OVERVIEW

A great sounding twelve-string that will stay in tune!

The Seagull Coastline Series S12 is a cedar top dreadnought guitar with a rich, full sound that only a quality 12-string guitar can produce. With a warm mid-range tone and of course, the award winning craftsmanship and value Seagull is known for, the S12 Dreadnought features an ultra thin semi-gloss finish, a select pressure tested solid cedar top, and eco-friendly wild cherry back and sides.

12-string guitars must endure a great deal of added stress on the neck. The Seagull neck design offers superior stability, even on 12-string guitars tuned to concert pitch. The straight string pull of the tapered Seagull headstock is an especially big advantage when it comes to tuning a 12-string guitar and keeping it in tune.

Guitars in the Seagull Coastline series are among the world's outstanding values in acoustic guitars. The back and sides of Coastline series guitars are crafted from a 3-layer lamination of wild cherry wood. With a sound that lands somewhere between the mellow tone of a mahogany guitar and the bright sound of maple, wild cherry has proven itself to be an excellent tone wood. Grown locally, wild cherry is also an ecologically friendly choice. Seagull Coastline series guitars feature very smooth necks made from Silver Leaf Maple.

    Comments about Seagull Coastline Series S12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

    Many classify a premium guitar by price. For me it's playability and sound. I was wanting a 12 string for a while but everything I picked up locally was difficult to play (action too high) or just didn't have that sound I was looking for (I want to clearly hear that high G string whilst playing). So as I was looking around here at Musicians Friend I found the Seagull S12 with 25 five star reviews. The more reviews I read the more I thought perhaps I need to give this one a try so finally I called to order one.

    I could not be more pleased with this guitar. The action is low, which is perfect as I am a finger picker/strummer. Pick? We don't need no stinking pick! This guitar has the lush 12 string sound I was looking for and plays like a dream. If you are on the fence about this one, just go ahead and buy one, I think you will be pleasantly surprised, I certainly was. It's rare to find a guitar set up perfectly right out of the box. I just love my Seagull S12. I thought I would have to pay 3 to 4 times the price to get a 12 string axe this nice.

    This truly is a premium guitar and one of my favorites!

        Comments about Seagull Coastline Series S12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

        Seagull as a whole is one of the very best bang for the buck guitars out there. The fit and finish is flawless. So if your like me and demand perfection from your instruments then you will not be disappointed. It plays very nice and stays in tune very well. It plays very much like a Taylor 150e. However the tone is very different. Keep in mind this is a cedar top guitar and you will not get that super bright tone like spruce or maple. The only criticism is the strings that come on it are bad. I use Elixer.

        Comments about Seagull Coastline Series S12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

        I've had this for 6 weeks now, and I'm very happy with it. It arrived in perfect condition and properly set up. It stays in tune and sounds great.

        I've always thought Seagulls were the best bang for your buck out there, and this reinforces that opinion. If you want to try out a 12-string, I can't imagine you can find a better guitar for the money.

          Comments about Seagull Coastline Series S12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

          I've had several guitars over the years, including 12 strings. If it has strings on it I've probably owned or played it! The S12 is the best 12 string I have owned or played. It stays in tune and most importantly it frets easily! If you're looking for a acoustic 12 string this is your guitar-especially for the price. I've had or played top name 12 strings that cost 5 to 10 times as much and don't play or sound 5 to 10 times better. Try it, buy it.

              Comments about Seagull Coastline Series S12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

              I have owned one of these for over 6 years now. I had a budget of more then twice the value of this guitar but I picked this one over more fancy instruments simply because of the sound and playability.

              It projects very well and it's the only instrument I never adjusted the action. It aged well and sounds better now. It doesn't have the spark of an high end Taylor, but it sounds better then any Martin or Takamine 12 strings I have tried. Doesn't have scalloped braces, is a bit neck heavy and has laminated sides and back, but it still ages well and is a perfect instrument for camping and jamming by camp fire.

              Its construction is meant to survive the harsh temperature and humidity changes of Canadian climate, making it more sturdy then any fancy instrument on the market. When humidity changes in North Carolina, my expensive Taylor guitars are dramatically shifting shape, it's scary, but not my Seagull. It's built like a tank.

              I recorded with it and was very satisfied by the detailed sound. One thing I like from it is that when I dig it hard, the prominent voice makes the 12 strings sound slightly compressed/overdriven. It's quite unique for an acoustic instrument. When playing by campfire on camping site, neighbours are attracted by the unusual pretty loud sound since people are not used to loud 12 strings sound.

                I own two electric 12 strings but this is my first acoustic 12. It has a rich full sound with plenty of volume. The finish was great, frets were trimmed and smooth. The action is good with no fret buzz right out of the box. It is also cool that it is not made in the 3rd world, but in Canada, despite the reasonable price. I would recommend this guitar to anyone.

                  Comments about Seagull Coastline Series S12 Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

                  Bought mine at a local guitar shop a few years ago. Normally I play a 6-string electric, but wanted ONE 12-string acoustic/electric in my arsenal. For a 12-string in the $5XX range, this guitar is as good as you're going to get. The only guitars I tried out that were even a TAD better, were 3X to 4X the price.

                  Mine has an internal pickup, which I have never used, so No Comment on the electronics. I switched the strings to "Earthwood" which have a little silk in them. Softer on the fingers, gives up a little of the Tone, but I'm happy with them.

                  Mine stays in tune OK, but after playing 2 or 3 songs, I need to tune it a bit. I view this as fairly NORMAL for 12-strings (please correct me if I'm off base on this). With this guitar, I do mostly Rhythm, but an occasional Lead hook is do-able. The harder you push it, the better it sounds. NO FRET BUZZ.

                  Most lower-priced 12-strings are real BACKBREAKERS to play, which is a huge discouragement, so I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this 12-string Seagull. A VERY PLAYABLE instrument with nice looks and great sound, and it won't break the bank!!
