"I sent an email to the salesman I purchased the Seagull Entourage Grand from at Guitar Center with the receipt sales number, and the serial number of the guitar which was on the receipt and asked if it was new or used when I bought it.   He…"

"I did buy it from Guitar Center.   I wrote to Michel at Seagull to get the "born on" date.   He wrote back that it was a brand new model. first made in 2011.   If you go by their year end date, it was made some time after…"

"Did you buy it at Guitar Center? The Entourage Grand Rustic is a new GC exclusive.  I don't think they've been out but a few months at most.  I've played it several times during my lunchtime GC visits.  It is a sweet…"

" I understand completely. The S6 is a very nice guitar, and they sound wonderful."

"I know that I too like smaller body guitars as I have been playing on a classical for so many years.  I almost went w/ a parlor seagull I saw but instead opted for the S6 purely on reputation and because I didn't want to put it  back…"

"What was your criteria for "needing" a smaller guitar? Is the Seagull Grand properly setup yet?  Is it new or used? Did you get a chance to compare the S6 side by side with the Seagull Grand before you took the Grand? we gots to know"

"We are still at it after almost 2 months. He came by this afternoon for another lesson.   Since I wrote the original post, I discovered that I needed a smaller guitar, so traded my S6 in for a Seagull Entourage Grand Rustic.   I love this…"

"Great looking guitars and awesome story!   I started playing back when I was 14 or so but just fiddled around w/ a few riffs until I discovered girls loved guitar players...then I was racing to learn songs.  I played long enough to master…"

Jud Hair replied to Axeman's discussion Guitar Sizes in the Godin Linup in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ...
"The finish on Entourage Rustic line-up of models is sort of like the name implies ... "rustic".  It has the darker sunburst effect, but the finish itself, if anything, is even less "glossy" than the S-6.  Meanwhile, the…"

FloridaGull replied to Axeman's discussion Guitar Sizes in the Godin Linup in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ...
"Perhaps the sunburst finish on the Entourage adds a bit to the depth of the SG finish?  I have not played or held an Entourage, but have played and held an S6, and the S6 cedar top felt like the top of the lefty Martin I had - almost like raw…"

Axeman replied to Axeman's discussion Guitar Sizes in the Godin Linup in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ...
"I believe it has a semi-gloss.   I just think it is much thicker than what was on the S6.   As a matter of fact, the finish reminds me of what is on my Vantage guitar. Lots more durable, and less prone to scratching."

"Axeman --- Sounds like a great match for you!  My middle finger from wrist to tip is slightly over 8 inches, so you see my problem ...  :-("

"Are there different versions?  The one I played at GC was standard Entourage Rustic SG finish."

"Thanks! This guitar plays so easily for me. I just finished doing some finger exercises on it, and maybe it's the smaller nut, or maybe it's because it's so much more comfortable for me to hold, I don't have the answer, but I…"

"Congratulations! The finish difference is a semi-gloss - SG - what the S6 was - vs. a high-gloss - HG - what your new one is. And thanks for answering what I was going to ask - whether it is a 12 or 14 fretter... Enjoy!"
