"Dave needs to set up shop and sell backpackers with custom setup.  Maybe I might even get one.  But the only use would be for travel and the backpacker is not that comfortable to play."

"Dave, That Rogue has bad and sharp frets.  It is not a good guitar for a beginner but it is a good guitar to build up finger power.  It is not buttery smooth to play."

"I have finger picked on electric and tried to play lead on acoustic. Basically, it is the same except it is easier to reach the upper frets on electric (and easier to play)."

Ron Khoo replied to Greg Ballantyne's discussion Mom - How about a Coastline Grand? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I have a Entourage Rustic Dread and a Coastline Folk.  The Folk has better finish while the Rustic has a stained top, probably because the wood would not look good without the dark stain to hide imperfections.  The tones are different but…"

" Good luck on the guitar Dave. I did see it and I am probably the nearest Seagull Forum member who could try to get it but I would not do it to you.  Anyway, I have been going back to electric recently and got world cup crazy."

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.
