Sweet Weir man. You are lucky. I saw a Garcia model on one of the auction sites and I've had cars that didn't cost that much!

@Cameron, I haven't seen a 9 string guitar. What info can you share? Do you have one?

I have heard no complaints about the Seagulls, they seem like good instruments. I don't get to play as often as I should or even want to, but did get some nice strumming time in yesterday.

...theSeagull's a dreadnaught, and has a very nice warm sound in spite of the fact that it's a spruce top....the neck width is a little wider than the Alvarez...but it's a nice switch....

Here's a pic of the Seagull...

@David Susman...the AF410S pictured, in my opinion is a much better Artist series guitar than the ones offered now...better bracing, tone, and playability in my opinion.  They don't make this one anymore, they replaced it with the AF60, which I bought in December, and have had no luck with.  I replaced it with a Seagull Maritime SWS HG QI,  much happier now!

Nice guitar John. I was poking around the internet the other day and learned that Jerry Garcia played an Alvarez-Yairi during his sets with Dave Grisham. Those are some of my favourite recordings. Bluegrass and folk music. Garcia's guitar and Grisham's mandolin really shine.
