  1. Hello Yeow.

    Only have the one HB. I feel the walnut makes this guitar project the notes more and is a loud guitar using a pick. I'm more of a fingerpicker. Still trying out different strings. I like the E/B Everlast 11's so far.

    If you're still thinking about this axe, I highly recommend it.

    Thanks for the question.

    Hi Teer,

    I understand from the post that you own a HB Custom Walnut? Can I kindly ask of your review on it, as I'm thinking of buying one from my local dealer. How does it compare to the rest of your HBs? Thank you!

  3. I would have preferred if 'all' of the albums were in a box set, be it vinyl(my choice) or cd. But alas, I see myself buying them.
  4. I have one of those Bhilwara Indian Rosewood AJ's Carlos.
  5. Nice CB! A little over a month ago I went into my local Long&McQuade to inquire about the new Fender Dimension bass. None were there but my buddy/salesperson Rick showed me the KDSG on their site, and the price was only 1399.00. Not having played a SG before I decided to put a downpayment on one(again, none in stock and no knowledge on when they would available). Thursday past it came in, picked it up on Friday. Very nice guitar and it's loud. No issues with the wiring. Only fault I found is when the toggle switch is in the neck position, the togpot is a little difficult to turn.
  6. Was into my local Long&McQuade today to pick up a harness for my Ric 4001. While there, my buddy Rick(salesperson) showed me a pic of the Kirk Douglas Gibson SG. I'm not a big fan of the SG but the price was too good to pass up, $1399.00 Needless to say I put a down payment on one. And its funny because I went in to purchase one of the new Fender Dimension basses. Go figure. And it's another Gibby in the family. Why not? The selector switch is also a blend knob for the middle p/u, as well as the neck & bridge p/u can be coil-split via the pots. Methinks a good buy. Teer
  7. I like Elixers as well. I've also tried Ernie Ball 'Everlast' (11-52 PB) which to my ears sound and feel great especially on my Martin. Gonna try a set on one of Gibbys. Check them out. Teer
  8. @Mersey, I purchased a set of Ernie Ball Everlast PB coated strings, 11-52 gauge. So far the best strings I've used on my Martin HD28. Haven't tried them on my Gibby's. Also, they're not cheap! @Euro, 11's no good for a Martin? Please elaborate? It's all a learning experience. Teer btw, put a set of Ernie Ball Slinkys 9-42 Cobalt on my LP Trad. I quite like them.
  9. I have a 75th Anni. AJ which i purchased last year. You all comment on the scale/fret/intonation/etc. I have noticed on mine that the bridge is higher on the bass side than on the treble side. Would this have something to do with the scale/.../etc.? Was it introduced back in the day, or a new modern modification? Go figure. Great post Tom. Teer
  10. This is probably a stupid question(and not relating to the video).....what are the differences between a Southern Jumbo and an Advanced Jumbo? I've read that the SJ is a sister to the J-45, what does that make an AJ(as opposed to the 45)be? And again, the differences? Teer
  11. Thanks for the vids Juan! I have one of those AJ's(75th anniversary) and the J-185(60th anniversary). Simply beautiful! The J-185 is a dream to play, has a sweet tone but don't have the boldness of the AJ. I might even say the J-45(standard) I have can't compete with the AJ. Bold words I know. Both the AJ & the J-185 were bought at my local 5 star Gibson dealer(Reid's Music). The J-45 bought at a local brick & mortar store. I also put on layaway a (only 60 made) Hummingbird at the 5 star dealer as well. Here's a pic: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/SD12LTD (scroll do
  12. Would 'Tubular Bells' count? T

    This normal?

    Thanks for all the replies. All of my other acoustics have the same height of bridge on both sides. Is there an advantage to one side being higher? Lower action maybe? Is this the norm for AJ's Curious. T
