RobertW , nice! Overall, your guitar is more worn and beat up than my brother's, but his wear below and to the front of his pick guard is way more severe. But overall, at a quick glance, his might actually look in better shape. lol.
But, as we all know, looks have zero to do with how good it sounds.
I played it a bit yesterday..it been more than year for sure.. didn't tune it..was fine.. nice & mellow
Ya, I wouldn't mind having a typical cedar topped S6 again. One of these days, if I find one used or even new on sale, I might pick one up again. Maybe. Depends on how much room I can "refind" after my spring cleaning project is done. The S6's truly are Godin's best acoustics all around imho. Very nice and mellow sound they produce.
