I've been trying to baby my Seagull along for quite a while now until I can get a really good acoustic but it isn't going to make it. I just had it looked at and the prognosis is poor. The neck is twisting and needs reset but even worse, the top is dead. The guy said I played it to death. I shouldn't have ever bought a guitar with a cedar top. I'm far to heavy handed. So, I guess I'll be needing another moderately priced guitar to beat on for the time being. I'm thinking maybe another Seagull but I'm open to suggestions.
