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 Performer Cutaway Flame Maple 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 Performer Cutaway Flame Maple QI acoustic 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 Performer Cutaway Flame Maple 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 Performer Cutaway Flame Maple 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 Performer Cutaway Flame Maple QI and experience the difference.

Seagull Performer Cutaway Flame Maple QI Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Pressure tested solid spruce top offers superior tone, projection, and response
  • Laminated flame maple back and sides deliver a detailed tone between warm mahogany and bright maple
  • Modified dreadnought body shape cuts unwanted boominess making it great for recording and live shows
  • Quantum I electronics deliver great plugged-in tone via an undersaddle pickup
  • Integrated set neck offers tuning and playing stability and eliminates twisting and warping
  • Tapered headstock gives you a straighter pull, better tuning, and less stress, especially when using altered tunings
  • Tusq nut and compensated saddle offer a sound similar to bone but with more harmonics
  • Thin, custom polished finish lets the guitar vibrate more freely
  • Dual-function truss rods assure the perfect neck alignment and relief
  • Handcrafted in Canada

Solid and clear

I play Steinberger graphites. Try this. Play a Rainsong and work back from there. Piano-like, crystal clear, and loud across the fretboard. All woodies will impart a certain character and sweetness-good, but that takes away from projection and eveness- bad. NOT the Perfomer. I played many alternatrives when looking for trad wood. This was at the top. Strum a chord and hear each note. Electronics sound fine. Others have commented on the quality workmanship. Go online and learn about the responsible company. Note that the strap button will require some modification or searching around for a strap to fit over the larger size. I got a lock-it strap from Sweetwater, widened the leather hole a little,and it works fine.

Superb customer service and quality product

Matt and his staff took exceptional care of my order and were very personable in the old fashioned way that I like. If I were their boss, I'd give them all a raise. Guitar arrived actually earlier than projected in perfect condition, with all the extras packaged properly. The candy was a nice personal touch- haven't had a Bit- O - Honey since I was a kid!

Canadian Quality is Amazing

I used to work for Larrivee Guitars in Canada, so I know guitar quality when I see it. This Seagull is a very well made guitar, regardless of the price range. When Martins are being sold for more money and don't even have real wood on the backs and sides, this real Maple laminate is definitely worth it!! The guitar looks and sounds amazing! The fretwork and setup was perfect. You really can't go wrong with Seagull guitars. They are quality craftsmanship straight from Canada.
