A sweet sounding acoustic made with hand-selected tonewoods.
The Seagull Artist Series Mosaic Folk is an acoustic guitar that features a combination of mahogany and cedar that makes for a very warm sounding guitar. The Mosaic Folk guitar has a custom polished finish for a luster that falls between semi-gloss and high-gloss. The finish is not only gorgeous to look at but is exceptionally responsive, making the Mosaic Folk a guitar well-suited to softer musical styles.
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.
The new models 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.
Sound and feel are where the new 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.

If you are not familiar with the Seagull name, you should check them out. Seagull is a sub-brand of Godin. These guitars are hand-made in La Patrie, Quebec, Canada. The quality of their work truly is incredible. In my opinion, they are on the same level as Taylor, Martin, Gibson and Breedlove -- without the hefty price tag.I bought the Mosaic Folk a few years a go. It is the best guitar I have owned, to this point. I have never had an issue with it, and it has aged amazingly. Although, it does not have the projection with it's smaller body and cedar top like you would find in a Taylor, I have found it is still well able to fill a room with great sound. I remember reading the description on [@]'s website before I bought it, and it described the guitar as "ideal for intimate settings." I think that pretty well sums this guitar up.It has a great lush warm tone that would leave even the most critical ear satisfied. What I appreciate the most about Seagull guitars is they seem to spend the majority of their efforts in making a guitar that sounds great. There are next to no frills on any of their guitars. I like it that way. Although, that isn't to say that this guitar isn't aesthetically pleasing as well. It's just that the guitar's features are understated. It is adorned with abolone shells on the Seagull emblem both on the headstock and 12th fret as well as the bridge pin dots. The bridge is simple but very nice, and the headstock is very unique. At first, I wasn't sure if I would be a fan of the headstock shape and size, but I've grown accustomed to it's quirky design. I've found the shape and size, in fact, serve a purpose. They say it is designed to improve tuning stability. I think they're right.All in all, if you are willing to venture beyond Martin, Taylor and Gibson, I think you will find Seagull has a ton to offer. Their guitars deserve every bit as much respect as the grandfather brands we've all grown up around. I hope this sheds some much needed light on this great guitar.
I owe this guitar and love it. The folk size is great and makes many people jealous. It's small but still kicks out the sound well. The best part about the guitar is the softness. I am a mellow singer and the smooth strumming and fingerpicking sounds great.
