Overview

The Seagull Performer Mini Jumbo QI Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a 3-layer hardwood laminated body and a solid spruce top for a superb blend of rich tones. The guitar also has an integrated set neck joint and, Indian rosewood fretboard and bridge, and a Quantum I pickup for a great plugged-in experience.

Compound Curve Top Design

The guitar top is the part of the instrument that most affects the sound. It is also the most delicate part of any high quality acoustic guitar. The grade and thickness of the wood used (solid spruce), as well as the bracing structure, have a huge impact on the instrument's sound. The idea of applying an arch or a curve to the top is appealing because the added strength of an arched top should allow for the use of a thinner and more lightly braced top. While this is true, there remains a trade-off in applying a curve to the entire top. The most active part of the top is the area centered on the bridge. Applying a curve to this part of the top restricts movement resulting in a loss of dynamic range. On the other hand, the area of the top above the sound hole moves minimally but is problematic because it tends to sink if the guitar dries out even slightly. This tendency is also encouraged by downward pressure from the fingerboard resting on top of it. The solution is a top that has a compound curve.

In the Seagull Performer's design, the top is arched slightly in the area above the sound hole and levels out in the area around the bridge. The compound curve top produces excellent stability in the upper part of the guitar top and the power and projection made possible by leaving the top flat below the sound hole flat. With the weak area above the sound hole stabilized, it is possible to make the rest of the top even more active with the bracing design that allows unprecedented control over the top vibration. The bracing for the Seagull Performer Cutaway QI Guitar is quarter-sawn spruce, scalloped and carved to conform exactly to the curvature of the tops. Includes gigbag.

Awesome Guitar

By Charlie Moore

from Madison, SD

Comments about Seagull Performer Cutaway Mini Jumbo Flame Maple QI Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar has been nothing short of awesome. It has such a clean crisp tone. It is super easy to play and plays like a high dollar guitar. This is hands down the best guitar for the money. Plus, the over all look of the guitar is super sharp. I got rid of all of my other accoustics have this one showed up. It is hands down the best one I have owned.

Art at its best

By Travis

from cambridge city, indiana

Comments about Seagull Performer Cutaway Mini Jumbo Flame Maple QI Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This would have to be the greatest guitar I have ever owned. If anyone has this guitar and its considering getting rid of it, DON'T DO IT! I play fingerstyle usually Andy Mckee and Eric Mongrain style and this guitar is fantastic for that style of play. The string spacing is phenominal and it always stays in tune for me even in high tunings as FACFCF. I would recommend this guitar to anybody and i would definately buy another one just for the heck of it.

great guitar

By will grifenhagen

from columbus, ga

Comments about Seagull Performer Cutaway Mini Jumbo Flame Maple QI Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

great guitar. very accurate on board tuner, very good pickup in it, great EVERYTHING. this guitar is better than most of the gibson's i own, and it feels better. my gibson songwriter deluxe is not only jealous, but is also getting very lonely watching me play this masterpeice. over all, this guitar is probably the cheapest guitar i own, while also being one of the best.
