6 Seagulls?

We must have an award for having the most Seagulls ;)

I only have 4, and one is an S8.

For a guy with only 2 - 5 years playing experience you have an impressive list of guitars! I'm jealous since I only have five guitars, but I'm catching up! :)

Thanks for joining the Mentors group and please let me know what I can do for you.
