  1. Hi Winterfell1, Congratulations on the 67 SJ!!! I started this thread about my 67 SJ some time ago. I 've become used to the thin neck width and don't have any bad feelings about it. Does yours have the rosewood saddle or ceramic? Mine has the rosewood and I like it a lot. Maybe one day I might look for a ceramic just to see how it sounds. My guitar has the 4 pc top, but didn't have a "2" impressed in the back of the headstock, so I don't think the two conditions are related. All in all I love mine. Every time I pick it up, it makes me happy 🙂 It has a very balanced woody tone to it, very sweet sounding, perhaps a bit quiet, but I mainly play fingerstyle. I have another more recent post called "Sitting on the porch swing" and I added a fairly recent pic there if you want to look at it. This is the only acoustic Gibson I've ever owned, and so I have nothing else to personally compare it to, but I think it sounds fantastic, and I have the action quite low and so it's super easy to play! I hope you enjoy your new guitar! -Keith
  2. Great old song, and nicely done! I was singing along 🙂
  3. Hi Twang Gang, this is a 1967 Southern Jumbo. I was SUPER lucky to get it! It was owned by a man who bought it new and never learned to play, and it was in Time Capsule condition when he sold it to me in it's original case w/hang tag. It only has one blemish which is a small ding on the heel cap! Other than that, it has minimal nitro checking. The bridge is rosewood with adjustable rosewood saddle. It sounds wonderfully woody 🙂 Em, we've spoke before about this one, I've been out of touch for a while though, and just now getting back in touch.
  4. Thank you 62burst, trying your suggestion!
  5. Let me try again! https://imgur.com/a/jHd35nR
  6. I've been away for so long I don't remember how to share a pic... sheesh 😞
  7. Wanted to share a pic of my dear friend who has been keeping me company on the porch swing during this isolation! Hope the link works.. <blockquote class="imgur-embed-pub" lang="en" data-id="a/jHd35nR" ><a href="//imgur.com/a/jHd35nR">What a day for a daydream</a></blockquote><script async src="//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
  8. Very enjoyable cover Roger, thanks for sharing it! I believe that JD had some songs that could fall into that cheesey, sappy or whatever you might want to call it category, but there were other songs that for me personally were very pleasing and well written. Not everyone liked his voice, but I was always amazed at the power, the vibrato, the sweet soft high notes and sustain he had. The early album "Windsong" had some nice tracks on it, and one of my favorites is "Song of Wyoming" which to me is a great depiction of a true "Cowboy" and he does such a nice rendition of it. I always thought this one would be a good one to attempt... Give it a listen!
  9. Hello to all, I was looking through some videos of Tommy Emmanuel and had not seen this one before, it's so nice! I am uncertain which model he's playing, but it appears to be a J45 ? He plays so well and it really is an excellent way to hear this guitar put through it's paces a bit. I enjoyed it immensely :)
  10. Hello, I spend most of my time looking at the Acoustic Forum and mainly play acoustic guitar, but I also have a 2014 Epiphone 1960 Tribute Plus that I purchased in 2014. I am no expert, but I love this thing! I'm sure you already read the specs, and these were pretty well loaded with good stuff, pots, switches, GREAT pickups and an ever so lovely finish. Mahogany body with Carved maple cap and flame top.. I had to have the Vintage Sunburst, a thing of beauty to me :) Too bad you can't do an A/B comparison with them somewhere... I would imagine you won't go wrong either way! Here is mine on NGD...
  11. Thank you for the comments, you have a neat perspective, and that was a cool video clip too! I'm afraid I get too much lip on the mouthpiece sometimes as well, ha! But I do find it all fun and enjoyable for sure. My SJ has one of the infamous "Skinny Necks", but I don't mind it at all, it's fun to play and sounds pretty good I think.
  12. It's been a rainy Fathers Day and since it was just me and the dogs hanging around, I decided to try another stab at recording something with the Focusrite hardware playing my 1967 Southern Jumbo. So it wasn't the greatest execution, but fun anyway :) Happy Fathers Day to everyone!
  13. Hey Boyd! So here is how it turned out.. I powered up the iPad and looked around inside and found that it's a 2013 model with iOS 10.3.3 and it has to have iOS11 to run garageband. My iPad will only update to 10.3.3 so I'm out of luck it seems... So anyway, back to the Focusrite! :)
  14. Thank you Boyd, I'll have to look into this...
