Hi, new to the forum

I just purchased my first Gibson acoustic, a 2018 J15. It was also my first time ordering an acoustic guitar online (reputable online retailer) so I hope it's a good one. I never really felt comfortable buying a specific guitar without trying first, but have played other J15's before and got a good deal on one. It's supposed to arrive Wednesday. Can't wait! I've been playing many years & have owned many different brands both electric & acoustic. Of these were some Epiphone acoustics but never a Gibson. I have always wanted a J45 but always way over budget. Then when the J15 came out s few years ago & I was able to try them at a local store it has been on my GAS radar ever since!

Welcome to Gibson Talk and congrats on the new purchase. I've never purchased a guitar online so I don't know what one should expect.
However, unless they throw the box around at UPS or FedEx etc, it should be ready to go right after you unpack it.

Hi and welcome to this place.

Unfortunately it's getting more and more difficult to find good guitar shops so buying online is becoming the norm.

Luckily my guitar buying days are over, but if they weren't I would try to find a shop so I could try before buying.

Anyway good luck

Welcome to Gibson-Talk! I hope you love your new friend!
Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul.
Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.
