Thanks for the info.  I found the Podium's site, and that's on my 'must visit' list.  I'll be sure to check out the folks you mentioned.  Love to hear local acoustic players, so Coffee Grounds sounds interesting, too.

Comment by Rob Hanesworth on February 27, 2012 at 1:41pm

I have a couple of friends who is are actives players in the Twin Cities. By looking at their web sites you can find some venues where they play.


Bill Hammond


Bill hosts an open mike at Coffee Grounds and plays at other venues.


Lonnie Knight


Lonnie plays all over the Twin Cities area and beyond.


For guitar stores, visit The Podium and I am sure there are others, but I don't know them.

Comment by Phil Manuel on February 27, 2012 at 10:37am

I'm planning a visit to the Twin Cities around May/June.  Anyone from up that way, got recommendations on happenings, acoustic-wise, clubs, coffee-houses, or nice guitar shops?

@ Gord Mitchell ... just got an e-mail alert that you had "joined" the group, but you aren't showing up anywhere on Seagull group or even Acoustic Guitar online right now.  You may not even see this, but as far as I can tell, you're currently in some sort of cyber limbo.  Since you were already a member of long standing, I'm not sure what may have happened, but suggest that maybe contacting AGM directly might help with resolution.  Welcome back, as soon as you get here! :-)

12-string GAS is a terrible thing... :-)

Comment by FloridaGull on February 26, 2012 at 12:41pm

I always knew you were a folk/grand auditorium/OM sort of guy...for a "smaller" guitar... ;-)

Comment by michael schwartz on February 26, 2012 at 11:08am


That's what happened with me and the Maritime Gloss 12!!! I had my eye on it before I played the S12, and kept going back to it until it "followed" me home last week. A nice, bright sound; not like the cedar/cherry combo on the S12. Now my local shop can get a new Gull for his store.

Update:  Did not end up trading my 2011 S-6 for the little use Coastline Parlor as possibility I had mentioned Friday.  The shop owner was hot to make the trade and the idea seemed reasonable to me on the surface, but once I got the diminutive parlor in my hands, I just couldn't do it.  This flirtation has to stop.  I'm not a parlor guitar kinda guy.  I'm ready to face the facts.  I have a bunch of dreadnoughts for a reason, LOL.  GAS for parlors effectively squelched ... time to move on.  The shop DID have a nice "new, but been around for a while" Seagull 12-string on the wall for only $465 ... hmmm.

Thanks for the advice! I do want "safe" to keep my guitar for as long as I can have it! I always wipe off the fretboard, strings and neck after I play with a soft cloth, strings last a bit longer that way and it gets rid of any grime from playing.


Comment by Craig MC on February 24, 2012 at 2:03pm

Kirk, the fretboard conditioning question will get you a LOT of opinions. I use Dunlop 02 deep conditioner a couple times a year (on the bridge, too). Never use anything on the body that has wax as it will gradually build up. Just a soft cloth is really all you need, but if there is grime or fingerprints, try one of the guitar polishes by Dunlop or Martin. Probably overpriced for what you get, but they are safe for guitar bodies.
