"In Colorado, except for the monsoon season in July and August, humidification is desperately required.   As my Luthier buddy likes to remark, "Colorado kills guitars"."

Seagull dealership a mile from the house.  I'd honestly had never heard of them until the shop guy put one in my lap while I was testing various Takemine's, Alvarez's and Ibanez's etc.  I was prepared to spend a little more to get what I wanted, but as soon as I felt the S-6, I knew it was the one for me.  I quit playing the $700 Takemine and went straight to the cash register with the $400 'Gull.

If you haven't seen it yet, take a look at the nice youtube I posted earlier of the Seagull guitar factory tour led by Robert Godin himself.  Very educational!
