Just bought this guitar today and I'm loving it. I was blown away by the feel of the neck and frets. The look of the guitar is fantastic. It is a smaller bodied guitar than a dreadnought though and doesn't have the same bass response. When the say "more midrange focused" translate that into "less bass." So don't expect it to boom like a dreadnought. At first I thought I wouldn't keep it, but now I'm sold on it. For what it is though, it's great. The smaller body is very comfortable. I'm actually quite enjoying the focused sound. I think I will try heavier guage strings though. It should take it no problem as the build is outstanding. I watched the factory tour video and I'm glad I did. You can see how exacting they are in the build. So much of it is automated by machine (run by a human of course) and that's how they do it with such precision for such good value. Combine that with good access to quality wood and Godin is a genius! I don't expect it to compete with $1500 guitars but I don't think I'll outgrow this one. I put the value at 4 but I doubt I'd put any guitar above that. I expect this thing to survive like a tank (although I'm not going to test that). I've seen some very poor QC on Fender or Gibsons and other "factory guitars" but I can't find one thing wrong and after seeing that factory tour I know why. Godin philosophy is not make the quotas but use the best process possible to do it quickly and well and to exacting standards every time. Bravo! The neck feels a bit wider at the nut, which I like because I have the big fat stumps of a bass man not the dainty digits of the guitar princess. The tuner works quite well and is convenient. I haven't experimented with the electronics much. I expect nowadays with hybrid mic systems you can get a better sound so I put features at 4. I wish they put fret markers above the 12th fret! Come on Godin! The tric case is great. Last thing: Long and McQuade are great (especially on 58th). They have an easy return policy and are very friendly and helpful. Always my #1 choice. They even know me by name. I mean full name to look me up in the system when I buy something. Now that is great service!

This is my second Seagull Guitar the first being a S6 Slim. The sound is clean and crisp with plenty of sustain. I recommend switching the factory strings ( to Elixir Nanowebs) and getting a setup as the action was a little high. The built in tuner is simple and accurate. It projects very well plugged in or straight up. I also opted for the TRIC case which I highly recommend as it is almost weightless and offers superior protection. This guitar is a great value and should be considered if you price point is under $1000. Overall a great choice.

I am on the second one of these. The first was replaced on warranty and the second one is exhibiting the same problem- neck instability. It seems that every time I take the guitar out of the tric case, the neck has changed and the action is too high. Very annoying and I am careful about temperature and humidity. When the neck has just been set up I love the tone and playability of the guitar. It just won't stay in that playable condition very long.

Great sounding guitar. I've tried a bunch in this price range but nothing else touches the rich sound and sustain this guitar puts out. Bought one today. Love it.

I have owned this guitar for over 1 yr. now and it just sounds better all the time. Craftsmanship does not get any better than this or any Godin Family Guitar, they take No Shortcuts. This is one beautiful looking guitar. This guitar is as good in every aspect and better than a Gibson J 45 Standard, and at 1/4 the price. Try one, do your own comparison. I love everything about this Seagull.
