Overview

The Seagull Entourage CW GT QI Acoustic-Electric Guitar offers an exceptional value for players of all levels. This finely crafted Canadian made instrument features a select pressure tested solid cedar top and wild cherry back & sides. Also this model features the Seagull Slim neck with a 1-3/4" nut width, which is great for players who are more accustomed to a more traditional nut width.

The Entourage CW GT QI includes onboard Quantum I electronics with a built-in tuner and the added feature of a cutaway in the body for easy access to the upper frets on the neck.

Godin QI
The Godin EPM Quantum acoustic guitar system is simple in design and outstanding in performance. This single source system features an exceptionally responsive saddle transducer carefully matched to side mount electronics with rotary volume, bass, and treble controls. The electronics and controls are packaged in a small and easy to use format complemented with a finely crafted pewter cover plate. In combination with the transducer, the EQ control range and frequency content have been specifically contoured to provide a very rich and full sound reproduction resulting in performance seen only in far more complex systems.

The Godin Q1 also includes a built-in high quality digital chromatic tuner with LED display. Case sold separately.

    Play for my own environment. This is my second Seagull guitar. They are the best value for the money in my opinion for an acoustic electric.

    Just a fantastick instrument

    By EDWARD

    from Nashua , N.H.

    Comments about Seagull Entourage CW GT QI Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I just bought my Seagull GT-Q1 acoustic guitar (Black One ) at G.C two days ago. I just can't put this guitar down. I have been playing acoustic for twenty years with plenty of Mid price Martins under my belt. This Seagull has the Martins beat. It is so comfortable and easy to finger chords and notes ,because of the smooth slender neck. I did change the strings , I put on Martin #12 Phosphorus Bronze and this guitar just leaped out with great sound both unplugged and through an amp. Try one of these and I bet you will purchase it.

    I enjoy this at least as much as the Martins I played, and it's half the price

    By Dale Anderson

    from Shoreline, WA

    Comments about Seagull Entourage CW GT QI Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    These Entourage models are a super value, but I'm not saying they play like some value-model. I enjoyed playing the Seagulls at least as much as the Martins I played, and in fact I think the neck was a little more comfortable for my hands. I think it sounds especially sweet plugged in.. but that may just be the slight dissociation of hearing it through a speaker vs up against your body (kind of like hearing yourself through a microphone). Anyway, the pickup sounds really nice, really nice woody tone. And the built in tuner is super convenient. I wish that it would time out and turn itself off automatically, however despite my kids' fascination with turning it on and leaving it on, the original battery is still working fine after a month. I got mine with the burgundy finish and it's so pretty, but I have to say, the rustic model that was at the store exposed the cherry back/sides color which was so lovely. Mine's just burgundy all over. So I named her Mindy, which sort of rhymes with burgundy. Honestly I think the cherry was more pretty than the mahogany on the Maritime models. Very good-looking wood! I noticed little difference between this and the more expensive Maritime models, although I couldn't put my finger on it, I thought the Maritime sounded just a shade nicer. Maybe it's the mahogany. I was told that cherry tends to break in over time and sound just as good. Time will tell on that but this is the nicest guitar I've ever had. Love it! Sounds great with John Pearce strings and they were a little heavier than the factory strings, but a small twist of the truss rod had the neck straight as an arrow again. Thanks to both the Michaels at Guitar Center Seattle!

    Very Nice Guitar

    By Thomas L Maxwell

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about Seagull Entourage CW GT QI Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I purchased this guitar after reading all of the glowing reviews on this site and others. I also watched all of the videos on YouTube. I'll be honest, I am a neophyte (newbie) guitar player so I don't know that much about them. So take this review with a grain of salt but I know there are other newbies out there trying to make a decision so I hope this review helps them. I went to guitar center and tried out this guitar as well as the Yamaha 730gtx and others. Since I am new, I asked some other folks there, employees and customers, to play many different guitars. They did so willingly and were very happy to help out. To be honest all of the guitars sounded really nice, but the Seagull was a bit warmer to my old ears while the Yamaha was a bit brighter. My goal is to bum around and learn a few chords and maybe some finger picking of old folk music so I liked the warmer sound of the Seagull. And with all of the great reviews, I figured it was a sure bet. I like fine furniture, so the satin/matte finish of the Seagull Rustic guitars (hello McFly! Rustic!) didn't really turn me on. It is really nicely done mind you, but my taste is for a glossy finish. So I opted for the GT (Gloss Top) in the burgundy. After opening the box, I am very very very pleased with my decision. They aren't kidding when they say "Gloss Top!" The burgundy high gloss top is simply beautiful! It looks like a fine piece of cherry furniture you would buy for your formal dining room - absolutely gorgeous! I don't regret my decision at all. Same for the headstock, it is just as beautiful and makes for one nice looking guitar. Mine shipped from Kansas. I ordered it on Memorial day and had it shipped to the Katy, TX. store. The tracking was smooth and always accurate, I received an email when it shipped and when it arrived. I went to pick it up and when the GC associate looked up my order he said, "Seagull! What a great choice. That is a fine guitar." When we opened the box in the store, all of the associates in the area had the same reaction, "Wow! That is really nice." The entire purchase process was very smooth. The GC associate who helped me was very helpful and empathetic to my ignorance - my words, not his. He answered my questions and help me pick out a case, strap, winder, and capo. I had read that the silk-n-steel strings are really nice and easy on the fingers. The associate said, "You really don't need them with this guitar," but he helped me pick them out none-the-less. He looked at the setup for me and after playing it said, "This guitar needs nothing! It plays perfectly." I'll admit, it sounded really nice when he played it, although I can't get the same sounds out of it that he did. After plunking around on it, I will say that it seems to play really easily for me to. The sound is beautiful to me. It is deep and rich with the mellow sound I like to hear when listening to guitar music. The bass is really sound and sustains well. It sounds really good plugged in also. I don't like real bright sounding guitars so this one suites my taste just fine. I look forward to learning to play it well. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase and with the service that GC and their associates gave me. The memorial day discount, free shipping, and great service provided me with a very nice guitar, case, and accessories for under $700. The guitar, to be honest with you, sounds as good to me as the $1500 guitars. But again, I am a neophyte. I am sure there must be differences between this and $1,500+ guitar but it was hard for me to hear them. This guitar is very highly recommended to newbies, beginners, and intermediate players. Those advanced players don't need these reviews anyway. But I understand a lot of pros and advanced players play Seagull guitars. I think if you try this guitar out, you will be very happy with it.

    Seagull Entourage CW GT QI Burgundy

    By WILLIAM GREENE

    from Memphis, TN

    Comments about Seagull Entourage CW GT QI Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar online from GC in Nov. 2012. It was near perfect right out of the box. However,the strings that came on my guitar were dead sounding. I tried a few sets of strings and so far the 80/20 bronze type compliment the cedar top better than the phos-bronze and really make the guitar come alive. The guitar has an incredible, rich sound. The action is good and the neck is comfortable. The electronics are decent but you have to really be mindful of the tuner power button when putting the guitar in the case. It is very easy to turn on by accident.The tuner works well and the guitar stays in tune. This is a very beautiful,well made guitar.It rivals others that cost hundreds of dollars more. I love mine.

    In love with this guitar

    By Rebecca Maslikowski

    from Joplin, MO

    Comments about Seagull Entourage CW GT QI Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've had this guitar for a year now and I love it just as much as the first time I played it. I liked it much more than the Martin in the same price range and I really like the sound of a Martin. I still can't believe the quality for the price. Solid wood, the sound is super rich and warm and projects more than expected. Sounds great for any style I play and even plugged in. HIGHLY recommend this guitar. People constantly say she's beautiful and talk about how nice the sound is.

    seagull entourage cw qi gt fine guitar

    By James Miller

    from st. louis mo.

    Comments about Seagull Entourage CW GT QI Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I purcased a seagull s6 about six months ago from guitars center. I love the s6 seagull more than the martin d1 and the martin omcpa4. I sold the martins and brought the seagull entourage cw gt qi a few weeks ago. This guitar is also a fine guitar and with the new high luster polish finish it is one good lookin guitar. I just like the way the seagull guitars play and sound and how they feel so good while playing them. I give both seagulls I own a five star. I will be buying the seagull s6 qi in the near future so I can plug into a amp or pa if needed. I realize every guitar player likes what he or she likes in guitars, after thirty five years of playing a stat and a few years of playing acoustic guitars, seagull acoustic guitars will be the only acoustic I will be playing till I get to old to play. There is something special to me about seagull guitars. Try one and most people I think will agree with me.
