Never played one. Don't know anything about them. Never had an interest.

 

But I want one now. 23:00 and 28:45.

I also wanted one of those nylon jobs. They make one with a thinner neck for electric players called an "SA Slim".

 

Almost down the road from where I am - I think they make the parts here and have many of their guitars assembled in New Hampshire or somewhere in the USA just south of Montreal.

 

A joint effort one might say but with no smoke...just wondering if my Seagull Artist Studio would sound like that if I change to nylon strings.

Been round the block but am not over the hill...

http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ACSSASlimBKP/ <--- I would save the money Barth and put it toward this baby...the next model up is about $500 more, but this $1,000 one would get some great sound. I would leave that Seagull stock as changing it over to a nylon would involve changing the bridge, nut and saddle...nylons use special electronics and the neck is just a tad wider than the steel string (not nearly as wide as the classical neck widths). Nylon treble strings are much thicker and need a little more fret board room than steel strings...the tuning machines would probably present new conversion problems as well...
Take care, Larryz

Stay away from Norman guitars by the way. Made by the same group. Had a 12 and it completely warped - near the sound-hole plus the neck plus the bridge.

 

Their big deal was that Mick Jagger used one to record and they supposedly don't need any EQ. They sound not bad but suck big-time. Everyone I meet who has or had one complains about it.

 

I straight traded it for the Les Paul in my pic at the left - which was also close to being trash at the time...but I put approx $1,250 into it & had it restored. Guess I came out ahead on that deal.

I have 3 Godin solid bodies.....and counting......I do feel their lower end offerings suffer fret issues that their high end ones don't. The Artisan models were stunning! My Artisan TC is one of my very favorite axes.

This is one that was kind of one my radar. It depends on how this next week shakes out. Our guitarist got let go. We are trying to get a replacement. I can pick up more guitar duties especially if I can trigger my Keys rig from a guitar. I am somewhat competant on guitar. I like playing guitar. I twin a lot of leads with our guitarist playing the 3rd over and I do some lead work. But I would rather not become the guitarist. I'm just a so so mediocre guitar player but I am a OK piano player. Things are looking up we got some fairly heavy hitters interested in auditioning. I have my fingers crossed.

 

Our challenge is find someone who can or wants to cover a really broad range a genre and someone who can handle the schedule. Had a friend I wanted to bring into the band. He wanted to do it but his wife cried when it struck her how many nights he would be gone and that stopped that. LOL! You have to keep the home front happy.

LGhmb cognac burst

LGsp90 22 fret (2)

LGsp90 22 fret (3)

LGsp90 bound cherry flame top ( not veneer)

Session black with maple fretboard

 

i have seen and played many real early models and those are plain awesome.

Artisan ST with cognac flame top and three SD lil 59's

LG3

and a special build from worker at Godin which a friend acquired, an early ST with the long upper horn and nub on the lower, flame top in blue with PRS style faux binding, schaller made Floyd and one sweet neck with rosewood board, loaded with a neck rail and a dual rail HB that was splitable.

 

they are a unique company that rewards their employees for improving the process and quality.

the Kingpins are so cool , my buddy has the single p90 model and it rocks with some real wire on there.

'Zan, I'd be very interested to know your opinion of the Session. It seemed like a big step up from a MIM Strat, within a reasonable price range.

 

in my opinion the session smokes MIM Strats. the necks are awesome and it can cover a lot of styles even metal. i even prefer their Yamaha pacifica inspired half pickguard. one solid gig ready guitar.

Thanks, 'Zan. That was my impression, from having them in the shop where I worked, but I never got to take one out and give it a good road test. At the time, the difference in price was about $100, in our shop, but the MIM Fenders flew out the door, because people were buying the name, not the guitar.

i have never been a big fan of MIM Strats. not bad but something doesn't click.

the Session has fit and finish aced as well as one sexy neck. all the hardware is top notch. the bridge bucker taps so you get the standard 3 single coils if you wish. the single coils are not hot and IMHO sound great for bar magnet style single coils.

one solid stay in tune rockin geetar. the trem is like an AM STD Strat. the newer models have an upgraded trem with a bigger block and an arm that stays where you want it.
