Max Lee replied to Jerry Cave's discussion S6 Folk Photos in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Do you think the pick guard has been added to the guitar.  Most pics I have seen do not have one.  I think I saw one with a pick guard on ebay once, but just thought it must have been added afterwards.... Nice pics!  I do think S6…"

"I've also recently bought a Yamaha LL11 to sit alongside my Seagull S6 Folk.  I found this site specific for Yamahas: http://www.yamahaforums.co.uk/forum/viewforum.php?f=49 ...although it does not look all that active over there.…"

DJ replied to Max Lee's discussion Two restringing questions from a steel string newbie with an S6 Folk... in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I agree with everything Bluesygirl posted. I replaced my TUSQ saddle with bone from Bob. I keep my finger on the pin as I tighten the string until I feel it seat. I use D'addario EXP16 strings and for a day or two I have to retune every time I…"

"Hi Max - Sometimes the pins pop up on my guitars when tightening strings too, depending on the guitar and pins. I think it's good practice to keep an eye on them as you tighten and gently apply pressure when needed to seat them securely.…"

"A lot of people agree that stretching is not necessary. You may find thaat you don't need it."

"I found less problems later when I stretch the strings during the installation.  Generally doing the stretching when winding them up.  I use a method that has worked great for me, illustrated by Bill Baker here.  Though, the demo uses…"

"Well, I've had to go off and do other things and have not got around to stretching them yet. What's bizarre that is that when I've been getting a spare mo this afternoon, I've picked the guitar up to have a quick go and each time…"

"Yes, I have heard of this happening with certain strings.  Doesn't happen with Elixir, D'Addario/Godin, John Pearse, or Martin strings."

"Just a note of caution for people who cut the excess from their strings before winding them (the "Taylor Method").  If you use DR Strings, they state on the packaging to be sure to crimp the end of the string before it is cut. …"

"As a personal preference, I always stretch'em, but some people don't.  Both Martin and Taylor reps recommend stretching in their restringing videos."

"Thank you all for the responses.  Much appreciated.  Hopefully I'll decide on some strings (particularly my favoured gauge) so that i can then get the new saddle. In the meantime I do have another question.... Is it common practise…"

"My Seagull S6 Original Cedar's saddle is loose, I'll be adding a paper shim to tighten it up at the next string change.   My Seagull S6 Coastline Fold Cedar's saddle is tight, I almost had to get the pliers to pull it…"

"I'd position the saddle in the middle of the bridge slot and ignore the old grooves if you see it as a temporary measure. A loose saddle that slides around or worse yet, one that tilts away from a 90 degree angle will cause intonation…"

"Thanks for the info and opinions.   TBH, what I was thinking was to try a few different string makes an gauges over the coming months, then - once I've settled on the strings I like - buying a bone saddle and either trying to fit it…"
