Title: Gobson J-100extra
Post by: laughingskunk on September 29, 2004, 08:57:15 PM
Everytime I go to the Guitar Center I keep going back to this guitar. Its a jumbo Gibson with spruce top and maple back and sides. It has a wonderful mellow tone to me not to bright with just the perfect amount of bass. Sounds good fingerpicked and just blows me away when strummed. I tend to go pick less and gravitate to folky type music and alt country(everything from James Taylor, Radney Foster, The Eagles, Steve Earle, etc). Ive told myself I dont want a Gibson and certainly not a jumbo but havent found a guitar I like better yet-and not sure if I will. Anyone have experience with one of these. I believe its the cheaper version of the J-200 and has the beautiful moustache bridge and no pick guard. Is a litle more than wanted to pay, but if I see a sale or a used one... All the reviews I've seen have been great and having hard time talking myself out of it. Patrick
