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 S6 Original 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 Seagull S6 Original 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 S6 Original 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 S6 Original 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 S6 Original QI and experience the difference.

Seagull S6

Service was very good and got it in two days, Love this guitar. Couldn't be happier and want to Thank Ben Porter for helping me out on this buy..

I Love My Seagull S6 Original QI

I did a lot of research before this purchase, and I must say that the quality if this guitar is comparable to guitars costing 2 or 3 times as much. (watch the YouTube Godin factory tour) The acoustic sound quality is superb, and the electronics are fantastic. Build quality is very tight, I looked for any imperfections and could find none. I ran the Q1 out to a ToneBone preamp and I had nothing but compliments form all the listeners, I was very impressed with the piezo pickup sound. I do have to say that love the slightly wider neck profile , but I have larger hands and after playing for I few minutes, it was perfect for me. ( others with small hands may not like the wider profile). The action and playability are the best of any acoustic I have owned or played. Yes this includes Martins and Taylors. Last my review would not be complete with out mentioning Sweatwater and they unbelievable support and my own personal Sales Rep Alden Debee. He is always available with great advise and I never worry about a purchase from Sweatwater. If you have not played a Seagull S6 do yourself a favor and give on a try , I know you will Love it !!!

The Best Sounding Guitar under $1200.00

I am blown away by the rich tone and playability. I was on the fence between this and a Taylor Big Baby, I made the right choice. The only one that was close to the S6 was the $1200.00 Martin. The wood is top grade and the electronics are easy to use.. this will be a guitar you will keep forever.

seagull believer

I carry this in my big rig when i,am on the road,the durability of this guitar goes way,way,way beyond what i expected.its subjected to below 0 temps and 100 plus temps while in my truck not to mention bouncing around and tossed around.i take it out of the case and its either in tune or just hair off,i have friend with a $800+ guitar and this sounds better,the tone controls actually give you a wide range of tone control not the cheap limited range models,plugged in it has a great sound,after 7 years all works fine.if the day it ever breaks you can bet i wont bother looking any where else.

Not for me...

This guitar was VERY unplayable when we got it. The neck was visibly forward, and there was a slight crack on the left top in the waist area of the guitar. I figure that it got too, dry, as it was an older model with the old logo and tuners. I have played for 30 years and could not play this guitar. I was giving it to my son, but instead, returned it and got him a Taylor 110E.Sweetwater was very good at assisting the return. Tyler is my guy, and he had the return labels to me ASAP.These guitars are traditionally good. I have never played one this bad. Usually, you can play their 12 string guitars as easy as electrics. I can say that the back wood and finish is different from older ones that I have played. I don't know if they changed their method of build, or what.
