"I went to see Warren Haynes and Gov't Mule up in New Hampshire last week, and you should have seen the array of sweet vintage Gibson electrics this guy busts out. Explorers, Firebirds, Firebird non-reverse, ES355, and numerous classic Les…"
"Yikes! Man, what a mess!
I'm happy to say however that both my Elite 6768 and Adamas Millennium are completely spotless inside. Pehaps they figured they needed a bit more quality control since you can clearly see the entire insides of the sound…"
"Here are some pics of my Gibson J-40. Bought it back in 1988 for $60, it's in need of some restoration to repair 2 cracks that have opened up on the top. I don't know much about it, serial number is 674487, and it has…"
"I've heard people rave about these 86' Collectors guitars. Would make a great purchase for someone if the price is right.
I'm sinking all my fiddle money into fixing up an old Gibson these days though, so I'll have to pass..."
"My first guitar was a gift from my aunt -- a mid 60s Alvarez student guitar she gave to me when I was about seven. It actually used to belong to Jonathan Edwards. My aunts and uncles were always playing acadian folk songs on guitar and mandolin at…"
"I'm sure there are a number of great people in that area.
Actually a buddy of mine lives in the bay area and hand builds a line of guitars out in his shed called "Barron Wesley" (his son's first and middle names). Beautiful…"
"Mark, what a kind offer. ;-)
Actually, I live in the Bay Area, so I take the Santa Cruz to its birthplace at the Santa Cruz Guitar Company in Santa Cruz. I do need some work done to the J-50 -- finally needs a neck reset and the pick guard is…"
"Took it to Mouradian Guitars yesterday, what a shop Jon Mouradian said it looks as if the neck alignment was probably off right from the factory (hence the "SECOND" stamp on the neck), just a touch off base, and that most likely led…"
"Looks to be the original Gibson pinless bridge (J-45 had a pinned bridge). Feed through from the back, same as my Ovations. I looked it over very carefully afraid that it would be cracked between the holes (making it garbage), but there are no…"
"Thanks for posting the photos. Cool to see the object of our discussion.
How do the strings go through the bridge? Is there an opening on the bridge on top of the guitar or do you run them in from inside? I have a couple of…"
Hi Mark, welcome among my friends :) You've got a pretty nice Adamas Millenium! It's a limited series, isn't it? The only Ovation knock-off I own is an Applause ukulele, looking like a mini Adamas! Feel free to listen to my music, share, comment, or whatsoever.
