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 Excursion Walnut SG'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 Excursion Walnut SG 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 Excursion Walnut SG'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 Excursion Walnut SG'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

Seagull's Excursion series guitars are handcrafted in Princeville, Quebec. 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 harvested from Canadian forests in an eco-friendly manner. You'll love the attention to detail, the quality tonewoods, and Seagull's commitment to make the best guitar possible. Grab a Seagull Excursion Walnut SG and experience the difference.

I'm impressed

I have been playing for over 40 yrs.some hard times forced me to part with my guitar's ( it happens ) I heard about seagulls from a few friends and got this one ...what can I say..for the price I'm blown away with the sound this guitar has right out of the box..I know laminate guitar's are considered low end but seriously this guitar sounds and plays better than some guitar's I paid triple the money for...still want my Martin back but I'm very pleased with this one until I win the lottery lol.

What a pleasant surprise!

I bought this guitar on a recommendation from a friend and he wasn't kidding. This instrument arrived in impeccable condition. The finish is perfect. It is not a high-gloss instrument, but rather a satiny appearance that makes that walnut back simply glow, right from the box. The action was terrific in all frets and you could tell there is considerable craftsmanship involved in producing this guitar. The sound is awesome. The walnut gives this guitar a deep, warm low, while the spruce top accentuates the bright tones. I have played professionally, but now I'm a campfire player with several other acoustics, but this one is going to be the one I reach for first. It reminds me of a Martin D-18 I once had. My only reason for not giving it a perfect score is because it doesn't have a strap button on the front side. Otherwise, this guitar is a wonderful way to play and entertain.
