Dan Halbert replied to Robert Williamson's discussion What's The Buzz? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"It looks like that, yes. I bought it 2 or 3 years ago and I actually ordered it from some place in Australia (!). Shipped to the US it was still a few dollars cheaper than the Stew-Mac. Sounds like you succeeded in fixing things. Great!"

Dan Halbert replied to Robert Williamson's discussion What's The Buzz? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I have used a fresh single-edge razor blade (blade side) as a fret rocker on the upper frets. I have the equivalent of the Stew-Mac action gauge, which I like. I got my gauge on eBay for about $15. I also got a Baroque on eBay for much less, but…"

Dan Halbert replied to Robert Williamson's discussion What's The Buzz? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"You may have one or more frets that are not quite level. If you have a short straightedge ("fret rocker") you can check this by putting the straightedge on frets 1-2-3 and trying to rock it to and fro. Then try 2-3-4 etc. and you go up the…"

Dan Halbert replied to Jud Hair's discussion String Spacing on Gulls ... food for thought/discussion? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I am the poster of the original message on AGF that Jud included in his first posting on this thread. When I needed a new nut for an old Seagull I have, I asked GraphTech if the PQ-1801 was right, and they told me it was the OEM nut they supply…"

Dan Halbert replied to Harold Hensley's discussion Neck reset in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"This will work if it's an older model (pre-2006 or so). On newer models, the neck is epoxied to the body and is also thicker and inset. I did a neck reset on such an older model. I tried the "flossing" technique. It was very tedious…"

Dan Halbert replied to zeontestpilot's discussion Interested in Seagull... in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"The mini-jumbo is very close in size to the Taylor GA (xx4) body size. The lower bout is wide but the waist is narrow, so it sits lower on your leg."

Dan Halbert replied to James Baxter Bain's discussion String height in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I would say that's a wee bit high, but if there's plenty of saddle left it should not be a problem. I usually aim for 6/64" action on the low E and 5/64" or so on the high e. To lower the string height by 1/64" at the 12th,…"

Dan Halbert replied to Marty's discussion My new Alvarez AP70 in the group Alvarez Guitars
"I've had one for a couple of years and really like it. It's my everyday guitar. The neck seemed a little low to me due to the small body size, so I use it with a NeckUp guitar support."

Dan Halbert replied to Tony K.'s discussion What's Godin's best selling guitar? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Michel Bélanger is a good person to know about. He's Godin Customer Support, the person at the other end of info@godinguitars.com. He answers questions cheerfully and quickly. For instance, he helped identify and date the Seagull…"

"I did replace the Cleartone strings this evening, and the EJ16's (sameare much more comfortable. Tone sounds better too, but it's a bit early to say how it will turn out. I was confused at first when I took off the old strings, because…"

"Mine is perfect. It does not have an "SF" or "FS" serial number, which would indicate a factory second. This appears to be a stock-reduction sale."
