  1. Will most Kluson 3-on-a-plate tuners drop right into the headstock of a J-45? Those Grover mushroom/kidney things are sh@t.

    Did this happen recently? Why so cheap? Is one of the issues that a neck reset is needed...or cracks?

    Has anybody ever seen a decent Gibson acoustic in a pawn shop in the past several years?
  5. So that being said, you would buy the older guitar, say, the 2009 over the 2017?
  6. Suppose you bought 10 used J-45 Standards from ten different online resources. All appointments being equal, how many guitars do you believe you would find to sound poorly? Granted, there might be a clear rating of all ten, best to worst. But how many of these do you believe would make you say, “yuck...i’d never want this J-45.” (and, yes, please keep your “i’d never buy without playing it,” responses, and pizz off.)
  7. What is the difference between a Gibson J-45 Standard Sunburst and a Gibson J-45 Standard Montana Sunburst?
  8. I don't know what I'm talking about, however, the link I shared is what prompted me to ask this initial question. The person is calling this a "2014 Gibson J-45 Burst," not using any words such as STANDARD, CUSTOM, etc. I simply want to know what model that guitar is, and if the seller is using his wording in an official/appropriate manner.
  9. Yeahhhh....that thread spikes many of my talking points, but it does not address the direct question. plus...nobody wants to wade through the quagmire of the never-ending-posted-topic that you pinned.
  10. Does anybody have DEFINITE opinions about the single-best material? Anyone tried "fossilized mammoth." (is this real??? hahaha) ( yes, it is)
  11. What model is this? https://reverb.com/item/33241480-gibson-j-45-2014-burst Is the person listing this just a wing nut, or am I missing something?
  12. Has anyone played a Standard since 2000 and thought it was better than a TV? if you were forced to buy a Standard or a True Vintage (money not being an issue), which would you pick, and why? (and yes, we all know about “the one that sounds best,” but this is hypothetical.
  13. No, I mean would the word BURST be on the soundhole sticker? When someone sells a guitar they’ll usually type Gibson J-45 Standard ... or Gibson J-45 True Vintage. This guy typed “2014 Gibson J-45 Burst” Im asking if thats an actual name or just some poetic license on the seller’s part?
  14. I would also het rid of those ugly and heavy mushroom tuning machines and replace with some high quality high ratio cream button tuners.
  15. I saw a listing that read Gibson J-45 Burst I understand “burst/sunburst” as in conversation, about the paint job, but is it an actual word in model names? Is this person accurate in their titling of item for sale?
