  1. From the historic collection to the news that Bozeman is expanding production, this is the kind of excitement that we hope for from Namm but rarely see. All the questions about how new management would handle the acoustic division have been answered ... in the best possible way.
  2. Nice to see current management understands that merch sales is a pot o'gold, make mine the script logo t. Looking forward to seeing much more cool stuff!
  3. Wildwood and CME charge out of state buyers sales tax, Music Villa does not. The initial phone quote is just a starting point but no way I'm going to consider buying from a dealer that starts off by quoting MAP. I was very surprised that ANY of those dealers quoted MAP as they have all been mentioned as good places to buy Gibsons. In the past I've chosen to pay CO sales tax (I live in CO) at Wildwood to enjoy hands on access to their incredible inventory, but the option to avoid tax on internet purchases is melting away.
  4. We hear this question all the time, here's a bit of an answer ... I called 4 dealers for a price on a new SJ-200 Vintage Sunburst, a guitar that carries an online advertised price of $5249. This is 20% less than "list" although the list price can only be found by visiting Gibson's website, none of the dealers refer to it. All quotes included shipping, paid with credit card. Name of the dealers and prices quoted: Music Villa $5249 Chicago Music Exchange $5249. Offered a 10% discount when it was obvious I wasn't a buyer at the quoted price. Wildwood Guitars $4299 Fuller's $5249. This surprised me a lot.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. That is a nice J200, I suspect he has a nice collection of old Gibsons but I've never seen anything written about it.
  10. This is fabulous thank you.
  11. Yes. After the honeymoon do you look forward to growing old together?
  12. I asked all three dealers for their "best price" ...
  13. LOL when is a "Legend" not a "Legend"
