  1. Hello everybody, I have a J-160E, When I purchased it in 1983, the Guitar store (Knute Koupee) had its date listed as a 1964 model . The number on the back of the head stock is 369563. It is a Heritage Cherry Burst with all the original parts, Kluson Deluxe tuners, P90 pick up, Vol & Tone pots and sprauge .022uf cap, ceramic bridge & rosewood saddle, Trapezoid inlays, etc.. I had to remove the pick up and controls because it wasn't working through my amp and had found that one of the coil wires was barely attached. I re-soldered the wire ( I am an electronic tech and took it to work to do the solder work) it now works better than before. What I also found was when checking out a P90 schematic there were two versions of wiring, a 50's version and a modern version. My guitars wiring is definitely a 50's wiring and explained to me why when adjusting the tone knob the Vol would change. My bigger question now becomes is this truly a 1964 or is an older guitar? I have had little luck with finding out the year based on the serial number 369563. I am hoping this forum will help me find out the exact year the guitar was made. Thank you all in advance.
  2. Hello everyone Recently I discover some marks on my J-45 I dont know if it was a mold or mildew. I live in Indonesia with high humidity across the year. I attach some of the picture, I dont know if you guys can see them, it is a white-ish marks on the finish and only presence in good-lighting environment. I already clean it with some gibson pump polish but its not working. if anyone knows how to remove that please let me know thankyou

  4. I have a Yamaha FS100C acoustic guitar.In website it says Fingerboard Radius: R400mm (15 3/4") what does it mean I can't understand as I am a beginner.I want to get a capo for it, so i want to know if it has a flat fretboard/fingerboard or radiused fretboard/fingerboard.I bought Daddario NS Artist Capo but D string buzzes a lot even if capo tension is increased somewhat (standard tunning).To check capo pressure i am picking strings downwards just exactly as how we do when tuning a guitar and D string buzzes a lot.I don't want to keep high tension on the strings by tightening the capo a lot as it would defeat the purpose of getting an somewhat expensive capo with screw adjustment for tension too.I am using Gibson light 11 - 52 gauge strings on the guitar after i tried to make the capo work with a little tension adjustment in the screw had no luck, and strings got out of tune after some trials.I have been looking in between NS Artist Capo & Tri-Action Capo from Daddario. Please help, I can return NS Artist Capo and get Tri-Action Capo if its more appropriate for acoustic guitars and for my Yamaha FS100C.Thanks
