The Seagull S6 Original Acoustic Guitar is a popular and highly regarded instrument. Musicians that purchase the Seagull 6 tend to be very happy with it. It is an entry-level, affordable guitar with a nice, warm tone. It is also attractive and easy to tune.
The Seagull S6 Original Acoustic guitar is a great starter instrument but it doesn’t necessarily play like one. The guitar’s sound is quite nice as is its feel. The hand finished neck, genuine lacquer finish and cedar top makes for an attractive combination, while the domestic cherry back and sides gives the guitar a sound and tone that is unique.
Stable tuning on the guitar is quick thanks to the machine heads which are specially aligned. The Seagull S6 has a silver leaf maple neck, accented by a rosewood fretboard and a shorter scale.
Seagull guitars are known for their great tone. The Seagull S6 isn’t any different. The cherry sides and cedar top affects the guitar’s tone. Its sound is a subsequent mix of mellowness, courtesy of the guitar’s mahogany and the ring is bright, thanks to the maple, wild cherry. The sound is one that is both warm and full. Some people describe it as a little bit dark.
One of the best things about the Seagull S6 is the ease in which the guitar can be tuned and stay tuned. When tuning most guitars, it is often necessary to make additional adjustments. This is because the neck of most guitars will move. This will, subsequently, alter the string’s tension. Balancing the neck, along with tuning the strings, then becomes necessary. The Seagull S6 has a tapered headstock, which cuts down on the movement or twisting of the neck.
Subsequently, it is not necessary to re-tune the strings after they have already been tuned. Once the guitar is tuned, it stays that way, at least for a longer amount of time than most guitars.
Another notable feature of the Seagull S6 is the double-action truss rod, which helps control the over and under bowing of the guitar’s neck, effectively reinforcing it. This cuts down on the amount of re-tuning needed when the guitar is played or passed around by different players.
All-in-all, the Seagull S6 is an excellent guitar. It is made of quality materials, sounds great, is easy to tune and better able to stand-up to normal wear and tear. We highly recommend it.
