Overview

This Seagull Cameo is a cutaway dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar that matches flame maple back and sides with a select solid spruce top. This guitar also features a high-gloss custom polished finish. The result is a bright sound with lots of projection. The Cameo is a great performance guitar that works well on stage with on-board LR Baggs i-Beam electronics installed.

Sound and feel are where the Seagull Artist Series guitars really distinguish themselves. The clear bottom end response arrives with plenty of punch and provides a suitable foundation to the harmonically rich sound that sits on top.

These guitars will look familiar to Seagull enthusiasts, the straight-pull headstock remains—now adorned with a new 'Artist' logo —and the standard Seagull body shape has been altered only slightly with a narrower waist. All models are made with solid backs and sides. The impact of solid sides on the sound of a guitar is virtually immeasurable.

The new compound curve top concept was originally developed for the Seagull Artist Series guitars and it is in these models that the new design really proves itself. The Artist Series luthiers choose from the very best of a stockpile that includes over a hundred thousand, luthier-grade, solid cedar and spruce boards. In fact, all of the tone woods for the Artist Series are hand-selected to ensure that the very highest standards are met. The scalloped bracing is designed to such precise tolerances that it requires a CNC milling machine to carve the individual pieces to the exact specifications. The finished instruments speak with incredible clarity and character — and that's before they open up. These guitars develop an even deeper character when 'played-in' and will no doubt become lifelong companions to those who choose them.

LR Baggs has pioneered the concept of combining an undersaddle transducer (Ribbon Transducer) with a revolutionary bridge plate transducer (iBeam). The i-Beam Duet blends the iBeam and Ribbon Transducer signals with an onboard preamp featuring a very sophisticated set of controls for mixing and equalization. This is the ultimate in onboard acoustic amplification.

Beauty is deep as the sea

Comments about Seagull Artist Series Cameo Dreadnought Cutaway i-Beam Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Deluxe Case:

This is a beautifull guitar, the solid flame maple back and sides and high gloss solid spruce top really make this instruement stand out. The electronics are top grade. The acoustic mike mounted inside the box gives a true acouustic sound when amplified. The only feature in this guitar that disapoints is, out of the box, the lack of that throatiness, ususally associated with the mid to high end acoustics. The tonal harmonic balance is really nice. I will play this guitar for many years to come, the on board high end elctronics makes this a very excellent guitar.

Very Nice Guitar / Very Good Value

By Dave

from Middleville, MI

Comments about Seagull Artist Series Cameo Dreadnought Cutaway i-Beam Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Deluxe Case:

Got this guitar for my daughter after playing many, many guitars over a few weeks - Taylor, Gibson, Martin, Takamine, Fender, Ovation (she's got an Ovation 12 string A/E), Rainsong, etc. Basically played everything under $2000. She (we) loved the sound and playability of the Seagull Cameo. The QII electronics are flawless and versatile, but could have included a tuner. She's doing performances and contests, and needed a serious guitar, so we weren't trying to save money, but we liked this guitar as much as the Tayors and Martins that were listed for a thousand bucks more and we are both impressed with the crafstmanship. We also picked up a traded in Fishman 100W Loudbox (combo amp), and now she can rattle the windows with crystal clear acoustic amplification. We thought we might break the bank, but got guitar and amp for around $1000. Unbelievable! Many, many hours of playing later and we think we hit a home run with this guitar.
