Mini guitars how fantastic - the paypal address makes me smile and I always think of Felice and Boudleaux when I see "Rocky Top"

Re: Dwight Yoakam,

If you check out my profile photo, you can see I'm [oh so proudly!] playing my "Everly Brothers" J-185 black Gibson with J-200 "tortoise shell" pick-guards, "crown" inlayed fret-board and "moustache" bridge I had specially ordered from the Gibson factory way back in the 60s.

Apparently Mr. Yoakam had exactly the same idea sometime later. The Gibson Y2K "Dwight Yoakam" model has precisely those characteristics.

Thanx Chris! for expanding my post.

It's actually a Gibson J-180 [not a J-185]!

I think these have black, rather than "tortoise shell", Everly Brothers pick-guards and might be J-200s; but that is what I was after:

The "sometime later" I refer to is around 30 years!

LOL!

The internet is full of the Gibson demise, let us hope that something can be resolved.
