All I really want is less...frets, that is. Why, oh why, hasn't Seagull given us a 12-fret model? In short scale, please, to mollify those of us who came to the brand for that in the first place. Approximately every avid seabird-watcher would jump on that one. Make mine an Artist Mosaic, with QII.
Twelve-fret seems like a growing niche that Seagull could make without much competition. There's a thousand-dollar gap between the $400 Recording Kings and the low-end Taylor and Martin options around $1500. Does it really cost that much to yank a pair of frets off a guitar?
I asked Michel at Godin that question 5 months ago. They have no plans to make a 12 fret Seagull. He also said Art & Lutherie Roadhouse and Simon and Patrick parlor models have a 12 fret neck...but a 1.72" nut width.

Hmm. Maybe an Artist style guitar in cedar/rosewood, since that's a more common configuration, but Seagull doesn't offer it. And they'd have to bring back an ebony board and saddle. I'd probably prefer a Folk size with shorter scale.
