Solid tonewoods lend this guitar strong midrange response.

The body of the Seagull Maritime SWS Mini Jumbo acoustic guitar is solid mahogany and produces a strong sound with an emphasis on a mellow, round midrange. The Maritime SWS also features a solid spruce top, integrated set mahogany neck, chrome hardware, and an Indian rosewood bridge and fretboard. The guitar's high-gloss finish provides excellent protection but at the same time is extremely light and elastic. This is a crucial point in both the sound of the guitar and its ability to age-a thick finish muffles a guitar's vibration and blocks aging.

Beyond its curvaceous looks, the Maritime Mini Jumbo offers a sound distinguished by a strong midrange response, making it suitable for performing and recording situations that call for an acoustic guitar that will cut through the mix. The lively midrange in this Seagull guitar will also appeal to fingerstyle players. Case sold separately.

  • Best quality guitar value I could find

    As reviewed by George Brown on 8/3/2009

    After looking for months at dozens of guitars at many locations, I ordered this Seagull sight-unseen because I'd played various Seagulls and liked them all. But this one is solid wood; rare in any guitar this price, and a feature I demanded. It exceeded my highest expectations in its awesome sound, physical beauty and craftsmanship. It's been played by two guitarists with over 30 years experience each, and they were both highly impressed. Great instrument. Exceptional value!

  • A dream for under $700

    As reviewed by Jim on 1/10/2010

    I play fingerstyle country music mostly, i.e. Townes Van Zandt, Lyle Lovett, etc. and this guitar has exceeded all my expectations. It indeed has a cutting midrange, but I was also very impressed with the bass response. The high end is probably the least powerful but is unmistakably present none the less. The fit, feel, and overall ergonomics of the guitar are like a dream. Fits nicely in my lap and the wide fretboard is a great width as it gives fingerstylists, especially those who use finger picks, extra rooms to pluck strings. The neck cradles in your fret hand like a perfectly broken in hand-made leather boot, in a word, like a dream. The wood feels very pliable and doesn't sound muddled at all, and it will only get clearer with age! The tone is nor extremely bright nor overly warm. Like I've said it really shines through because of its midrange so your subtlties will always be heard through a band or a noisy cafe, or bar. It responds to pull-offs and hammer-ons really well! I can pull off over three frets with a light pluck and the volume levels stays strong throughout the pull-off. Aesthetically, it is beautiful. The woods are very attractive and most importantly the price. I played a 1981 Breedlove (never knew the model but it cost 1700 new) for a long time and aside from excitement about a new guitar, the Seagull really out performs the breedlove in every way I need it to. Chord strumming sounds great but I really think this guitar will please fingerstylists most because of its ability to shine the subtle sounds of fingerstyle guitar. I cannot imagine any fingerstylist who doesnt want to spend $3,000 on a guitar who wouldn't be dissapointed with this guitar.

  • Wow - great sound!

    As reviewed by John on 7/18/2011

    I tried out quite a few guitars over the last two months looking for just the right one. Seagulls just have an amazing balanced resonance with every string. I purchased the full size version of this, but exchanged it for the mini-jumbo after a day when I realized the dreadnaught was killing my shoulder. I think the mini-jumbo might have slightly less bass than the dread, but still has a great sounding full output from every string. I had a hard time returning the dread since it sounded so nice, but I'm really happy with the mini-jumbo. I knocked off 1 star, because the factory setup seems to have the strings a bit higher than I'd like. I have to push pretty hard to get clean barre chords. I'd still pick this guitar over anything else under $1000, but I figure it has to be perfect to get 5 stars - and it needs a little lower action in the factory setup to be perfect. So figure on spending another $50 to get a setup done after you buy it - or if you can DIY, then figure on spending a couple of hours filing down the nut and saddle a bit.
