Ron Khoo commented on Jud Hair's group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Why would anyone want a painted guitar over a nice wood finish?  Only time I want painted guitar is if were cheep cheep, plastic (like my cheep cheep uke), or if the "wood" was plywood or fake wood."

"The nice gig bags I have for my s6 entourage an coastline folk are taupe in color. The padding is good with those bags. The sparrow bags (cheep cheep) are black and almost padless."

"Yes Jud, The one you have is like the two gull bags that I have (good good).  I ordered a bag from Amazon last year that was inexpensive (maybe under $30) and it was so bad I returned it. That bag did have the embroidered Seagull logo but…"

"My local GC has less stock than usual and not many good guitars.  They have 1 Seagull S6, a few lower range Martins and maybe a D28 or 2.  Ditto for Taylor.  When they first opened, they had a better selection.   I did think of…"

"The mmv 000 fretboard is ebony so I guess there was shrinkage. If it was richete, there will be no such problem.  Good ebony is always preferred though."

"I looked at a GC Martin 000MMV.  Sound is okay, but the bass was not articulate.  I guess it may be the A bracing pattern. And the frets were sharp like a cheapie and not a Martin.  USA Martins generally have nice fret finish."

"No guitar rack. But I have a few stands. Do those count? My guitars sleep peacefully in their bags or cases, except for the Rogue. Rogue, the baddest (literal meaning) guitar in my collection gets the most play time."

Ron Khoo replied to FloridaGull's discussion I have a case of GAS...I blame Cort Guitars... in the group Small Body Guitars
"Your gas is giving gas for an OM 35.  Cort is nice but a Martin OM35 is ....   But I am not going to afford one unless I get rid of my D35.  Anyway, the OM 35 is not currently under production."

Heyya Ron...check out the Martin guitars website for events,etc. We had one around here a couple weeks ago, but I couldn't make it. I use the MSP7600 extra lights on all my 12's now.

GREAT choices on your martins! Does your D16 have the aged toner top? Wish mine did! I have a D12-16RGTC that is #166 of 200 that has satin rosewood back and sides with a couple of other tweaks that was commissioned by Guitar Center in 2001. I'm the 2nd owner.

  Don'tcha just Love your D35? I really enjoy the 12 fret neck..heck, I even Love the way it smells!

Heyya Ron...what years are your Martins?

If you like the looks of the dark finish on the Entourage Rustic and you actually wanted the slim 1.72 inch nut, then you made the right choice.  The Entourage Rustic and the S-6 slim are pretty much the same guitar other than the finish.  I was drawn to the S-6 mainly because I really wanted the wider nut.

Hey Ron!  Thanks for joining the Seagull group.  Glad to have you with us!
