            Comments about Seagull Merlin Mahogany SG Dulcimer Guitar:

            I absolutely love this instrument. Because of the way that it is freted(as a scale) the minute that I opened the package I was able to start playing songs. My only complaint is that it is hard to find any chord charts.

            Comments about Seagull Merlin Mahogany SG Dulcimer Guitar:

            I'm not a corporate stooge. I'm not selling this to anyone. I'm a Rock Musician for 40 years. I bought this for my wife for Christmas and we jammed all day. Best Christmas in years! Bought the Mahogany top model. Great sound. Incredible well made. I had to find the nicely embroidered Seagull Merlin Gig-Gag elsewhere! Why doesn't M.F. sell it too??? I may get the "G" model to expand my options. Lets be honest.. this instrument is limited, but, my wife easily went from from "You Are My Sunshine" to "The World I Know " by Collective Soul. Good luck finding Chord charts. You'll figure it out. Lots of goofy YouTube Vids to inspire you. You will enyoy. ...T

              I bought this for a friend as a gift. These were his comments, "Truly an addicting little jewel of an instrument as I've ever picked up!!!...it'd be a great first instrument because it's so easy to sound good and I think it would be easy on a beginners fingers too...all stars from me!!!..." Looks like I might have to get one for myself!

                  My wife has been trying to teach me to play the guitar forever with little success. I bought one of these based on the reviews and every bit of it was true. easy easy easy! I thought myself to play a couple of songs by ear in just a few hours. This is a beautifully crafted little instrument. It is easy to tune and very forgiving when I fail to hold a string down properly. I highly recommend it for anyone but mostly for someone who wants a first string instrument that builds skills and confidence.

                    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.
