OVERVIEW

The popular S6 with a slimmer nut width.

Seagull acoustic guitars put this idea into motion after realizing that certain players love the S6 Original but prefer a more traditional feeling nut width.

'The S6 Cedar Slim features a comfortable, slimmer than traditional 1.72" (4.37 cm) nut width. The same nut width as its parlor-sized little brother with the big sound, the Seagull Grand. The Slim's cream binding also helps differentiate this model from its S6 Original counterpart.

The combination of the solid cedar top and wild cherry back & sides gives this guitar a full, warm contoured sound, further accentuated by the comfort of the silver leaf maple neck with rosewood fingerboard and double function truss rod.

Another key characteristic to this guitar, as with all Seagull guitars, is the use of genuine lacquer finish, which enables the top to breathe and vibrate freely. This in turn promotes the aging process of the guitar, meaning that your instrument will actually sound better the more it is played over time. The S6 Cedar Slim keeps with the same Seagull high standards of quality and musicality.

      Comments about Seagull Cedar Slim Acoustic Dreadnought:

      I compared this to Yamaha LL6 and just about every other guitar in the price range. Really liked the sound. This restock has a blemish on the front which appears to be within the wood itself rather than externally caused. I can live with it, and the sound is not affected by it at all. Action was very high "out of the box" so it needed to be taken down by the local shop. Neck was also in need of adjustment. Now that it is "tuned up" it plays really well. Seems like every accessory out there advises against use with nitro finish - so be aware when buying. I ended up buying a stand and tuner that both state not to use on this finish. That said, the finish on the guitar is first rate. Much nicer than the high gloss on most guitars. Just need to find accessories that won't affect the finish. Mine came with a pick guard installed, and it looks great.

        Comments about Seagull Cedar Slim Acoustic Dreadnought:

        I bought a blemished return, but no biggie. a small mark on the back of the neck, but I don't feel it. The action was high but MF helped me get it set up by my guitar tech. I brought him an Ibanez I bought from MF and asked him to set it up like that. He did and now Seagull is super sweet.

        One of the better laminates I've played

            Comments about Seagull Cedar Slim Acoustic Dreadnought:

            This is one of the best laminated acoustics I've played - and I've played many. The balance leans toward the bass, but not overwhelmingly so. It has excellent sustain and a surprising tone for a laminate. In terms of sound quality, I'd place it on par with the Taylor GS Mini that also gets surprisingly good tone from a laminate. The cherry is beautifully grained and the satin finish is very well done. This is an excellent choice for someone who wants a nice dreadnought without dropping a bundle of money.

            When I read many of these guitar reviews, it seems like each guitar is the best in the world because someone just bought it. Well, it isn't the best guitar in the world, but it's a nice one. To put my comments in perspective, I've been playing off and on for 50 years and have owned in the neighborhood of 40 guitars. I currently have a slew of nice guitars, including a Martin D-18vs, OM-28v, a Taylor GC8 and GS-Mini, a Gibson CJ-165,and others of equal caliber. [PS I still might not know what I'm talking about :-)].

              I bought this at a discount cuz it was returned with a small cosmetic flaw, boy howdy I'm glad I did. The flaw can't be felt, heard, or seen.....one of those tiny deals on the back of the neck. I would have been bummed if I paid full price, buy I did not and it id negligiblr, I love cedar. It may be bland to look ay, buy rich like butter to hear. The back, sided, and binding are very cool. A great size, loud, warm, and easy to plsy. If you like cedar, or warm tone, this is a winner!

                I am a newbie and this is such a wonderful guitar from what I have seen and heard so far. I am only 5'2" and have really small hands, so I was concerned before I purchased this but once I started practicing and replaced the strings with silk and steele Martin strings, it was all wonderful. The silk and steele strings were easier on my hands but what came on the guitar were great too. Worth every penny!

                  Comments about Seagull Cedar Slim Acoustic Dreadnought:

                  I have been hearing that Seagull is an excellent value for years. I started researching the best dreadnoughts in this price range and found that Yamaha, Washburn, Alvarez, Takamine, etc. make some quality guitars in that range. When I went to the store to play them, however, the Seagull rose above them all in my book. Part of it was the cedar top, that produces a warmer/richer tone than spruce. The clincher for me was the quality of construction. The lacquer is really thin, allowing the grain of the wood to breathe. You feel like you are touching wood when you pick up this guitar, not touching a thick coat of glossy lacquer. The fit and finish is first rate. You won't find much better quality for under a grand.

                  Comments about Seagull Cedar Slim Acoustic Dreadnought:

                  I had the S6 original but changed to the slim because the S6 was not as suited to chords and rhythm - the nut width makes barring harder. The S6 may be better for finger-style. The slim is a better compromise. Seagull are no-frills guitars with excellent craftsmanship. You are paying for quality material and pride in craft. A $x plane jane is a better instrument than a glossy $x foo foo guitar. There is no evidence of rushing the manufacturing process in Seagull guitars. They are flawless. I can only imagine what a higher end Seagull would be like.
                  I often play expensive guitars in stores just to see what they are like. Sure, they are better than a $x S6, but not considering the extra cost. It's hard to justify an expensive guitar when Seagull makes quality. You definitely pay for the name on the headstock on expensive guitars.

                    This guitar is a great guitar built with quality. Although the picture doesn't have a pick guard mine came with one which looks amazing on it. I feel like the Slim model plays a lot smoother then the original for me and would suggest it for anyone who feels the original is to wide.

                      I've gone to numerous music stores to find a truly good acoustic guitar on a budget. This little Seagull won by a landslide, everytime. Sure, it was a slightly more expensive than the other guitars I was considering, but the difference was lightyears apart. Stays in tune practically forever, no obnoxious heavy lacquer on the neck to stick you up, gorgeous tone, great sound projection. For the price, I can find nothing truly wrong with it. In fact, I would consider the tone to be competitive with double priced guitars from rival brands. I'm a Seagull fan for life now.

                      These guitars truly are exceptional. It sounds and plays amazing. For less than $700 you can get a guitar worthy of gigging that will compete with any of the better known, expensive brands. It would also be appropriate for someone learning too, as it is a little easier to play than the average dreadnought. Order a pick-guard for it though. They're cheap and they will protect it and make it look better (IMO).
