Acoustic wanted

My advice, buy a Gibson J-45. I was thinking of selling mine a while back, but it's so great I just can't let it go, absolutely the best value Gibson available in my opinion.

Yup, seems a bit suspect, maybe it's not in good condition or something, but worth checking out, factory fitted pickup too, wouldn't expect it to last long if it's genuine.

I've offered a Taylor 410 CE koa back and sides. any feedback on these would be nice.

Dusty...I remember you trying to sell your j-45. What are they going for now?

Cheers

Dunno about the Taylors, looks nice enough.

I personally just don't like Taylors, I think they usually have bolt on necks don't they? Lots of people do though.

1100 for the J-45 at Peter Cook's which is where I bought mine 5 years ago. I was actually in London though so I got to test out a few first. Well worth it.

Interesting article. I took my J-45 out for the first time in ages the other day and stuck some new strings on it. I was amazed at how good it sounded, couldn't remember it sounding that good before. So I started wondering "Could it be 'mellowing' and 'ageing' already?" It's a 2002 model, but maybe it is.

I went to see the Martin D18. It was a Shanandoah (Spelling) model. Which has laminated back and....neck!!!. It sounded ok, but I was not convinced. Thanks for the numbers Dusty.
