Three Gulls Roasting by an open fire ....

Aluminum....not just for siding and TV-dinners anymore!

Well, I bought a couple of sets of the new Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze strings after reading the reviews; got the medium-light (12-54) set. Usually play w/ the D'Addario EJ16's on my Maritime MJ,…Continue

Godin/Seagull policy on selling broken and damaged guitars 32 Replies

Okay ... so color me a bit disenchanted. For several years now, I have been highly critical of online dealers like "Slightly Touched" and "Sounds Cheap" guitars because they listed scratched,…Continue

Lions and Tigers....and Richlite!...Oh My! 8 Replies

As if that discussion about B-stock and C-stock wasn't enough, I inadvertently learned that Godin is using Richlite to replace ebony for the fingerboards on several guitars, such as the ACS. As…Continue

Anyone ever sell a 'gull and buy another one like it later? 9 Replies

Well I did.  I became 'gull-less for several months, selling off my SWS folk, my cedar folk, and my S6.  Too many guitars, not enough play.  Despite my denial, the S6 was just too unwieldy, as are my…Continue

I live in Connecticut about an hour from the Ovation factory.  I wonder if they do factory tours???  It might be interesting to see.

I'm no fan of the low end Ovation guitars.  I've had (2) of the low end thin body plastic bowl AE 128's.  1 my wife bought (I had told her not to) and 1 was given to me for our kids schools music program (I've been collecting donated acoustic guitars).  Both of them where unplayable because the action was way high due to the neck being pulled forward by the string tension.  I'm guessing the plastic bowl body isn't strong enough to keep the neck in place.

no more american-made  Ovations and possibly fewer Guilds (some were made in same factory)

Fender strikes again :( Buys brands and ends up using them for imports.

Steve, sorry the images would not open.  I just sent them as attachments to your email.

Semper Pax, John

Comment by Steve Byrne 16 hours ago

John, I couldn't open your images, but that is what I was hoping for. I think most of the seagull gig bags of that size are actually made for the S6, since that is their big seller. Would you mind going to all the trouble of emailing the pics to me at prstevehildreth at frontiernet dot net? I would appreciate it. Thanks again, John. Are you satisfied with the fit?

Comment by Robert Williamson 16 hours ago

lets see.. 2 Seagulls (Quebec), 2 Fenders (1 China), 1 Epiphone (China)

i feel a need to catch up with FloridaGull

Hey Steve,

Here is an image of my Entourage Mini Jumbo Rustic Q1 and its Seagull case.  The dealer said the padded case that went with is for an S6.

And here it is inside the case.

Hopefully, this image stuff not only worked, but might also be useful to you.

Semper Pax, John

and another reply disappeared before i finished typing it!

what is going on..

I love Charis

so pretty, you want to get dressed up to date it.

after my near-death experiance playing a $10,000 Matsuda

i could easily buy a Charis. and then hang it in a bulletproof case on the wall.

id be too scared to play

Comment by Robert Williamson 16 hours ago

@Steve i use the Tric Deluxe case for my mini-jumbo.. I added a neck rest to keep it from shifting around.

It site serach actually worked , I would link you to my review of the case.

found it:

Comment by Steve Byrne 17 hours ago

Thanks, Robert and Florida, for your help on the rustic mini jumbo/case issue. I have two dreads from Godin, a Seagull and a Simon Patrick, both with the heavily padded gig bags which I like. I will probably just try them in those when I get it and if it fits, I will order one of the ones they have on sale at Mus Friend. If anyone has the rustic minijumbo and uses one of the seagull cases for it, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks. Neat forum.

I have 2 Godin products (Canada), 2 Walden products (China), and 2 Guild GAD's (China) - obviously, I am not concerned with "cachet"... ;-)

I would suggest you have someone like Jay Lichty (he's in this community, and makes beautiful guitars) make a custom for you...

There is a Charis Small Jumbo at Wolfe Guitars:

Englemann spruce top - Michigan Black Walnut back and sides...


They're asking $3750...


This one is a dread, but really nice...


They are asking $2750...


Finally, a Breedlove Focus Jumbo:

They are askling $2585 for this one...

Hope you find these interesting... :-)
