If so, did it have that authentic and wonderful Gibson thump? I know this is typical for new guitars, but the spruce top looks quite pale. Can I expect it to darken to that gorgeous amber so associated with the
  4. Hi - can anyone tell me when Gibson changed the shape of the J-50 from rounded ( James Taylor style) to more of a flat top? Thanks J
