  1. Thanks. Yeah I have used him before, pretty competent and experienced. I live in vermont
  2. There is nothing left to the frets. I will look into EVO. He is charging me 250 but not sure if that factors in fret choice. My guitar is a 71 J40
  3. I may stick with newtone double wound. They have worked out really well.
  4. Also, just refret and new nut as far as I know
  5. I haven't. I will ask. I'm not too familiar with different fret wires for different playing styles. I am relatively new, so strumming and basic chord progression is where I am at right now.
  6. Dropping my guitar of for a refret tomorrow. Based on your experiences, are there things to be mindful of or questions I should be asking my luthier? Thanks!
  7. What's the best way to find info about my specific guitar? In addition to the fabric side stays, I have so many questions about it. I was thinking of using the serial number and calling up Gibson directly to try and get information. Has anyone had luck with that? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  8. Very interesting! Seems as though the stays date back to the '40s/50s. So wierd that my J40 has them. I have seen others with them as well. I wonder if these were made with left over parts from guitar models?
  9. Hi gang, why do some guitars use wood side stays while others use fabric? My J40 has tan fabric ones. What's does the material typically say about the guitar, if anything?

  11. Yeah! I just didn't get the 80/20s :)
  12. Awesome thanks everyone. I decided to give martin marquis lights a try, really cheap and good reviews so why not? Let u know how it turns our!
  13. Hi all, you have been so helpful in past posts that I thought I would ask what you like for strings, particularly light strings, or maybe extra lights. So far I have used Newtone Masterclass and D'Addario EJ16 lights. Having a spruce top mahogany b/s guitar, what do you recommend?
