"Sometimes when I a bad nail, I gotta cut it and wait for it to grow so I can reshape. I saw a video of how James Taylor handles his nails in this vid. Gonna need to try this one day when a nail is damaged and I have a performance coming…"
Those Alaska picks are an acceptable solution.
They work well on the upstroke for index, middle and ring fingers, but are very tricky on the downstroke: rasgueado is out of question, of course.
Besides, they wear out real fast and, depending on…"
"Like a number of others here i have frail nails, and do woodworking/renovation around the house.
this winter and spring I have broken my thumb and index nails 3 times. As soon as they became long enough to be playable, some task causes me to break…"
"I've had it on for 4 days now and so far it is working well, nails are hard. Little hard to get it on evenly but with practice I should get better.
Appreciate your advise and support. I'll keep you up to date on how it is working.
The only kind of superglue I use is the LIQUID one. It comes in small flasks, with a brush, just like ladies' nail varnish. I spread a thin layer and let dry, then I spread another layer, & so on. Layers should be very thin, but,…"
"I am afraid, you don't find a Seagull with that nut width. However, in the same price range you can find a Walden guitar. Excellent guitars for their price. You could try the CO 2000. It has a 1,75 nut and is a really nice guitar."
"Bought a Maritime SWS Rosewood just before Chirstmas last year. Excellent guitar. The sound as new was better than the Artist Studio. Sold it because of the narrower nut. Did not suite my style of playing. To anybody, who is accustomed to and likes…"
You're probably right about the costs of customs and shipping, etc. The problems we face in the USA with Seagull is that shop owners generally do not stock anything but the S-6 and the Entourage models, because those are the ones they know that they can sell easily. Occasionally you run into a Maritime SWS SG mahogany on the wall in a shop, but I have never actually even seen a Maritime rosewood for sale anywhere. The only avenue to getting one for most of us in this country would be to have a shop special order one, which I guess is probably easier than trying to work with payments and shipping from Finland for sure. Cheers!
Yes ... I was always sort of mystified as to why Seagull chose to only produce the rosewood Maritime with the 1.72 inch nut. You might want to notify the members of the forum that you have it for sale. Although we aren't an intermediary for transactions, several Seagulls have changed hands among forum members informally in this way.
Glad to see you've joined us on Seagull Spoken Here ... feel free to pitch right in on the conversations and post some photos of your guitars. You're actually the first member we've had who owns the rosewood version of the Maritime.
