"Hi Tony, the reason I said the string spacing is 1.5" is that I've replaced the nut on my old Seagull with a Tusq PQ-1801. The manufacturer (Graphtech)  told me that this is the OEM nut they supply to Godin. That nut is spec'd at…"

"When you say it didn't feel right, was that on the fretting hand or the picking hand, or both? Despite being slightly wider, the 1.8" nuts on Seagulls have the same string spacing as the 1.75" nut Taylors. The spacing is 1.5" E…"

I think I’m becoming a Seagull 1.8” nut width snob and the beginnings of GAS…..

This past Saturday my wife and I had to do some shopping in the area where my favorite guitar shop is so I asked if she minded if we stop in and look around. “Sure” she said without hesitation. I love her. Now I’m not really looking to buy or interested in anything in particular, but I have been thinking I might want something with a little more bass response and possibly "scooped" through the mids so perhaps a mini jumbo/GA/GS shape might be the ticket. As is typical on a Saturday in a popular…See More

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…
