"That's what great about music....you're never too old to learn something new....or just enjoy the beauty of music. I too have to vote for a nylon string guitar.....maybe a small bodied A&L.....a fairly small investment. I would…"

"Go for it. I have an old Harmony F-style electric mando from the late 60's (a genuine pawn shop purchase).....sometimes these show up on ebay for a decent price. I had suffered through violin lessons years ago (Correction: it was the listeners…"

Greg Ballantyne replied to Joe Brancato's discussion How about a Seagull Road Show??? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"The shop in town hangs a lot more Taylors on the wall than Seagulls, or other brands. They have a Taylor section that clearly shows they are probably first and foremost a Taylor dealer. But I don't think they ever held one of these Road Shows.…"

"I think the dealer bears most or all of the cost for a Taylor Road Show. In other words, it's not a service that Taylor provides for its dealers free of charge. I heard the guys talking (the Road Show players and the store owner) before the…"

"The 'bang for the buck' reason against a Seagull/Godin Road Show is a good point. However, 'good will' is also worth something to a company's bottom line in the long run. The Taylor literature depicting Bob Taylor as an…"

"Maybe one of those decisions that help keep the pricing where it should be.... I was lucky the shop in town had a coupleof Maritimes when I went to town for new strings a few years ago. They had a couple of Performers also since then, but mainly…"

"Agreed Jud, When I look at the calendar of road shows Taylor puts on it has to be a huge expense (although I'd be willing to bet that the amount of newly voiced 800 series guitars they sell thanks to the road shows will…"

"Much as I like the idea, I am not sure a road show would be cost-effective for Godin. Running a road show requires personnel and guitar transportation. The higher end of the price range for Godin guitars is in the lower to middle range for a Taylor…"

"Same here Martin ... one shop has the local exclusive on Seagull/Simon & Patrick and the other has Norman and A&L. Neither carry any high end models.  My personal opinion is that Godin is not nearly aggressive enough in marketing to…"

"I don't know about distributors everywhere else, but in my neck of the woods Godin seems to have limited who carries what brands. One dealer has lots of Seagull and S&P with a few A&L. Another has Norman and A&L.…"

"I guess i should consider my self lucky that i had a dealer within a few blocks of my house up until last year. They never had more than about 10 examples of Godin lines: A&L, Godin, Seagull at any time.But they did have the Godin Montreal …"

"It'd most likely take a long time to get anywhere near Northern California, but I'd love a Godin Road Show! As time goes on, more variety is showing up locally, but I've never seen a Godin electric, and all-solid acoustics remain rare…"

"I've thought it was a great idea since I bought my S-6 back in 2011 ... then I tried in vain to find examples of the other higher end Seagulls to help form an opinion and make a potential  buying decision. I even asked the dealer if…"

"Sounds good to me. We finally got a Seagull dealer here in western Wisconsin, but he also carries four or five other brands, so he only has a few Seagulls at a time. I'd love to try out every Seagull model. Someone might drop the head office a…"
