    Well, I pulled the trigger today on a 12 string. But first, a little background.

    My name is Wes, and I suffer from chronic GAS. Last year in an attempt to get my urges under control, I made a list of instruments I would like to acquire, and decided I wouldn't get anything not on the list.

    Fast forward to today. I saw a Seagull 12 string pop up on Facebook. The price was attractive and I had an extra tele sitting around begging to be traded.

    I met the guy, played the Seagull, and decided it was worth it. The Seagull came with a case, and I only lost a tele that I never bonded with.

    All in all, I'm pleased and looking forward to spending some quality time in the days ahead. I'll try to post pics tomorrow.

    A LEFTY friend of mine has 3 Seagull's, including a 12 String- I can't play it ( lefty!!) but it sounds great, my buddy loves it. He has had these guitars 15+ years
    His main 6 strings are other makers, but his only 12 is the Seagull ( w/pickup)

    Nice wooden guitars made in North America!

    Now you have to start listening to Leo Kottke for inspiration.

    Very nice! My 12 string is a Seagull too. I subtly tweaked the action to my liking, and have gone through a few sets of strings (Elixir Light PB Nanoweb is my current favorite). Congratulations!

    Thanks. It came with a new set of strings, so I've got to do that sometime. Elixirs are intriguing though.

    It's really nice only having to change strings every few months on a 12.
