Subject: RE: Gibson J300 any info please
I played one in Bozeman out of the custom shop a few years back. It had a wagon train inlaid on it's pick guard, a cattle drive up it's neck and a locomotive on it's headstock all done in abalone, pearl and turquoise and pearl on just about every border, as I recall. It's top was adirondack, back and sides were cocobolo and it had a 50K price tag. It had a beautiful, loud and ringing tone that didn't bear much relationship to the early-60's log of a J-200 I used to own.
