Great guitar, could easily be a $1500 guitar. Plays beautifully, clear sound, great bass and mids, easy to strum, and the wide nut made it easy to practice moving from chord to chord for me. I have this S6 and a Taylor 214ce, they play much differently, I generally play the Taylor these days, but every time I pick up the Seagull from the stand and bang on it, I’m always surprised and wish I played it more. The fit and finish are top notch. The neck feels wonderful in my hand, the fingerboard is smooth and pleasantly easy to find the correct fret, and right out of the box the intonations were spot on. Love the strings it come from factory with as well. My brother is a professional musician, and only plays Godin family guitars, Norman and S&P specifically. He picked up my S6 yesterday and the look on his face was priceless, he played for about 2 hours straight and then he set it down, called his guitar rep and had one sent to his house. He had never played the cheaper of the models before, and couldn’t believe it. Buy one and keep it, and buy a case or gig bag ASAP. Only down side, be careful with the cedar top, I find it’s very soft, it shows scratches and marks very easily.

I really like the way this guitar plays and sounds. However I wouldn't buy ti again. The battery is inside the sound hole which is a terrible design. The strings need to be loosened right off to get at it. Since the battery wire is pretty delicate I've also had the wire break a couple times and had it sent away to be repaired. My other issue is that the finish started to go down hill after playing it once! I use light picks and don't hammer away and after owning it for a year the finish is all chipped up. Seagull said their warranty doesn't cover the finish, so I'm stuck with it. I've had a Taylor 314CE for 8 years and it still looks and plays amazing (But it also cost a lot more). I say save your money and buy a better guitar

I did a lot of research before buying my second acoustic guitar after my "beginner" cheap Denver guitar. This one had specifically caught my eye because of how beautiful it is and the fact that it is Canadian made! Mine looks different from these pictures, with the back being a nice light oak colour. These two things, as well as being a price that doesn't break the bank, made me want to buy this guitar. I'm glad a did (very noticeable upgrade from my Denver guitar). The sound of this guitar is amazing. It's a dreadnought so the sound really resonates and sounds very rich. I could play this thing for hours and forget how fast time is passing by. Anytime I'm stressed, this guitar soothes me. Anytime I'm sad, this guitar produces beautiful sad sounds. When I'm happy, this thing can get loud and fill the entire house with major chords! I've had this guitar for 3 years now and it sounds better than before! There are two problems that you may have with this guitar. Since it is dreadnought style, it may be big for some people. When I first got this guitar, it was hard to get used to the big body (the sound was so amazing that I kept playing anyway), but you do get used to it. One thing I did not know, the the biggest and only flaw in this guitar is the neck width. It is wider than the standard. I have small hands so this could make it somewhat less comfortable playing this guitar, and may effect my play-ability also. Again, I got used to it. The wider neck is great for bigger hands / chubbier fingers since there's a little bit more space between strings. Overall, if the size of this guitar doesn't bother you, and your budget is in this range, I very strongly recommend this guitar.

If you think they sound good new, wait a couple of years till they open up. I have a 2001 S6 Cedar that just sounds and feels amazing. No need to spend $2000 on a guitar. The sound will tell you what you need to know.

I'm in love with this guitar. If they sold it for $2000 everyone would lose their mind over how good it is, but this is no beginner's guitar. It sounds, looks, feels amazing. Only knock against it is it's lack of electronics and it you need an acoustic strap if standing up because it only has one strap button(?). Not a problem if you dont care about those things. For this money, Martin will give you a plastic guitar made in China, fender will give you kindling with strings and taylor doesn't do business for less than 1000. Buy it, you wont regret it. Made in Canada!

I bought my S6 from L&G in Oshawa 8 years ago, it is a spruce top made in 2008.This guitar sounds better every time I play it, the sound is fantastic. I have played Gibsons, Martin's etc and I would not let go of my S6 I just love it. My son has dibs on it when I am gone. So get a great sounding guitar and buy a Seagull S6.

I tried all the acoustics in L&M 's St john's store and chose the S-6 original as the best bang for the buck for me. Most all the seagull guitars had the same great feel and tone.With the slim neck it felt at home in my hands and kept me picking it up to play. I love this guitar and have had it for over a year now.
