    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

      Comments about Seagull Merlin Mahogany SG Dulcimer Guitar:

      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!

          Comments about Seagull Merlin Mahogany SG Dulcimer Guitar:

          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.

                    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.
