"I just picked up an Entourage Rustic yesterday. That guitar looks and sounds amazing. Like you, I thought I would own an S6 original if I ever bought a Seagull, but the look, tone, and price of the Entourage won me over."

"Thanks for all the info! I know they are higher end guitars and it has great tone low action so for the money I thought it would be a good buy that I could sell down the road and not get hurt on."

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…
