Looks nice - but, I am not a fan of the zipper closure - which is why I sought out an older, discontinued, non-deluxe TRIC case (with latches!) for my Walden N610CE Father's Day gift...

The new version of the TRIC?  Yes, I believe you are the first...


Comment by Jud Hair on September 16, 2013 at 10:26am

Robert ... This is what I recall ...

Robert Godin and Normand Boucher were partners in the beginning, but went their less than amicable separate ways in the early 80s after Godin bought Boucher out.  The Norman line is still a "tribute" to that partnership, but the new Boucher guitars apparently are not associated with Godin in any way.

TRIC Deluxe case (fits Dread,Mini-Jumbo and Arch) will arrive tomorrow at my front door.  109$cdn plus taxes and purolator.

DO i have the 1st in town? :)

Comment by Robert Williamson on September 16, 2013 at 9:54am

I thought that Godin also had a line called Boucher, after the original designer and owner of Norman. But its seems it is a separate site

Im not even sure that that Boucher is the same as thr Norman designer.. not a mention of Norman on site.

Comment by Robert Williamson on September 15, 2013 at 11:35am

Does anyone have a link to the full version of  Godin's Guitar CLinic.

Comment by Alan Edmunds on September 14, 2013 at 3:46pm

Normans are popular in Ontario (about 14 million pop) and Quebec (about 8 million pop). At this moment, around 80 ads for used ones on Kijiji Ontario (Craig's List) and about 120 ads for them on Quebec Kijiji.

My wife has a fantastic Norman B-20 Folk - got it in Edmonton, Alberta for a song....the guy really did not know what he had, despite being a very good player.

Comment by FloridaGull on September 14, 2013 at 3:36pm

Hey - I bought a TRIC case from them!  No Norman or A&L folk accidentally inside, unfortunately... ;-)
