    I'm thinking about selling off my Seagull Folk and getting one of these used somewhere. Has anyone here had one? This is the non-synth model.

    Yeah, I saw that in the catalog! Wild, eh?

    I had a chance to "play" (I suck at guitar, but want to take lessons) one of these in a store the other day. I've always admired them from afar, but they're really playable and have great tone, even unplugged! I'm finding that the tone I want for my fingerstyle guitar playing is going to have to come from a nylon stringed instrument - the steel string just ain't cutting it.

    it was nuts he was doing like trumpet and indian tones and everything on it, and even the clean tone is just SO sweet.

    Anyways, I think Godin are pretty solid overall, I doubt you'll go wrong with it.

    Looks pretty swank. Fretless, you say?

    No, not for me - my GSQ (Guitar Suckage Quotient) is way too high for a fretless guitar. I'm considering a normal fretted one!
