Crafted out of quality materials with top-notch electronics.
The Seagull Mosaic CW Dreadnought QII is a cutaway acoustic-electric guitar with a solid cedar top and mahogany back and sides. Cedar and mahogany are a tonewood combination that produces a sweet sound that is enhanced in this guitar by a custom-polished finish. The Mosaic guitar's cutaway body gives you access to the entire fretboard. The Seagull Mosaic CW is a guitar that excels in more intimate musical settings.
The new compound curve top concept was originally developed for the Seagull Artist Series guitars and it is in these models that the new design really proves itself. The Artist Series luthiers choose from the very best of a stockpile that includes over a hundred thousand, luthier-grade, solid cedar and spruce boards. In fact, all of the tone woods for the Artist Series are hand-selected to ensure that the very highest standards are met. The scalloped bracing is designed to such precise tolerances that it requires a CNC milling machine to carve the individual pieces to the exact specifications. The finished instruments speak with incredible clarity and character — and that's before they open up. These guitars develop an even deeper character when 'played-in' and will no doubt become lifelong companions to those who choose them.
The new models will look familiar to Seagull enthusiasts, the straight-pull headstock remains—now adorned with a new 'Artist' logo —and the standard Seagull body shape has been altered only slightly with a narrower waist. All models are made with solid backs and sides. The impact of solid sides on the sound of a guitar is virtually immeasurable.
Sound and feel are where the new Artist Series guitars really distinguish themselves. The clear bottom end response arrives with plenty of punch and provides a suitable foundation to the harmonically rich sound that sits on top.
All the Artist Series Models are finished with a custom polished finish. The technique on semi-gloss models produces a beautiful sheen reminiscent of an antique violin finish. The spruce top models are also finished with a custom polished finish but a slightly thicker coating is buffed to a high gloss. The less delicate nature of this finish makes these models more appropriate for more aggressive playing.
The Godin EPM Quantum II acoustic guitar system provides outstanding sound reproduction and performance. The Quantum II is a hybrid system combining an exceptionally responsive saddle transducer and high quality electret microphone in a simple, but very effective, configuration. The microphone capsule, specifically designed for use in this application, is mounted at the end of a 6 inch flexible boom integral to the side mount electronics. Four rotary controls adjust microphone presence/phase, overall volume, and saddle transducer bass and treble. Electronics and controls are packaged in an easy to use and logical format complemented with a finely crafted pewter cover plate.
Microphone signal can be added and blended either in phase or out of phase with the saddle transducer signal. This allows the user to cancel (or notch) potentially undesirable frequencies while accentuating others. This flexibility in combining signals results in outstanding clarity and richness of tone.

I own an old cedar top seagull that sounds beautiful and plays great, so I decided to get an electric acoustic seagull. The first from Musicians Friend did not pick up the the high and low E's so I returned it. No problems with Musicians Friend. The next one I ordered from Amazon and it had some buzz noise when plugged in. I returned it to Seagull after loads of hassle trying to get any contact info. Seems they only want to hear from dealers. The rep Pat, was very defenive and rude. After much more hassle, the guitar was returned from ther repair shop smashed courtesy of UPS. Again dealt with rude and defensive Seagull repair center that said they could only send me a non-cutaway model as the Mosaic cutaway was discontinued and would not offer one more expensive cutaway. Bummer. 8 weeks later I called to check status of replacement only to be treated rudey again and told guitar takes 6 weeks to make and would ship "soon". No service to ever let me know this initially. I love the sound of cedar seagull's but obviously their work is not consistent. I could handle that. However due to the very consistently poor and rude service, I will never buy another Seagull. The non-cutaway (if it works properly), will be sold on ebay.
