A brighter sounding spruce & mahogany dreadnought!
This Seagull Maritime Dreadnought is an acoustic guitar that features a high-gloss custom polished finish. This finish provides excellent protection but at the same time is extremely light and elastic. This is a crucial point in both the sound of the guitar and its ability to age - a thick finish muffles a guitar's vibration and blocks aging.
Seagull Maritime series guitars are made with a mahogany back and sides. Generally speaking, mahogany produces a mellower sound than other tone woods. The Maritime series Seagull guitars feature a unique lamination of mahogany on each side of a center layer of wild cherry. This results in a sound with slightly more highs than a typical mahogany guitar.

I have the Seagull M6, which is the predecessor to this model, as far as I can tell only the name changed when the Maritime series replaced the M series. Other than that it is the same guitar, with a solid spruce top and laminate mahogany/cherry back and sides. With the 1.8" neck and short scale it is comfortable for fingerstyle, the sweet sound you get complements fingerstyle well. I have played the original Seagull S6 many times and always strongly prefer this one, as spruce and mahogany will always beat the cedar and wild cherry of the S6. I've had my M6 more than two years now and it has opened up nicely. Whenever I hear someone else play it I'm amazed at how good it sounds when I listen from the front of the guitar.I think this guitar gets overlooked a little because it is at a peculiar price point. It is priced higher than the entry-level guitars. It is priced comparably to the Taylor 110 and Martin DX1, both fine guitars in their own right. The choice between these three comes down to a matter of taste, and I prefered this one over the bright Taylor sound, and I really think the high-pressure laminate back and sides of the X series Martins leaves something lacking.Anyway, for a couple hundred more dollars you can get solid-wood imports and for under $1000 you can get solid-wood Martins. With that in mind I still find this guitar very satisfying on its own merits.
