I may be going to look at an older S6, serial number is a 5 digit number starting with 12xxx. I have seen pictures and if I understand the way Seagull has used serial numbers this guitar is a 1980's vintage. But it looks to darn new in the pictures, almost like it has never been played. SO what do you all think?
Go, look, play, decide. A new S6 isn't that much more, is it?
Around 400 for a new one, heh 150 more.
Before Christmas I bought the 2002 Spruce/Mahogany M6 Gloss in perfect shape for $250 with hard shell case. That was an exceptional deal.
Used S-6's are being offered for between $250 and $350 on Craigslist pretty much every day with $300 being the more typical asking price. With that said, the ones priced at $300+ seem to sit for a while unsold.
With the 2012 S-6 now selling at $419 street, I think $250 is a good price for an older model provided everything checks out.
thanks for the reply, this does come with a nice hard case
