My turn, I reckon:Name's Gary in Louisville, Kentucky. I'm 68 and been playing for about a year after a 20+ year "time out" due to a lawn mower taking the tips of my middle and ring finger on my fretting hand. Played for 30+ years before that.

"They are definitely both not Coastlines.  They both are the same model.  The only questions are what condition are they in and how to they sound."

"The guitar in ad1 looks like the regular s6 and not coastline.  The body binding is black and not white like in coastline. Also the back and sides seem to be more natural cherry rather than a stained darker brown. The label says s6 and not as…"
