Used (2000) Seagull S6-CW (cedar top, electronics, cutaway).
It has some pick wear on the top, some nicks here and there, but the neck and frets seem fine. Oh yeah, it sounds and plays good as well.

Sold my Orange AD30R (kind of sad) and replaced it with a Silvertone 1482. Holy f***, the Silvertone screams. I don't miss the Orange at all anymore.

Can't wait. Feel like I'm "one of the gang" now! hahaha. My only other piece of fully TO endorsed gear is the 12AY7.

Good to hear. It's my first acoustic with a solid top, and if the "sounds better the more it's been played" talk is correct, I got a 10 year jump on buying one new. I put 11's on, I think my fingers are wimped out from ukulele, I don't think I want to go any lighter gauge.

Those are wacky looking. Can someone explain the basic concept? Why so many speakers, and why positioned in such a manner.

I once repaired one of these beauties for my best friend.

Where did he get his?

IN A DUMPSTER.

No joke.
Howling at the neighbors. Hoping they have more mic cables.

They're going on the block shortly. At rock-frickin' bottom so I can move 'em quickly.

It's almost freaky how some room issues aren't really an issue anymore. The imaging is --- "breathtaking" isn't nearly too strong a word.

But the general design is a long-standing favorite among a lot of audiophiles & mastering engineers. Always wanted a set of Duntechs (but they always seemed to 'brash') or Dunlavys (could never put my finger on what I didn't like about the SC-V's) and then a friend (Cass Anawaty from Sunbreak Music) turned me on to what Tyler was doing. Long story short, these things are amazing and they're not even broken in yet.
