Just got a new seagull artist studio and no quantum ll electronics installed. Instead there is only a baggs element under saddle with control inside sound hole. Wonder why they changed.

@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.

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.

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.

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!

Craig,  my M12 was a little high when I got her, but after having a proper set up she is definately easier to play than my un-setup 25thAniv.  And OH the tone....
