A bright sounding cutaway dreadnought with flamed maple back & sides and LR Baggs Electronics.
This Seagull Cameo is a cutaway dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar that matches flame maple back and sides with a select solid spruce top. This guitar also features a high-gloss custom polished finish. The result is a bright sound with lots of projection. The Cameo is a great performance guitar that works well on stage with on-board LR Baggs i-Beam electronics installed.
Sound and feel are where the Seagull Artist Series guitars really distinguish themselves. The clear bottom end response arrives with plenty of punch and provides a suitable foundation to the harmonically rich sound that sits on top.
These guitars will look familiar to Seagull enthusiasts, the straight-pull headstock remains—now adorned with a new 'Artist' logo —and the standard Seagull body shape has been altered only slightly with a narrower waist. All models are made with solid backs and sides. The impact of solid sides on the sound of a guitar is virtually immeasurable.
The new compound curve top concept was originally developed for the Seagull Artist Series guitars and it is in these models that the new design really proves itself. The Artist Series luthiers choose from the very best of a stockpile that includes over a hundred thousand, luthier-grade, solid cedar and spruce boards. In fact, all of the tone woods for the Artist Series are hand-selected to ensure that the very highest standards are met. The scalloped bracing is designed to such precise tolerances that it requires a CNC milling machine to carve the individual pieces to the exact specifications. The finished instruments speak with incredible clarity and character — and that's before they open up. These guitars develop an even deeper character when 'played-in' and will no doubt become lifelong companions to those who choose them.
LR Baggs has pioneered the concept of combining an undersaddle transducer (Ribbon Transducer) with a revolutionary bridge plate transducer (iBeam). The i-Beam Duet blends the iBeam and Ribbon Transducer signals with an onboard preamp featuring a very sophisticated set of controls for mixing and equalization. This is the ultimate in onboard acoustic amplification.

I have owned this guitar for over a year. The guitar seems be opening up but is still a little quite acoustically. The Primium all solid woods are excellent, the L.R. Baggs electronics are high end. The action out of the box is OK. You will probably have it set up by others anyway. The guitar is really made to be played plugged in. The price seems reasonable but if a person plays unplugged, this guitar may dissapoint. My recommendation is Play the instrument plugged in and unplugged. If the guitar suits you and you can afford it, buy it.
