"Yeah, I agree with Greg. You could lubricate the nut slots before stringing it. It shouldn't affect the guitar to up or down a gauge from what it comes strung with."

Simon and Patrick string question

I've been thinking about changing the string gauge on my S&P Woodland Parlor Pro to John Pearse Bluegrass. What I'm wondering is am I asking for trouble putting on these strings on this guitar? I don't want to mess up the bridge or neck or have any other issues that may pop up by going with a slightly bigger string. BTW That's the guitar in my Profile Pic.Any help would be grateful.See More

"I saw a Seagull at the shop the other day and it had the strap button on the upper bout (LP Style). The sales guy told me that's where Godin is putting them. I hoping that it's only on certain guitars because if it's on all that would…"

"I've discovered this as well while trying to install one on my S&P Parlor. When doing the measurements according to the S&P site the button will be sitting closer to the fretboard. "
