cunningham26 Posted January 17, 2012 Report Share Posted January 17, 2012 Hi, First and introduction- I usually hang in the Epi forum but am looking to get my first gibson acoustic soon. I have an epi sheraton as my main electric, which I absolutely love, as well as a '46 L48 that i equally love for blues and soft, folky stuff. Then an epi acoustic im looking to upgrade. You guys here are a huge wealth of knowledge, and so I turn to your expert opinions! I did a search and went back a few pages, but couldnt find exactly what I'm looking for. I've got my sights set on a 2008 J50 with a k&k country western passive pickup. I played it a few weeks ago and absolutely love it. it has the white gotoh tuners, and looks as though it's in like with the modern classic/TV styling, though i couldnt find information that it was released under that brand. Does anyone have experience with one of these later releases, or with the pickup? I've never used a passive pickup so i dont even know what that entails. Just from looking around it seems like an average price for a used j50/j45, and the owner claims it has been set up recently, and i couldnt find any issue with it when playing (for about 5-10min). still probably going to try to talk him down, but any idea's on market value of these? any info is appreciated, thanks!
