What was it about Seagull/Godin guitar(s) that first spoke to you and convinced you to make the move? For me, it was the way the profile of the neck and the 1.8 inch nut width felt.  For the first…Continue

@ GB....yes, damn near froze my fingers off on the install...:)

No, I don't really know much about them except a finger-picker I ran into in a guitar store in NFLD spoke highly of them and let me play them a while on his guitar. I thought what the heck, and bought 'em. Pretty happy so far.

Phil ... The first time I saw Sarah in concert a little over a year ago, Nathaniel Smith wasn't with her for some reason.  He was present a couple of weeks ago when I saw her for the second time.  His cello provides such a dynamic low end to the overall sound of the threesome.

Alan - Cryogenic Activated? Do you have to keep them in the freezer?

Comment by Phil Manuel on December 14, 2013 at 8:46am

Here's a nice NPR tiny desk concert, featuring Sarah Jarosz.  Enjoy!

Comment by Alan Edmunds on December 14, 2013 at 7:47am

Did a little maintenance...

Replaced Fender lights on my Performer Folk with Dean Markley Cryogenic Activated lights - man, are they crisp and bright sounding (or perhaps it's been too long between new strings). I've heard they are like that initially but fade fast. We'll see.

Also used the Taylor cut-the-string-before-you-install-it approach and while it made me slightly nervous, it worked like a charm.

A little Dunlop 65 lemon oil on the fretboard and bridge and voila!....happy ...happy!

My 12-string is next.

anyone remember gear cases built like stitched guitar cases?  I even recall Fender had one. Sometimes called 'train cases'  

heres Fender's briefdcase, I've not found the train case i saw back in the 60's

Ive been searching  music store sites, ebay etc and not finding any ...there are lots of cosmetic cases and parts  boxes.. in search results...

Speaking of Willie Nelson's guitar .. the museum at the Martin Factory has a brand new example on display ... just to show you what it used to look like :-)

Comment by Greg Ballantyne on December 9, 2013 at 7:54pm

I love Willie Nelson's guitar, but I don't neccessarily want mine to look to look like his - especially not anytime soon...... I put the pickguard on my NE cedar top, along with a small cut out piece of clear pickguard to protect from my anchor finger, between the pickguard and the saddle and below the pickguard. That guitar booms, its sound is large, loud and sweet.

Okay ... just saw this "brilliant" solution to wear and tear on a CL ad ... LOL.
