New owner of a 2010 LL6 purchased w/case for CDN$100.00. Just changed strings that were probably on this guitar when new - using Elixir Nano Lights .012. Very different sound from my FG-335ii, which I sold last month due to the beginnings of neck separation. Not as loud and bright as my Seagull, but it's a different guitar and I love it. The neck feels sturdy and strong. In fact, the whole guitar is rugged and strong. Can't believe I got lucky enough to pay $50.00 less than I sold my 335ii, and $20.00 less than I sold an old Suzuki classical a few months ago! One can find a great bargain sometimes , if patient!
