OFFERING IN EXCELLENT CONDITION... A PIECE OF SEAGULL HISTORY
A RARE TO FIND MINSTREL 6HG WILD CHERRY 6 STRING ACOUSTIC GUITAR. SERIAL # 3996
HAND BUILT by ROBERT GODIN HIMSELF IN 1990 . THAT COMES DIRECTLY FROM SEAGULL CUSTOMER INFORMATION.

Offering this gorgeous, rarely found acoustic guitar, handcrafted in Quebec, Canada in 1990 by Robert Godin himself. Godin was a partner with Norman Boucher from 1970 to 1978. In 1978 Godin broke away and started his own guitar company LaSiDo and began building Minstrel guitars like this one. In 1982 Godin acquired Norman Guitars, discontinued the Minstrel in 1992, and launched the very similar Seagull line. LaSiDo now generates $50 million a year in sales and can boast famous clients like Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins and Metallica's Kirk Hammett.

I have looked for these guitars to see how many are up for grabs, and I usually come up empty handed. Just not many out there to be purchased.

It has a laminated wild cherry top, back, and sides. A maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard and bridge. It is in remarkable condition especially when you figure it is 28 years of age. It is very playable, with a nice easy action, and has a great tone that is well balanced. It's not just a conversation piece, but a player as well.

EZ terms- Cash only. Email only for info. No trades. No shipping. Can meet in South Tyler, or Whitehouse.
