New Godin Seagull and La Patrie Guitars!

The Godin company has just come out with some beautiful new guitars.

The Seagull Maritime

The Seagull Maritime is a very attractive guitar, with great sound and nice projection. This guitar has the new Polished Lacquer finish, giving it a satiny sheen similar to the traditional French Polish seen in the 19th century.

The Seagull Coastline Cedar Grand

The Coastline is a parlor size guitar with a very focused sound and nice projection. Like the Maritime, the Coastline also features the Polish Lacquer finish. The small size makes it very comfortable to play.

The La Patrie Etude

All we can say is: Just try and find a better classical guitar for $300. You can't do it. This is a great sounding guitar. It has a hand rubbed finish, giving it a beautiful, classic look.

The La Patrie Hybrid

The Hybrid is a classical guitar for steel string players. Its sunburst finish, radiused fingerboard and cutaway makes it very attractive, and gives it a non-traditional look. If you are a steel string player, but would like to try a classical, this would be a great guitar for you.

The LaPatrie Hybrid sounds like a fantastic all-around functional guitar, at a mid-range price.
After having this "hybrid" for a few years, how do you feel about it?

For the price range I really like it, but there are European made guitars that I like better. For example, Kremona makes a guitar with a radiused fingerboard and cutaway with a pickup that I think sounds better than the LaPatrie, and then there are Spanish made guitars with a better sound. But for the price, the concept of the LaPatrie is really nice. I just prefer the European made classical, and Godin really excels at the steel string guitars and electrics.
