@ Monty ... Thanks for the lead on the Epic Chromatic tuner app!  Sounds cool!

Comment by Jud Hair on March 10, 2012 at 2:01pm

@S_B ... here's a comment I just saw posted on another forum ..."All the tuning machines I've ever seen on Seagull and Simon & Patrick guitars have been Ping tuners, which are Schaller copies. Aftermarket buttons intended for Schaller gears can be made to fit - the shafts are not identical, but if you slip the buttons on the right way they'll fit."

s b, likely the best source for this information is our friend Michel Bélanger who is the customer service contact person over at Godin. The link is up above, or here: 

He usually has an answer about any Godin-family guitars quickly.

Monty Hicken.

I'm sorry I don't follow you. I didn't what kind of tuner to use I asked what kind of TUNING MACHINES are ON the S&P Parlor Pro. Besides your answer still doesn't help I don't own a iphone.

Comment by Monty Hicken on March 10, 2012 at 10:14am

Sorry, it's called "Epic Chromatic Tuner".

Sorry for the typo.

Comment by Monty Hicken on March 10, 2012 at 10:14am

Hi S B.

If you have an Ipod Touch or an Iphone, you can get the app called "Epci Chromatic Tuner".  It works really well.

Thanks guys.  Appreciate the advice.

Comment by Jud Hair on March 10, 2012 at 7:35am

@Jake ... LaPatrie is the arm of the Godin Companies that makes the nylon string classical acoustics.  All the other Godin acoustics ... Seagulls, Simon & Patricks, Normans, & Art & Lutheries are steel string instruments.

Comment by Nic Lubbers on March 10, 2012 at 6:50am

Welcome to the group Jake! I believe you sent out an email asking about nylon strings on Seagulls, Seagulls do not require nylon strings. Classical guitars require nylon strings and I don't think Seagull makes those (though I could be wrong). If yours did it would probably be broken by now since steel strings create much more string tension. I have an S6+ Folk as well and love it. You can check it out on my youtube channel or my website Have fun with your new guitar!

Just wondering if anyone could tell me what kind of tuning machines are on the Woodland Parlor Pro. I believe they are Pings but as there are no markings on them I can't tell.

The reason I ask is because I want to change the buttons. Any help would be grateful. Thanks.
