Seagull

Rich acoustics, collectible body woods, and integrated Godin electronics offer a guitar with exceptional value for players of all levels.

Once again, Seagull brings incredible value to guitar players looking for undeniable sound and craftsmanship in an acoustic guitar. The Entourage CW Black GT QIT acoustic-electric guitar includes onboard Quantum I electronics with a built-in tuner and the added feature of a cutaway in the body for easy access to the upper frets on the guitar neck.

Built on a 3-layer hard wood laminate design, the Seagull Entourage guitar features solid cedar top and wild cherry back and sides, producing crisp, bold sound, with plenty of midrange punch. This acoustic-electric guitar is more than capable of sounding great in various settings. Whether playing light, fingerstyle progressions, or chopping away on the rhythm, the Seagull Entourage can easily keep up.

The silver leaf maple neck brings out clarity, while the Indian rosewood bridge and fretboard add to the sustain. The Seagull guitar's soft C-shaped neck, slim nut width, and cutaway provide comfort for intricate movements and progressions.

At the heart of the Seagull Entourage acoustic electric guitar is an integrated electronics system, letting you plug in and amplify your sound quickly. The Godin Quantum I acoustic guitar system is simple in design and outstanding in performance. 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. The Seagull Entourage acoustic electric guitar also includes a built-in high-quality digital chromatic tuner with LED display.

Dressed in a Gloss top finish, and semi gloss back and sides finish, and featuring chrome hardware, the Seagull Entourage guitar will be at your side, looking sharp and sounding superb.

Comments about Seagull Entourage CW Black GT QIT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar a few weeks ago, and I've been playing on it at least a few hours a day since I got it. This is really only a review of it's acoustic (non-electric) qualities. (We recently had a wiring problem and my amp and Fender Tele were fried as a result.)

The first thing I noticed picking it up was the the shorter scale, which is a little shorter than I was used to at 24.84 inches. It's not necessarily a detraction from the guitar, but, if you're a taller or lankier person, it will feel smaller in your hands.

The second thing I noticed was the tone and playability/action, which was easy across the fretboard. There were no buzzes or rough fretwires, nor were there any places that were out of tune with other strings. No truss rod adjustment was necessary.

The third thing I noticed was the sensitivity displayed across the dynamic spectrum. This is the first cedar-topped guitar I've owned, but there is such clarity in the softer, more piano range. This guitar absolutely rings when picking with fingers or a pick, even with strings that need to be changed. I've owned a solid-top spruce Seagull and Alvarez guitars, and neither could come close to matching this. It can handle a more aggressive strum, and, while it's plenty loud when you do, it "hits the wall" a little sooner than a spruce top might. Still, the warmth and clarit of tone is outstanding.

The finish on the guitar isn't the most impressive I've seen in this price range, but it isn't bad. The top is glossy; the back/sides have a flat or satiny finish, and you can feel the wood grain through the paint. (Seagull/Godin talk on their website about special finishes that are thin so the wood can 'sing' more freely. I guess that's what they're talking about.) The neck is a satin finish, and very smooth for quick action.

A lot of on-board tuners out there have a pretty wide tolerance for what they consider "in tune", but this one is accurate, easy to read and use. There is still plenty of bass and overall balance even with a cutaway, which is something I couldn't say for my old Alvarez. I have bent strings, jammed out, and waited until I absolutely had to change strings, and this guitar does not want to play out of tune. My previous Seagull was the same way, but these guitars stay in tune. I bought this Seagull because of the experience I had with them before, and I have not been let down. I was madly in love with a Martin D18 before I moved about a year ago, and, even after life got in the way of my budget for a new guitar, I sincerely believe this guitar sounds and plays just as well at a third of the price.

I would strongly recommend using a humidifier as this guitar's finish is thinner than most others. Also, the Godin strings than came on the guitar sounded pretty good, but I don't know what gauge they were. I put on some medium Martin SPs, and they sound great.

Comments about Seagull Entourage CW Black GT QIT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I already have 1 Seagull Entourage Rustic finish and, this guitar is just as wonderfull as the Rustic model. I really like the cutaway it makes the top frets more accessable and, the tone is just a little bit different than the non-cutaway but, it's a nice difference. Seagull really builds a GREAT guitar, if you haven't tried one you're missing out on a really nice playing,sweet sounding and a very affordable guitar. Highly recommended; Very satisfied musician.

Comments about Seagull Entourage CW Black GT QIT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

It's just like the S6 but it is black. Look online at the reviews the S6 is getting.

I bought this for my sons birthday. I played Seagull guitars years ago and I have always been impressed with the sound and overall quality.

I have many years of guitar experience and trainied with classical guitar as a music major in college.

In my opinion this guitar blows away most major brands in this price range including Martins and Taylor. Don't take my word for it, go down to your local guitar shop and compare it for yourself.

Replace the strings right away with Martin MSP4100 Phosphor Bronze Light Acoustic Strings and this guitar will come alive.

The top is cedar which means that you need to be a little more careful that is doesnt get dinged up. It has a nice warm sound though. Ok, YEAH… the back and sides are laminate but they are triple-ply which gives the guitar a really soild feel. Keep in mind what price range you are in.

When this guitar is plugged in it has a great sound...Much better than I expected. The built in tuner is an extra bonus.

Just like with any guitar - don't buy it because of the name brand… buy it because of how it sounds.

I OWN IT

By TBone Hellraiser

from Trinidad & Tobago

Comments about Seagull Entourage CW Black GT QIT Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

So I got this guitar (Seagull Entourage CW Black GT QIT Acoustic-Electric Guitar) for my birthday in August. The day before my birthday my guitar arrived and sad enough it came with bad news, the front panelling crack straight down on the facing closer to the tuner/tone control. I got absolutely no compensation for it as it it was a blame game and I just became very annoyed.So its November now as as I hardly played it due to the eye sore of seeing the crack but I decided to change the strings and start using it more as I started a band.Now do not get me wrong... the sound is still very beautiful, the problem I have is, the quality on this guitar is way less superior to any other older model seagull's. They obviously used cheaper materials and craftmanship to make this guitar because as I took off the strings I realised the top piece that spaces the strings dropped straight off.... and if that wasnt bad enough, after putting the pegs back in at the bottom they kept slipping out as though the holes were a tad too big and had absolutely no grip.Overall, this guitar's tone is really beautiful and rich like other seagull's but judging from my mishaps, maybe you should look into an older seagull or maybe a breedlove or takamine.
