Solid spruce top??

What's the finish?

If it's the so called 'satin finish' then even if it is kinda bright, its tone will mellow the more it's played... My oldest Seagull once bright and jangly is so old and well played it's mellowed to sound like a black velvet bag of gravel and smoke...

One day I'm gonna get the poor old girl re-fretted and put a decent pick up into her, and get her back into service... she's too good to live in the closet...

As far as S&P go... well, I can only talk about the 5 or 8 that I have played in various music stores... While I did like them well enough, I didn't like them enough to not buy Seagull when push came to shove...

The price seems to be pretty good...

Do you LIKE playing the guitar?
