  1. Has anyone got one of these from the Original Collection? Opinions? I would buy one immediately if lefties were still available but alas it seems I've got to wait until the end of March next year to get my hands on one.
  2. You will probably have to live with it. It is possible to get the headstock refinished, but it's hardly feasible getting it professionally done given the costs.
  3. 50's Gold Top w/ P90s—everything else is just trash.
  4. Just pick one up in a store and see for yourself. There's little point in asking the fan base that.
  5. An experienced luthier might be able to touch it up so that it's not as noticable anymore replacing the missing chunk of binding and repainting it.
  6. Get a quote from Gibson or a luthier directly. There may be more damage to the instrument than is immediately visible, so take that into account as well. What happened to it, Donnie?
  7. The J-200 can do it all. Not just a big, bold strummer.
  8. I'd guess not a Gibson or a case of badly reglued braces.
  9. I hear no rattling either in the video OP posted. Since he was digging quite deeply into the strings, I would not be surprised, though, if the strings at issue were to rattle against the frets. I don't think there is any structural or more serious issue at hand here. A proper setup goes a long way for years of use to come. It is worth shelling out a few bucks for it on a high-end instrument such as this if you can't do it yourself (which, with acoustics, might be more difficult).
  10. For good reason. The Everly was effectively a thinline J-185 similar to the AG parlor models today; the Montana reissues bring back the necessary punch to the classic compact shape. As much as I love replicas, the modern take is an overall better design.
  11. And here with his original Gibson Everly from the 60s for good measure:
  12. With Gibson guitars, the truss rod nut is often enveloped in lacquer or the truss rod cavity, while not too small itself, has a thick coat of lacquer so that you often need, for the first few times anyways, to use a little force to get the truss rod socket properly connected onto the nut. Your guitar should have come with the right truss rod wrench. If in doubt, buy a new one, or the multitool, directly from Gibson.
