I've played many guitars over the years and this is the one I always find myself going back to.
Whether your a seasoned player or a beginner this is a must in your collection.
Add to your cart and check out. I promise you will not regret this purchase!
Let me go over some of my initial concerns and hopefully I can put your mind at ease. (Please feel free to look up a more thorough explanation as I am just trying to give you a rough idea of my findings.)
At first, the unique head shape scared me away before I learnt the purpose behind it. The goal is to keep the strings laying as flat as possible for a higher sound quality, less stress to the neck of your guitar, and keeps you in tune way longer.
Second concern was the 2mm wider fret board. I had only ever played with the standard width before. I am a woman with hands on the smaller side. It only took me about 5 minutes if playing to feel like I was born with this guitar on my hands. The wider fret has never been an issue.
Lastly, I learned that the back and sides are made up of laminate, which I've had a bad experience from owning a Little Martin. The story with the Martin is that basically the back and sides were too ridged (being made up of a compressed partical board laminate) which caused the face to crack. This is not an issue with solid wood guitar bodies because the entire body will flex with the humidity.
Since I was concerned about this possibly happening with the Seagull I did plenty of research and discovered that Seagull actually use 3 strips of solid wood glue together, which is a type of laminate but absolutely no use of partical board. This means that while the structure will be more reinforced, it is not so ridged that it won't breathe with the face of the guitar. It also maintains more integrity in the sound quality and allows a punchier sound which to me sounds rich and crisp at the same time.
Near the end of my research I was actually SEARCHING for ANY negative reviews and I don't think I was able to find even one!
If you buy one acoustic guitar in your life, make it a Seagull!
Aside from that, it's an absolutely incredible guitar for the money. I could not believe how good it sounded when I first played it. The craftsmanship is something you'd expect from a $1500 guitar and getting a double action truss rod at $400 really makes this an amazing value. Unless something changes I plan to stick with Seagull guitars for a really long time.
The only downsides of this guitar is the cedar top is more prone to scratching than other woods. This means you might get more pick scars than other guitars. In my opinion, though, guitars are meant to be played and I'm wholly unconcerned with a worn look; means you love your guitar.
I have never found a guitar that plays this well and sounds this good at this price point and I highly and wholly recommend this guitar.
