Construction and overall playability, IMHO, will be equivalent. Materials are different - solid cedar top vs. solid spruce top - and lam wild cherry vs. solid mahogany back and sides.
As they will both have the QI, plugged in sound (when adjusted through a good acoustic amp) will be equivalent as well - so the unplugged sound should be your determining factor - and your budget as well. Play both to see which YOU like better - cedar tends to be a bit "warmer", spruce a bit "brighter" - which do YOU prefer?

If you go to my page, and view my photos, you'll see 2 very effective uses for a First Act child guitar - lamp decoration, and wall hanging. See - they're not totally useless...

Just for fun, let me introduce all you Canadians, Midwesterners, Yankees, Floridians, Left-Coasters and various & sundry other Non-Southerners to the one and only Michael Reno Harrell ... one heck of a songwriter and terrifically engaging performer (and ya gotta love the hair!).  This is just a funny little ditty he wrote that encompasses practically every aspect of my own personal up-bringing.  ENJOY!!

Lennie ... I agree.  Sadly, my Artist turned out to be past the age of childbearing and nothing happened while the young S-6 was in the nest.

Comment by Lennie Schoonover on March 25, 2012 at 6:31pm

Jud, that's a better picture !

but seagulls should be in pairs so they don't get lonely...

Comment by Jud Hair on March 25, 2012 at 6:08pm

I like the "Natural Elements" much better on the headstock than on the top myself.  I'd like to see them burn both the Seagull logo and the Natural Elements into the headstock in some aesthetically pleasing combination and leave the top alone.

John, remember the book and movie, Jonathan Livingston Seagull?  You are Jon and want to fly.

As promised - the link and a pic of the strange-headed Seagull Natural Element:

Doesn't look too bad, actually... ;-)

Jud, how about retaking your "last survivor" picture so that the seagull shows up better?

Comment by Lennie Schoonover on March 25, 2012 at 10:10am

John. excellent answer - I like it.
