  1. Up for sale is a 2012 Gibson Les Paul Junior Special in Wine Red. Dual Gibson P90's. Stop tail with tune-o-matic bridge. Kluson Deluxe tulip tuners. Original 375k pots have been replaced with 500K's. Original switch was broken off and has been replaced. Some dings and scratches throughout, typical of a used guitar. Some buckle rash on the back. You can feel it with your finger but doesn't go through the finish. Hard to photograph. On each side of the headstock there are spots where the finish reacted with a stand. I will post more pictures as I can take them. More pics here: http://www.tdpri.com/classifieds/gibson-les-paul-special.4887/ It's a really nice guitar, set up beautifully and plays great, just not what I'm looking for these days. Comes with Gibson branded soft case. Asking $675 shipped in the continental USA. Open to trades. I can take Paypal or Venmo. I check PM's but it's easier to contact through email. davenumber2 at gmail dot com
  2. I have to use a thumb pick for ragtime/Travis picking type stuff if palm muting to get that vamping sound. I just can’t seem to get it right with just my thumb and get any volume. Thumb pick took a while to get used to but it’s second nature now and gives good volume from the bass strings.
  3. .73 is a bit on the thin side for me but I’m all about the idea of shaping up a 2.00 pick to replace a $40 one.
  4. I like the red finish but I can’t get past the pick guards.
  5. Thought I’d share...
  6. That break angle and saddle height looks fine. How high is the action?
  7. I don't know how that can be discerned without a photo from the side of the saddle. Did I miss that picture?
  8. If it's just an old Harmony I'd just bolt the bridge back on and not care what it looks like to see if you can make it functional but that's me. I wouldn't do it to a nice guitar though. Most of the cheap Harmonys didn't survive in playable condition.
  9. Guild for sure. According to Wikipedia it's a JF65-12.
  10. The neck is also bound. There may be other minor cosmetic differences but I'm no expert.
  11. The CW was a natural version of the Southern Jumbo as the J-50 is the natural version of the J-45.
  12. No, I mean round shouldered. The CW was originally round shouldered and was changed to square in the early sixties. I am aware of the Sheryl Crow model and other square shouldered reissues.
  13. Has Bozeman ever done a reissue of the round-shouldered Country Western?
  14. Here's pretty much what mine sounds like if anyone is interested.
  15. Funny you mention the Harmony, they also have a "Bakersfield" version, echoing the Harmony Buck Owens. https://www.elderly.com/catalog/product/view/_ignore_category/1/id/145336/s/recording-king-bakersfield-limited-edition-acoustic-guitar/
  16. I will also say the setup was great out of the box. Low action and a tall saddle. I haven't had to adjust anything.
  17. It's an homage to a Gibson, obviously taking design elements from the L-Century. Picked this up the other day and it's the most fun guitar I've purchased in a while. Great little blues/rag picker. It's a Recording King Century 33. That is all.
  18. I think he's talking about a J-45 copy, not the LG-2's.
  19. Judging by the back of the neck and the back lower bout it used to be red.
  20. If anyone out there is looking... Not affiliated with the seller. https://reverb.com/item/9982627-gibson-wm-45-1999-natural
