A gloss-top finish and Quantum II electronics combine with quality tonewoods for a balanced, attractive sound.
By pairing a solid cedar top with locally grown wild cherry back and sides, Seagull has created an acoustic-electric guitar with distinctive tone. The wild cherry's sound lies between the mellowness of mahogany and the brightness of maple. The solid cedar top adds warmth with powerful projection. The gloss-top finish is genuine lacquer about the same thickness as Seagull's semi-gloss finish but buffed to a high luster for the added responsiveness of an extra light finish with the great looks of high-gloss. The smooth silverleaf maple neck is topped with a rosewood fretboard and rosewood bridge. The cutaway body makes the S6 + CW Cedar GT Quantum II an ideal choice for those who play all the way up the neck.
The Quantum II electronics provide a truly spectacular dual source system. The under-saddle pickup can be used on its own with excellent results in high volume situations or can be mixed with the signal from the internal microphone for more critical listening situations such as recording.

I've been playing and performing for 20 years and I have run the Gambit when it comes to different models of Acoustic electrics. This guitar has a perfect storm of great electronics and great warmth which is rare. The Q2 system sounds big and bold with great bottom end and is able to produce sweet overtones. I will not list all the guitars that I have had, but I must say that this guitar, and my Martin (with a fishman natural 2 in it) are the Best guitars I have heard plugged in. The Microphone captures the warmth of the cedar very nicely. The craftsman ship is superb and the guitar plays well too. (the action could be a lowered a little bit but nothing worth crying over). It's a great guitar... and worth every penny.....end of story. The Case is funky but I like things that are different. I play in a Seattle 3 piece band with just my acoustics, a harmonica and a drummer. We play Rock Clubs for 4 hours a night so I demand a lot of sound from my acoustics (Bass and Treble) and this one is fitting the bill nicely. Don't over think it, just run out and buy one and you just might kick your wife out of the house cause you found a new best friend.
I bought a Seagull about twenty years ago, as my first "good" acoustic. It was recommended at a local music store. I still have it and it's still got a bone straight neck and the tone gets better and better with each passing year. It's been scratched, hit, dropped, abused by small children, etc. You cannot go wrong with this guitar. I still play it everyday and it's the best, sweetest, warmest tone out there, especially for the money. The Canadians are doing a wonderful job with these guitars! I prefer the noncutaway for better bass response. Happy pickin'!
I just got this guitar for christmas and it is amazing. It has the nicest mellow sound you could ever find. I personaly think it is way better than a Martin. If you have the money and you are looking for a nice acoustic guitar this is the one you need.
This guitar has the sweetest sound! Both acoustically and plugged in it sounds way better than many famous brands I've tried and owned. Great buy!
I have been playing an S6 Cedar for about 8 years now and I love the sound. I have the older L.R.Baggs pickup but it still sounds great and is getting better every year. Been playing 25 years now and other than a vintage Martin D28 or D45 I wouldn't trade this for anything.
This guitar has the most amazing, sweet tone. A truss rod adjustment was necessary, out of the box. I prefer a bit lower action, and with a slight adjustment to the saddle....WOW, this guitar turned out perfect!! I did not like the TRIC hard case at first, I thought it was like storing a guitar in a giant foam ice chest, but I was way off with my initial thinking on that! This is one TOUGH case!! Just took a little bit of getting used to. The electronics are great, producing unbelievable sound variations plugged in. Very comfortable, fast neck. I LOVE this guitar! Buy it, this is a great deal!
This guitar was a present for my sixteenth birthday. I have owned it for almost a year now, and I still love it as much as I did when I got. It has some scratches on it from my nephew, but the sound and quailtiy of the guitar is not affected. This is a extremely well built guitar. Personally I say that it is a great buy
oh man...this thing just sings. I was a little skeptic of seagull at first, but after I played this I don't know why I was. The upper frets are actually reachable thanks to the low action, and the sound is unbelievable. You have to try it.
I own a Seagull S6 Performer and it is the best guitar for the price. It plays like guitars that go for twice as much. The most amazing thing is that the guitar is always in tune most guitars you have to tune before you play its one of the little things that you grow up dealing with but this one is ready to play all the time you must own this guitar.
I have owned a seagull s6 cedar for about 4 years and I love the way that it sounds. It is very full and warm sounding and has increased in sound quality overtime. This guitar was flat sounding out of the box! I was very dissapointed by my purchase. I was looking for a step up from my S6 and this guitar was not a good choice. Both the s6 and the performer use cerdar tops so i would not think there would be much difference in the sound, but there is a huge difference. It might be because of the glossy finish. I tend to stay away from glossy finifshes because the wood is not able to breathe therefore stays the same overtime. Overall very dissapointed to the point that I returned the guitar.
I purchased my S-Series S6 + CW Cedar GT after owning the S12. I play in the direct summer sun from Memorial Day through Labor Day 3 days a week. It rarely falls out of tune from string to string. The whole thing might go up or down, but pretty rare. The dual pickups and adjustment give it a great acoustic sound. The only thing I suggest is getting a backbuster. In some settings, I've had 440 feedback from the A string, but most guitars do. I'd definitely continue to buy Seagull products.
This is by far the best acoustic guitar i've played. The solid cedar top combined with the wild cherry back and sides give it the most unique sound ive ever heard out of an acoustic. Partially mellow, partially twangy and bright. The laquer finish on top, seems a little fragile, but it has never given me any problems, and has never cracked or worn. The finish is also very polished, which makes up for the lack of strength. There is absolutely no fretbuzz, and the silverleaf maple with rosewood fingerboard gives the neck a smooth playability. The Godin electronics work great, and the combination of mic/pickup adds to the incredible versatility of this guitar. The headstock has a unique shape that makes this guitar stick out while playing it and The body is shaped very nicely for incredible resonance. The machine heads are also very well crafted, and very rarely come out of tune. I was very impresssed at how well this guitar staying in tune, and in tone. I purchased this guitar new, online, and was concerned about not being able to play it before hand. When I got the guitar, I was not dissapointed one bit, and the guitar was in perfect playing condition. Overall best out of the box playing experience, and best acoustic guitar ive picked up. You wont regret it!
