Overview

Seagull acoustic guitars put this idea into motion after realizing that certain players love the S6 Original but prefer a more traditional feeling nut width. The New S6 Original Slim features a comfortable, slimmer than traditional 1.72 in. (4.37 cm) nut width. The same nut width as its parlor sized little brother with the big sound, the Seagull Grand.

The Slim's cream binding also helps differentiate this model from its S6 Original counterpart. The combination of the solid cedar top and wild cherry back and sides gives this guitar a full, warm contoured sound, further accentuated by the comfort of the silver leaf maple neck with rosewood fingerboard and double function truss rod. 

Another key characteristic to these guitars, as with all Seagull guitars, is the use of genuine lacquer finish, which enables the top to breathe and vibrate freely. This, in turn, promotes the aging process of the guitar, meaning that your instrument will actually sound better the more it is played over time. The S6 Original Slim keeps with the same Seagull high standards of quality and musicality.

I love Seagull guitars

By Jayel

from Birmingham Alabama

Comments about Seagull Slim Dreadnought QI EQ Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is my second Seagull. My first was an Excursion and I was so blown away with the quality workmanship and sound that I bought the Slim Dreadnought. They both sound beautiful to me strumming, picking, amplified or not. So, far I think I like the preamp on the Excursion slightly better but you can't go wrong with a Seagull in my opinion.
My best friend who has been playing in bands all of his life and uses only Zagers and Taylors likes it a lot also and says it's easier to play than his.

      Comments about Seagull Slim Dreadnought QI EQ Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I like the way the maple neck looks and feels. The piezo sounds good if you use your bare fingers. It's plenty loud. It's a strange combination of woods, but it works.

      Seagull Slim Dreadnought

      By Stevo

      from SC

      Comments about Seagull Slim Dreadnought QI EQ Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Was in the market for a decently priced, quality acoustic-electric dreadnought, found it here. I've played Seagulls before and was impressed by their sound and build-quality. This one is no different. the patina of the wood is also striking, all around a great playing/sounding/looking guitar at a reasonable price.

      awesome just straight out awesome

      By Gene Kang

      from Leesburg,VA

      Comments about Seagull Slim Dreadnought QI EQ Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      i would have given this six stars but the limit is five here. This guitar is great for fingerpicking or strumming. And if you like the original s6 seagull but don't like the fat neck, this is the guitar for you. It has a slimmer neck and a shorter nut. the satin finish on this guitar is stunning it has a more satisfying feeling to it then a glossy finish plus it doesn't stick to your arm when you play like it would if it was glossy. For the price it cant be beat, it sounds awesome plugged or unplugged. So do yourself a favor and go and get right now i mean like right now

      Comments about Seagull Slim Dreadnought QI EQ Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar a couple of weeks ago and it blows all my other guitars away. The tone quality is very good plus the onboard tuner is nice. You will not find many guitars this nice for this price.

      Worth more than what you pay

      By worldturnedupsidedown101

      from West Plains, MO

      Comments about Seagull Slim Dreadnought QI EQ Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I am so amazed at how well this instrument sounds! I can easily match this guitar against any high dollar Taylor or Martin for tone and clarity. Plus, it is so vibrantly rich in sound. The Q1 electronics reproduce the sound pretty faithfully and the onboard tuner does the job very well. I can just push a button, tune, and I'm right back to playing in less than 45 seconds. Awesome!

      Canadian Built

      By kyle

      from Fresno, CA

      Comments about Seagull Slim Dreadnought QI EQ Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      In my band, I only play acoustic maybe two to three times during a set. This guitar has never let me down. The action is very accessible, the body feels amazing. Especially considering I have to put it on quickly and take it off rather quickly as well. Very nice feel over-all. No buzz to speak of, so far. Nothing has broken or cracked. The tone is very deep and full. (Deep as in intense or profound) I will only ever play seagull acoustics. The only downside was drilling a hole into it... agh! I wish I didn't have to, but that's just how I play.

      great guitar, unique tone

      By bc

      from austin, tx

      Comments about Seagull Slim Dreadnought QI EQ Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      The construction and quality of this guitar are outstanding. The slim neck is a big help for those accustomed to electric guitars. The action is consistent, the tone is clear and balanced. The sound of the guitar is specific to the woods used to make it. Expect the midranges to be quite prominent, the bass and treble less so. The tone is pleasing to my ears, but some may miss the clear low notes. Works very well plugged in, and for composing any time. It is exactly what I wanted..

      Beautiful guitar

      By David-pMBKj

      from TEXAS

      Comments about Seagull Slim Dreadnought QI EQ Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I own an original Seagull S6, a nice Takamine, a Fender 12 string, and a Yamaha classical. I have played for many years and many guitars, including Taylors and Martins. This Seagull Slimline is by far the best playing instrument I have ever played and it is simply gorgeous. If you are shopping for a handmade, solid top guitar, look at these before you waste an extra $1000 on a Martin. This is the real deal and it will only get better with age.
