NGD- Back in the flock with my Maritime SWS Rosewood Q1T 7 Replies

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

Why don't they say "Guitar may require talent"?

Comment by FloridaGull on Thursday
Well, it only needs new strings if you want to actually put strings on it...if you want to make it a planter, then you don't need strings... ;-)
Comment by Jud Hair on Thursday

I always enjoy the disclaimer that says "Guitar may need new strings." Especially on a guitar with strings obviously missing. 

Comment by FloridaGull on Thursday

OK - so Jud's posting -

is a nicer guitar...but this one is on Goodwill!  ;-)

Comment by Dave Fengler on Thursday

Art & Ugly is more like it.

Comment by FloridaGull on Thursday

An Art & Lutherie AMI Nylon on Goodwill:

Currently $24.99 - 6 days left - $22 shipping...

Large Picture



Good used condition, with some scuffs and scratches. Dust present on most surfaces. Headstock has some minor dings and dents. Tuners, nut, neck, fretboard, and bridge are all in good condition. Bridge is beginning to lift slightly from body. Neck appears to be straight, but action gets a bit higher toward the sound hole. There is a truss rod in place. Guitar may need new strings. No case included."
Comment by FloridaGull on Thursday

Well, at least go look at the instrument - it isn't like Cary is across the state... ;-)

The Loudbox Mini and S&P Folk will probably sell pretty quickly - perhaps even on this forum...

Comment by michael schwartz on Thursday the guitar and promise to sell the other equipment ASAP...if you don't try, you won't know. "better to ask for forgiveness than permission"??

Comment by Jud Hair on Thursday

Yes ... I need to sell the S&P, and my Fishman Loudbox Mini ... by the time I get my stuff sold, though, the Seagull Folk would probably be gone. :-(

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on Thursday

Jud, you really can't argue with FloridaGull's logic. The "one in, one out" principle is in play so there shouldn't be any pushback and you get a better feeling nut width.

Looking forward to your NGD post.......
