  1. Yes Countdown to Estacy is one of my favourite LPs RIP
  2. Thoughts and prayers to you all 🙏
  3. Thanks for all the great music and awesome picking RIP
  4. Yes I do this quite often , I place a Shure SM58 on a boom stand in front of the guitar and plug into the mic channel of my AER 60 . Got to be honest in the context that I use this it works well , I find the best position for the Mike is close to the 14th fret ( the body and neck joint ) I don't play loud so it's just used for sound reinforcement in church
  5. Just my J45 and a Spotify playlist loaded with all Ralph McTells albums will do me just fine
  6. Ok after reading this I sat down and worked out that over 53 years of playing I've owned 52 guitars !! The ones I have are in my signature and they all get used . My main three acoustics are the J45 , the Martin and the SLG200 Yamaha . My electrics don't get used now but I love them to bits and the GS Mini is there all the time . Would I buy another ? Yes in a heartbeat but I'd never sell what I've already got . Next on the list sometime in the future will be a sunburst J200
  7. It's funny , I can still remember the thrill that I felt when I strummed my friends fathers guitar for the first time after hearing Apache on the radio . 53 years later that feeling hasn't left me , still totally obsessed and overwhelmed by the instrument. The last eight years playing fingerstyle acoustic has been the best though
  8. Yes I have a Martin JTOODB and I know how you feel but. I honestly love the feel of mine and don't worry at all . The tone and playability more than make up for the Richlite fretboard and bridge , after all having a Richlite board and bridge was all part of the certified woods construction of the guitarQ
  9. Hi ,All my guitars are set to Gibson Acoustic specs ( or very close ) 7/64 Low E , this can alter slightly according to the weather but I've always found this setup to be perfect for me . My Martin OODB had a Pleck setup in the factory and the action is slightly lower at the nut than the J45 . One important point , I use the capo a lot right up to the 6th fret sometimes, for me too lower action can result in the strings buzzing behind the capo , so for me this is fine
  10. Yes + 1 for the above . Also the Marshall AS50D and 100 work well with the LRBaggs systems
  11. Hi I wouldn't worry if it's "new" and unplayed and sounds great , no doubt it does . My UK Burns Legend was constructed out of a NOS 1960s neck and body
  12. I have the same uncertainty, LR Baggs state 1,000 hours on a fully charged ( new ) battery . I would love to purchase a meter that could be plugged into a jack plug to measure the charge of the battery inside the guitar ( do they make one ??? ) I change the battery on my J45 Standard every six months , used or not
  13. Feel for you Buc keep your chin up
  14. I paired my J45 with the Martin Tweedy and couldn't be happier the J45 is just great for gigging in an acoustic duo but the Martin is really at home being at home , it's a fantastic couch guitar being fingerpicked . Yes I love the J200 but just a bit too big for me and I don't strum just fingerpick .
