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

Oh, I've plugged my acoustics into my Fender Frontman 15 and little Guitar Research amp as well - it is kind of fun to make my Seagull Performer sound like a Stratocaster with the right amount of gain...  ;-)

However, when plugged into the AC-90 - oh my!

I've plugged in an acoustic, but yes meant for electric, and only 1 input.

I'm no where near ready for an audience!

That's a nice price on that!

Comment by FloridaGull 1 hour ago

I believe those are intended for electric guitar or bass - all these - - are intended for Acoustic guitar amplification...

I had been thinking of an AC-33 for the battery power/portablility - but they are $399 - - $129 makes much more sense for a portable, picnic/backyard/camping/beach amp...

I've got a Roland Mini-Cube, bought it on CraigsList for $50.  It's pretty cool, for what it is.

Oh - the Mobile AC is also battery powered - which is kind of implied by the "mobile" in the name, I guess... ;-)

Comment by FloridaGull 1 hour ago

I have often mentioned how happy I am with my Roland AC-90 acoustic amplifier - and the fact that they also make an AC-60, AC-40, and AC-33 (which is battery powered!).  Well, I was checking out the Roland site, and found one I didn't know about - the Roland Mobile AC!

A whole 5 watts!  2 speakers!  Separate mic and guitar inputs!  Pretty cool...$129 at Sweetwater -

Yea it's 7:00am, didn't sleep much last night.  My wife is worried about the surgery tomorrow and I had a thought that I could let go.  

I want to make my own Backpack type guitar with a Seagull neck.  Yes, finally a Seagull connection.  I have 2 beat up Seagulls that I paid very little for, both with bolt on necks, but one of them is from the 90's and has the truss rod adjustment in the headstock.  I would cut the heal off between the 2 threaded inserts and drill through the upper thread insert and counterbore the hole on the outside for a socket head cap screw.  I could make many test bodies and just bolt the neck onto it.  I thought about making the prototype with a screwed on top, to try different configurations.  I also thought about putting the sound hole on the side facing up, instead of on the top since this is supposed to be a personal instrument.  I think I saved the bolt on bridge from the same old Seagull, I could just bolt it on to each top.  

The construction would initially be 1/8" plywood, graduating to solid wood when I figured out how to build them.  I think Woodcraft sells a nice book on acoustic guitar construction.

The size of the Martin Backpacker came from the guy who was originally building them from Martin's scrap they sell at the store at the old Factory.  Eventually I could do the same.

Well, I couldn't look at the ugly white tuner knobs and bushings on the China Backpacker any longer.  I swapped out the tuners from another cheap guitar that at least are chrome.  And put the Silk & Steel strings on it, tuned to standard D to be safe.  I guess it sounds a little better but more important it looks better!

NAH!!  I'll be home for a few days with her.  I'll probably spend some time downstairs with the guitars.

Best wishes and speedy recovery for your wife. Hobbies can go on hiatus.
