As if that discussion about B-stock and C-stock wasn't enough, I inadvertently learned that Godin is using Richlite to replace ebony for the fingerboards on several guitars, such as the ACS. As…Continue

Anyone ever sell a 'gull and buy another one like it later? 9 Replies

Well I did.  I became 'gull-less for several months, selling off my SWS folk, my cedar folk, and my S6.  Too many guitars, not enough play.  Despite my denial, the S6 was just too unwieldy, as are my…Continue

William ... the Artist models do come new with the gold tuners and white pearloid buttons, but I have heard many people say the buttons aren't very durable.  My Artist has be fitted with replacement tuners that have metal buttons.  Not sure what brand, but they are pretty substantial.

William .. "relic-ed" is a term that is now commonly used to describe what electric guitar owners do to make their new guitars look "road worn" and vintage.  You can even buy brand new electrics that have been "relic-ed" for you by the manufacturer.

Crazy, I know ...


Chuck ... I agree.  My Artist Mosiac falls into that category.  Got it for only $300 because some previous owner had covered the cedar top with long pick stokes. I love it because it looks kinda cool, plays great, and I don't notice every little scratch and ding that I add to it myself. It's perfect for open mic action in crowded bars and coffee houses.

It might be kind of 'liberating' (for lack of a better word) to have a "beater" that has already been beaten....... no worries, just more 'character' added when the dog knocked it over. Unfortunately, the narrower nut keeps me out of the hunt.

Interesting Seagull Mini-Jumbo offered on CL for $180 ... Cosmetically, pretty darn rough.  Still a decent deal if it plays well.  The interesting part is that the rosette is gone.  Just a decal, I suppose.  I had assumed the rosettes were inlayed plastic.

Yep ... artists who don't move on stagnate for sure. 

Comment by Rory Maloney on June 28, 2013 at 6:15am

When Like a rolling stone was released, the Beatles, of their own admission, nearly wore out the record analysing it.Dylan just had to move onward.

Comment by Jud Hair on June 27, 2013 at 6:19pm

Greg ... yep.  I have to say that I like the simple, bare-bones pre-electric Dylan better than the post-electric, even though classic stuff such as "Like a Rolling Stone" was electric. 

Comment by Greg Ballantyne on June 27, 2013 at 6:13pm

I never saw  a Dylan concert in person, but I've never seen a Dylan concert clip or filmed where he was not playing a guitar. The electric incident you mention, Jud, was called "selling out" at the time, as I remember.....

Comment by Jim Swalley on June 27, 2013 at 2:39pm

Jud - I know what you mean about your Sovereign/Harmony.  My Harmony still sounds better than many new guitars today.  Must be the solid mahogany and solid spruce.  Twang!

Here he is with a guitar:

Bob Dylan Photo

When we saw him about 2 years ago, he played a guitar (that actually looked like the one above) for the first 2 songs - then retreated behind a keyboard.  Last night, out front singing and harmonica-ing, or behind the keyboard - maybe arthritis has gotten him... :-(
