  1. Hello my fellow Gibson lovers. Great to be here finally. My name is JT. Live in Denver, grew up in Michigan. I am on a quest to discover the origins of a very special Gibson guitar that has been in my family for a really long time. Any advice is greatly appreciated! My grandfather Ed Weston was an employee of Gibson Kalamazoo, MI and Elgin, IL from the years 1965-1973. From gathering family history of this extraordinary man from relatives, he managed the string department in KZoo and was plant manager in Elgin! Amazing! Enough about family, although it is an important part of

  3. Hey guys, I have a 2018 j15 in a walnut burst that I absolutely love. Though I am not a big fan of the mini grovers... I am debating getting cream color tulips with either gold or nickel hardware. I Know I would need a bushing kit and stuff for kluson but will changing to kluson reduce value from this guitar 20 years down the road? Has anyone done this tuner conversion and am I the only one that loves kluson on gibson acoustic? Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated!
  4. I'm looking for any knowledge/insight you all can give into the Gibson J-200M series. Best I can tell, Gibson only makes these guitars every few years and in limited runs. My local music store has a 1991 Gibson J-200M. Spruce top. Maple neck. Flamed koa back and sides. I've searched online and cannot find another like it. What can you tell me about 1990s and J-200M's? Is this guitar one of a kind?
  5. Hi all! New member here, wondering if y'all could help with with this guitar. It's listed locally for $550, seems like a great deal if it's legit no? pickguard is on the wrong side I see that, but I don't know if the other markings are correct any help appreciated! Here's all the pics https://imgur.com/a/IbTFwTG (they were too big to upload here) Thanks
  6. Ok I’m trying to identify a Gibson acoustic. I can find no stickers or stamps etc showing a serial number. My dad was born in 1938 and said it was given to him when he was about 12, so thinking it’s from around 1950. Including some images if anyone is able to assist. It was mostly never played and in an old case for probably 50 years. My wife had someone work on the bridge about 20 years ago in hopes I’d play it. I strum on it and pick some chords but I’m no guitar player. Anyway if anyone could help me identify this guitar model and around the year it was made I’d appreciate it
  7. A while ago, I mentioned on these forums that I was looking into getting an Epiphone AJ45. After the resounding support, my interest was definitely piqued. Now I’m in awe of my new AJ45! I think my beloved Texan is going to be sitting in its case for a while as the AJ45 has become my go-to acoustic. It’s simply an incredible guitar! I record with it, I do (virtual) gigs with it, and I somehow feel like an elevated singer-songwriter with it... There’s so many reasons why the AJ45 is amazing! All Solid Wood I was considering this guitar, a
  8. I am considering purchasing this 1939 J-35. If it $ 5,000, do you guys purchase? Please tell me about the damage to the neck.

  10. My father in law found this Kramer acoustic electric bass while cleaning out his brothers apartment. It has the body of a Ferrington but the headstock is a Fender style. I haven’t been able to find anything else like it online. The number on the plate where the neck bolts on is F A8702.
  11. Hey folks, I’m strongly considering the (2015) AJ45 for my next slope shoulder dreadnaught. After doing lots of research, I’m impressed by the all-solid tone woods, the sound, and the positive responses people have had about the AJ45’s playability. I even kind of like the burnt toast sunburst finish. My main acoustic for the past four years has been the amazing Inspired By 1964 Texan. I love everything about it! So with this in mind, I’m wondering: Is the AJ45 a significant improvement over the Texan? Usually I’m all for getting more guitars 😉 But I’m wondering if th
  12. Hi can anyone help with a question on copy epiphone acoustic models pls? what does NA stand for in the model name? is it natural?
  13. Hi forum friends! I have an Epiphone EJ200 (Jumbo) Acoustic, Blonde with Gibson branding over the truss rod cover on the headstock. It's a 1997 model made at the Samick plant in South Korea. I am looking to buy some of the original bridge pins used in the guitar...or something near identical in appearance and dimension as well as hopefully sound!! Two of the original bridge pins are currently superglued after snapping and all of them are quite worn and gnarled now so I fear they are rapidly giving up the ghost! I have spent a year trying to find pins that match but with no succ
  14. Hey guys, found a j50 early 60’s reissue made in 2000 that seem to be in great condition, have not tried it yet. Debating selling my 2018 j15 walnut burst that i like to buy that piece. What can you guys tell me about the value of this guitar going forward. Im pretty sure they are the same scale lenght and nut widht??? Anyone know if they are the same neck profile too? Heard the reissue sometimes have chunkier necks. Anything else I should watch for with these early 2000’s j50’s
  15. Hi There, Just wondering what the "average" cost would be to repair the old fretboard on a 1960's J45 so I can get an idea before I take it to a repair shop and they try to quote me 10k (jk but you get the picture). The neck and other parts are in good shape, that is the only thing on it that needs help from years of playing. I would want the same wood (if anyone knows what they used in 1964 off the top of their head please let me know that as well) as a replacement. Thanks!
  16. Got this from a local guy in Fort Worth Texas. amazing guitar. anyone still own theirs?
  17. Hello. I have a Gibson that was givin to me in the early 90s. I have no idea what all it is. The only numbers I can find on it are stamped in the back of the head and are 500252. Can you help?
  18. Hi, I was hoping someone might be able to help me with a problem I’m having identifying a guitar. I recently came across this obviously extremely old acoustic guitar. The Gibson headstock seems to match that of a mid 40s L-Series. The problem I’m having in identifying it Is because it seems to have at some point been given, and I can’t overstate this, the single worst paint job I may have ever seen on anything that’s had paint on it. It appears that the re-painting has been done on he body, as well also on the headstock. I realized after I took these pictures that I didn’t take pict
  19. Hi, I was thinking of getting my dad's old acoustic repaired/ restored for his 60th birthday. I am not that well versed in this area. I've attached some pictures of the guitar. I could really use a hand determining what it actually is and if it would be worth repairing. The guitar has definitely seen better days. The serial number is 567013. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
  20. Hi all, I’m new to the forum and I apologize in advance if I break any rules that I’m unaware of. I would really appreciate any help in identifying a classical guitar that may possibly be a Gibson. I’m very wary as there are many counterfeits in the market. I’ll try to add photos later, but I’m looking at a guitar for sale and thinking about purchasing it if it’s a real Gibson. The seller says that they’re selling it as a copy because it doesn’t have any sticker/stamp in the sound hole (and they can’t be responsible if it turns out to be fake). They show the serial
  21. Hello, all! This is a guitar owned by my girlfriend's father. From what I have been able to research, I think it may be from 1948, but I am reluctant to even say that. Any input on year or model is greatly appreciated! If I need to get better pics I can ask him. Thanks in advance!
  22. What do you guys think? Solid brazilian rosewood back and sides or laminated?
  23. Hello all! My brother has a “Gibson” that was gifted to him. We aren’t sure it’s a real Gibson, but do want to know! Tuning pegs and headstock seem off, the logo looks like a decal, and no sticker/tag in the inside, just a “G” at the base of the neck and a serial number on the back of the headstock. Any info helps! Unfortunately, I can’t upload pics of it? It won’t let me! i have an old email address that if you email me, I can send you pics of it at Mowe5303@lbc.edu (college email)! Any help helps! Thanks!
  24. Hello! Here's a bluesy acoustic guitar instrumental that I recorded. Hope you like it! https://youtu.be/mpDF9UQ_xKA
  25. Trying to find what year this old Gibson acoustic is. It was my fathers. I believe it's either 1930's or 40's. Any suggestions? Sunburst, serial number 331. Possibly a J45?
