Unique compound-curve spruce top

Robert Godin, owner of Seagull Guitars, has never been satisfied with good enough. His tireless search for a better guitar has created quite a few innovations that are found in every Seagull guitar. For instance, the S6 Original QI's top is pressure tested for rigidity and stiffness to ensure maximum harmonic vibration. Its unique compound-curved construction adds structural integrity to the guitar and allows for thinner bracing. This method frees the spruce top to vibrate more freely delivering the most harmonically rich acoustic tone possible.

Innovative neck construction

Seagull has taken extra care to ensure that the S6 Original QI's neck offers and effortless playing experience. Their proprietary Integrated Set Neck design takes advantage of tennon and dovetail-syle designs to provide 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. This Seagull design assures optimized sound and playability with great consistency from guitar to guitar.

Handcrafted in Canada

All of the guitars in the Seagull line, from this S6 Original model to the top-of-the-line Artist series guitars have been handcrafted in the small village of La Patrie in eastern Quebec, Canada for over 25 years. About half of the population of this small town works creating these exquisite guitars. 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 that this affords them. Grab a Seagull S6 Original QI and experience the difference.

Love it

I am an older player about six months in at 56 years of age. My aspirations are simple, which is to become a serviceable campfire guitar players. I got a good start on a lower end Yamaha and had made the decision to move up to a nicer guitar. When I started looking, I honestly had not even heard of Seagull...I was looking at an Ovation or lower end Martin or Taylor...really wanted in the $400-&700 range. I am never going to be a guy who has a guitar room..the one I decided on was going to be probably the guitar I would settle in with for for the long run. I ended up with the Seagull Burnt Umber and couldn't be happier It has a very rich tone, it's easy to play, and it's a beautiful guitar. Well worth a look. For my money, the best guitar in this range for someone who wants a nice guitar at a moderate price. I have let a few friends who are experienced players take a look at it for their opinion and they were amazed at the action comparing it to guitars that cost twice as much.

Seagull S6 Original Q1T

Looking for easy playability, clear tones and an affordable acoustic electric? Prepare to be satisfied in all aspects. This guitar is the most clear sounding guitar I own.(mind blown) Very easy to play and sounds like a dream plugged or unplugged. I will say I wish there were more options for versatility in the electronics but overall they are decent. I would tell anyone interested in getting a new acoustic electric to go seagull as I am absolutely thrilled with mine. Thanks again to the best sales engineer in the business Aaron Hoff for being so knowledgeable and easy to work with.

Seagull S6 Original

Great guitar for me. Love the way the neck fills my hand comfortably, how crisp the sound is, and the fact that you can plug it in and it sounds exactly the same. Just incredible. Only downside to it that I can find is I can't put it down.
