    Seagull S6 CedarPublished on 11/24/13 at 07:30
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Made by hand in quebec. It has a solid cedar top, bottom and sides wild cherry, silver maple neck and rosewood in touch.

    UTILIZATION

    Channel pleasant to play but not easy access to acute and caise a little big.

    SOUNDS

    Super! Exeptionelle a tone for a guitar at this price! sounds better than some guitars to 700 euros! His magnificent clarity in arpeggios. It will delight all ls guitarists seeking a quality guitar at a price affordable. Folk, pop, rock ... It is just great.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost three years and is still as magical One default. Varnish fine that era Retro easily but with this and the sound at this price, we apologize.
    Very good value for money.

    I puchased this guitar from a local music shop after traveling far and wide for a good entry-level guitar. I paid $300 for the guitar & some entry stuff like a strap and a set of new strings.

    Beautiful deep tones and a quiet, understated appearance. I love the no-gloss finish on the guitar- It gives it a subtle-yet-powerful type of feel. The action is easy and comfortable- a perfect guitar for unplugged worship or fireside picking. I played some 20 guitars at 6 different shops from $150-$600 and this one blew me away, even without the low price tag.

    I also played the spruce version of this guitar, but I like the deep tone of the cedar better.

    For that price?

    Nothing.

    Because there isn't any glossy protective laquer/finish on the top of this guitar, it picks up nicks and scratches easily. If you really care that much about the actual outer appearance of the guitar, that could be a downside- but it hasn't affected the sound at all. It has gone everywhere I have in the last 7 months and taken its share of abuse... no change at all in the sound or any other construction element of the guitar itself.

    Beauty! This guitar has to be one of the best out there for entry players, and I would challenge even a $1000 martin player to stand his guitar up to this one in terms of sound and durability. It's not flashy, but it really gets the job done.

    I own a takamine 341 springsteen type acoustic which i like,and my daughter showed interest in learning to play guitar.I went to a local music store in ft walton beach fla to buy some new martin strings,and i decided to play around some with a few guitars on the wall.Well i picked up a seagull S6+CEDAR and strummed a D cord then a G cord and immediately called over the guitar sales guy and told him i want this guitar!.I will honestly tell you that i could not believe the richness of the sound that came from that guitar.The neck felt different to me at first compared to my takanine,but in 5 mins that feeling was gone,and i knew right then my daughter was getting this guitar for......

Excellent guitar for the money!

    I like the price,the feel,the action,and oh yes,that beautiful cedar smell that really gives the living room that woodsy smell.

    No dislikes as of now! Can,t wait till christmas.

    Excellent quality,tight fitting joints,very thin laquer finnish,this guitar is very light compared to my takimine EF-341, but it feels very strong,and durable.

    I wish my first acoustic guitar which i purchased overseas in okinawa japan,while stationed there in the airforce,had the same sound and overall playability as this seagull model has.The guitar i purchased over there is a yamaha 210 acoustic,which i still own and play even after 26 years of military travel.and moves,but having said that,its sound is tinny,and the only way to get away from the tinny sound is to play it lightly using fingers and thumb only! No picks with the yamaha,it really causes it to sound quite tinny.The seagull sounds great with or with out a pick,loud or soft.

    This was brought for £255 (english sterling) from a discount mail order company called Area 51. (the rrp is £329!)

    I bought it as a second guitar to have in a different tuning, my standard guitar being a Taylor 710. I wont exagerate and say the seagull sounds as good, but it still holds its own and the sound is susprising. It certainly sounds better than my old Taylor 214! The finish is amazing and it makes a brilliant sound for almost every style. The best feature is the wide fret board (after you get used to it!) and the individual sounding of each string on every strum.

    Nothing! Obviously its not the best ever guitar but certainly one of the best for under £1000, and is 100% worth......

    The quality is, overall, solid and sturdy. The finish is easily scratched but its worth it for the sound it gives. Ive found that all seagull gutars are pretty much universal in build quality, and there generally good for the price.

    This is completly out of the league of pretty much every guitar I've played that costs £300 or less. The value for money is truly amazing, and it could easily be sold for three times the price and still be reasonable value.

    I'm from Austin, Tx and bought my Seagull from Guitar Resurrection for $349. Pricey for the model, I know, but this place is pricey. I looked at others, but being a banger, I wanted something with full tonal sound.

    This guitar has such a full sound. I use bigger strings (Robert Pearce 12's) and the S(6) pushes out delicious lows, meaty mids and silky highs. They've apparently taken great pains towards quality. Well, hell, they're handmade. I learned out to 'really' play on this thing, and I've owned it for 8 years. I will not outgrow it. The longer I play it, the better it sounds. And hears a hint: warm it up before you play it. The sun works best.

The longer I play it, the better it sounds. And hears a hint: warm it up before you play it. The sun works best.

    The soundboard has a matte finish, which makes it gorgeous, but it's a bit soft. I have plenty of 'character dings' in it and I'm working towards a 'Willy hole' (see Willy Nelson's nylon string). I've been able to stave it off with some clear flaminco soundboard protectors.

    The construction is terrific, though I did have to have the bridge reattached once. I've never had to have the intonation adjusted, though I tried once. The luthier I brought it to told me that it was off by less than 5%. There you go.

    Buy this guitar. No matter what kind of acoustic guitar music you play, you'll be pleased. Lead, rock, country, blues, I do it all. Never let me down. I've had plenty of players tell me that the S(6) rivaled even mid-range Martins.

    I got this off a music store owner, who happens to have the same left-handed curse that I do. It was used, but he took decent care of it and the cedar top has aged well, producing a nice warm, mellow sound. It's listed at $350 if new, and I'm not made of money, but it's a bargain compared to some other guitars, especially considering how great it plays.

    The fingerboard is fast, even though he set the action high and I haven't bothered to lower it, the guitar is extremely playable, chording and noting are both a breeze, It has a self-correcting bridge that treats each string individually, much like an electric, and the nut is nice, solid and sturdy rather than a cheap plastic nut that......

It has a beautiful finish, very light on the laquer, no gloss, very naturalistic. It's a gorgeous guitar.

    Nothing.

    It's seamless, quite well crafted. My only issue with the one I have is a slight separation of the neck at the body, but it does nothing to hamper playability and I'm sure it's because the guitar was previously owned. It still plays well despite, and the tone is magnificent, in the right hands this guitar can sing.

    Great guitar, (relatively) cheap ... It's 350 for a lefty, 300 for a righty (which is complete discrimination), looks great, plays well, great tone, decent sustain. More worth your while than not if you're looking for a cheap accoustic.

    I purchsed this guitar at Long and McQuade in the winter of '96. It cost about $400 (CAN)

    I think that for the price this is a great guitar. I have played freind's guitars which cost a lot more and not liked them nearly as much. It has a nice rich tone. I like the look of the guitar. There is nothing fancy but it looks very nice.

    There is a small problem with the g string. it won't tune properly but it is very close and I'm sure I could get it fixed if i felt it was bad enough.

    The guitar is very high quality. It followed me through college and has lived with many people. It has been bashed into doorknobs, dropped, and generally banged around by roommates and myself. After all this it......

    The guitar is very high quality. It followed me through college and has lived with many people. It has been bashed into doorknobs, dropped, and generally banged around by roommates and myself. After all this it looks pretty beat up but it still sounds as good (maybe better) than when I bought it. It now has a small crack just above and behind the brige on the top. I don't know if this is due to dry Canadian winter weather or missuse but it hasn't effected the sound. The tuners are still in great shape 6 years later.

    I love my guitar. With the exception of the small tuning problem I have never had any problems with it. I would buy a higher end Seagull next time I'm looking for an acoustic. My freinds all say it sounds great and several have purchased one for themselves.

    This guitar was purchased at H.E.L. Music in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.The price was $399 CDN.

    The way this guitar plays is the most impressive thing.
    The action is very low, there are no dead spots and the guitar stays in tune, even with hard playing.
    The finish is plain but very esthetically pleasing and the entire guitar is very well finished.
    There are a few blemishes which actually enhnace the look.
    The headstock is very nice.

    The neck is quite wide but once you are used to it it is excellent.

    The finger board is rose wood abd well done. The frets are very smooth.

    The guitar is very loud and since the finish is light the resonance is much better than more expensive products.

    For the price and a new manufacturer you may think that this is just a beginners guitar, but believe me, once you play it, the SeaGull will be your ONLY acoustic.
    Best new product in a long time.
    Enjoy.

    First, i have to said that i buyed it in 1996, in canada where i live. The store is ARCHAMBAULT and I payed 400 canadian dollars: $267 us. It was a guitar for my sister but she played 1 week. So i forced myself to play and started my bass career.

    Hum, its a great cedar made guitar: solid good looking. Make a clear sound. A just perfect sized pickguard. Easy to use.

    The strings that comes with this guitar is crap, but i changed for d'addario strings and woks perfectly. The face of the guitar is easy to scratch: just have to toutch it and it makes marks. But really its just little things.

    Real great quality : its since i have it that i play and let me tell you im not gentle with it.......

    I found it a bit investissement for a first guitar but if you have the cash, you will not be bored.

    Purchased new from Daddy's Junky Music. I was upgrading from a plywood guitar and wanted a solid wood top guitar. Found this baby for $299 US.

    There's nothing to not like! It's plain yet classy looking with the mahogony stained sides and back and cream colored binding.

    The sound is awesome. Especially at this price! I've noticed an improvement in the sound just in the 6 months I've had it.

    Nothing!

    The wider neck takes a little getting used to but, for me, wasn't a problem.

    It's handmade so, the attention to detail is outstanding.

    A word of caution. The cedar top is soft, especially with the satin finish. Every bump shows!

    You won't find a better quality guitar at this price.

    If you're considering buying one, be sure to play it a few times beforehand to be sure the wider neck works for you.
