As if that discussion about B-stock and C-stock wasn't enough, I inadvertently learned that Godin is using Richlite to replace ebony for the fingerboards on several guitars, such as the ACS. As…Continue

Aluminum....not just for siding and TV-dinners anymore!

Well, I bought a couple of sets of the new Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze strings after reading the reviews; got the medium-light (12-54) set. Usually play w/ the D'Addario EJ16's on my Maritime MJ,…Continue

Anyone ever sell a 'gull and buy another one like it later? 9 Replies

Well I did.  I became 'gull-less for several months, selling off my SWS folk, my cedar folk, and my S6.  Too many guitars, not enough play.  Despite my denial, the S6 was just too unwieldy, as are my…Continue

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.

Enjoy.

Thanks guys.  Appreciate the advice.

@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 http://www.youtube.com/user/NicLubbersMusic or my website http://www.acousticfingerstylemusic.com/. 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.

Welcome Carlos! You've chosen a great guitar and a good group to be a part of! They keep my email inbox humming! Keep playing!

Thanks Jud! I wrote this great post but accidentally erased it... Stupid IPad! After trying a lot of guitars I noticed that the more expensive the guitar, the smoother and cleaner my chord changes sounded. Its one of the reasons I bought the Seagull... Great price, construction and most importantly, the sound.

Hey gang!  Carlos Lugo is member #150 ...

Carlos ... welcome to the group!  We love to chat, so chime in anytime and let us know when you get delivery on your S-6 :-)

Just used "poor mans credit card" (lay-away) for a seagull s6. I tried guitar after guitar and found that to gt any better, I had to spend north of 800.00 to be any happier than with the s6. Can't wait for payday!! Now I gotta learn to play... ha!
