With its comfortable playing through body neck and flat top this acoustic mandolin is unique. The Seagull S8 Mandolin EQ in Sunburst has been crafted here in Canada. Brilliant acoustic tones are delivered thanks to a solid sitka spruce top. This has been paired up with Canadian wild cherry for the back and sides and finished with a semi gloss custom polished finish. The S8 gets a desirable upgrade in 2017 with the inclusion of a Seagull proprietary preamp, with volume and tone controls conveniently placed on the mandolin's top. The Sunburst Seagull S8 Mandolin EQ is a beautifully crafted instrument with its own unique design.

Haven't had any problems with this mandolin at all. Stays in tune better than any other I have. Plugged into a good amp the sounds are amazing and remember this mandolin doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

I am a professional musician & busker in these cold Canadian climates. This Canadian made mandolin is for this climate.... It stays in tune better and even when I "hammer" on it I break way less strings with this fixed bridge rather than the separated bridge on the old a and f styles... It's kind of a mixture of old mandolin & some new tech.

Excellent quality for its price. Very good for gigging, good electronics. Sounds good acoustically too. Comes in a nice gig bag but there is hardly any space for anything in the pouch. A good alternative to the Godin A8 if your budget is tight.

I've owned this mandolin for a few weeks now, and like it a lot! It doesn't quite have the sound of my "F" style J.Bovier mando - but that one doesn't have a preamp with volume and tone controls located on the sound board. Haven't plugged in to an acoustic amp as yet, but it makes great sound out of a VOX tube amp that I have. I watched a local professional musician chew on one of these Seagull S8 mando's, and it convinced me that it would work just fine for my needs. And, I don't feel bad taking it anywhere. Plus, it's Canadian made. Bought the Seagull gig bag, and it's worth the additional bucks. Seagull doesn't sell a hard case for it.
