"Jim, The violin bass belonged to Gordon who's holding my sister's tambourine. We worked together many times over the past 40 years but no more since his untimely death a few years ago. BTW the bass sound off that thing was dreadful. :) -Ray"

Unfortunately, I don't think there are any Seagull dealerships anywhere in the UK ... this is the information on the Seagull website under dealers:

United Kingdom

Godin Direct UK 440 Distribution Tel: 01132 589599 Email:   info@440distribution.com Web: www.440distribution.com

Through this source, apparently you can get a Norman, which is basically a Seagull with a more traditional headstock.

Ray ... the gift wrapped guitar is the Seagull I gave to my son last Christmas.  He is a newbie guitarist at the age of 25 and he's picking things up pretty fast considering.  I love acoustic guitars and if I wasn't so inundated with family expenses and obligations, I'd have 20-30 of them I'm sure. Luckily for my family, I am able to resist it becoming a uncontrolable addiction, LOL.

Here's me back in the day ... not quite as high profile as you, but we had a lot of fun!
