  1. That's the nicest looking top I've seen on any of these! Very excited for you! However, waiting until "the middle of next week" is not acceptable.
  2. I recently sold a '46. It took about a week but in the first 2 days I received two full price offers from Canadian buyers. There would be high demand for this guitar.
  3. If you don't own a guitar that is deserving of worship, keep looking.
  4. I believe that used one is $500 more than Wildwood charged for a new one. Telluride Music gets some nice guitars but pricing is 100% Tourist Town.
  5. Wildwood is crazy busy ... It will be worth your effort to call them because you will get a price over the phone that will be hundreds less than Sweetwater. Wildwood's stock .. https://wildwoodguitars.com/product-category/acoustics/gibson-acoustics/super-jumbo/
  6. Guitar is located in Colorado. Cheers
  7. Thank you, Roger. We all know there is no such thing as extra cash 🙂
  8. Cutting way back, really nice J45 from 1946 $6,500 with 90s J45 case, $6,700 with upgraded case https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=587805
  9. I just skipped to the end like I always do with these two, great sounding guitar.
  10. This is good, really good. And, I think you are my favorite song picker. This one's a gem.
  11. Another way to look at it ... If 100 people played all 10 guitars, how many of those 10 would be chosen by someone as a favorite? My guess would be 7. Or more.
  12. Love the way you capture the Greg Groove, Sal. This is not the first time. Further In is a Masterpiece ... cheers!
  13. Stunning progress, your hard work is paying off. Writing lyrics like these in a second language ... respect due.
  14. Wildwood Guitars just got a 1942 in and they list the nut as standard 1.72" on that one
  15. How I would love to jump into a pile of this entire new series and emerge with the winner.
  16. I used to think a capo is just a capo, then I bought a G7 model 3 with ART, couldn't get it not to buzz on multiple guitars. Your guitar could be in need of a setup as suggested. Try moving the capo position very close to/ on the fret to see if that helps.
  17. I spent a few minutes with one of these, very nice guitars. I was a bit surprised at the price and thought it a very good value.
  18. If I paid $2500 for this guitar it would go to Reverb where I would list it for $5300 and expect to get at least $4500 within 6 months. Listed at $4K it would sell in a few days.
  19. 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.
  20. 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!
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
