  1. New guitar tab: The First Cut Is the Deepest One of his first attempts at R&B as an “Otis Reddis sort of thing,” penned by Cat Stevens at the tender age of just 17 years old, turned out to be a milestone composition so popular that it would become a hit single time and again not only for the composer himself but many different artists, most notably Rod Stewart (1977). The original 1967 studio recording had (Big) Jim Sullivan on lead guitar, John Paul Jones on bass, Dougie Smith on drums and quite possibly Mike Hurst, then Cat’s producer at Decca Studios, on rhythm guitar. In 2014 Yusuf / Cat Stevens would perform a more intimate sittee version for solo acoustic guitar, a Gibson J-200, and vocals at the NPR Music Tiny Desk concert, which we chose to transcribe here.
  2. Are those two the same? I checked the other online dealers that offers the J-45 EC Studio and other dealers that offers the AJ-220SCE. The stock pictures for both the J-45 EC Studio and AJ-220SCE have the 'AJ' printed on the headstock. I purchased the J-45 EC Studio and it does not have the 'AJ' writing on the headstock. Both are using the Manufacturer Part Number EE2SVSNH3 on the online dealers' websites. Image files are too big so I use IMGUR. Did I received an brand new and authentic Epiphone? Thank you.
  3. Hello all - Recently purchased a J-45 Studio Rosewood Burst. Due to the combined jack and guitar pin my existing selection of guitar straps don't fit securely over the pin and a bit nervous about the strap falling off and potentially causing major damage to the guitar ! Would welcome any recommendations for a particular strap and locking system. Many thanks in advanced for your feedback ! Best regards, Colin
  4. I came to this forum shortly after I bought what has become my favorite guitar of all the literally hundreds of guitars I have owned, a 2005 J-45 Historic Collection. I've posted YouTube videos of it before, and a couple of Soundcloud clips, but today I'm here to point you towards my debut album, Midnight Sunroom. You can hear it via Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, YouTube Music, Deezer, Bandcamp, iHeartRadio, etc. It's my contribution to the late night solo acoustic guitar and voice genre, and I hope its field-recording-confessional immediacy transports its listeners to an intimate late night encounter with a hatful of songs spanning three decades.
  5. Wondering how may years Gibson's Custom Shop made the John Hiatt Signature model J-45's for? I heard it started in 2010 and only 100 were made according to Gibson archive site, but they never stated how many years they were produced, and if there were only 100 every year?? Anyone out there know? I've seen one for sale on a website when decoding the serial number it appears to be a 2012. Wondering how rare these are, as this was the first one I've ever seen come up for sale. Thank You all in advance for your responses.
  6. Anyone played one of these yet? Im looking for a bigger/fuller neck compared to the 2018 standard j45 I have. It says 50s style "round"on these but im wondering how it compares to something like the True Vintage J45, or an R8/R9. Cheers!
  7. I’m a player of 38 years, but I finally took the plunge with a Gibson J-45 Studio!
