Not now, but I have.  Same company (Godin) as (duh) Godin, Norman, Seagull, Art & Lutherie, and a couple others.  I have also had a couple Seagulls over the years.  Well made good sounding guitars.

I have a Simon and Patrick SP6 with solid cedar top and wild cherry back and sides. I love it. It's stored 2000km away though. I play it when I visit family on the east coast.

Most Godin family guitars are great value.  Any model with a solid spruce or cedar top will be a nice sounding guitar.  The cheapest models have laminated tops and don't stand up to any of the other models.

I have a Simon & Patrick and can't say a bad thing about it.  I bought it new in '95.  It's the equivalent of the Showcase...  just called it by a different name back then.  It's a dreadnought with a spruce top and quilted maple back and sides.  It has a really nice sound.  Like the Larrivee's, it's a really nice guitar for a fairly affordable price.

"Simon" and "Patrick" are the names of Robert Godin's sons
From what I have been told, and understand, the "higher end" acoustic guitars come from their "Atelier" shop (custom shop-what ever).

The showcase series is very good, solid EIR, tempered Spruce tops and Adi bracing.

I have an old S & P Dreadnaught model, that is the closest thing to a Martin D-28 imaginable.
EIR back & sides, Spruce top, mahogany neck, ebony bridge and fret board, Grover tunes, heck it even has scalloped braces.
 They even made the headstock name in the same font as Mrtin.

It's a real cannon, and a direct copy of the classic.
D-28.
 Evidently they didn't make many before being ordered to stop production.
 I believe I paid $235 on eBay for it.

"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.
