Robert - I've played the Excursion walnut 12, and in typical Seagull fashion - and that is a good thing -  it is a very easy playing 12, like the Coastline S12. And it's really at a price point that allows you to take a chance on a 12 without too great a loss if you decide it's not for you. I, personally, prefer binding but the Excursion's top and side joint is better, IMHO, than the Martin DX series 12, at least the one of each I've played.

Hi Robert

I have an Excursion folk, bought it just over 2 weeks ago, think it is great and play it all the time.

We did the Martin "Behind the Scenes" factory tour yesterday. It was awesome!  I took 800MB of pictures including a couple of short video's in the museum.  The area lost power towards the end of the tour.  We ended up going to lunch, hoping they wouldn't close the plant.  Power was back on when we got back and we finished the tour.  I started working on writing it up today at work, it may take a couple of days.

Here's a few pictures as a tease.

i really like the no binding look of the Excursions, but nearly all of them have laminated tops :(  That $319 walnut 12 with solid spruce top piques my interest .....

Comment by Derick Chatfield on July 11, 2014 at 1:39pm

Yes agree with you Martin, the Maritime looks a good buy.

But unfortunately I'm in the UK.

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on July 11, 2014 at 1:18pm

Hmmm....kind of quiet on here lately so.....

Not that I'm looking, but a local chain is having a "Great Canadian Guitar Sale" of course featuring Godin products. A Maritime SWS SG CW w/Q1 (at least that is what is pictured) for Cdn$560. Seems like a good deal but not sure how they do at shipping or on-line purchases. probably a better deal for Canadian gulls if anyone is gassing.

Phil ... amazing player!! (love the tuning pegs arrangement on guitar! :)  Here's my favorite demonstration of the art of building layers on a looper. KT Tunstall is incredible.

For all my "looper" friends, here's a link to a performance you should watch...

Yes, but can he play "Gloria"? ;-)
