  1. I'd only been playing for 3 years or so and hadn't caught the Gear Bug yet. I usually hit the Denver Folklore Center once a week checking out CDs and music books. They had a new J45 on the wall so I played it. Changed everything. That guitar had character, one that fit me just right. And the looks, oh my. I brought it home. Shortly after, I visited a shop that had 2 50's J185s. Had no idea guitars could sound, play AND look like that.
  2. Steve Goodman working the dry tone of an old Gibson during a fabulous performance ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyfjlwXsPpw&fbclid=IwAR0qGVVAfNjhN4jLI5aeBpxxVpN2xhElLQh-j2LyPpBBf-XbX_WMoRdm_3s&app=desktop
  3. I never leave Colorado in summer without a very good reason. This would fit the bill nicely, have a blast. Consider Greg Brown's Eugene for a listen, it just might turn into a regular on your trip's soundtrack. Cheers Dan
  4. Sitting in for some of a friend's set next week, so I've been playing the Santa Cruz D12, the only guitar I have with a pickup. Across The Great Divide, Pamela Brown, Ripple, Tom Russell's Blue Wing and Endless Sky by Chuck Pyle.
  5. That is a nice J200, I suspect he has a nice collection of old Gibsons but I've never seen anything written about it.
  6. This is fabulous thank you.
  7. Yes. After the honeymoon do you look forward to growing old together?
  8. I asked all three dealers for their "best price" ...
  9. LOL when is a "Legend" not a "Legend"
  10. Your banging of the Sweetwater drum intrigued me so I checked. Phone quotes on the J185 Vintage ... Sweetwater $4650, Wildwood $4200. Quote on Martin 000-30 Authentic ... Sweetwater $6599, Wildwood $5700, MFG $5150.
  11. Thanks for the education, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that there is more than one model sporting the "Legend" name. Here's the original Legend, newly arrived at Music Emporium, beautiful guitar. The usual $4200 priceI've seen on these. https://themusicemporium.com/new-arrivals/gibson-1942-j-45-legend-2016.7752
  12. While looking at past behavior from a perspective of current sensibility can be interesting, it is of course meaningless. Jefferson had slaves, we don't do that anymore. Exposing tales of abuse of power serves to instruct our current and future behavior.
  13. Never played one of these but I know lots of folks really like this model and it seems the others I've seen for sale used have been priced $4K+ https://www.chicagomusicexchange.com/listing/gibson-montana-limited-1942-j-45-legend-sunburst-2016-s012/18219418
