I really am not sure if my 2004 has the route through the top like the set necks do , all I know is it has the block and have not been able to find any info that shows how mine is built. It's certainly possible even though the block exists it's just there for support and is not routed out to accept the neck as it is in the set neck models. I can see the block yet without removing the neck there's no way to know and I'm not about to remove the neck to find out. So far how ever it's fastened it has not come loose in 14 years and at least can be removed and reset if needed. I can't find a photo or any detailed info on a 2004 seagull of any size. I'm just adding humidity to see what changes this makes as far as the top and if that does not do it them I'll sand the saddle bottom to lower the action a bit at a time and see what that gives me. The last 2 days it's been close to 10% RH . I don't have an in case hygrometer yet the one I have in the small closet I keep my guitars I have a stew mac analog unit and it reads 25% RH @72 degrees F. I tried adding humidity before with no change in the action at the 12th fret. a tech near me I called Neely guitars told me my big mistake was to add humidity he said we have the perfect weather here. I never had any sort of dampit until 3 years after I got this guitar then I got a few and it was fine until 2012. I imagine it's just years of string tension that made the change I see now. I've searched all over the internet for years and find all sorts of different info. Most say you should keep it humidified and in the case which I have been doing. I thought perhaps if I placed a baggie and sponge near the heel that might help a bit , haven't tried that yet.
