    Seagull S6 OriginalPublished on 04/05/14 at 13:19
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Manufacture La Patrie, a small town in Quebec.
    Specific characteristics are readily available ... What I can add is that in ten years, the guitar is aging very well despite frequent use.

    UTILIZATION

    Very enjoyable to play guitar. The grip is natural.

    SOUNDS

    As I wrote previously, the sound improves with age (unless it is my game that gets better ;-)). Not without laughter, the sound is balanced, powerful enough. The shades are easy whether picking or plectrum, rhythmic and solo ... All styles, including blues, folk ... pass.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 11 years and this is my favorite acoustic guitar. The violin is simple, but neat. I bought other Seagull guitars and I've never been disappointed. Excellent quality / price ratio. Excellent guitar, I'm not tired ...

    Seagull S6 OriginalPublished on 01/16/09 at 15:00
    Maple top with light mahogany sides, inlay at the opening, steel strings.

    I grew up in a family that was surrounded by music of all types and styles. I have been playing guitar for over 40 years. I started in the 4th grade as a way to help in the development of my eye-hand coordination. In the 6th grade, I had my first garage band playing a Decca solid body electric. By high school, I was writing original songs and performing country rock and folk cover music for my own enjoyment and at the assorted coffee houses. I was playing a six string nylon Greco classical guitar. I added an Appalachian dulcimer with pressure pegs and a Fender 5 string banjo to my self taught list of instruments. I…

    I grew up in a family that was surrounded by music of all types and styles. I have been playing guitar for over 40 years. I started in the 4th grade as a way to help in the development of my eye-hand coordination. In the 6th grade, I had my first garage band playing a Decca solid body electric. By high school, I was writing original songs and performing country rock and folk cover music for my own enjoyment and at the assorted coffee houses. I was playing a six string nylon Greco classical guitar. I added an Appalachian dulcimer with pressure pegs and a Fender 5 string banjo to my self taught list of instruments. In college, I sometimes played instruments on stage as a part of a performing arts group producing original musical comedies. Since then, I pick up the guitar or banjo when I have the notion.

    My daughter had been learning to play on my old nylon string guitar and it was time to get her a steel string acoustic. The occasion was her 16th birthday. When she first showed interest in guitars (about 2 years ago) I had the opportunity to try a number of acoustic guitars of all types and price ranges. I remember playing a Seagull and was impressed by the sound and its reasonable price range. When I was ready to buy my daughter the guitar, I returned to the music store. Unfortunately they had discontinued carrying Seagulls in favor of the more expensive Martins and Gibsons. We searched and found that Guitar Center carried Seagull. We tried a full range of acoustics and found the Seagull S6 has the best sound, easiest to play and at $499 was of incredible value.

    The tone is sweet and clear with qualities that equal or exceed the Gibson Songbird. The neck is perfect for my daughter's smaller hands but is also very easy for me to play. The $499 for a Seagull S6 sounds the same if not better than the $1,599 used Gibson Songbird or new Martin (you know, the ones they keep in the humidity controlled rooms). I appreciate value and quality, more than name or reputation.

    My daughter and I have no negative comments to say about the guitar.

    Solid wood sides, top, bottom & neck. Not veneered, laminated or multi-plied.

    If you are looking for a great guitar with an amazing tone,try a Seagull. You do not have to purchase based upon price or name. Purchase based on sound, playability and tone. Try it out and you will be amazed.

    I've been playing for a year mostly finger picking. I like playing mellow rock and classical

    I had bought a new guitar didn't spend the time to shop around. The neck buzzed got it fix but still hard on the fingers.One day I went to a small guitar shop and told the owner about my problem. He showed me a guitar played it pretty nice. then he handed me a seagull s6. It played like silk, just touched the strings and it sounded so rich and deep in tone. It was great. tried some others that were three times the money.But i had to have the seagull and bought it. It cost me 369.00 a little more then my first, but sounds like it would cost four times that

    The guitar is very light, has great all over tone. tuners are great. Stayed tuned for days with lots of play.Very easy on the fingers can play for hours.

    The only problem I see is the finish is very light you need to handel with care but thats what makes it sound so good and only gets better with age.

    The construction of the guitar is great. Has great tuners. The wood is beatiful from the cedar face cherry sides and nice maple neck

    From playing lots of guitars any time I see a shop. For the money you cannot find a better deal then the seagull s6.

    Seagull S6 OriginalPublished on 09/10/04 at 15:00
    Bought this guitar for my Dad who played a little bit,but never owned a good sounding guitar.Purchased from Eds Music Workshop,Ptbo,On.Canada for 279.00 ca

    At the time it was the best sounding guitar I could find for the money,kind of plain looking but great sounding.

    After 15 years the neck has started to sag into the body.

    Solid cedar top,laminated cherry back and sides,mahogany neck,rose wood finger board and saddle.

    For the money you can't buy much better than this for sound.Ive played a lot of guitars over my 25 years of playing,but the sound and action of this guitar has made me feel like staying with it,some times you just can't put it down.

    I went into a local guitar shop with only the intension to play a few guitars. But, once I played the Seagull S6 i was hooked and bought the thing for $300.

    Great sound, great look, great intination. Sounds far superior to any other $300 guitar I have played.

    Nada

    Simple, but very well built. HANDMADE! unlike other $300 guitars. No flashy extras , just the nessesities.

    Very nice guitar , recommened to all. Great value.

    I purchased the S6 at Lakeshore Music in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Both me and my brother bought guitars for about $350 Canadian each with cases. He, sadly, decided on a Yamaha.

    The cedar top produces an incredibly warm deep tone that I have never found in any other guitar. The finish is very minimal which gives a much more natural sound. My brother's Yamaha is heavily laquered and sounds tinny. The S6 is extremely easy to play and easy to set up. There is a truss rod adjustment just underneath the soundhole. The intonation is also excellent.

    Nothing, but do remember that it can be fragile because of its light finish. Make sure you have a good humidifier for it.

    The design is simplicistic but Seagul has put every effort into making the best quality instrument possible. You have to play one to understand the comfort. The guitar has not had a single problem since I bought it.

    My S6 is such a beautiful instrument I bought another one with a cutaway and the L.R. Baggs electronics. The S6 is cheaper because they did not bother with all of the flashy extras like pearl inlays or other beauty items. The normal S6 has the best sound in an acoustic guitar especially for around $300.

    I am left-handed version of this electro acoustic guitar but the woods are the same: solid cedar table (as the name implies) and background Clisse cherry, accajou handle, touch and rosewood bridge . These guitars are made by hand and the finish is good cost and personally I love the smell DGIG of this guitar! (This n'tait not the main reason for my choice for this instrument). Fans of electro acoustic find an equalizer with three bands (one mdium paramtrique), one of potart prsence and volume thus providing possiblilit occur on scne with his trs correct.

    UTILIZATION

    The grip is enjoyable despite the size of the body (Dreadnought).
    The handle is quite pais but allows even easier to play on guitar agreements complexes.Cette dpourvu pan shot (there are MODEL S6 EC) Access in so acute is restricted This does not prevent reaching agreements to 11ME case.Cette also trs guitar sounds good solo.

    SOUNDS

    Both the finger (picking and arpges) in the rhythm guitar has a rich palette of sound with the added bonus of harmony of the whole beaut.Le is generally quite dull and powerful enough (guitar lovers acoustic brilliant brilliant show trs go your way).
    Personally I find the sound a little harsh electro acoustic either on scne o for registration; In addition I have a problem with the bass as they look compltement flange (position sensor piezo can be?).
    I play acoustic prfre widely and it shows all its richness.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It is now six years since I played on this guitar and I'm really satisfait.En certainly rang and the sound is not common.
    This instrument is quite fragile against by notament at the table, and the cedar wood is soft enough so the slightest touch (even a nail lgrement plantvous leave a trace.
    Notice to the left, does not your prtez electro acoustic in a right-handed prtexte he wants to try, let me explain: the fact that a right-handed (he is also careful) take your guitar to play CRER will inevitably pressure on the prampli which will result in breaking of potart mdium paramtrique and prsence.J 'I demand 2 dj music magazine to order of spices and I am still waiting for rpar (ending for two years)!
    I take this opinion to say that this guitar is certe trs good excelente see, only the manufacturer of guitar (Seagull but not only all manufacturers) offer only a few trs MODELS for what is left regrtable who wants to dive into the world of guitare.De more the price is not the same (the era I pay 1000 francs more than the right hand what MODEL intolrable is because it is the same product)
    It will almost force people to play in right in the production of prtexte MODELS left-handed is not profitable as rare, I'm not daccord.
