  1. This has happened on several of my new Gibson acoustics as well as electrics, The deal is the nitro cellulose finish hasn't completely cured so you get a haze where your arm rests on the guitar. I buffed mine out with a cotton cloth to remove the haze. As indicated above, leave the guitar out or the case open. Generally takes around 2 months for things to settle.
  2. Newbie here enjoying the forum. If you like the Waltz, then be sure to check out "Love for Levon". May have to buy the blue ray CD as most of the stuff on youtube is cell video. There are some bad reviews for the sound quality but I got mine 3 months ago and it's fine.
  3. Very, very nice Anne. A well picked song with interesting lyrics. Less than 10% of the folks on this forum could play that song as well as you and even less could write one that good (I know I can't!). Please share some more. LCB
  4. In my humble opinion, the guy does a great job playing that song (voice leaves a lot to be desired and the song is hard as hell to play-I've been working on it for 3 weeks and ain't close). I saw Browne play live two Sundays ago at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center. Man, what a show. He had about fifteen acoustics on stage and played just about all of them. At one point, he pulled out the vintage Roy Smeck and hit the opening riff to Something Fine and I thought I'd died and gone to heaven - the sound was soooo sweet! Later on he picked up the Gibson JB model and did These Days. That guitar sounded almost as good as the Smeck. I've played three of the Gibson JB guitars and all played and sounded great (started my new company a year ago and don't have any disposable cash or one would be in my stable). I respectfully disagree with the folks that compare this guitar to a J-45. They don't sound or play even remotely the same. I will buy one of these as soon as I can. Hope ya'll enjoy this (I believe its been posted here before): Best, LCB
  5. Every so often I get the urge to strap on the LP (2006 black beauty reissue), stick the ear plugs in, turn it up (1965 blackface twin) and rattle the walls. Mostly mid-late '60's rock and '50's blues with some Pearl Jam and others thrown in. No petal distortion - just that generated by a good cranked tube amp. I also jam with a couple bands in town when the mood strikes. It's good for your soul!! Peace, LCB
  6. I don't believe Bob's not interested - he's just not sure of the words and phrasing. It's certainly evident that there was no rehersal! You are right - someone is slightly out of tune - can't tell which, but I believe it's Bob. It's hard to tune acoustics together when the wind is blowing 50 mph! Anyway, the VM songs I currently play in public are: Into the Mystic (this is a definate crowd pleaser - "Hark, now, hear the sailor's cry, Smell the sea and feel the sky, Let your soul and spirit fly, into the mystic!)and Tulepo. Peace, LCB
  7. Don't know about Montana but I do know that Gibson's Nashville Custom Shop is using laminated (stacked) rosewood fretboards on the 2012 LP Historics. Everyone on the LPF is raising hell - and rightfully so. LCB
  8. Not sure - but I don't believe he's playing a JB sig. Just doesn't look or sound like one. I've had the good fortune to play 3 - 1 at Bailey Bros in Birmingham, AL (one of the best sounding and playing guitars I've ever played) and 1 each at Guitar Centers in ATL and North Charleston, SC. I would have bought each one of them if I had the $$$. Wonderful sounding and playing instruments. All of the JB sigs I've seen in person and online have a sunburst top and different fretboard inlays than the one he's playing. What little you can see of the sides don't look like walnut. To me - that guitar looks and sounds like some bad *** rosewood. Any opinions on which model it is or isn't? LCB
  9. Red Solo Cup -Just kidding! How about Jackson Brown: These days I sit on corner stones And count the time in quarter tones to ten, my friend Don't confront me with my failures I had not forgotten them LCB
  10. If you have more than 1 guitar, you should consider a room humidifier. Mine automatically maintains 45% RH - no fuss or mess. Just have to remember to keep water in it. LCB
  11. Hurt written by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails and covered by Mr. Johnny Cash. - Reznor video. - Cash video (I can't watch this without crying). I play the Cash version and substitute EAD# for EAC in the A Minor chord - gives it a real haunting sound. Sorry, don't know how to make the chords position over the words correctly. Am C D Am C D Am I hurt myself today, to see if I still feel C D Am C D Am I focus on the pain, the only thing thats real C D Am C D Am The needle tears a hole, the old familiar sting C D Am C D G Try to kill it all away, but I remember everything Chorus: Am F C G What Have I become, my sweetest friend Am F C G Everyone I know, goes away in the end Am F C G And you could have it all, my empire of dirt Am F G Am I will let you down, I will make you hurt Am C D Am C D Am I wear this crown of thorns, upon my liars chair C D Am C D Am Full of broken thoughts, I cannot repair C D Am C D Am Beneath the stains of time, the feeling disappears C D Am C D G You are someone else, I am still right here Chorus with this Outro C D Am C D Am If I could start again, a million miles away C D Am C D Am(hold) I would keep myself, I would find a way. Peace, LCB
  12. Dude - You are so - so right about the impact of string sound when checking out a guitar. Most Guitar Centers and other major retailers are terrible about maintaining strings. There is nothing worse than picking up a beautiful guitar to play and finding dead strings. Most of the small, quality shops I frequent put Elixer lights on all of their guitars. I play the Elixer lights and medium lights on all of my guitars. To me - they sound great and last a long time. LCB
  13. I hear you about pics. I'm travelling on business right now and will post some this weekend. LCB
