Seagull also loaded this guitar with Quantum I electronics for great tone when you need to plug in.

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 QI'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 QI 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 QI'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 QI'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 QI and experience the difference.

Seagull SWS

I'm retired, age 70 and been playing since 9 years old. I bought it new, and immediately took it to my luthier and had them set it up for 11s and low action. My Seagull SWS is now my favorite acoustic, sitting right next to my family room chair. I purchased the jumbo cut-away; not sure if cut-away is offered anymore. The sound is strong and solid-mahogany clean. the action quality is excellent and they really paid attention to detail when they made it. Frets are perfectly level and no sharp edges. The Godin electronic elements are exquisitely simple and sound great at all settings. I love the on-board tuner that works even when not plugged in. I have 2 US made Martins, a D28 and an early 1993 D1, they, of course, are good for what they are, but my Seagull is my go-to acoustic that I keep handy right next to my chair. The way it's set up, it's fast and responsive. Plays like a good electric. You can't go wrong for the price - but remember we're talking the SWS line here... I don't know anything about any of the other Seagull guitars.
Music background: Playing for 61 years and thru the grace of a God, still counting!

If you havent tried a segaull do it now

All solid wood at a fraction of the cost of those other popular brands. This is the fourth seagull i have owned, and if you havent tried a seagull then do it. Read their website and you will understand how they manage a quality guitar at a lower price. Ive been playing for a while, and im no expert, but I can hear the difference the solid wood guitar adds. Unplugged or amped this guitar sounds great. It plays amazing. The semi gloss finish is something i really like too. And an onboard tuner with a separte battery compartment for the preamp, no removing strings to change the battery! Its an all around winner. And btw it fits in the epiphone edred case , which i recommend as its a great case.
