Where does your Seagull nest while you are changing strings?

All my life I have been guilty of holding my guitars in some precarious manner while I change strings. Putting it on a bed is probably the safest place that I have ever changed strings but an awkward place to work. Otherwise it's been on the kitchen table propped up with towels or with the neck between my knees while I sit in a chair. I am afraid that I am going drop a guitar and cause some damage one of these days. If you have a safe comfortable set-up for doing your string changes, I would…See More

Tony K. replied to Martin van Dooremalen's discussion I think I’m becoming a Seagull 1.8” nut width snob and the beginnings of GAS….. in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I agree.  That's what I was trying to get at as well in my response.  I forgot about the 3rd dimension though.  So ya, string spacing + nut width + neck profile/shape/thickness all make for a large variety and different feels."

This story has a happy ending, folks, and I'll start with it.

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…
