This line of guitar has probably been available for about 6 months now. Do many members have one? Have you had any access to this guitar in your local shops. I have the cedar full dread with wild cherry laminate back and sides B Band electronics and I am so impressed with this guitar. The difference in sound from my full dread Maritime is incredible and gives me so many interesting options when learning a new song or just messing around with chords between the 2 guitars. When I change picks there is a whole new world of tones as well. I have played a few spruce tops and they are amazing as well. IMHO this is a great addition to the Seagull line and an example of ethical use of materials.
There are several members of this forum who have bought Natural Elements ... personally, I have yet to see one available in any of the shops locally, including GC ... would love to try one out!!
Your basic tone wood combination is the same as the S-6, but with B-Band rather that Quantum I electronics.
Yes. I had a S6 with QI but I found the cedar too delicate and susceptible to damage so I sold it (mistake). I ended up missing the cedar sound and got the NE cedar as soon as it came out. There is not a lot of difference and the S6 is a great guitar.
Love the natural elements!!!!
I haven't seen one either - and, when I asked the "sleeping clerk" if they were going to get any in (this was back when I was checking out the Artist Folk for Tom Laing - so a few months ago), he didn't know such a thing existed... :-(
They have wood bindings and rosette, too - right? I think that is very nice - the Artist's should be wood-bound, too, IMHO...and the Maritime SWS...
