Kacey Musgraves Gibson'

Recommended Posts

I agree those tuner buttons look a little funky. And when the camera catches the guitar from the side, the glare from the pickguard makes it look like it might be one of those 'flubber' guards.

But it all looks good on her.

Her tuners look great. Not sure about the guitars though...

 

I'm guessing J-45? Not sure EA will approve of the tuner buttons though [wink]

Sadly I missed her recent UK tour

Thank you MP. I've only seen her on TV & right now I don't remember if she even played a guitar on stage.

Got really nice GREAT legs though! [biggrin]

gave her new release, pageant material, a listen today- good stuff

 

Both her albums are great, but I'm really liking Pageant material. Just bummed that I'd booked a holiday when both she & Mandolin Orange were touring the UK :-(

Hmm. The headstock and tuners and pickguard say Southern Jumbo... The tulips rule out Standard. The pickup.. (Some kind of Baggs). And lack of banner seems to rule out SJTV... Lovely guitar for sure?

Nope. Everything but the tuners says J-45. If it's a vintage guitar--and I think it might be--it's a 1955 to 1960-ish J-45. Stenciled block logo, post-'54 pickguard, 20-fret neck. Nothing SJ about it.

 

Edit: looked at it again on full-screen on my big desk monitor. It's definitely vintage--you can see checks and finish irregularities on the top, even though it's not a high-def video. I'll stick with the 1955-early 1960's timeline.

 

I've always liked a girl with a tattoo or a ring in her nose. She's already proved she's capable of making a rash decision......

57 J45 according to the eatlier post....

 

Good news for the band is getting the job on a highly paid tour, then the bad news : ya have to wear a peuce outfit designed by the drummer?

Moral: Never judge a guitar but its pickguard....

 

 

Pickguard actually looks right for the year. Only the tuners are wrong, but other than the strings, they're the easiest thing to change out on the guitar.

 

I had trouble concentrating on the details of the guitar, for some reason. Must be the white boots.

for those who are still debating what guitar, here it is straight from kacey

Music city Pickers gets a lot of nice guitars.

 

A lot of people obsess over earlier Gibsons, but those mid/late 1950's J-45's and SJ's are comfortable to play, and can be very punchy. They often lack the sweetness and sustain of Bozeman (or Kalamazoo) guitars built with scalloped top braces, but they've got a lot of character.

 

They are great guitars for accompanying singers.
