In 1982, Robert Godin Guitars produced the first Seagull in the Village of LaPatrie, Quebec. The concept for the Seagull guitar was to take the essential components of the best handcrafted guitars, such as solid tops and beautiful finishes, and build these features into guitars that could be priced within the reach of working musicians.
Seagull guitars are still made in Canada, from start to finish, in the small village in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. For more than a quarter century, crafting Seagull guitars has been a true passion for the devoted guitar makers who call LaPatrie home. Today, LaPatrie has a population of about 475, with about half of them guitar builders. From the award-winning full-bodied S6 Original, to the Maritime SWS Mini-Jumbo, and the exquisite sound of the Artist Series, Seagull continues to make believers out of players the world over.
