Product Description

The Seagull S6 Guitar – The Original Updated for Left-Handed Guitarists

Winner of several awards, the S6 is perhaps the instrument that best represents the Seagull philosophy. The S6 offers entry level players the opportunity to experience the great feel and superb sound provided by a hand finished neck, select solid Cedar top and a Custom Polished Finish.

The back and sides are constructed of wild cherry, the neck of silver-leaf maple, and a rosewood fingerboard and bridge.

Seagull guitars all feature Tusq nuts and saddles. The fully compensated saddle helps the Seagull S6 original acoustic guitar play beautifully in-tune all over the neck.

This model for the Seagull S6 guitar is designed with left-handed guitarists in mind.



The Seagull Original Guitar Series

The guitars that make up the Seagull Original series represent one of the world's outstanding values in acoustic guitars. The back and sides of the Original series models are made from a three-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 a choice. Original series guitars feature very smooth necks made from Silver Leaf Maple.

All Seagull Guitars Feature Reverse Headstocks

Each Seagull neck starts out as a single piece of Mahogany or Silver Leaf Maple. The wood is cut at a 45 degree angle after which the top piece - the Headstock - is glued back on with the grain reversed. This is an essential step in the Seagull process for creating incredibly stable necks.

More About Seagull Guitars

The Seagull story wouldn't be complete without mentioning La Patrie. La Patrie is a small village in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. This is where the first Seagulls were made in the early eighties. Today, La Patrie has a population of about 475 and about half of these people are guitar builders. These folks take a great deal of pride in the guitars they build.

    5I'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.

    5Amazing value
    By T. Butler
    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.

    5Great Guitar
    By R. T. Hood
    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.
