OVERVIEW

The Seagull Coastline S12 is a 12-String acoustic-electric dreadnought guitar with 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 for which Seagull is known, the S12 features an ultra thin semi-gloss finish, a select pressure tested solid cedar top, and built-in Godin QI electronics that let you hit the stage fully loaded for any venue.

12-string guitars must endure a great deal of added neck stress. The Seagull neck design offers superior stability, even on the 12-string models 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.

Seagull Coastline series guitars are one of the world's outstanding values. The back and sides
of the Coastline series models are made 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. Coastline series guitars feature very smooth necks made from Silver Leaf Maple.

The Godin EPM Quantum acoustic-electric guitar system is simple in design and outstanding in performance. This single source system features an exceptionally responsive saddle transducer carefully matched to side mount electronics with rotary volume, bass, and treble controls. The electronics and controls are packaged in a small and easy to use format complemented with a finely crafted pewter cover plate. In combination with the transducer, the EQ control range and frequency content have been specifically contoured to provide a very rich and full sound reproduction resulting in performance seen only in far more complex systems.

With superior construction this 12-string sounds great and stays in tune!

Excellent Value In A 12 String

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

    This is a high quality Canadian made guitar, at a lower cost than most similar products put out by the major American companies. Their competitively priced products don't seem to be as well made as the Seagull, and to get a higher quality American made 12 string, you would have to pay at least double the cost of the Seagull Coastline. Unless you plan on making the 12 string your main, or only, guitar, why spend that much money? This is an excellent value, and if you haven't considered Seagull, along with Martin and Taylor, you should at least give one a try.

          Great guitar for the price. Easiest 12 string I have ever played. Action was a bit low on arrival but decided to leave it for ease of access. Sounds is wonderful. You just cannot go wrong with a Seagull.

              bittersweet

              By 

              from Decatur, IL

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

              This unit plays fine and sounds fine, that is the sweet part. The bitter part is that I payed for a brand new guitar and when this unit arrived it is so obviously a used guitar. The pick guard is badly marred, the documentation was literally ripped into, and a battery had been installed. Doesn't seem like I have been done right.

                    I bought this because I've had a seagull S12 since 1997 and it's been excellent. I'm moving to the middle east where I think these might be hard to get hold of, so thought I'd take a new one with me. Beautiful guitar, lovely tone, improves with age. The QI electronics are a big improvement (especially with built-it tuner) but don't give as much boost as the active pick-up I have in the old one. The solid tops are easily marked, but the sound is superb.

                          I've played acoustic guitar for over 40 years and someone brought over a Seagull 12 string that I tried out. It looks like I have been depriving myself of a whole other area of guitar exploration.
                          The guitar arrived badly in need of set up due to the action being extremely high. My luthier did some truss rod adjustment, saddle lowering, and nut groove filing and now this guitar plays like a dream. Setup is key!! Guitar stays in tune and has a wonderful resonant sound. Coupled with the on board electric controls you can't beat this guitar for pure strumming pleasure. Highly recommend!!!

                          Great sound. This is the 3rd I have owned. You do not have to step these down unless you are storing for a while. Cedar top sounds the best to me. Has good highs and mids. The tuner is just too kool. This is a new model compared to my older ones. The neck is made different, and hopefully stronger. I have put them through a lot of use. Have played other 12's, but just can't put down the Seagulls. I'll take them over any. Had to turn down the tone and bass on the guitar, and way down on the mids and highs on the amp. Acoustically, It's great. Just got to get the amp set right for that wonderful sound!

                          I am amazed with the sound of this guitar. The natural projection of this instrument will fill a good size room without amplification. It offers a beautiful, almost angelic sound on the high end. The craftsmanship is impeccable, the warmth of the cedar top is undeniably unique. As far as guitars, I have not been more pleased with any of my others.

                          I have owned this guitar for over 2 years now and have used it in many scenarios. The overall sound quality is remarkable. The bass booms, the highs are clear and bell-like, and all without muddying the mid-tones! I play it live regularly and have used it to do some recording for backing tracks. I even finger-style this bad boy from time to time and it is very clear at all levels
