"I have an '04 Coastline Folk.  It's one of my favorite guitars.  It hangs over the bed.  If it ever needs a neck reset, it's a bolt on.  Not an easy job, but it's not a throw away epoxied neck."

Another 'Gull Lands in The Gullies

Really couldn't resist - a '04 Seagull S6+ Folk, in very nice shape - only visible flaw is a grooved-out section the size of a Loonie (Cdn. $ coin) on the lower bout, where the P.O. removed a butterfly sticker. The fretboard looks like it could drink a quart of lemon oil, but the neck seems to be in great shape - with one problem. The bass E string, when fretted on the 12th fret, was just totally dead; as in THUNK. When I got it back here, I gave the 13th fret a few sharp raps on that side with…See More

This story has a happy ending, folks, and I'll start with it. After working for three weeks to painstakingly restore Bryan Sutton's flood damaged Banjo Killer, Shin Ichikawa finally got to test drive it today! The entire shop stopped working to watch this exciting moment, after which Shin received a standing ovation (well, we were all standing anyway). …

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. I am amazed at how cleanly both bindings look.  Some finish touch up will be required, but the overall appearance is more than…
