i keep asking her to come here..

I tried my best - here's what I posted...

I tried out and almost bought the 2014 Seagull Performer Cutaway Folk Flame Maple QI. Instead, I bought a NOS 2007 Seagull Performer Folk QI (cedar top). I chose the 2007 because the sound of the new Performer was thin and it had no bottom.

My wife now owns the 2007 Performer because folk body fits her smaller frame better. I have an Artist Studio.

I previously owned the S&P Woodland Pro Folk - wonderful guitar except I preferred the wider nut of Seagulls. The wider nut and slightly wider string spacing make for easier finger style.

I can't comment on the NE.

Seagull and S&P are produced by the same company - in fact, many of the body molds and sizes are the same. Therefore, you will get the same quality of instrument regardless of what you buy.

Many people have had great success ordering Seagull/S&P guitars online and loving them without playing them beforehand. I recommend playing it first.

Happy hunting.

Comment by Robert Williamson on February 21, 2015 at 5:55pm

that would look nice as a Seagull..only $3899cdn With case at 12Fret !

Comment by Robert Williamson on February 21, 2015 at 5:51pm

I ran across this video while searching for a tune,,,,and an blown away by the tone of this

not whiny like most resonators I've heard, it does not sound like a banjo strangling a cat...! This guitar has depth... and its not just the double-g6ish tuning.

SO went and checked other resonator videos and i was under-whelmed, is it the brand?

seems so!

Man that's a sweet pick! I love to see artist performing like that! Just singing, playing, and gettin' into it.
