I really like Seagulls. Nice sound, good action, love the finishes.

As for playing, do what I did: learn the chords for Yellow Submarine. Easy to play, and you'll have 90% of the chords you'll ever need!
 
And then learn at least 3 different positions to play each one. {#Yes}

{#Lol}  Someone quoted Billy Gibbons (guitarist for ZZ Top) as saying:  I can't believe we've been doing this for forty years - and still playing the same three chords!

Tech question:
How much fret-buzz can be eliminated by a proper set-up?

I checekd out an Ibanez (AG95) today and it had a little bit, between midway and the nut, on the lower strings.
(It also had lower gauge strings than I would put on it)



 
That's beautiful!

 Point it out to the seller and have them look into it. If it's new, it probably just needs to have the truss rod adjusted.   Stuff


   I googled and there's a shitload of videos on it, I didn't check any of them out though.

 If it's used it could be anything from the above , to worn frets( you have to have them leveled by a luthier type who will file them, don't try it at home) to a bad nut or bridge or some other stuff that escapes me right now.

Jeez, calm down, man. I've been grappling with the capo tuning thing for years and haven't found a solution yet, although I have found a capo that seems to not be as bad as most. I forget the name but most guitar shops carry them - it's the brass ones that clip on sort of backwards on the neck. I can't see close-up for shit but it looks like "SHUBB" etched on one side of it.

I hate tuning - especially my 12-string. By the time I get the low strings tuned the high strings our out again! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr......


Ha! I'm just giving you the gears. I just have to admire real guitarists from afar — hence the selling MB's soul venture I launched recently...
