I'm A happy camper and would recomend this guitar to any one looking for a very good hand crafted guitar @ a reasonable price
By wiskers in ohio
I wanted a hand crafted guitar that didn't come from China .There wasn't many reviews for this guitar but they were all good, so I took
a chance on it. "Was very pleased with the purchase! The guitar is very clear, and has a mellow but aggressive tone. I'm not a
Professional player I have two other guitars, a Yamaha FG335 & a Alvarez RD16. The Seagull S6 outshines them both.
I know it's not compared to a hand crafted American Gibson or Martin, but to my ears it sounds great! Also the set up on this guitar was very easy with no problems @ all. I set the neck relief to .008 thousands, lowered the bridge nut so that the low "E" string was .090 thousands & the high "E" string to .075 thousands. Also the neck nut grooves were perfect. This reflects that the
maple neck was straight & the frets were ground flat & even, took about an hour.Not even close for the time it took to set up my other two guitars that I spent four hours or more on filing frets. I bought this guitar for a very good price from "Amazon" and I'm very happy with it! Also this guitar has cherry back & sides & a solid cedar top. I've noticed that "Martin" makes one of there American hand crafted guitars with cherry back & sides, that costs about four times the price of the Seagull s6.

I have to say I love this guitar, though I'll admit that I don't have any comparison with big-dollar acoustics. I do have some high end electric guitars though, and since that is my main preference, I wanted a more modest acoustic just for fun.
This is very well made, and plays great. Fairly low action, hold tune well, strong resonance. No complaints at all. Given the cost of other US Made acoustics (this is made in Canada, which is in-line the US labor costs), I don't know how they make this for this cost.

Bought this for my Left Handed daughter for Christmas as upgrade from her Takemine she had started with. Wow what a difference in the warmth and depth of the sound from this Seagull vs. the Takemine. She described it as "Sweet like a Chocolate orange and warm like a cup of hot coco" For under $500 you can't do better.
