Seagull's quest for tone gives you a better playing and sounding guitar

Robert Godin, owner of Seagull Guitars, has never been satisfied with good enough. His tireless search for the better guitar has created quite a few innovations that go into every guitar model that Seagull makes. Every Maritime SWS Semi-gloss's top is pressure tested for rigidity and stiffness to ensure maximum harmonic vibration. The unique compound-curved top adds structural integrity to the guitar and allows for thinner bracing. Take it from the Sweetwater crew - the Maritime SWS Semi-gloss will give you years of great performance.

Innovative neck construction and mounting delivers killer playability and tone

The attention and care given to each Seagull shows in their looks, playability, and tone. Seagull has also taken extra care to ensure that the Maritime SWS Semi-gloss's neck helps create an amazing guitar experience. An acoustic guitar's neck is more than just a fretboard used for playing, it also creates the guitar's tone. Seagull's Integrated Set Neck gives your guitar the sound you want and the stability you need in a performing guitar. This system provides stable and consistent action that also reduces warping and twisting. Thanks to this integrated system, the Maritime SWS Semi-gloss's neck pitch is perfectly set. If it's too far forward the instrument will sound muddy, or if it's too far back the guitar will sound tinny. Seagull's design assures optimized sound and playability with these and other innovations found in the entire Seagull line.

Handcrafted in Canada for more than a quarter of a century

For over 25 years, Seagull guitars have been handcrafted in the small village of La Patrie in eastern Quebec. About half of the population works creating these exquisite guitars. All of the guitars in the Seagull line are made in Canada from the S6 Original models to the Maritime models to the top-of-the-line Artist series guitar. Most of the tonewoods are also harvested from Canadian forests. You'll love the attention to detail, the quality tonewoods, and Seagull's commitment to make the best guitar possible. Grab a Seagull Maritime SWS Semi-gloss and experience the difference.

Pleasantly surprised

I was looking for a guitar to give my daughter and this looked promising but I was not impressed by the headstock design. I guess I was used to the typical Martin style and this looked unnatural. However , the reason for the design made sense so I decided to take a chance. WOW! This guitar is amazing. It is easy to play and really does doing great. The fit and finish are exceptional. I guess I'll have to order another for my daughter because this is now my "go-to" guitar

Very Happy

After years of plunking around and so-so guitars I decided to give it a more serious go, and get a really good guitar. Looked at a few but the Maritime was it. First the neck. At 6'3" with big hands the wider neck (180mm nut) is a game changer. A "wow" moment for me. Also the shape of the neck, just feels great. The tone is interesting, I would describe it as very even and vibrant. They say the light finish adds to the reverberation and It appears to be true. It rings, in a good way. It is not big bass sounding but not thin or tinny either. Tone seems versatile. Nice and warm with a thumb strum and sings out with pick and nails. Always in the ear of the beholder but I like it. Also, great playability, smooth. I wouldn't buy a guitar if it wasn't pretty and it is. Again it's a bit different. I wasn't sure about the semi-gloss finish at first and now I find it beautiful. The headstock, well again, now I really like it. And it works just fine. I reserved half a star only because nothing's perfect and I'm sure there is some better guitar ($$$!). But whatever, I love this thing.
