"Jud.......do you think (or know that) the current Coastline series with darker stained back/sides would be considered or the same as the old S6+ ?"

"My impression from looking at the catalogs for older Gulls is that the "+" indicates the darker "upgraded" finish on the back and sides as opposed to the finish on what is now called the S-6 Original."

"This is true ... original owner doesn't have to worry.  And the technique of setting the neck is a good one in theory, as long as it's done right during assembly. But, buyer beware on a used late model Seagull with the integrated set…"

"I have an '04 S6+ Folk I picked up some months ago for $175 Cdn. - needed a decent setup, and is now one of my favourite guitars. It has the wider Seagull neck, but it feels less 'chunky' than my S6 dread's does. Strung it with…"

"Strings & Beyond actually has 10% off of everything at the moment.  For example, that should make Elixir's about $12 USD and if you buy three packs, free shipping to Canada."

"Tony watch this video SEAGULL FACTORY TOUR at the 20:00 minute point.  I shows how they apply the epoxy in the slot, while letting the heel rest on the body free of glue. The bolts on current Seagulls are only there to hold the neck in…"

"I always thought the necks on Seagulls were still bolted on because of this statement they make on their website to this day: "It also produces the added advantage of a superior neck/body energy transfer because the neck is attached to the body…"

"I believe that the s6 had a different finish from the coastline.  The back of the s6 has a lighter stain where the grain pattern is visible. The coastline has a light brown stain.  The top may also be different. Both should have the…"

Day 16: The Banjo Killer slays again!

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly.
