"Nice guitar, looks in excellent condition. I can almost hear the, blues been finger picked, wafting through the air. If you have not tried, I would recomend tuning down to open D, probably the nicest, sweetest acoustic guitar tuning in the…"

"Just my 2 cents, but I wouldn't re-glue it. Clean off all the glue residue and leave that nut to free-float. When you re-string just tighten up everything loosely and use your "centre digit" on each hand to "feel" that the…"

"I totally agree with and will second Derick's suggestion here.  With this method, you are guaranteed to lower the nut overall evenly.  By doing each slot separately, you cannot guarantee the same result, at least not as easily by…"

"Hi Paul Glad you have and like the new folk guitar. Just my penny worth, on guitars that I have had where the nut is a little high, I have taken the nut off and sanded a little of the under side, I find it easier than filing the individual slots,…"

"Cool! ... I've never seen this particular model in spruce before.  Mine has a cedar top.  I had a complete professional set-up on mine and it became almost a different guitar as a result (in a good way) ... money well spent. If you…"

"I have polished the frets, oiled the fretboard, and put some Elixir Light Nanos on the guitar.  It didn't require any cleanup, even though it had been stored in a closet for several years.  It appears to have an Adirondack spruce top,…"

"I have arrived home, after an 8-hour drive. I finally have a chance to check out the Folk.  It has a spruce top, with solid rosewood back and sides.  Gold-plated hardware, with pearl knobs.  The guitar is very lightweight.  It…"

RGD (recent guitar day :-) )

I picked up an Ovation 6756LX Legend a few months ago.  It looks like it will need a neck reset.  Fortunately, this model has a bolt-on neck, and a reset seems to require just loosening the neck bolts, then sanding down the heel where it meets the body.  I've been putting this off, as I always seem to put a lot of research into such things before I get my hands dirty (so-to-speak).  The bridge saddle will need to be replaced also, as the previous owner has cut grooves into it in order to bring…See More

"My first Seagull Folk (an early model) had a very wide nut on it - almost to the point of being uncomfortable to play on (finger spacing being too spread out).  It sounds like the nut width on the S&P (1.72 inches) is the same as on my…"

"I have the S&P Woodland Pro Folk Mahogany and love it to death.  But, it is all solid wood mahogany so it's tones are just magical. I think you might find any of Godin's folk size guitars with the spruce tops a bit bright.  I…"

Thanks for your comment, Paul. Yes, it happens the same to me when I watch Tommy Emmanuel (and many others...)

Cheers,

Antonio
