Picked up a nice Coastline S6 Cedar Folk SF. She looks good next to her big sister. Pics to follow. Does the SF mean satin finish? Which it does have a beautiful satin finish. Or second finish? Any way looks good sounds great! Troy
Congrats on your new Gull !! You do indeed now have a fledgling flock on your hands ... but, watch out! Gulls breed pretty fast in the right environment!!
Remember, Lennie left a 6 and a 12 alone, ended up with eggs, and hatched a mandolin...still trying to figure out the genetic background to THAT one... ;-)
congrats on the new addition! A buddy has given/perminant loaned me an S6 Folk from the 70's. In fact, I have it at the shop getting cleaned up, neck tweaked and new strings put on. The burning question is: do I seriously think about getting the "new" 3 yr. old M12 in the shop? Can one have too many Gulls or 12 strings??
If you have the finances, and no one is going hungry, no - you can't have too many... ;-)
It is on the Seagull label in the guitar. It says "Coastline S6 Folk Ceadar SF"
I got a reply. It is a second finish. No problem for me. I can see some issues that may have prompted the grade. But looks like new and sounds great. $200 I would do it again.
Is "flock" the collective noun for seagulls? There are a lot of very interesting and imaginative terms for groups of animals, especially birds. For example, a group of crows is a "murder," a group of larks is an "exaltation," wildfowl - a "plump," owls - a parliament, etc. For longer list go to:
But, I found no term for a gull or a seagull. The options for waterfowl are "bunch," "knob" and "raft." I sort of like the term "raft" although people may think we were using them as floatation devices.
I have found these terms sort of quaint, but still interesting. If you love music, you probably love language as well.
