  1. The masses (experts) have spoken. I went ahead and switched them out. As they say, out with the old and in with the new. Of course, you realize that should this guitar NOT hold it's value after 30 years, I will come and get all of you guys :- On a serious note, thanks for the advise!! OLD: Say hello to my NEW lil freng: http://i716.photobucket.com/albums/ww166/ibmrmojo/IMG00640.jpg Of course, now that it is said and done, I STILL want your thoughts, feedback, etc.
  2. I originally intended to buy the SJ...it was on hold for another customer, therefore I settled and bought the KOA SWD. Don't get me wrong, the SWD has a very nice sound to it, but I don't "feel it". I have played both guitars and the sounds are a bit different...I can't quite describe it. Again, the SWD has a mellow, softer tonality...almost like a Taylor, where the SJ sound is different in another way....heavier, I would even say. Another deciding factor is value...I know both guitars sound "good" or "acceptable", but out of the two, which would or may even have a tendency to hold it's value.
  3. Thanks for the input...Sounds like maybe I should switch them out...then I read some of these posts, and it becomes a TOUGH decision. I WISH that there was a away for me to keep both of them, but I don't think it's possible. HELP!!!! Come on others!!!! ChIME IN PLEASE!!!!
  4. Good Afternoon, I'm here because I value your opinions as experts...so here goes. I own a Gibson Songwriter made out of KOA. It is in mint shape...plays like a dream. I bought it for two reasons...one, the sound and two, I look at it as somewhat of an investment (custom shop, not many made, etc.). Having said that, I know that no one has the ability to fortell the future. I have a Gibson Acoustic Southern Jumbo (with the double inlays) in my sights. I could trade the KOA and get the Southern Jumbo without taking that big of a hit. So here is my question, out of these two guitars, which one do you guys think will hold more value in 30 years from now. All things considered. Any advise would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  5. I need the experts on this forum help. I usually go by the my friend's pawn shop to find "treasures". I ran into this guitar that looks like a gibson, feels like a gibson, but there are a couple things that don't feel right. Any information on this would be very helpful. Thank you in advance! The inlays look like they may be the supreme figured style, but every supreme figured les paul...says supreme on the headstock....I ran the serial number through the dater and it said: Your guitar was made at the Bozeman Plant , MA, USA May 23rd, 2003 Production Number: 137 http://i716.photobucket.com/albums/ww166/ibmrmojo/IMG00599.jpg http://i716.photobucket.com/albums/ww166/ibmrmojo/IMG00598.jpg http://i716.photobucket.com/albums/ww166/ibmrmojo/IMG00597.jpg http://i716.photobucket.com/albums/ww166/ibmrmojo/IMG00596.jpg http://i716.photobucket.com/albums/ww166/ibmrmojo/IMG00595.jpg
  6. Wow...That is some GOOD information...Thank you SO much. Here is my next question. I have been reading up on LG0s. From what I have read, the all have LG0 stamped on the inside. I have looked with a flashlight and dont see anything. Other than that, it fits all the descriptions.
  7. Hi, I bought this guitar from a friend of mine. He told me it belonged to his great grandfather or grandfather (I can't remember). It has a really soft sound, plays real sweet, and looks really nice. I don't have any information about it though. Does anyone know what year, model...or any information on this. If I ever wanted to resell it, how much would it be worth. ANY information would be helpful. Thank and have a great new year!!! http://i716.photobucket.com/albums/ww166/ibmrmojo/IMG_5005.jpg http://i716.photobucket.com/albums/ww166/ibmrmojo/IMG_5008.jpg http://i716.photobucket.com/albums/ww166/ibmrmojo/IMG_5016.jpg http://i716.photobucket.com/albums/ww166/ibmrmojo/IMG_5013.jpg
