"Our 2 Seagull 6-string guitars have been Florida and back (southern Ontario) three times in the last 2 years, and our 3 Seagulls (12-string included this time) are about to go again. No issues whatsoever. Also, my 12-string and our other 2…"
"I've been in Orlando for 25 years and have never experienced any humidity related problems except that nylon string guitars sound muddy when it is humid. The idea " I know from past experience that when I have taken guitars to Florida…"
"I would probably go with a Taylor 814ce. I have a very nice'98 model, but would like to have the newly redesigned 2014 model. The 814ce is just an all around great model for all styles of guitar playing,strumming or fingerpicking.…"
"Thanks, everyone! The dealer I bought it from is no longer in business, so I will have to deal directly with Seagull. Does anyone know how to contact Seagull.? Is it by phone, or E-mail? I will check their website to see if I can…"
"You really should contact them first, obtain an RMA (return merchandise authorization), before attempting to ship a guitar back. Most businesses will not accept an unexpected delivery and the guitar will be returned to you - postage due."
"I thought I was done buying guitars, but after reading nothing but great reviews on the Taylor 150e, I may have to rethink that. I recently sold my Seagull Coastline 12, since I really did not play it that much, but for $100 more than the Seagull, I…"
"My FIRST question to the guy would be same as Greg's. How was this guitar stored when not in use for the entire time the new owner had it before it spontaneously damaged.
I also find it strange that it would crack from humidity.
"Cracks usually result from shrinkage, or wood drying out. Drying out could also cause the bridge to lift, as dried out joints shrink away from the glue. Of course expanding the wood (humidification) without relieving string tension could result in…"
"I would think that if it was a manufacture defect it would have probably presented the problems sooner. I had a similar experience once. I think Jud is right in his advice to just let it go, unless you really want to go out of your way to help him.…"
Hi! For some reason, I have a lot of difficulty navigating this site. I did post photos on the group page under "Gear". Hope that helps and let me know what you think! Love the Artist and waited a very long time for it!
My pleasure Mark. Enjoy exploring alternate tunings. My favorite right now is DADF#AD, which I believe is also called "open-D". It's close to DADGAD but has a somewhat smoother sound. Led Zep used it a lot, as did Joni. ~Michael
