"I bought a Road Runner dread sized case which fits well. I keep a pad under the headstock along with the humidifier for the winter. Not sloshing about in the case and it's a good, solid case with solid latches."

"For my Seagull performer I use the Martin SP series and I'm happy with those. But I actually like the 80/20 Bronze ones more than the phosphor bronze. But that's when I play live. It feels like the tone is longer and a bit warmer somehow.…"

"Yes, as far as I can tell, the Ibanez "Artwood" line runs the gamut of pricing and quality.  Just the fact that it was so hard for me to find detailed info on this particular guitar turned me off before I ever really got turned on."

"I have an old Ibanez Artwood I plan to take to my next campfire - it would be a great for kindling.  Probably a decent guitar at one time, but it has led a troubled life."

Louis,

I was surfing around the site and came across a few of your postings. Congrats on taking up the guitar! I have a "mentors group" that you might be interested in. I have a few instructional videos posted there and custom make them for interested learners. Thought you'd like to know.

LOL ... You've got GAS (guitar acquisition syndrome) ... I had an attack just today when I saw a very nice looking Larivee 09 model for sale online.  It had a 1.75 nut width which I could live with, but the price of $1,200 (which was quite reasonable) is just too rich for my blood right now.

Louis ---

 

It's never too late if you're dedicated!

 

I can guarantee you that you will progress faster with your S-6 than you would with any comparably priced guitar. 

 

Is youRs the regular size neck 1.8 Inch or the "slim" 1.72 inch??  I love mine because of the wider neck and string spacing.

 

BTW ... I am a huge Neil Young fan.  Saw him in concert a month or so ago in Durham,NC.  Once in a lifetime treat for myself.
