  1. Well, today I received my D-28 '37 AA....really flipping awesome guitar... it is second by a hair line to my Hummingbird...
  2. Play-ability, and sound. My Hummingbird is hands down the best guitar I have...
  3. Wanted to share a guitar I bought...by the way the Hummingbird is still my favorite, but this is a close second... Just want to make sure not violating the forum rules... I don't see an area here for other instruments...
  4. Does it have the serial number engraved on the back of the headstock?
  5. What is good price to pay for one of these MINT? Thanks guys
  6. I had an "issue" with the A note buzzing. Posted here for help and was able to address the problem. At the same time I sent Gibson a message, they replied asking to take to an authorized repair center....I replied saying the nearest one was over an hour from me (which I actually called and never received a call back)...immediately they replied asking for my address and copy of the receipt. I sent to them, received an email within 24hours with a shipping label. That is what to expect when you spend money on a company and they CARE! Will I continue buying Gibsons? Heck yeah, they value me as a customer AFTER SALES! Note: I sent them a message sating I was not going to ship back the guitar, the issue was addressed. BUT I was really appreciative and impressed with the quality of their support!
  7. Thanks guys, thanks for supporting my newbie question!
  8. It happens only when fretted and going up the neck gets worse
  9. There is rattling sound coming from the A string, towards the bridge...you can notice throughout the video but specifically around 30sec https://photos.app.goo.gl/Fj1Wnr8qcECzBdcq5 Suggestions?
  10. Hey guys, do we get anything from Gibson after doing the online registration? i.e. Martin sends a card with your registration information, Taylor sends you magazine... anything form Gibson? Thanks
  11. Holy smokes batman, that is a lot of guitars...lol. Enjoy them in good health!!!

    Really nice, congrats!!!
  13. Aha, called you attention...lol. Just wanted to share my opinion - AND I know there are many different likes, dislikes, brand fanboyism.... For me, they are both great on their own way. They do sound very different, play very different, look very different, and that is what makes them both great. However; I did have an enlightenment with Gibson. I have found that (IMO, FOR ME) fits more with what I am looking for in sound, and play-ability . Looks is a toss, I like the looks of both Gibson and Martins. Why do I feel this way? (1) I absolutely LOVE the short scale on the dreads (2) I absolutely HATE the 1 11/16" nut width (feel my fingers are cramped fretting the neck), really like the 1.75" on the new Martins, BUT found the sweet spot for me on the 1.725" of the Gibson I have. (3) I am really enjoying the "thump" sound of the Gibson To this date I have had numerous Martin, Taylor and now Gibson guitars. I can say my favorite guitar is my HB, followed by the J45 and then the Martin D-28 (I have had two D-28s and one HD-28). At the end of the day, both Gibson and Martin make fantastic guitars - comparing them to each other is apples to oranges; it boils down to what plays better on one's hands and sound's better on one's ears. Taylor makes great guitars too, but I don't feel their sound appealing to me. Again, personal feeling!
  14. Here she is....also along my other hog guitars. The three most iconic Mahogany guitars - Bird, J45 and D-18
  15. I have now two Gibsons, a TV Hummingbird and a TV J45. I would like to get one more, then I am DONE. My question is a Dove or the SJ200 Vintage????
  16. Best year is 2019...that this the year of mine 😁
  17. very helpful @billroy. I just bought one today, 2019 J45 Vintage with the baked adi top and the VOS.... these Gibs are addicting 🙂
  18. Done pics added. Thanks for the tip @62burst.
  19. Mine is the TV. Trying to get pics up now...
  20. Guys, got the Gibson GAS. Trying to negotiate on a 2017 J45 vintage (Adi baked, VOS, thin finish...). What is a good price for these? Thanks
  21. One thing for sure, I will be hard pressed (a $$$ deal I could not resist) to buy another guitar without thin finish. This guitar is sooooo light, it rings for days, trebles are there, bass is there... Compared to my D-18, both are very very different (more to come...) and both are great ... I think I like the Bird best, but I think it is because of how the thin finish affects the sound...which means I need a D-18 thin finish to compare 🤔 Another thing, I am in love with the short scale on a dread...holy smokes Batman, my favorite guitar is my 000-28, which is so much fun because of the scale length...on top of the GE brace and adi top of course... anyways, wow....the short scale on a dread is awesome 🥰
  22. Thanks guys. Do you know what brand/model comes from factory?
  23. Really nice, congrats and enjoy it in great health!
