Seuss Don't invest dollars in guitars; invest hours in practice and see which makes you the better player.The older one does not have a sticker or number on the back of the headstock. Barring any further replies, I'll email Godin when they get back off vacation in a week or so. Scan right down to the bottom of the page for the latest edition.
The second is an Artist Studio model, stunningly gorgeous with s/n 030224000004. With the 12-digit numbers, there is no way to tell when the guitar was made. __________________ Seagull Performer CW Flame Maple Q1T Walden G1070 Cort L450-O Cort L500-O Giannini Craviola 12-string Seagull Coastline S12 12-string Walden N610CE Cordoba C5 Lucida LG-540 Godin 5th Avenue CW Kingpin II Voyage-Air VAOM-02 Guitar Works GWTR-1 Travel Guitar - wall hanger __________________ "You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room." --Dr.As an added feature I have retyped a table supplied by Ian Talmage, based on the original info, I hope it might be easier to read and maybe have extra info available.When I am satisfied all my gremlins are out of it and I have added as much as I can, I might delete the first one, but at the moment I leave both, as the first one came direct from the horses mouth, so to speak, British Seagull.Postby skcm2006 » Tue Feb 24, 2009 am For Segaull prior to 2008 Seagull switched to a 12 digit serial number.The first six are the model number followed by the year and then the sequential one crafted. I know it's a bummer to find out that it's not from the highly collectible month of May, but it probably still plays well.
