I've not found many reviews on this particular model of Seagull guitar, nor can I find it on their website. But I took a chance on it and I'm really glad I did. First off, it does indeed include Fishman Sonitone electronics. The controls are mounted deep in the top of the soundhole, which is why they don't show up in pics. instrument plug is built into the battery box (externally accessed). I've not yet tried out the electronics, so apologies for that. It also comes loaded with Cleartone treated strings (wound G), which I actually like.

Fit and finish. The finish on the guitar is more brown than the reddish color in the pics, but very beautiful. The fit is amazing, every seam is flush, and you cannot feel or see any gap between the fingerboard and neck. The frets are level, and very well dressed (zero sharp or proud edges). The binding is perfect, as is every other seam on the guitar. Tusq XL saddle and nut btw.

The action is perfect for me (I like a low action), and it sounds amazing. The neck is fast and very playable for my larger hands. The guitar rings clear with good mid-range and highs with excellent sustain. For reference, I'm not a "high end" guitar owner," the nicest in my small collection is an original Yamaha FG-300 Nippon Gakki (mom it bought new in '72) and this Seagull matches/exceeds it's sound but in it's own voice.

I have played Seagulls before. A couple friends own them, and I have enjoyed them. I would call them a "pleasant guitar." Not astounding, as many owners rate them, but decent enough. So, when this model was offered on SDOTD I jumped on it. I though it would be a great extra guitar for practice and performing. When I tuned it up and started strumming, all I would think was "Wow! This guitar sounds awful!" Thin, 'tinny,' 'jangly,' devoid of warmth, no rich mids, with no bottom end at all. Nothing like the other Seagulls I have played. This instrument is incredibly disappointing. Had I paid full price I would send it back immediately. I am still undecided whether to keep it, even at the low price I paid.

First off: It is worth nowhere near the regular price. The model with this same name is quite different at other retailers. This one cannot be found on Seagull's website either. So it appears to be a MF/GC exclusive. That's not necessarily bad, but there can be a differences from standard models.

The guitar looks nice. The neck feels good, with that slim Seagull feel. The action is low. All plusses right out of the box. However, there is substantial fret buzz from the 2nd to the 6th fret. I am hoping a bit of relief from the truss rod will help this, without having to raise the bridge saddle with a shim. Even the lighest fingerpicking produces buzz at frets 2&3. Not good. Not at this price, that is for sure.

A concert hall body will not deliver that big boomy bottom end of a dreadnaught. But there still should be a rich warmth to the mids and low mids. This guitar is just "hollow." Actually, it is strikingly similar to my cheapy novelty Dean Flying V acoustic - which is a cool looking piece of yuck, that I string high-tension Nashville tuning, and use as a sort of tenor accompaniment, because of the poor overall sound. As a comparison, I went to a local music store yesterday to play the Epiphone Pro-1, which sounded better and more balanced, at 1/4 the cost. ...sigh

        Comments about Seagull Entourage Rustic Concert Hall Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I bought my first Seagull years ago, another Entourage Rustic model, intending for it to be my cheap "beater" guitar. Instead, it quickly became my backup stage instrument, second only to my all-solid Martin dread. Since then I've owned much more expensive Seagulls (Performer CW, Maritime SWS Rosewood), but I'm still always impressed by the bang for the buck Entourage Rustic models give.

        This one is no exception to that. It is, however, a bit of an exception to one of the key features on some other Entourage Rustic models: the top is solid spruce, rather than solid cedar. It fits this body size very well, giving you a sweet, balanced tone. I was concerned it might lack low end compared to its cedar-topped counterpart, but it turned out to be the perfect top wood for this model. It's an exceptional fingerstyle guitar, which is essentially what this size instrument is built for. Every note from the lows to the highs is clear and articulate; nothing overpowers. The 1.72" nut width also lends itself to fingerstyle better than some other guitars with 1 11/16" nut widths. Just enough extra string spacing.

        One other use this guitar is particularly well suited to is recording -- again, because of the balance and no part of the tonal spectrum overpowering the rest. You won't find yourself having to work the EQ nearly as much as with a larger guitar, and even less than some comparable size guitars.

        Even though this is a low end model, it's handmade by the awesome luthiers who make all the models I've owned, and it shows. The attention to detail is great, with every joint looking flawless, the frets perfect, the binding and finish top-notch. If I had to pick on one small thing, maybe they should have shaved a little material off the saddle since there is a pickup underneath it. The action is still very playable, but I'd prefer it a hair lower.

        Overall, I doubt you'll find anything better, or even as good, for the money.

                Comments about Seagull Entourage Rustic Concert Hall Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                I would rate this guitar 4.5 if I could. I only reduced it from 5 because while the instrument is carefully constructed and quite beautiful to look at, the binding on the back behind the heel of the neck does not meet (I've seen this on 2 out of 2). It's a small thing that seems easy to remedy at the factory.

                Flatpicking: Someone recently commented this guitar sounds tinny. My experience is that if you use a light pick, it will sound somewhat tinny. Using a medium pick, it sounds fabulous and is very well balanced across all strings. Using a heavy pick makes it sound darker. Of course, using different strings will also affect the tone. Comparing this to my larger Yamaha FS830, which is in roughly the same class, the Yamaha is louder (as expected from the size) and brighter. Also, as expected, the bass response of the 6th string is better on Yamaha (again, it's larger). The Seagull, however, projects much more clarity of the notes when strumming. I don't know how to describe it except that, in comparison, the Yamaha seems muddy and indistinct (and I love that Yamaha).

                Fingerpicking: This size is often preferred by fingerpickers and the sound of this guitar is warm and pleasing when fingerpicked.

                Plugged in: This guitar really comes alive when plugged in - and no one could accuse it of being tinny then, no matter the pick. It has plenty of volume for a small to medium size venue, with a great acoustic tone. It is also incredibly light, With a gig bag, you won't even know you're carrying it around.

                After looking at many guitars, I bought this one for my mother and she loves it! It is exactly what she needs in a guitar.

                I wanted a smaller bodied guitar because my Dreadnaught is uncomfortable after having shoulder surgery. Looking and trying Parlor guitars I found most have necks that are too wide for me. This guitar has a small, (but not tiny) comfortable body along with a comfortable neck. Sounds pretty good, hopefully, it will get better with age. It's well made, nice setup, built in pickup sounds as good as any.
                Downsides? Dull finish, but should age well. Very plain for the price.

                  No better bang for your buck. Received the Seagull packed really well in the shipping box. The guitar was tuned down during shipping which is a good idea. Just as the description said and more. Great great sound from a concert size guitar. About 8 years ago I became a Seagull lover of style sound and playabilty. Ok said so long to Martin and Taylor. This is now my 5th Seagull and from stage to studio, the wholeness and good low end has become my signature sound.

I am a 20+ year guitar player and have played many different acoustics. This little guitar is a "sitting on the back porch" type of guitar that i know i will get a lot of fun out of.

Even the lighest fingerpicking produces buzz at frets 2&3. Not good. Not at this price, that is for sure.

                      A concert hall body will not deliver that big boomy bottom end of a dreadnaught. But there still should be a rich warmth to the mids and low mids. This guitar is just "hollow." Actually, it is strikingly similar to my cheapy novelty Dean Flying V acoustic - which is a cool looking piece of yuck, that I string high-tension Nashville tuning, and use as a sort of tenor accompaniment, because of the poor overall sound. As a comparison, I went to a local music store yesterday to play the Epiphone Pro-1, which sounded better and more balanced, at 1/4 the cost. ...sigh

                          This is my second Seagull. Great guitars for the money.

                              I have 2 entourage guitars. Because ofthe open pore cedar finish, the top will chip and deny easily, but I like the character develops.

                                It is a nice lightweight guitar. Its sound is a little brighter than other Seagulls I own but the trade-off is worth it because of it's slender smaller size. Can be played acoustically in small to mid-size rooms but the electronics allow it to be plugged in and played to a much larger crowd. Over-all I am very satisfied with the purchase.

                                I play a wide variety of acoustic music and like different types of acoustics. That said, this model can cover anything I'm in the mood to play. Unbelievable quality for the money spent! I have owned quite a few higher priced guitars over the years and this Seagull comes amazingly close in playability and tone. It's the second one I've ordered in a week. First was a dreadnought size walnut model.
