What was it about Seagull/Godin guitar(s) that first spoke to you and convinced you to make the move? For me, it was the way the profile of the neck and the 1.8 inch nut width felt.  For the first…Continue

Comment by Alan Edmunds yesterday

Your folks are very fine people with great priorities. It was not only about rock-'n-roll in those days.

I will hasten to add that lots of the shows I've seen (and a few that I've been in) have not been very good - Pippen comes to mind. Despite that, we decided to go see its revival last year in New York. It still was not great but Andrea Martin brought the house down in her role as Berthe (an old, feisty woman - think Granny from “The Beverly Hillbillies"). A three-end-a-half-minute-standing-ovation show stopper in the middle of the second act.....very powerful!!

So, sometimes ya gotta sit through the schlock to see the diamonds.

Another very, very good one is "Newsies". We hope to see "Matilda" in NYC in the spring.

But, more related to this forum, ONCE is the best - even with it being heavily dotted with Martin guitar products :)

Comment by michael schwartz yesterday

@Alan...saw the movie.but not the play. You're right!! I don't know that I've as many as you ,but, my folks "made" me see most things that came around 60's to early 70's.

Comment by Alan Edmunds on Thursday

Ohhhhhhh, you missed one Michael.....Kinky Boots was off the hook!

Not that it makes a hill of beans of difference in the grand scheme of things, but I rank it in my top 6-7 musicals of all time (I've seen or been in 40-45 shows). No weak spots at all.

Comment by michael schwartz on Thursday

on that note...(OK) every pun intended...while in NYC last week, we saw Sting's "The Last Ship". I was underwhelmed by the entire production. The best part was that I can now say I took my Wife to a Broadway play...shoulda seen Kinky Boots

Comment by Alan Edmunds on Thursday

Yep, saw both the movie and the Broadway show....nothing wrong with the movie as it's a corker, but "live-and-in-person" at the show was an awesome experience.

Comment by Jud Hair on Thursday

Not Seagull, or even necessarily guitar related, but "Jersey Boys" is a pretty darn good movie!  In case you don't know, it traces the evolution of "Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons".  The music is fabulous.  Adapted from the hit Broadway play.  Surprisingly, directed by Clint Eastwood.

Comment by FloridaGull on Tuesday
Well, I haven't seen it in person yet, but it is reported to be very gently condition with HSC... :-)

About one year old...
Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on Tuesday

FloridaGull - good luck as well with your high level boardroom discussions with the co-CFO. Perhaps you can compose something to play to her when the two of you go to check it out to sway her decision; ya gotta take advantage of every opportunity.....

If my 150e didn't work out at the time I would've gotten the S12. Is the one you're considering new or used?

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on Tuesday

Robert - I was able to try a Norman B18-12 when I was looking. It was set up very well, played easily and sounded very nice but I wasn't after the cedar top sound.  I did not discern any noticeable difference in the spacing of the string pairs on any of the 12's I tried. After reading some of your posts about your Fender I think you would enjoy the Norman more so than the Fender. Good luck with the negotiations!!

Comment by FloridaGull on Tuesday

Excellent!  My 12's are nicely spaced - the Giannini slightly wider than the Guild, IIRC...

I may be adding a Seagull Coastline S12 with QI to the stable...well, I will be, assuming discussions with the co-CFO go in a positive direction... ;-)

Then I'll have a solid Spruce over laminate Pao-Ferro/Morado 12-string (Giannini Craviola), a solid Spruce over solid Mahogany 12-string  (Guild GAD F212) - both without electronics - and a solid Cedar over laminate WIld Cherry 12-string with electronics (Seagull Coastline S12 w/QI) - Woo Hoo! :-)
