GUEST,John G Canadian-made Guitars - opinions please? (119* d) RE: Canadian-made Guitars - opinions please? 10 Jan 07


Hi there

Just been cruising through the net as I'm looking to get another guitar and found this thread on Canadian Guitars.

I first discovered Seagulls about 8 years ago when I was in my local shop just trying out various models to replace my old Yammy 12 string. tried a Seagull S6 (had never heard of a Seagull before)and just loved that clear crisp sound. bought it there and then and I still love it. Added another Seagull the Artist Studio about a year ago.

The Artist Studio is an absolute gem for the money, craftmanship is excellent, Spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides give a great clear sound especially on the attack, Action is great and haven't had to have the truss adjusted at all. I play mainly blugrass/flatpick style but sounds just as good for fingerpick or strum.

I absolutely love it !! best guitar I've ever had.

If other Canadian makes are anything like the Seagulls you can't go wrong.

Currently looking to treat myself to a new addition and am looking at either a Gibson rosewood J45 or a Martin D28 0r D45. If anybody out there has any views on these It would be good to hear them. My preference at the momet is for the Gibson.
