A gorgeous sunburst dreadnought made with hand selected tonewood.
The Seagull Artist Series Studio is a dreadnought acoustic guitar that features a gorgeous high-gloss custom polished burst finish on both the body and the bound headstock. Like all Seagull Artist Series guitars, Studio Bursts are proudly and meticulously crafted in Canada. These guitars are artfully created in a secluded acoustic studio, where some of the finest luthiers in the business are able to put their care and time into bringing them to life.
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.
These Artist 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 Artist model guitars are made with solid backs and sides. The impact of solid sides on the sound of a guitar is virtually immeasurable.
The guitar's 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. Artist Series luthiers choose from the very best Seagull's 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.

I got the version with QII pickup.The sound is somewhere in between Martins and Taylors. Brighter and not as muddled as Martins but also warmer than Taylors.Pros:-This guitar is made of all solid wood (top, side, and bottom).-The gloss is really nicely done in that it rivals Taylors and Martins. The guitar isn't outsourced to overseas (unlike low-end Taylors or Breedloves).-QII hybrid (piezo + mic) pickups are really great, plus the built-in tuner is definitely a plus.-The "gig" bag it comes with is much nicer than regular gig bag that comes with other guitars in the price sector.Cons:-The inlays aren't as ornate as what you can find in guitars like Breedlove AC25.-The strings it comes with (Godin Phospher Light) isn't as slick as Elixars on Breedloves and Taylors. But it's a cheap replacement.
