re the stained grain in the Concert Hall. My dealer agrees it is not the nicest looking thing  that Godin has done. He pointed out they are doing it in the S6 Original now too.

Comment by Robert Williamson on Friday

i think what bugs me about cutaway dreads is that the cutaway looks too parallel to the bottom...making it more box like.

Comment by Jud Hair on Friday

Robert ... Just looked at your photos ... GCPA5K  Grand Performance, Cut-away, Performing Artist, Level 5, with Koa HPL ... the cut-away looks fine on that size and model.

I had a DCPA4 a couple of years ago.  Gave it to my son for Christmas.  It was a dreadnought with a cut-away and I didn't fancy the look and had bought it mainly for the 1 3/4 inch nut which all Martin PA models have.

Comment by Greg Ballantyne on Friday

A friend of mine has an older S6 cutaway, dread of course - I'm not a cutaway guy in any case, but that S6 (I think is 10 or 12 years old) is a sweet sounding guitar. It's the guitar that made me look for and buy a cedar top, a Seagull NE.

Proud to say the NE is the better sounding of the two though, in my opinion....

Comment by Robert Williamson on Friday

Jud. nope.. Martin calls it 'Grand Performance' body , I call it a Mini-jumbo with a flattened bottom.

Comment by Jud Hair on Thursday

Robert ... Isn't your Martin a cut-away dread?

Comment by Robert Williamson on Thursday

sorry, I did not say dreads were ugly..

I said seagull dreads with cutaway are ugly..

Folk are ok with cutaway

Mini-jumbos are beautiful with cutaway.

That being said, if someone wants to gift me an Artist Peppino I would NOT be stubborn and refuse it. :)

Martin. I honestly did not notice the nut width when i tried the Peppino some years ago. I probably would now.

..mmm Mini-Jumbo 12? why go halfway?.. Seagull needs a Jumbo 12!!

Comment by Ron Khoo on Thursday

Robert, it looks like your gibson sg custom has fretboard binding and the binding should cover the fret ends.

All my acoustics are not cutaways. I don't like the esthetics of cutaways.

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on Thursday

I've played the Artist Peppino model at a shop here and the 1.9" nut feels a little odd and large without the second course of strings. Just removing the second course of strings on an S12 wouldn't feel the same unless you had a new nut cut for spacing, and then there's the bridge end and which pin holes to use......

I'm with Stephen; I like dreads and I like cutaways; even though I don't play up there they're just aesthetically pleasing to my eye. If Seagull had made a Maritime Mini-Jumbo 12 string with cutaway (even without) and QI in either spruce/mahogany or spruce/rosewood  I probably would have bought that instead of my 150e because it probably would have cost the same or less.

Comment by Stephen Leigh on Thursday

Different strokes. I don't think of dreads as ugly.  I *love* dreads for the big sound and prefer cutaways for the reach they allow -- and I want the guitar to have electronics so that I can plug in at need and still be heard without having to stay in front of a microphone.

Maybe that comes as a result of having played in bands all of my adult life.  :-)
