  1. I got Elixir Phospher Bronze 11s on her. I like this old girl. I have heard compliments on early 50s Gibson necks. And I agree.
  2. Take your guitar to all of the local repair guys and get an estimate from each. Save the money on shipping and insurance both ways and that can be put into your repair. If the cost of a professional repair is prohibitive then sell your instrument. Or trade it as is for a functional guitar.
  3. I had always wanted a 60s era Hummingbird. Lucked up on a Square Shoulder 68 SJ Had that fast mid 60s neck. Had The Tone. Foolishly let it do. I have a Bedell 64 Dreadnought. She has good,good tone.But it is not my favorite scale. So I have a 1953 Southern Jumbo on the way.

  5. Wow....this is so amazing. She is clean and very pristine.
  6. I would have liked more Peter Green / Danny Kirwin stuff. Also more of the band Free.
  7. 16 1/8" wide on SJ and 16 " on Hummingbird
  8. I heard from Wes at Gruhn's and the specs construction wise should be the same at least 62-64. In 65 the Hummingbird went to 25.5 scale. I am not certain about the SJ in 65.
  9. Next week my lady and I are going to Memphis and Nashville. I will pose this question at Gruhn's and Carter's Enquiring Minds want to know.
  10. They are sending me some Dragon Skins instead. And were very apologetic about the dead String.
  11. I am just curious. But other than the pickguard on an early 60s Hummingbird, what is the difference between it and a early 60s square shouldered SJ ?
  12. I sent them an email.
  13. Thanks man. I may reach out to them
  14. The DR Sunbeam 12s did not work for me.I know many folks here like them. The big E was dead out of the package and they felt odd. I had my luthier put Elixir Nanoweb Phospher Bronze 11s on there and he adjusted the saddle. It is now warm and loud.
  15. Was the skunk stripe painted on or was it a piece of wood inlaid on the top ?

    Kopp K-45

    I am going over details as to what appointments I would want on her.

    Kopp K-45

    I am talking with Kevin about a custom build K-35 with SJ appointments. Possibly Koa back and sides. I think he could pull it off. I was leaning towards a early 50s Southern Jumbo, for the same money. But I don't want to buy a vintage Guitar sight unseen ( not played ) with potential issues. I think the Kopp would be a safer bet.

    Has anyone any experience with these guitars ?
  19. I too like Elixirs and the Sunbeams are growing on me.
  20. I lusted after 14 year old girls when I was 14 years old, maybe even when I was 15 years old. And I never got to first base. Heck.....I was just glad to get into the same ballpark.
  21. I got one too. Glad it's gone.
