New (used) Seagull arrived today- and my first impressions are very good ones.  Not as much volume as the S6 Original I used to have, but a very clear and balanced tone. Plugged in it sounded great,…Continue

Well, cool - they had to do that, I suppose, so that they could be equal in selling price...$869 $900 a bit high...IMHO

The spruce top/mahogany b/s was basically what the SWS is now. The flame maple was a spruce top/lam maple b/s according to this Premier Guitar article, basically what the Performer series is now. The tuners on both of these are the same as the Artist series (I think) which seems to be the only "bling" along with the 25th Anniversary Limited Edition headstock badge to make them 'special'.

My friend Ron bought a 25th Anniversary - the "Mahogany Spruce" - for $500 including TRIC case - no electronics...
Comment by FloridaGull on September 25, 2013 at 1:55pm
If I am not mistaken, the 25th Anniversary models (there were 2) had at least a solid back, if not all solid wood..b

with many sales ppl, If the rep doesn't TELL them, they have never heard of what  you are looking for................

A 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Flame Maple CW EQ Seagull with TRIC case for sale in my neck of the Canadian woods....

25th Anniv Gull

I think the $900 asking price a little much for solid top/lam back & sides guitar despite the anniversary designation and TRIC case and the other goodies the seller is throwing in. A new Performer Flame Maple CW Q1 (which is basically the same thing, no?) w/gig bag can be had for about $600-$650.

Robert ... On your recommendation,  I shopped for one at GC, Sam Ash and a big local shop and nobody had one in stock yet. Staff at all three places had never even heard of it before. 

Comment by Robert Williamson on September 25, 2013 at 7:32am

Im guessing no one  here uses

the SA-1 ?

Comment by Robert Williamson on September 22, 2013 at 1:22pm

looks interesting Acoustic Tube SA-1

right now i use a Behringer  B-5 Pencil condenser (aimed at soundhole) for recording the S6 Cedar. However I used to use an Label microphone as a contact pickup with a cheap Dixon dynamic microphone positioned over my right shoulder (to record what _I_ hear) and had good results with that setup. My old Lay of the Silkie Wife (as Bobbie McMahon) song/story was done with the lapel mic..

Comment by Robert Williamson on September 21, 2013 at 5:00pm

L&M in montreal is only a online order pickup outlets, The store is actually Ahunsic Musical Instruments.

Steve's on the other hand is huge... they have it $192 CDN for a 300$ guitar....i wish I had not accidentally tossed out  my 60's D'armond Soundhole pickup...

now they call it vintage
