Seagull

Solid tonewoods lend this guitar strong midrange response.

The body of the Seagull Maritime SWS Mini Jumbo acoustic guitar is solid mahogany and produces a strong sound with an emphasis on a mellow, round midrange. The Maritime SWS also features a solid spruce top, integrated set mahogany neck, chrome hardware, and an Indian rosewood bridge and fretboard. The guitar's high-gloss 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.

Beyond its curvaceous looks, the Maritime Mini Jumbo offers a sound distinguished by a strong midrange response, making it suitable for performing and recording situations that call for an acoustic guitar that will cut through the mix. The lively midrange in this Seagull guitar will also appeal to fingerstyle players. Case sold separately.

          Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Mini Jumbo High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

          Seagull chooses beautiful woods for their guitars. The mahogany back and sides of this glisten like a tigereye gemstone, as the guitar or the light moves. The tuners add a nice pretty chrome bright spot and the combination is just a pretty looking guitar.

          I got this guitar as an upgrade to my Yamaha acoustic (APX-700). While it doesn't have the electronics built in that the Yamaha does (the Seagull is not an acoustic/electric) the Yamaha has plywood body while this one is all solid wood: mahogany and a spruce top.

          The sound is great, and worth the upgrade, but I think the differences between the two could be more than just the solid wood. The geometries are different, too, and I don't know about the bracing and internal details. It does have a very nice tone, I don't mean to degrade it, but it's not a $5000 solid Koa Martin.

          As for Musician's Friend's part, I bought this as "Gently Used", the second tier of used guitars, during the recent sale. They're very conservative in how they rate guitars. I had to look at it closely to find the dings they mention, and I personally would have rated it higher.

            Beautiful guitar, lovely tone, very good build quality. I wanted the wider neck for fingerstyle, and it is comfortable and easy to play.

            But Seagull seems to care little for customer questions. I had a simple question regarding the guitar. No phone number, just an email address is given. That would be OK but they don't seem to answer emails at the given address, either.

            I can understand trying to keep customer support from being a money drain, but at least some form of asking questions is important if they wish to remain a respected company. One review star off for lack of any real support.

            Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Mini Jumbo High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

            Okay, So I am a fan of Seagull and most of the Godin family of guitars. The reviews of this guitar made me want to try one and I'm looking for a slightly different sound than my Masterbilt EF500RCCE (great guitar, btw). Despites it's solid wood construction, it's tone was less impressive than the mini-jumbo Entourage series. Not very loud and lackluster all the way around. The finish seems exceptionally thick and while it will make this a very durable instrument over time, I feel that it greatly dampens the tone and sound of this guitar. Like all Seagull's, it felt very well built and was quite beautiful. Soundwise, it was a major dissapointment. Save your money and buy a Martin performing artist - that's what I'm going to do.

            Acoustic heaven on a budget

            Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Mini Jumbo High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

            These guitars vary on their spruce tops between a 4A or 3A grade of spruce. There is a fair amount of silking on all the tops on this model. The guitar is devoid of any embellishments such as a heal cap on the neck, fancy abalone inlays, neck bindings. In short the guitar was built to play easily and sound excellent and it lives up to this demand.The neck is as true as any Martin I've seen. The frets are well dressed, the neck angle true and straight. The guitar is devoid of the dreaded bent neck from the 14-20th frets (as so many have). The 1.8" string spacing, at the nut, keeps you from tripping over your fingers and muting adjacent strings on difficult chord progressions.Tonally the guitar is very well balanced with excellent projection, good attack, and a responsive action for finger style players. The bass and mids are precise and clear and the treble is just below that of a Taylor, but still very clear.Harmonically the guitar is amazing. There are no dead spots on the neck. Every fret rings out true and chimes on harmonic equivalents are easily accomplished anywhere on the neck. The action is low and only slightly higher than those who enjoy an extremely low action would prefer.The guitar is high gloss in finish, but the back of the neck and headstock appear to have no finish whatsoever. The wood grain can be plainly seen on the back of the neck. The good news, however, is that the palm of your hand does not stick to the neck. Moreover, the guitar has a shallow 4.5" body depth and yet projects better than many dreadnoughts I have played over the years. The result is a guitar that sits comfortably on your lap and close to your body and yet sounds beautiful. In conclusion, this guitar provides you the opportunity to enjoy a guitar that sounds nearly as good as all but the highest grade Martins at a price that many can afford. It is not designed to be beautiful, but to be played. However, since form follows function -it is beautiful! I would love to hear this guitar with a Planet Waves O-Port projection cone installed. With such a device, amplification would rarely be needed.

            Seagull Maritime SWS Mini Jumbo

            By AWD

            from Michigan

            Comments about Seagull Maritime SWS Mini Jumbo High Gloss Acoustic Guitar:

            First off, this is an amazing deal for all higher quality solid tone woods.Secondly, the tone is to die for. I'd describe the tone as balanced with a small boost in the highs and mids, very vocal like quality. Not as bright as my Taylor, which isn't a bad thing. Seems to just as home to playing fingerstyle as it does to strumming.Thirdly, it plays wonderfully. The string spacing is really nice for fingerpicking. It's not as wide as say a Martin OM, but wider than a standard dreadnought. The action is quick, but it's not the best I've played (that'll go to a Taylor 514ce or a Yairi WY1).Lastly, I don't care for the tuning pegs. Too small.
