  1. I suspect, the G45 for $999 was too close in price and target marketplace to the Epiphone Inspired by J45 model selling for $699, which looks like a fairly decent guitar. I think it’s pretty cool the way Epiphone is carving out its own niche of affordable decent well made instruments. Not Gibsons, but affordable decent guitars with many Gibson characteristics and vibes. QM aka “ Jazzman” Jeff
  2. A well thought out, well said post, Jinder! QM aka “ Jazzman” Jeff
  3. It sounds like you’re implying Gibson doesn’t make any reasonably priced guitars like Martin does on its imported line...seemingly forgetting that Gibson’s reasonably priced guitars come out under their imported Epiphone brand, Just saying... QM aka “Jazzman” Jeff
  4. I find that after after I play my long scale neck guitars for an extended stretch, it feels strange to play my short scale guitars for a short while. Likewise, after I play my short scale guitars for an extended stretch, it then feels strange to play my long scale ones for a short while. Its all just getting used to the long or short scale, then it becomes no longer noticeable. I would think once you get used to the positioning of the fretboard, it won't be noticeable to you anymore. How long have you had the guitar? If you just purchased it, and if its really not what you thought it wo
  5. My guess is that part, if not all, of the reason is simply because the imported machine made Epiphone version of the Gibson J160 needed to be differentiated from the modern day Gibson, USA handcrafted version, which had a significantly higher new price tag. There are likely probably some other differentiations between the two, although both bear a similar model number (except for the E in the Epiphone model name) and look similar. Such as a variation on the materials of the back and sides and the version of the pickup in each. How does the Epiphone EJ160 play and sound? QM aka “Ja
  6. Good soulful version and arrangement. Always a great song to hear! QM aka “Jazzman” Jeff
  7. Rusty Strings-thanks for liking the rendition and glad it triggered great LG1 memories! QM aka “ Jazzman” Jeff
  8. Thanks for pointing out the edit in its new spot. QM aka “ Jazzman” Jeff
  9. I just noticed the forum works full screen good on my iPhone, again! (Although, the posting edit function now seems to be gone. Oh well.) QM aka “Jazzman” Jeff
  10. Jinder and Sparquelito- I am really glad my version of Brian Wilson’s Love and Mercy connected to you. Jinder, you are very lucky to have had conversations with Brian Wilson. Thanks for sharing that experience in response to the song I posted. And, Sparquelito...thanks for sharing the synchronicity that you recently listened to Brian Wilson doing his song. Brian Wilson is a great great great musician/composer and he has been a great influence on my music, by the way he creates a whole musical virtual world in his songs and arrangements. I saw him in concert a few months before the
  11. Roger-great version of this song. Great pick’n and soulful interpretation! QM aka “Jazzman” Jeff
  12. Thanks all for listening/watching and the kind comments! QM aka “Jazzman” Jeff
  13. With all the talk about Gibson LG1s, here a video I just made of me singing Brian Wilson's "Love and Mercy" accompanied by my 1965 LG1. Any and all comments are welcome and encouraged. I am primarily a guitar instrumentalist, but this song's lyrics warranted that I sing it and accompany myself on guitar. It a very moving song that is applicable to our times. Hope you enjoy!

  14. SkipT2043- Thanks for sharing the story of the guitar and the case. The Heritage guitar and its case literally has a great“heritage” connection to you! It’s great when a guitar (and it’s case) can have an important connection and history to its player! Very inspiring! Thanks too for clarifying the guitar fits in the case! Welcome to the forum! QM aka “ Jazzman” Jeff
  15. I have a similar case for my 1936 Epiphone Zenith archtop guitar. I seriously do not think a Gibson square shouldered dreadnaught guitar will fit into it. Nor should you want it to fit. Those archtop cases are wooden underneath their covering and have an archtop curve on their top to accommodate an archtop bridge, something that doesn’t exist on a flattop guitar. Plus, archtop guitars have a smaller and rounded upper bout and a larger and rounder lower bout whereas a flattop square shouldered guitar is, well squarer, on the top and bottom. It would be like trying to get a square shape in
