Sorry - just went back and saw the all mahogany S6. $439 still sounds about $100 less than I'd expect with electronics, but not quite the deal for the SWS model

Comment by Greg Ballantyne on November 22, 2013 at 3:10pm

From the Seagull website the all mahogany dreadnaught is a Maritime SWS HG. All the Maritimes I've seen with electronics have been $800+....... If your memory is correct perhaps you should have plunked down the samolians........

 Sound might be affected by the strings. My NE came with somewhat dead Cleartones and did not sound "alive" - a new set of d'Addario EJ16's turned it into something speacial

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on November 22, 2013 at 3:08pm

Alan - according to the Seagull website you probably tried the S6 all-mahogany which comes with the Fishman electronics. The Maritime SWS all-mahog has the option of Godin's quantum QI electronics and should be in the same price range as the S&P.

I think I just found something I can do tomorrow - go to guitar shops and confirm my suspicions......

Comment by Alan Edmunds on November 22, 2013 at 12:24pm

Hmmmm, if memory serves, it had the new Fishman Lsys+ pickup and was $439. Did not have it without pickup.

Surprising given that the all-mahog S&P Woodland Pro Folk is over $700 I believe.

Alan ... how much were they asking for the all-mahogany Gull?

Comment by Alan Edmunds on November 22, 2013 at 12:05pm

Hi DC,

Here's my comment posted previously. Have not had the opportunity since.

Had a chance to play the All-Mahogany Seagull dreadnaught yesterday. Fresh out of the box the day before, new strings, played by several store staff since its arrival and very well set up.

It is possible that it's too mellow, too warm and not bright enough. I would not say dull sounding or muted, but I definitely would not say it sounded "alive" either.

But, man....that baby sure looked gorgeous. Even more gorgeous than the Godin pictures.

Comment by DC on November 22, 2013 at 12:02pm

Has anyone had their hands (ans ears) on the new 'Gull all mahogany model?  I am interested in any impressions.  


Comment by FloridaGull on November 22, 2013 at 10:20am

Boucher (as in Norman of Godin) is still a Canadian guitar maker...

Comment by Robert Williamson on November 21, 2013 at 2:13pm

Everyone know what an earworm is, right?... a song you cant get out of your head after someone casually mentioned it or hummed it..

well... Phil Manuel has given me a finger worm :)

I  cant stop playing Kathy's Song......

Larrivee leaving Canada is a big disappointment for me. I have a L03R which is in my opinion a guitar on par with higher priced Martin, Gibson and Taylor's. Jean Larrivee is a icon in Canadian guitar manufacturing and a master in wood evaluation and buying. One of their employees being left behind is Ed Tinker and he has opened his own shop, Halcyon Guitars. Right now he is as close to boutique as I will ever get and I am considering ordering an Advanced Jumbo rosewood back and sides with a englemann top from him. You can't beat the price and should take about 6 months to get.
