  1. Looking at the Gibson LG-2 models for the last 15 years - I know of 3: American Eagle, Americana and the current 50's. There's a pretty wide price range on these - I cannot find a good discussion of their differences and similarities. Can someone point me to an article or video that compares just the LG-2's???? Anyone out there try these different LG-2's side by side? Any impressions? I can get an AE much cheaper that the other two, but are they built different? Thanks.
  2. Hi, I've had several Gibson Acoustics, but I'm writing about my J-45 TV. It's from 2008. I love the sound of the guitar, but I'm not happy with the action after the 5th fret. I've adjusted the truss rod to what I believe to be correct, and I've sanded down the saddle - with no buzz, but if I take it down any more I know it will buzz. I'm still seeing about 6/32" at the 12th fret. Which isn't tremendous, I know, but everything I read/see says it should be around 3/32 or 4/32. Are there any other options for lowering the action on an acoustic? Everything I read talks about adjusting the truss rod and maybe sanding the saddle a little. What do you do from there? Any input or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
