Seagull Artist Portrait owners!

Hey all, been dying for a Seagull for quite some time now, just haven't been able to figure out which one. Of course the tone and projection of the S6 is what drew me in, but I've been looking for one with maybe solid woods and a cutaway. Pretty open to spruce or cedar but leaning towards spruce.Anyway! Found a great priced Artist Portrait online and am extremely tempted to pull the trigger. Love the idea of owning one from the best line Seagull offers, however I haven't been able to try it.

"P.S. "Just The Way You Are"  by Billy Joel can be simplified to easily be played on the acoustic as well.  You don't have to play every "piano" chord Bill does in the song to play and sing it nicely."

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…
