Overview

The Seagull Maritime SWS Folk acoustic guitar is made with a solid mahogany body. The guitar's mahogany body produces a strong sound with an emphasis on a mellow, round midrange. The Maritime SWS Folk 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 Maritime SWS guitar and its ability to age-a thick finish muffles a guitar's vibration and blocks aging.

      Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Folk High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

      I purchased this guitar because I wanted a smaller body guitar with a wider fretboard at the nut that was better suited for fingerstyle playing. I spoke with a MF associate because I wanted to purchase an open box unit which was rated "mint". When my guitar arrived it was in perfect condition in every way just as promised. It plays great with a very good tone that is consistent with solid mahogany back and sides and a spruce top. The only adjustment that I will make is to lower the bridge piece slightly and adjust the truss rod a bit to suit my personal preferences. All in all a really good guitar!

      Seagull Martime SWS Review

      By Frederick Hewett

      from Raleigh

      Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Folk High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

      This was my first "real" guitar that I bought. I got is used. It was suggested that I get this one as it was a good deal for the money on a solid wood guitar. It sounded great so I bought it. Little did I know what a jewel I had. After playing for two years I decided that I needed a "nicer" acoustic so I bought a Martin HD 28. Now don't get me wrong - my Martin is just so perfectly hand crafted and sounds amazing and nothing compares to it when you are playing live with other musicians and you want your sound to come through. However I find that the pure balanced sound that comes from my seagull is just as good. It is 1/3 the price and I play it just as much for performances as I do my Martin.

      There is simply not a better guitar for the money. I would buy it again and again.

      Good Value

      By John Jackson

      from Canada

      Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Folk High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

      This is a good guitar for the money. I call it my favorite second guitar. I wouldn't have it as my only guitar as when strumming for chords and singing along the sound is a little thin compared to a full sized guitar.

      For a comfortable and versatile couch guitar it is just right. I don't think it competes with higher priced guitars over $2k; if you're GAS'ing for a Martin 000-18 and buy this one to quench the thirst and save some cash, there's a good chance you'll still be GAS'ing for the Martin sooner or later.

      But, if you're looking for a second guitar and are trying to decide if, say, a Taylor GC3 is worth the price and you buy this one instead, chances are you'll be happy with your purchase.

      The neck is wide like the standard Seagull neck but is very playable. I think the guitar is best for finger picking as it has a very well balanced tone when it's not played to hard. Light strumming is fine as well, as is light flat picking, but strum or pick too hard and the sound comes apart.

      Mine had a blemish that wasn't noticed by the dealer or the factory (the factory inspection card came with the guitar). It's not a big blemish but once you notice it, especially on a new guitar, it does take some wind out of your sails. The dealer was good and gave me a $50 store credit but I don't have any experience with Seagull customer service as we never took the issue that far.

      Overall I would buy this guitar again if the need arose.
      Plain appointments; plastic binding; tusq nut and saddle; nice finish
      No setup issues; plays well; tuners are mediocre
      Hard to find a comparably spec'd guitar for the price

      Seagull SWS Folk HG

      By photo612

      from Georgia

      Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Folk High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

      Value exceeds the price to me.
      My Seagull arrived today and I was impressed. Not my first or even my second guitar. Quality is fantastic on mine, low action right out of the box, not a single blemish, not even a single fret edge that needs to be filed. Their quality control is very impressive. I prefer finger-style and the 1.8 nut is perfect for me and the size is nice too. Would have rated a 10, but Seagull has I thing a better one, but do not wish to pay the higher price. Musician's Friend is always a pleasure to deal with. Last year I got a different brand with an unacceptable blemish on the top, and the made a quick exchange no problem at all.
      Great quality

      Beautiful Guitar

      By My First Guitar

      from Portland, Oregon

      Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Folk High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

      I have had this guitar for one day. Let me tell you, I was nervous because I ordered it online without actually seeing or hearing it. I just read reviews and knew Seagull was well respected. Well, I am very, very happy with what arrived. It is a beautiful solid wood guitar for a great price. The wood is gorgeous, the mahogany back and sides just GLOW and the spruce top is clear and looks like it should be on a much more expensive guitar. It sounds great, but I do have a beginner's ear. Did I mention the wood is beautiful? OK now for the reality check. The glossy finish is not 100% flawless. If you stare at it, there are a just a few specks of dust that landed on it while the coating was being sprayed or drying. And the center seam down the back does not hit the neck visually dead center, it's offset maybe 2mm. And there was a extremely tiny bit of excess glue on the edge of the headstock veneer that probably could have been sanded away, but wasn't. Doesn't bother me at all, just be aware this is not a $5,000 instrument, so there is not $5,000 worth of finishing time that was spent making it "perfect." But for the price, what you get is just magnificent.

      Prefer the Matte Finish

      By Mel

      from Greenacres, wa

      Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Folk High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

      I really like the looks of the high gloss better than the matte finish, but the sound on the matte is so much richer - not worth the little bit of extra shine to lose the beautiful rich tone of the matte seagull.

      Great-Underated

      By Josh

      from Fairfax, VA

      Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Folk High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

      First and foremost Seagull is an extremely underrated and unappreciated company. The quality of guitars they release show tremendous craftsmanship and care. This guitar has a very deep full sound that is able to fill a room. I would prefer to use this without plugging in to a system at a beach or a park. That's the type of feel you get with this guitar. However, if you do use this with a system it will blow people away with the sound and the price attached to it.

      Seagull Maritime SWS Folk High Gloss Acoustic Guitar

      By Jeff Arnold

      from Dallas, TX

      Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Folk High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

      One of 5 different style guitars in my stable. The guitar has a beautiful sound, I've lusted over many, and for under a thousand dollars you get way more then your bucks worth. I started on a classical, so the wider nut has made the transition to acoustic a breeze. The guitar has made me a better player, you can't be sloppy on the frets, you need proper position or it will spank you and as a student I so appreciate having an exacting teacher in my hands when I'm alone and practicing. Sound wise I try to live in the guitar stores and I've heard a lot of different guitars, and for the money this is the one you want. Be careful, there is a tremendous tonal difference in the lower priced Godin. My guitar was created from beautiful materials, and appears to have been built with hands that know and appreciate craftsmanship and are proud of their product. I've owned mine for 18 months and would buy again if was ever lost, stolen or damaged. If you're serious, want to look and sound good, and still have money to eat after leaving the store; Godin Maritime SWS is what you want.
