  1. That’s awesome! You got a great custom J45 for an amazing deal.
  2. I would hit up Gibson customer service with the serial number to get all the specs. You might be surprised to find you got something extra special there.
  3. My 2014 has a VTC. The acoustic sound is out of this world, I’m not sure how much the pickup element effects the sound. As it is the guitar sounds great acoustic and plugged, I’d be hard pressed to play pickup roulette at this point. I also have a fishman aura which makes the VTC sound even better. One caveat is that I have been thinking of changing the pickguard for purely aesthetic reasons.
  4. Where are people getting their tor-‘‘tis or firestripe guards? Specifically for J45s. It looks like a lot of the usual suspects are out of stock or out of business. I’m thinking of putting a firestripe batwing on mine, or perhaps doing a double torT is teardrop . I’ve always liked the double pickguard look. Has anybody recently been able to get a good pickguard replacement. Guitar gallery is all sold out and it looks like firestripe pickguard is a thing of the past. What are the odds of getting a left and right teardrop direct from Gibson?
  5. He updated his website and says the Gibson is a J45 he bought off craigslist. I love the Fireside sessions...waiting for number 3
  6. Saw Verlon last year at the cactus cafe here in Austin and he told the story about the Bourgeois before playing this song. He along with Shawn Camp played all of the great songs from Guys catalog. Guy Clark was definitely a once in a lifetime songwriter. I am very fortunate to have saw the show with Verlon and Shawn, it was an amazing night of great acoustic tones and a wonderful tribute to Guy.
  7. I actually got all my info from Gibson. I contacted them asking if the warranty was still valid even though the seller is no longer a 5 star dealer. They said that the warranty is valid and gave me all the specs and number of pieces of the limited run.
  8. Going on two months and I just can’t get enough of this guitar. The dealer had 80/20 JP lights strings when I bought it and I recently put Gibson 80/20 lights for my first string change since purchase. Really liking the 80/20 sounds. I also replaced the stock plastic pins with a hybrid Ebony/water buffalo horn set, can’t say if the tone has changed but I do like the black pins with the Abalone dots aesthetically. Usually daddario NBs are my favorite so that may be what comes next. Has anyone tried new mediums or light top heavy bottom sets on a J45? Wondering what would be gained or lost going up a gauge just on the bass strings. Hard to imagine that anythiing could be improved. This guitar is further proof that when you find a good J45 you don’t really need much else.
  9. Thanks! Yep played it for my wife whom I wrote it for when we started dating. And actually it’s a new guitar month at this point. I waited till I had it for a month before making a post. My understanding is that it has the standard bracing Thanks. I have a capo in seven and playing out of G. The only song I use that high of a voicing.
  10. 8mm app from nexvio then ran through iMovie app to brighten it and trim the video
  11. Recorded an original song off the iPad with the new guitar
  12. First recording of an original song with my new j45
  13. @62burst Maybe it was, the owner brought it out from the back room....could have been sitting there with my name on some painters tape and he simply took it off before bringing it out for me to try. it was a definite The Guitar moment
  14. @j45nick it’s a 2014. So the guitar has had some serious time to open up. I called Gibson and it’s one of 75 made for that year. Basically a standard with red spruce, a vos finish and upgraded tuners. Also being NOS I still have the lifetime warranty. I’m not sure why it took so long before it sold... perhaps it was waiting for me like the guitar in the Guy Clark song....
