Hi Gulls ... just FYI ... if you want to go back and find an old discussion topic, click on "View All" ... at the bottom of the Discussion Forum" area up above under the photo of my three Gulls.

Tony - that is actually a Seagull Maritime SWS Mahogany HG Q1 (I took it down to play a bit on it), and just below it the same without the Q1. There were no S&P all mahogany guitars, but they had the Woodland Pro Folk and Parlor models both spruce and sunburst in another area.

I was really surprised to so many Godin 12 strings in stock too: 1 each of A&L 12's with and w/o electronics, 1 each of S&P Woodland 12's with and w/o electronics, 1 each of Seagull Excursion Walnut 12's with and w/o electronics and 1 each of Seagull S12 with and w/o electronics.

Martin, if I'm not mistaken, in the 1rst pic on the top row towards the back, I "think" I see a Simon & Patrick Woodland Pro Folk Mahogany.  Do yourself a favor and do NOT play that guitar....because if you do, you will fall in love and want to buy it immediately!  lol.  Happened to me recently and I'm still in love with the thing, the novelty has not worn off.  BE-a-YU-tiful guitar.  8-D  Probably the best sounding folk size guitar Godin makes imho and I've played them all.  :guitar:

Martin...that's the biggest flock of Gulls I've seen(even in a foto)!!

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on Friday

I went to my favourite guitar store during lunch and while I went there to just browse and get some stress relief from a hectic morning at work it looks like I hit the jackpot!!!

Looks like they had recently received a shipment from Godin as I counted 89 Godin products in the acoustic room, dwarfing the Taylor, Martin and Gibson offering. Every guitar in those pictures is a Godin product with a few more in other corners. Lots of various Seagulls (no Artist series), S&P, A&L and even La Patrie and a Multiac. And to put the proverbial icing on the cake I was the only one in there until a few minutes before I had to leave. The time went by awfully fast but at least I feel better sitting behind my desk this afternoon.

I may have to go back next week during a lunch hour again.......

Not only isn't it worth that much in good condition, they butchered the top with the patch instead of taking the time to humidify it over a few days.  It's ugly.  Maybe $50 ugly.  :?)

Comment by Jud Hair on Friday

Dave ... I sold a near mint 2011 Seagull S-6 with embroidered Seagull gig bag for $275 and felt okay with the price I got.  In some alternate universe you may see a "vintage" model with all that baggage going for that price.  There's probably someone out there looking for just that guitar.  But, they will be hard to find.

1988 Seagull Acoustic for sale on CraigsList.

This is a 1988 Seagull acoustic guitar. It was found at a yard sale in a badly ignored state. The photos tell the tale, basically, but to let you know what was done--the top had a crack that wouldn't close or line up, so that had to have a piece of filler spruce put in. The color match is decent at a short distance, but it's hard to match the effect of UV on an old finish. It is structurally very sound. It also had a neck reset done, so there is significant fall-away on the part of the fretboard that sits on the guitar top. This is also a very structurally sound repair. An oversize bridge was installed to compensate for the reset, and there's a custom bone saddle in that. A fret level was done, also. The guitar is a very cool vintage piece, and you don't come across old Seagulls often. It has all of the cosmetic wear that you would think, but it's a solid guitar with a great tone for the money. Feel free to ask any questions, please. $290/bo.

$290 for a butchered Seagull???!!!  If they had taken the time to over humidify it, they could have gotten the crack to close.  Now it looks like crap.  I wouldn't give him $50 for it.

Indie . . Bollywood.  Good one!

Can add Banks, Ohio, Land, blowing, etc. etc.  Folk music goes well with Seagull Acoustic or any other acoustic.
