Comment by Martin van Dooremalen yesterday

Robert & Tony - do the L&M's by you stock many/any Seagull guitars? There are 3 in Calgary but the one closest to me where I get my lunch time guitar therapy usually only has used Seagulls and usually Artist or Maritime only, probably taken on trade. They do stock some S&P's but generally not many.

My shop of choice, Guitar Works, is a local company (I think, according to what I can find on the interwebs) with 4 locations in the city, one of those being an "acoustic only" store and one in an outlet mall, go figure, but at least I have a place to go when my wife wants to shop there. They always have a huge selection of Godin products - minimum 30+ assorted A&L, S&P and Seagull (but no Norman) in the acoustic room.

Both places are good at leaving me alone to play when I go for a "therapy" session after a tough morning at work.

Comment by Tony K. yesterday

So far, the 2 L&Ms that I have gone to on occasion have never had any used or consignment stuff available. The exception being of previously rented stuff that was their product to begin with. Those products, once they're done renting them, get sold for half price or somewhere around there usually.  That's how I got my Traynor AC50 2 channel acoustic amp.  Mint condition (surprisingly seeing as it was a piece of rental equipment) at half price; can't complain about that.

I don't really have any complaints about the L&Ms here except for the one glaring problem with them and that's their staff.  They just don't seem to care about anything most of the time.  The customer service and care I get at the other 2 indy shops I go to smokes L&M by miles.

As far as i know there is only one guitar store chain in Canada. Long and McQuaid who are also a major distributor to other guitar stores. They own Yorkville  (accessories, stands, cases etc..) and other brands.

Archambeault has abou 15 stores in Qiebec, but is a Music Department store, not a Musical Instrument store. In addtinto intrsuments, It sells books, movies and cd's and gift/stationary much like Chapters/Indigo  (a 'book' store chain)

Steve's Music has 5 stores, 3 in the Montreal Area and 1 each in Toronto and Ottawa. Since a Steve's or former affiliate MusicCircle has been near my home for more that 20 years, that's where _I_ shop.

L&Q only recently came to Quebec and took over some stores of much smaller 2-3 store chains.  The two around me are too far away to go visit based upon what their website shows me. The Quebec stores don't seem to carry used at all.

I think Tony K has experience with the more liberal L&Q Ontario stores who don't have the overhead of operating in Quebec (language, packaging and consumer laws).

Comment by Jud Hair on Tuesday

If found that Guitar Center franchises vary a great deal in the size and quality of their inventory.  In Raleigh, NC we have one of the better examples with perhaps 50 higher-end Martins,Taylors and Gibsons etc. in their smaller humidified acoustic room.  However, they never have any Seagull above the Maritime SWS Dread QI w/Cutaway, which by the way is (or was) a Guitar Center Exclusive model made just to sell through for GC when they came out a few years ago.

There is an absolutely fabulous GC in Atlanta, GA with maybe 200 high end acoustics and a large selection of used high-end stuff that you don't see very often ... I love stopping in that store whenever I'm down there.

But, conversely just 20 miles from the very nice Raleigh, NC store is a rather pitiful example in Durham, NC which has virtually no high-end inventory of any kind and their Seagulls begin and end at the Entourage level.

The one great thing about all the Guitar Center's I've been in is that you can play pretty much anything they have for as long as you want to without someone standing over your shoulder trying to sell it to you.

Comment by Ron Khoo on Tuesday

My local GC has less stock than usual and not many good guitars.  They have 1 Seagull S6, a few lower range Martins and maybe a D28 or 2.  Ditto for Taylor.  When they first opened, they had a better selection.  

I did think of getting a Custom D MMV but changed my mind and later got my D35.  The 000 MMV is nice, but the sharp frets suggest that that particular guitar has been laying around somewhere for a long time drying out.

I fear you are right...

Comment by Jud Hair on Monday

Robert ... I don't believe they will do that any more. I certainly stand to be corrected if wrong, but I was thinking that they won't even build you a lefty version of a guitar on special request or give you a wider or narrower nut width. As I say, this has been my impression, but I could be wrong.

Comment by Robert Williamson on Monday

By custon, read variation of what we already do...they won't make you a Jumbo.
