  1. Hello fellow Gibbies, So seriously considering coming to the dark side and getting a Gibson ELECTRIC GuitaršŸ˜® Love my J 45 but always wanted to mess around and dance with an electric. So seeing the LP Special Jr double cuts for around 700 bucks new. Any thoughts on this model?? Good or bad?? I really do not speak electric guitar so any opinions/thoughts would be helpful. It will be a kinda "noodle" guitar and I need to keep my price below 1k. Open to any other suggestions, however, I love Gibson. I would consider hollow-body if I could find one in the target price range.
  2. Played a few J 15s.....wonderful guitars and might end up with one. Remember, your string selection will make an impact on the guitars sound. Lots of strings to consider and you might need to research . For the $$, the J15 is a solid buy, easy choice. Good luck and play on!
  3. Thanks all for the great suggestions.......flight leaves in 8 hrs...time for bed!! Will take notes for anyone that might need ideas in the future........Play On!
  4. Hey fellow Gibbys......Going to NY for 6 days n leave tomorrow. Hitting a Broadway Musical-Girl from the North Country (revolves around Dylan songs). Yo Yo Ma on Wednesday......otherwise free to wander. Will likely revisit the Dakota, just because...I have to. Tell me about any other music related spots that you might recommend. Cheers!!
  5. RIP Neil.....Hell of a drummer and also wrote the lyrics. I don't think a day goes by when I don't play Subdivisions in my head. I will smile when I hear thunder.....Play on Neil.
  6. I too am addicted to the J45 dry thump.......Monel mediums on mine....life is good.
  7. Yep....^^^ what dhanners said....mediums. Monel Retro's and leave em on for a few months to appreciate them.
  8. My, that looked like a steal......probably worked out best for me as I would have been thrown outa the house.
  9. Medium Martin Retro Monels nail it on my 2018 J45. If you like em now....wait a month!!
  10. Nice look'n guitar and sounds like a keeper.......those ol' guitars surly have some stories to tell.
  11. Congrats on that cool J45. More pics would be nice!! What part of Ireland are you from??
  12. ++ What Jinder said. Looks like Capo mojo.
  13. I'll be your brother......Cool project and ya get cool points for the photos. Thanks for posting!!
  14. Good vibes and Karma being sent your way Sal........Strike a D chord....it seems to pull in good vibes from outa nowhere. Peace...
  15. Nice vid/track Jinder!! This tune so reminded me of Ryan Adams Prisoner LP as it would fit right in. OK, Im sold...looking forward to purchasing your CD.
