Ohhhhhhh, you missed one Michael.....Kinky Boots was off the hook!

Not that it makes a hill of beans of difference in the grand scheme of things, but I rank it in my top 6-7 musicals of all time (I've seen or been in 40-45 shows). No weak spots at all.

Comment by michael schwartz on Thursday

on that note...(OK) every pun intended...while in NYC last week, we saw Sting's "The Last Ship". I was underwhelmed by the entire production. The best part was that I can now say I took my Wife to a Broadway play...shoulda seen Kinky Boots

Comment by Alan Edmunds on Thursday

Yep, saw both the movie and the Broadway show....nothing wrong with the movie as it's a corker, but "live-and-in-person" at the show was an awesome experience.

Not Seagull, or even necessarily guitar related, but "Jersey Boys" is a pretty darn good movie!  In case you don't know, it traces the evolution of "Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons".  The music is fabulous.  Adapted from the hit Broadway play.  Surprisingly, directed by Clint Eastwood.

Well, I haven't seen it in person yet, but it is reported to be very gently condition with HSC... :-)

About one year old...

FloridaGull - good luck as well with your high level boardroom discussions with the co-CFO. Perhaps you can compose something to play to her when the two of you go to check it out to sway her decision; ya gotta take advantage of every opportunity.....

If my 150e didn't work out at the time I would've gotten the S12. Is the one you're considering new or used?

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on November 18, 2014 at 10:05am

Robert - I was able to try a Norman B18-12 when I was looking. It was set up very well, played easily and sounded very nice but I wasn't after the cedar top sound.  I did not discern any noticeable difference in the spacing of the string pairs on any of the 12's I tried. After reading some of your posts about your Fender I think you would enjoy the Norman more so than the Fender. Good luck with the negotiations!!

Comment by FloridaGull on November 18, 2014 at 9:13am

Excellent!  My 12's are nicely spaced - the Giannini slightly wider than the Guild, IIRC...

I may be adding a Seagull Coastline S12 with QI to the stable...well, I will be, assuming discussions with the co-CFO go in a positive direction... ;-)

Then I'll have a solid Spruce over laminate Pao-Ferro/Morado 12-string (Giannini Craviola), a solid Spruce over solid Mahogany 12-string  (Guild GAD F212) - both without electronics - and a solid Cedar over laminate WIld Cherry 12-string with electronics (Seagull Coastline S12 w/QI) - Woo Hoo! :-)

local dealer is interested in my Fender 12 mahogany in trade for a Norman 12 Cedar.. ..he hasnt talked money yet..

the norman has wider spaced pairs than the fender..

Comment by Jud Hair on November 16, 2014 at 8:45am

Hi Gary ... Yeah, I'm always asking sort of rhetorical questions over on AGF just to see what kind of discussion and information gets generated.  I've head of Halcyon Guitars.  Probably on AGF ... :-)
