      Comments about Seagull Merlin Mahogany SG Dulcimer Guitar:

      really fun instrument to play around with. needed something different to add to my music. this little guy is easy to play , its much louder than expected, and the build quality is great.
      kind of sounds like a banjo and mandolin mixed.
      celtic I guess. hard to put down.

        Comments about Seagull Merlin Mahogany SG Dulcimer Guitar:

        This is an odd looking little instrument, but it shows typical Seagull quality, despite it's less than "showy" finish. It is light, tunes easily, and has a fuller sound than other similar "strum stick" type dulcimers. A little tricky to hold while playing, but not as bad as some "travel guitars" I've played. A strap helps a good bit.
        For this kind of dulcimer guitar, it seems to be the value leader in sound. The short scale is a little limiting, but it still has many uses and has to be a best buy.

              Comments about Seagull Merlin Mahogany SG Dulcimer Guitar:

              Three words to describe: Fun, Fun, Fun! Great quality, even better sound, easy to play, was playing songs immediatly... Could use about 3 more frets up the neck (dulcimers have much more range) but overall it is a great instrument. I bought this as a guitar player to play along with my wife on her (real) dulcimer: they sound fantastic together!

                    This instrument has a heavenly tone great for begginers or experts. It is quite addictive. Not really for learning songs, but incredibly fun. The build quality is great. It is a little work of art. I want another one!

                          Made in Canada, eh! It's very well made, sounds good, easy to play and a really great bargain! I got it to record a different sound. It's fun and easy to play and something new to learn. It's not just for folk music.

                            Tons of fun to play with no learning curve whatsoever. Surprising amount of volume for a small instrument.

                                Got this awesome little thing a few weeks ago and played songs with it that night! It's so easy to play! Cool celtic like sound. And for the price it is a great quality instrument. Built for learners or experts. I handed it to my 9 year old niece and she sounded great! The frets are on a scale rather than chromatic so you can't make it sound bad. Lots of fun.
