I was a subscriber to the magazine for many years.  Then I let it lapse recently, as I felt it wasn't worth the $40 for renewal.  I am an intermediate hobbyist with a broad range of guitars (Martin,…Continue

The Merlin. Anyone got one?

So I have been out of the loop here for some time, what with having sold my second S6 and my folk cedar (not playing enough to keep).  I must admit I have fallen for my La Patrie Concert and have been focusing on classical for the past several months.  So it was a great surprise when I received a Godin email newsletter this morning and learned of the Merlin instrument which, after doing a Google search, has been out and available for some time.  I watched some You Tubes and it looks like an…See More

Thank you! I have been fortunate over the years to own two Seagull parlours, different top woods; an S6 folk; a Simon&Patrick 12-string, and a 6-string all Maple Seagull dreadnought with a pickup. The little ones are the best guitars I ever played. They were older models, one in the humble range, the other an Artist model. To be honest, not that much difference in their sound, both full and carrying, incredible fingerstyle.

They have a voice like nothing else, and over time just become more expressive. Tuned open, another planet of sounds is there to explore. I think those two inspired more growth in my playing skill and level of music theory than any other instrument. I know you won't be dissappointed. They travel easily, on foot or by conveyance. Use a hardcase though. Best wishes, CaliGull. Let me know the music you are playing.

I am soooo stoked to get my Seagull...I've been back and forth tryin' to decide between the S6 Original QI, or the Coastline Cedar GT QI...I think it'll be the latter....bur either way, they're both GREAT guitars from what I hear, and the research I've done!

I haven't ordered it as of yet...but...that's where I'm gettin' it from....I hear great things about Geartree....

Hi,

Thanks very much for the add!

It's really a great guitar, the Taylor 314CE.

I'm always surprised on out it responds to any style I try to play on it. Very balanced sound.

Do you still own it?

Antonio
