"Robert - I'll echo John's comment  below. The 12th fret website sure is a pleasure to look through. If I lived nearby that place I'd be in trouble......"

Greg Ballantyne replied to Jud Hair's discussion Godin/Seagull policy on selling broken and damaged guitars in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I'm a "glass half full" sort of fellow. If Godin has a business model that allows them to maintain the attractive pricing for high quality North American made instruments, I am all for it. I believe that same business model allows a…"

Greg Ballantyne replied to Chuck Snyder's discussion Check Out My new S6 Entourage in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I was curious due to the fact that your guitar looks like a short scale model. For example, in this picture one guitar is a short scale and the other a long scale (both Seagulls). I looked at several sites that identify a serial number format…"

Greg Ballantyne replied to Chuck Snyder's discussion Check Out My new S6 Entourage in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Looking at the space between the pickguard and the saddle, and therefore the space between the saddle and sound hole, I believe your S6 is a short scale. I thought Seagull had gone to the long scale exclusively. Any chance you can post the serial…"

"Welcome Chuck - and I know you're going to love your Seagull. Like a lot of us, I'm betting you won't want to stop at one....."

Greg Ballantyne replied to Harris Coe's discussion Maritime SWS models in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I have not yet found the way better Taylor, and I've looked fairly dilligently. I could call some of the Taylor models better than some of the Seagull models, mainly in the playability dept. and far less so in the sound dept. But when comparing…"

"I'm evidently a big body guitar man.... I have a Maritime SWS HG dread, and an NE cedar top dread. I believe I've started and participated in a number of interesting discussions over the last couple of years that collected a range of…"

"I have one also, Maritime dreadnaught spruce & mahogany HG. I believe I've had it for about 3 1/2 years. A wonderful guitar."

Greg Ballantyne replied to Ron Shaffer's discussion My second Seagull... in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Ron I'm not saying that the Artist line isn't a great value. It truly does represent a great value. When you think about the "big name" guitars, and the prices their top of the line models command, the Seagull Artist line…"

"I bought the NE sight unseen - first time I bought without playing. The shop owner ordered it and said if I didn't take it, he would hang it on the wall. I took it though, and have not looked back.  The excusion I played last night was an…"

Greg Ballantyne commented on Jud Hair's group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Saw & played the Excursion last night. Very nice little guitar, the neck felt good (except the width, thats just me) with suprisingly good sound considering the all laminate construction. It did however cure my GAS for a small bodied guitar that…"

"Nothing wrong with a change in the seasons. I lived in south GA a couple of years - no change of season noticable. Mosquitos waiting by the door 12 months a year. I also lived in North Alabama for 7 years - seasonal change at least was noticable,…"

Greg Ballantyne replied to Gary Welch's discussion DIY in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"On my NE the saddle is not loose enough to fall out when the strings are removed, but there is no need for a tool to move it.   D'Addario light (EJ16) are my string of choice -I keep six or eight sets around, mainly because I change…"

"Robert I'm addicted to the sound of new strings, so I'm changing mine once a month (on several guitars - nother subject) but on my NE I've noticed that proper "seating" of the saddle in the bridge when changing strings has…"

What kind of Aria is it?  I had an LW-15 - nice, but I think it had a 1 5/8" nut!  Ouch (compared to the Seagull)
