100F. Theyโ€™ve been making some decent Gibby clones over the last coupla years. Very nice. Congrats! ๐Ÿ˜Ž .
  11. Here's a spec list from MF on the Limited Edition Classic Dove as pictured in the clip. Body Body type: Square Shoulder Hollowbody Cutaway: Non-cutaway Top wood: Solid Sitka Spruce Back & sides: Solid Flame Maple Bracing pattern: Info not available Body finish: Antique with hand rubbed cherry stain on back and sides Orientation: Right handed Neck Neck shape: Round Nut width: 1.725" (43.8mm) Fingerboard: Rosewood Neck wood: Maple Scale length: 25.75" Number of frets: 20 Neck finish: Nitrocellulose
  12. I posted this in the Lounge, but I know some of the guys here on the Acoustic subforum don't get into the Lounge. Hopefully the mods will let it stay here. So here it is - check the parting shot - John with an SJ-200. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
