I have had my Seagull S6 since 1988, and it wasn't new then. I have had other more expensive acoustics and sold them or traded them, but the Seagull remains my primary acoustic. The S6 may be inexpensive and plain compared to the abalone-laden and pearl-encrusted offerings of other manufactured, but it has a sound that has audibly improved over the years until to my ears it easily rivals any Taylor, Martin, or Guild that I have played. That may sound like extravagant praise but I assure you that it isn't. The Seagull S6 is my go-to acoustic. The new ones are just as good as the old one. In its price range it outstrips any other make and it is frankly better, sonically, than many other more expensive guitars. Don't take my word for it. Try one for yourself. And notice: you don't see a lot of used Seagulls around. Mine's certainly not for sale.

My Seagull still plays good but developed a crack in the finish on the top from bridge to outside edge running with the grain but not in center. The guitar was never abused. The company would not stand behind their product.

best value

By Korm

from Denver, Co

Comments about Seagull The Original S6 Acoustic Guitar:

After much research, decided on Seagull s6 guitar. Did not buy at guitar center, because they did not carry at the time. Paid 325.00. You can not get any guitar close to the quality and sound of this Canadian made guitar. It compares with many higher end guitars in sound. I found most accoustic guitars in the 300.00 range are made in china , korea, indonesia, and are basicly pretty generic. Does not make them bad, but also does not make them stand out like the seagull. One other guitar that stood out and i considered strongly was the takamine gs 330. Very, very nice sound, but once again i felt the quality was not a match for the seagull. For about 100.00 more (includes seagull case) i have a guitar that i can hand down over the course of time, and should easily maintain its value.

Seagull S6 GT

By BT

from Los Angeles

Comments about Seagull The Original S6 Acoustic Guitar:

I purchased my Seagull S6 GT over a year ago. This is my first guitar as I am a beginner. I tried out several other guitars in the $200 - $600 price range and this one was by far the best in terms of sound, craftsmanship, and playability and sounded as good as some of the higher priced guitars. This will be a guitar I will keep for a long time and not feel guilty about getting it banged around playing on camping trips etc. I'd recommend this guitar to any new beginner.

Still great after 10 years

By Mike H

from Flint, MI / Cincinnati, OH

Comments about Seagull The Original S6 Acoustic Guitar:

My S6 is was purchased in 1997 so it will be 10 years old in July. It has remained a consistent play with a slightly brighter sound than when new. I guess it is due to the wood aging but I am no acoustics expert. I would recommend this guitar over the similarly priced Korean and Chinese offerings.

Seagull S6 Acoustic Guitar

By Matthijs94

from Houston, TX

Comments about Seagull The Original S6 Acoustic Guitar:

I was looking for a good sounding guitar in the $200-$600 price range, and tried a Taylor Big Baby and several other guitars. This guitar beat the Big Baby by far; it has much warmer and clearer sound. This guitar is great sounding and for a very good value. If you are looking for a very deep sounding guitar, don't buy this. It is not too warm, the bass comes out just right actually, nice and loud. I recommend this to any beginner, but also to longer playing people.

Excellent Guitar

By L.M.

from Greenville, SC

Comments about Seagull The Original S6 Acoustic Guitar:

There are many reasons to buy this guitar. First and foremost, it's probably the best sounding guitar under $600. The cedar top gives it a very nice sound. Second, it is made in Canada rather than overseas like most brands. Even the lower end Taylors and Martins are made in Mexico. Made in Canada means good quality... for instance I've found that it holds up well to heavy strumming without buzzing. Third, the wide nut and shorter scale length mean easier playability since the strings are father apart and take less force to push down. Fourth, the guitar looks great... wild cherry back and sides and natural finish. Finally, the guitar has good volume. I can't really think of a disadvantage... unless pride in your guitar is something you want to avoid. I've talked to multiple friends who know alot about guitars and all of them seemed favorable to Seagull brand. I think this guitar gets overlooked alot by people shopping just for brand name. Seagull is part of Godin, which is better known. I ordered the guitar from Guitar Center and had it shipped to my house. No issues... arrived in good condition within 4 days. I don't usually write reviews because I am too busy between work, family, and having fun, but I am just so pleased that I wanted to share.

Absolutely beautiful. Asthetically as well as tonally.

By flylikeicarus

from Hillsdale, NJ

Comments about Seagull The Original S6 Acoustic Guitar:

I've had this guitar for about two and a half weeks now, and it has done nothing but amaze me. I remember hearing about it from a few sources awhile ago, but I didn't think much about it until I arrived at my local Guitar Center. I originally had my mind set on a Martin 000cx1e, however, upon picking up and playing the Seagull, I knew it was for me. This guitar has a surprisingly rich and warm tone that is almost comparable to higher end Martins and Taylors. The wild cherry back and sides make it unique and very pleasing to the eye. Unfortunately, this guitar is much too underrated. For its price, it is an amazing deal, and even aside from the money, I would still highly recommend it to players of any level who want a new acoustic guitar that truly does its job.

Great value, sound

By Matt

from Hebron, CT

Comments about Seagull The Original S6 Acoustic Guitar:

I've had my S6 since they were introduced. For the money, it is one of the best sounding acoustic guitars I've played. The solid cedar top vibrates freely and offers a full, rich sound. The silverleaf maple neck is comfortable and offers great clarity and sustain. The laminated wild cherry sides and back sound a lot like mahogany, but without the volume. Be very aware that cedar tops need more care than spruce, which has a tighter grain. The cedar MUST be humidified and does not store well. After spending some time in the case (I had forgotten to refill the humidor), I took out my S6 and started to tune it. A horrible crack later and the top had ripped a large square around the bridge and sound hole. It is not repairable without replacing the entire top. :-(

Love everything about it

By Sheila Rodriguez

from Chicago, Illinois

Comments about Seagull The Original S6 Acoustic Guitar:

I got my Seagull S6 Original from my parents for Christmas this year and I couldn't be happier with it. Although relatively inexpensive, this guitar has amazed me with everything from its tonal quality to the simple yet elegant look it possessed. This guitar also projects sound really well. I seriously haven't been able to put it down. At first, I was slightly nervous when I chose the guitar because I chose it strictly based off of the online information and the comments/reviews on it. But now, there are no doubts in my mind that I made the right choice for me. I love everything about this guitar.

Seagull S6

By Fadi

from Lebanon

Comments about Seagull The Original S6 Acoustic Guitar:

I wanted to find a guitar that was well made and at an affordable price, so after some research I found the Seagull. I played around with the S6 and the Entourage mini jumbo, I liked both a lot but I found the S6 to have a fuller sound and I bought it. It�ۡ���s been a week and I love the feel and sound of it I recommend it to anyone who wants a quality guitar at an affordable price.
