Jud, about the Maritime SWS Rosewood's neck, I've often wondered the EXACT same thing.  lol.  For the most part, I think I understand what Godin is doing with Seagull.  There's only a few models/decisions they've made that really puzzle me.

But hey, it does seem to be working for them, so.....Go Go Godin!  8-D

Comment by Rex Edmonds yesterday
Nut width is one thing. String spacing is another. I do wish manufacters would list the string spacing at the nut along with the 12th fret and at the bridge.
Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on Wednesday

Their thinking seems to be a little outside the box so to speak.

While the other mfgr's seem to make nut widths 1-11/16" (1.68") and 1-3/4"  (1.75"), Godin went with slightly larger 1-23/32" (1.72") and 1-13/16" (1.8") nut widths. Even their 12's are 1.9" (1-15/16") while most other mfg's seems to be 1.875" (1-7/8").

And only (some) Seagull's get the 1.8" nut; A&L and S&P all get the 1.72" nut (according to their respective spec pages, Norman's doesn't specify). It's almost as if Seagull has taken a page from the Martin & Taylor playbook making the wider nut only available on upper end models. Not sure if the thinking is that new players would prefer a narrower width and more experienced players looking to upgrade may prefer a wider nut.

But then again, I'm not sitting behind a desk in La Patrie, QC so this is all coming from my imagination.

Comment by Jud Hair on Wednesday

It would be interesting to have some insight into how Godin makes decisions about what models to produce or not. Of course, all manufacturers have these decisions to make, but Godin seems to be a bit more arbitrary and capricious in their methodology.  For instance, the Maritime SWS Rosewood with the 1.72 inch nut, and no 1.8 inch option ... how did they arrive at that decision? 

Comment by Elton Bloye on Wednesday

I like the Showcase Folk Rosewood.

I would still love to see them make a Seagull Artist Folk Rosewood with 1.8 nut neck. (Think I say this in every post - LOL!) - Come on Robert Godin - You can do it!

Hi Gulls ... just FYI ... if you want to go back and find an old discussion topic, click on "View All" ... at the bottom of the Discussion Forum" area up above under the photo of my three Gulls.

Tony - that is actually a Seagull Maritime SWS Mahogany HG Q1 (I took it down to play a bit on it), and just below it the same without the Q1. There were no S&P all mahogany guitars, but they had the Woodland Pro Folk and Parlor models both spruce and sunburst in another area.

I was really surprised to so many Godin 12 strings in stock too: 1 each of A&L 12's with and w/o electronics, 1 each of S&P Woodland 12's with and w/o electronics, 1 each of Seagull Excursion Walnut 12's with and w/o electronics and 1 each of Seagull S12 with and w/o electronics.
