"A friend of mine has an older S6 cutaway, dread of course - I'm not a cutaway guy in any case, but that S6 (I think is 10 or 12 years old) is a sweet sounding guitar. It's the guitar that made me look for and buy a cedar top, a Seagull…"
"This will be a lone opinion..... keep the strap tied off on the headstock. That's the only way I've played guitars for the last 40 years, plus or minus.....makes you feel a little like a 60'small folk singer"
"Congrats Dave on the S6
You'll certainly find yourself in like minded company here, with perhaps the occasional dissenting opinion.... I ran across a Maritime 5 years ago, had never heard of Seagull at the time - now I've got three of…"

"Changed strings on two guitars tonight - both Seagulls. Put d'Addario EJ16s on both, officially ending my excursion into EB ABs. Not that the EBs are bad strings, but they're not for me. My Maritime really appreciated the change of…"
"That walnut mini jumbo was the one I nearly took home last year. The one I played was a very nice sounding and playing guitar. If are serious, playing one will seal the deal. Insread, I got the S6 Coastline Folk, because it was for my mom. Now…"
"Alright, all this talk about bridge pins has got me looking at some genuine snakewood pins from Stew Mac..... If I order any I'll be sure to let you all know how wrong I was about pins ability to improve tone......."
