I can say one thing - I ever get a 3D printer I'm stayin' away from guitars.......

Maybe some of the NE's i thought were cedar tops and sounded poor (for cedar) were actually Drowned Spruce... I never really checked labels.

Must check when I'm allowed to drive again.

Comment by Greg Ballantyne yesterday

Henk - your guitar looks a lot like my NE dread - but I put the pick guard on mine. I am guessing that guitar sounds great.

Comment by Stephen Leigh yesterday

Henk -- That's a gorgeous top on the guitar, I think.

Robert -- Interesting... but I think I'll stick to wood!  :-)

Comment by Robert Williamson yesterday

woah Henk,  that guitar is from the Dark Side :)

Almost a Seagull

Comment by Henk Don yesterday

Here she is Robert. Built in 2012.

Comment by Robert Williamson yesterday

Henk post a pic! be interesting to compare to my 2 posts and the ones i've seen at shop.

Seems the appearances  go from bleached to burnt to water-logged :)

Comment by Henk Don yesterday

Joe, I'm sure you would enjoy playing the NE guitar. They are all just a little different in appearance, making each one unique.

I had sent an email to Seagull asking if the dark top on my Amber Trail could actually be cedar. Their response was that some of the reclaimed logs were submerged for many years and harvested from lake bottoms. This submerged aging gives colour changes in the wood depending on which part of the log the wood comes from.

I do recommend changing the strings though. For me, the Elixir Nanowebs sounded much brighter than the stock D'Adderio"s

Comment by Derick Chatfield yesterday

Hi Joe

I have the Simon and Patrick, Natural Elements mini jumbo, Spruce over Heart of wild Cherry.

Find it an excellent guitar for strumming or finger picking, top rate build quality, and they sound good to my ears.

Would recommend trying one for your self, don't think you will be disappointed.
