  1. A little more info on the "Early" . It was designed by Ren Ferguson (one of his first attempts at a reissue) Using molds from Kalamazoo J45s. 1 23/32 neck, and virtually identical in specs to a '52-'54 J45. From communications with owners and luthiers, it's held in high regard
  2. Has anyone tried these? What did you think?
  3. Hi. I'm getting ready to try some Gabriel Tenorio Strings. Still doing a little debating on which strings on which guitar... has anyone tried these?
  4. i keep getting 24.75. i need to trade this calculator in
  5. looks like my J45 is 12.375
  6. as good as my Early was, and as simple as it seems to remove the bridge thing, it might be worth it
  7. the seller explains the reason for it, and i haven't been able to find a reason to think he's not being honest. this is such a great model
  8. find a used LR Baggs M1(passive) you'll not regret it, and it's fun to see what your guitar sounds like with reverb and stuff. i'm constantly amazed at how good it sounds.
  9. exactly. a lot of people install these things, and they are supposedly easily removable as the seller said. anyway, the '98 Early J45 is an amazing guitar. i hope someone jumps on it
  10. oh crap... this just showed up. same year and model as the one i just got. a 1998 "Early J45". mine is amazing. get Jinder to weigh in on this one. at $1400 it may be a good deal. these are hard to find. it shows the neck as 1 11/16", but mine measures the Gibson standard 1 23/32. Ren Ferguson used the Kalamazoo molds for the bodies, and specs would make it a replica of like 1948-1954, with the exception of a 20th fret. mine is barely 4 pounds http://rvrb.io/1998-j45-dzxtoc
  11. nice upgrades (bone) Waverly button tuners (see if they have the originals) on this one from Valley ...http://rvrb.io/2014-j-45-standard-0pmlg4
  12. from a store called "the upper bout" http://rvrb.io/2014-j-45-standard-tqor0g
