"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."

Hoosier Picker replied to Martin van Dooremalen's discussion Finally - 12 string NGD!!! in the group 12-String Guitar
"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. If…"

Hoosier Picker replied to FloridaGull's discussion NGD! Cort L450-O NS... in the group Small Body Guitars
"Looks like a nice "Hog" FG!   I'm sure it sounds great with the all mahogany sound.  Looks similar to my GS Mini hog, only bigger! Enjoy!"

Greg Ballantyne replied to Hoosier Picker's discussion Any bad experiences with Seagull 12 strings? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"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.…"

"Sadly, I would be surprised if Seagull would honor a warranty for a second owner of a two-year-old guitar.  Doesn't hurt to ask, but I would doubt it. Also, the described damage is curious. Your guitar had become acclimated to a Chicago…"

Any bad experiences with Seagull 12 strings?

Last summer I posted my Seagull 12 string on Craigs List and had a reply from a real nice fellow in Florida.  I held the guitar for him until November, when he would be passing through on his way back home from Chicago.  He called me a few days ago and said that in late January after sitting the guitar on a stand at his church, he went to pick it up and the top had a big crack in it and the bridge had appeared to be lifting some.  He took it to a luthier and he told him it could be due to some…See More

Hoosier Picker commented on Jim Handsfield's group Taylor Owners
"Thanks guys!  I do not believe I will be putting the pick guard on, as I love its looks without it.  FG, how do you post a picture without a link?  That is the only way it would let me post it.  Mike, an I-pad is my only option…"

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!

Always good to have a friend. You've got a great collection of guitars to play.

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
