"Hi, 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…"

"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. Gary"

Harry Lindahl commented on Jud Hair's group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"That's quite cheap. I had a Maritime Dread. The nut was 1.72, not 1.8, which was too narrow for me, so I sold it. The sound was ok."

"Hi, I change my strings taking them all off and then replacing them. No harm in  that. Easier to wipe the fingerboard clean and maybe put some oil."

Harry Lindahl replied to Jud Hair's discussion Survey/Poll: Song with the most memorable "intro" in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"The simplest and most memorable intro for me is "The Hard Days Night" by the Beatles. It is just one open chord with a normal guitar tuning. Efficient!"

Harry Lindahl replied to Ian Miller's discussion Counselling needed! (or consoling) in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"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…"

Thanks for your impressions, Harry!  I hope you don't mind - I copied and pasted your comment to the Walden group for all to benefit from your thoughts...

By the way, are there any Finnish guitar manufacturers of note, like Martin or Taylor or Breedlove here in the States, or Maton in Australia?

Any CO2000's pop up yet?

Did you get a chance to play the CO2000 yet? ;-)

Hi,

Since you're a mandolin player, maybe you enjoy this (click on the link, then on the small photos):

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.

Hey Harry!  Welcome to the AGM online community.  I see you play a variety of Seagulls ... hope you'll consider joining our special chat fourum devoted to Seagull/Godin guitars.  Check us out here: http://www.acousticguitarcommunity.com/group/SeagullAficionados
