Gary Ellis replied to Jud Hair's discussion The Frustrated Gull squawking his concerns ... opinions/comments welcome in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Hi Jud. I've had a Folk and a Parlour but the small size is something I could never get used to and both are long gone. Does the OM feel small? I would like something other than a dread but there is a cost to GAS and sell."

"I lie my guitar on the sofa. I take all 6 strings off. I hold the guitar in my lap and wipe down the top and fret board with a dry cloth. I then hold the guitar between my legs the lower bout resting on the carpet and starting at the high E I change…"

"65 is the new 55 I hope you have lots of years left and your guitars are considered antiques when you hand them down."

"Well it's Canada's Thanksgiving next week and the sad but official end of the cottage season. The only highlight for me is, my S6 comes home for the winter. The only guitar I own that is built tough enough so I don't have to hide it…"

"FloridaGull, I remember that sale and we talked about here. I called the Best Buy in Buffalo NY they had one and it was about $150 off and the Canadian dollar was above the US. I ended up reading a thread on the AGF which talked me out of it.…"

"I was a little smitten but I am not a cutaway fan. If was a straight slope shoulder dread it may have followed me home."

"Visited Mountain Music in Hamilton Ontario and low and behold in their high end room they had a artist Studio. Very very nice. High gloss finish was amazing. The rosewood was as good looking as the Gibson and Martin beside it. The ebony was perfect.…"

Gary Ellis replied to Diamond Dave's discussion A&L dreadnought...grumble grumble grumble in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Fair enough Dave. I agree the money to ship your guitar was lots and I don't disagree with your ultimate decisions.. I like and enjoy your comments on the forums where I see you but you raise the neck angle issue and Seagull guitars a lot. I…"

"No offence Dave but I have owned 2 S6's an Artist Mosaic, SWS dread, Natural Elements, S6 Folk and I have not seen a bad neck yet. I live in Southern Ontario with a large selection of Gulls to choose from and I have yet to see a single neck…"

Gary Ellis replied to Kevan Tolley's discussion New Larrivee in the group Larrivee Lovers
"Well said Craig. Its a real mystery that Larrivee does not get more attention. With the amount of money people are spending on Asian guitars I think they would be very surprised on what they are passing up in a high end North American family owned…"

"I have bought a few guitars at the 12th Fret.. The store is amazing and I describe it as more of a museum experience. I find it a touch intimidating because at any given time the quality of the tire kicker killing time is unnerving for me. But the…"

Gary Ellis replied to CaliGull's discussion Anyone ever sell a 'gull and buy another one like it later? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"You and I have traveled similar paths. I sold my first S6, replaced it a few other gull models including a cedar folk. The S6 cedar folk is nothing like an Original S6 so as of 2 weeks ago It's déjà vu all over again. I have…"
