OK, so a bit of a rant here… I bought this guitar in 2009 because it had a mini jumbo shape just like by Gibson ES-175. I was traveling overseas and was drawn to bring an acoustic guitar with a similar shape to my main axe. I paid $800 for that guitar and the value of Godin or Seagull is just in the toilet. Even though, these guitars are manufactured by hand in Canada! Anyway, this is a solid steel string acoustic. The electronics have been disabled and the 9 volt battery cavity cap is missing. The electronics most likely work but I removed the pickup that was placed under the bridge so that I could lower the bridge. Still a very serviceable guitar that I’ve spent many hours playing.
