A steel-string acoustic guitar made with quality materials and superb construction.

The Maritime SWS Rosewood SG Acoustic Guitar offers luxurious all solid tonewood construction with a select pressure-tested solid spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides. The Maritime SWS RW SG also boasts a semi-gloss custom polished finish with a beautiful satin sheen. The finish provides excellent protection and at the same time is extremely light and elastic. This is a crucial point in both the sound of the Maritime SWS guitar and its ability to age-a thick finish muffles a guitar's vibration and blocks aging.

Body style
Slightly smaller than a typical dreadnought guitar, the Maritime SWS Rosewood SG Acoustic Guitar is narrower in the upper bout. This shape discourages unwanted boominess in the sound and is one of the factors that results in Seagulls being such excellent recording guitars.

Select Pressure Tested Solid Tops
A guitar produces sound as a result of the vibration of its strings. What's not so obvious is the role that the guitar top plays in amplifying these vibrations. In fact, the vibration of the top is the most important factor in a guitar's sound. Solid top guitars offer richer sound and wider dynamic range (they play better at both soft and loud volume levels). The most interesting thing about a solid top guitar is that it will actually sound better over time.

All Seagull guitars are made with select pressure-tested solid tonewood tops. Each solid top is crafted from a single layer of spruce or cedar and is pressure-tested to ensure its highest level of rigidity and stiffness along with maximum harmonic vibration. The extraordinary wood used in Seagull guitars comes from trees that are hundreds of years old. The tight, straight grain in this wood produces a unique combination of strength and flexibility. The top is strong enough-in the direction of the grain-to withstand the pull of the strings, while at the same time it's flexible enough-across the grain-to vibrate freely.

The perfect neck angle
Neck angle has a tremendous effect on guitar tone. The Seagull re-design served as the impetus for several refinements to Godin's neck matching technology. Seagull guitar bodies and necks are now matched with incredible precision and the new compound curve in the top provides the additional stability necessary to achieve and maintain optimum neck pitch

The Tapered Headstock - Tuning Made Easy
Tuning can be a pain-in-the-neck (sorry). You may have wondered why it is that even after you have carefully tuned each string, it is often necessary to go back and make further adjustments on a few of the strings. This is because the guitar neck moves slightly as you change the tension of the strings. Therefore you don't just tune the strings, you balance the guitar's neck at the same time.

The tapered headstock on Seagull guitars provides straight string pull, minimizing the effect of neck twisting. This makes it much easier to get your guitar in tune and to keep it that way. The Seagull Maritime SWS guitar's tapered headstock is particularly advantageous for the growing ranks of players who use open tunings. Case sold separately.

  • Finally found what I was looking for!

    As reviewed by NATHAN BEST on 8/23/2012

    The last two months have been spent buying and returning almost every acoustic which Guitar Center sold that was all solid woods and under $1000. I tried Epiphone, Fender, Seagull, Martin, Taylor, Ibanez, Yamaha and even a Wechter from a different retailer. Many of these guitars had some things going for them and I probably would been "ok" with any of them but ultimately the guitar that won out for me in this marathon of comparison shopping was the Maritime SWS Rosewood. It blew the other guitars out of the water in terms of acoustic tone and volume not to mention the way it looked and it's playability. It was also a bargain considering the solid construction and the materials used. Seagull really impressed with all the guitars of theirs that I tried and this one was the best of that bunch. The only slight drawback was the lack of electronics on this model but that was easily fixed with the installation of an L.R. Baggs M80 pickup. For less than 1000 bucks I now have a guitar that plays like a dream plugged or unplugged.

    As reviewed by IntrepidPlayer on 6/6/2010

    Outstanding Guitar! The craftsmanship for this instrument is incredible for the price. It was perfectly set up right out of the box and the sound from it is explained in one word from the title... sublime. Very even tone all the way around with deep bass to crystal clear highs. This is not a complaint but more of a desire, but as nice as the "custom polished" finish is on this guitar (in other words, satin finish) I wish that it was high gloss but at the same price that it currently retails at. Bottom line, if you want an all solid wood guitar of this high a caliber that's built in No. America... then go no further than this.
