"Hi Rick and welcome! Yes, the S6 will have the 1.8" nut vs the Entourage's 1.72". This would probably be a noticeable difference to you. The S6 seems to be the workhorse of the Seagull line up, and tonally I would expect them to…"

So long John...

I first met John Renbourn in 1990. He was playing some gigs with Bert Jansch and Danny Thompson in the north of Italy. We had some talking at the end of the performance about his Franklin OM that I liked a lot. He was a very kind and friendly person. Since then I met him in another couple of occasions, always spending a few minutes talking about guitars. The last time was in 2007 and I remember him laughing when I told him I didn't like his last guitar, a Bown. I hope he'll meet Bert in heaven…See More

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…
