"I put my sticker on a plain black hard case. So it was standard size like most other brands of guitar case logo. You are right about a tube to ship that would be the best way."

"IMG_0821.JPG I had a couple made for my case and have 1 left. If a bunch of you guys want some I can check and see what kind of price I can get them down to and let you know. I think I paid $10-$12 for the ones I bought. So let me know!"

Joe Allen replied to NCgull's discussion "New" 2001 Seagull S12+ needs cleaning help in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"The naptha lighter fluid will clean it and then 000 or 0000 steel wool will fix pic marks and small marks and then go over it again with the lighter fluid to get back to the flat finish unless you want a more polished finish. It is cheap and easy!"

"I know my proxy bid at 8:05 was $214 and was outbid with 5 minutes to go. I was on the highway and pulled over on an off ramp and could not get logged in in time to get it bought. That sucked!!! I was having  GAS looking forward to an old Gull."

Thanks for the welcome Joe.

I have only been playing for 3 years and am still very much a beginner.

I was very reluctant to join any of these groups due to my inexperience and low skill level.

However, I decided to take the plunge and see what transpires.

Thanks Joe, mine is a 1980 as well. When I met it in 2009, loved the blonde and then picked it up and felt the flippin weight and thought " wow this is a beast ". I love the sound and it's structural integrity as well. I use Martin Marquis phosphorus as well and am happy with those. How but the resonance duration if you strike a chord and then put the guitar on its stand ? It rings for like 90 seconds it seems. It's my first Guild but surely not my last. I have been playin a mid 70's Madeira since like 91' (Korean Guild import) and always liked it til I bought the G37. Thanks for the comment and have a great weekend. Playin with friends around a fire tomorrow night...Keep on strummin" !!!

I'll comply as soon as I can. (I'm technologically challenged, so my daughter will have to show me how to post a picture next time she's here from Westerville; usually once or twice a month.)
I'm going to go play my sweet Betsy for a couple of hours.(I'm retired after working 40 years and I'm trying to play 5 or 6 days a week, to make up for all the times I didn't play when I was working) My brother-in-law loves the Brooks & Dunn song, Neon Moon, so I'll have to go brush-up on it. Not too long ago, I could play and sing it fairly well.
