  1. 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 success. The pins are plastic, vintage yellowish colour with a black dot. For whatever reason the look and sound of the cheapish original pins are just perfect to my eyes and ears! However I know that lots of EJ200 players swap out the original pins for superior ones. Well, I would dearly love to buy those original bridge pins! If there are any EJ200 (Samick plant build) owners that have upgraded their pins, or who know of anyone who has upgraded their pins, and are happy to sell the original pins then please let me know! Or if anyone knows of replacement pins that match these then please do let me know! I'm in the UK but happy to purchase online from anywhere. I don't mind experimenting with other bridge pin materials so open to any suggestions! I just find a lot of replacement pins are shorter in length with a much larger head and don't seem to sound, sit or look right on the guitar to me. I have no idea what pins Epiphone used in the guitar but I cannot find matching ones for sale anywhere. I also have no idea what pins are used in the Gibson J200s but I haven't been able to track any of those down either. Thanks in advance for any help with this!!
  2. I'm considering purchasing this J-200 which I believe is a 1970 - 1972. Serial number engraved with Made In USA engraved on headstock is No. 727894. See pics here: https://www.pinterest.com/AngusYoung555/j200/ Played it yesterday and think it sounds good but a few small details seem off. First, the back of the guitar has two stickers instead of one. In my research, every single J-200 only has one running down center of the guitar. Second, the neck seems to be two pieces of wood, is this normal? Also, the joint in the back of the guitar is a slightly off - it doesn't line up so that it's perfectly smooth. Any thoughts about these issues? I don't think it's fake but the double sticker is odd. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi, about 4 months ago i bought a 1994 EJ-200 from a dealer in Gloucestershire, the action is very high on the guitar making it impossible to play it for long periods of time, hence why i am reluctant to take it gigging with me as i fell like it would kill my hands from cramp, i wondered if i could shave the saddle slightly to improve the action on the guitar and upon looking at it ive noticed there is not much if anything left to shave off. When looking at the nut i have realized that it is incredibly high and wondered if there is anything i can do to lower it, do i take it to get shaved or something, or what do i do? Can anyone help me?
  4. What’s the best way to find out a beginning asking price for several Gibson’s that I want to sell?
  5. Hello! I have been searching the web to find some information on the J-200 VS model. I am trying to find a value for it but am really struggling to find any information on it. It is a 2012 with no electronics. It also doesn't have the gold tuners. It has more vintage looking tuners. (pic attached) Could anyone help Identify this? Does "s" mean standard? Never had one of these so am trying to educate myself. 🙂 Any help is appreciated.
