Overview

The Seagull Coastline Series S12 is a cedar top dreadnought guitar with a rich, full sound that only a quality 12-string guitar can produce. With a warm mid-range tone and of course, the award winning craftsmanship and value Seagull is known for, the S12 Dreadnought features an ultra thin semi-gloss finish, a select pressure tested solid cedar top, and eco-friendly wild cherry back and sides.

12-string guitars must endure a great deal of added stress on the neck. The Seagull neck design offers superior stability, even on 12-string guitars tuned to concert pitch. The straight string pull of the tapered Seagull headstock is an especially big advantage when it comes to tuning a 12-string guitar and keeping it in tune.

Guitars in the Seagull Coastline series are among the world's outstanding values in acoustic guitars. The back and sides of Coastline series guitars are crafted from a 3-layer lamination of wild cherry wood. With a sound that lands somewhere between the mellow tone of a mahogany guitar and the bright sound of maple, wild cherry has proven itself to be an excellent tone wood. Grown locally, wild cherry is also an ecologically friendly choice. Seagull Coastline series guitars feature very smooth necks made from Silver Leaf Maple.

Smooth Playing, Great Sounding, a Great buy

By TediRouge Alias

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Seagull Coastline Series S12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

For a 12 string, and it's quality, SMOOTH playability and great resounding sound, this guitar is totally worth the price. The neck is comfortable and stable, and stays in tune for a reasonably long time. If you're looking for a nice acoustic 12 I recommend giving this guitar a play.

Grand Value

By jeremy

from Blacklick, Oh

Comments about Seagull Coastline Series S12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

I think this guitar sounds absolutely amazing for it' price. This is the first 12-String I've ever owned. It stays in tune rather well also. The one bad thing about this 12-string is that the shell is extremely soft wood. You can literally make a good sized dent in the wood just by using a fingernail. I accidentally did it! Overall, wonderful acoustic amplifiction.

      I love this guitar. It does go out of tune during an evening but the sound is really nice. We use it for about 4 songs throughout the night and the sound is rich and in your face! Thank you

      Comments about Seagull Coastline Series S12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

      A very nice, very playable guitar, with a really powerful, shimmery 12-string sound. I've used it solo and with a band and it got lots of praise from the audience, fellow musicians and even the sound guy. And the price is amazing for a guitar of this quality. It easily holds its own with guitars at twice the price.

      The neck is fairly hefty - it will feel odd at first if you're coming from a 6-string - but the action is great and I soon got used to it.

      The built-in pickup works well - it's pretty neutral so you just get the voice of the guitar coming through.

      It stays in tune very well. One important thing to note if you've owned twelve-string guitars before is that this one is really designed to be tuned at concert pitch. I tuned it a half-tone flat at first (which is what many people do with 12-strings) but actually the sound and intonation suffer if you do. The manufacturer has recommendations for the string gauges you should use at concert pitch.

      The only criticism I can think of is that the built-in tuner is not really accurate enough for a 12-string. I assume that it's the same one as on the 6-string Coastline guitars. Buy a decent clip-on tuner and use that instead.

        Comments about Seagull Coastline Series S12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

        Did not know much about seagull guitars. But the reviews were all good so I gave it a try. I could not be happier! Nothing fancy about it... but well built ! Great fit and finish! Nice low action. Neck is kinda wide.. but I have had no problems playing it. And it's made by our neighbors to the north, I figure that's better than China.

          Comments about Seagull Coastline Series S12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

          I have owned many 12 string guitars through the years, and this one is one of my favorites. A quality product for a great price. It does not have the great deep rich sound of my Gibson Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar, but it has a good sound, cedar wood and Godin electronics.
