S6 Folk vs Coastline Cedar Folk

First..mea culpa for initially sending this as a message. I'm truly sorry.In the local Craigslist there is a Seagull S6 Folk and a Seagull Coastline Cedar Folk offered for sale (different sellers).  From what I can gather the S6 Folk is an older model that is no longer offered.

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.
