Seagull Coastline Grand Parlour QI Guitar – Compact Guitar with a Big Sound

The Seagull Coastline Series Grand Parlour QI is an acoustic-electric guitar that's great fun to play. The Coastline Grand Parlour produces a surprisingly big sound. Using computer modeling to optimize the internal bracing and soundhole design, this Seagull guitar represents an intriguing mix of old and new. The Coastline Grand is beautifully complemented with the addition of the optional Quantum I EQ system.

Great for portability


Coastline Cedar Grand

Seagull Coastline guitars are outstanding values. The back and sides of Coastline series guitars are made from a 3-layer lamination of wild cherry wood. With a sound that lands somewhere between the mellow tone of a mahogany guitar and the bright sound of maple, wild cherry has proven itself to be an excellent tone wood. Grown locally, wild cherry is also a choice for guitar construction. Coastline series guitars feature very smooth necks made from silver leaf maple.

Coastline Series

The guitars that make up the Seagull Coastline series represent one of the world's outstanding values in acoustic guitars. The back and sides of the Coastline series models are made from a three-layer lamination of Wild Cherry wood. With a sound that lands somewhere between the mellow tone of a Mahogany guitar and the bright sound of Maple, Wild Cherry has proven itself to be an excellent tone wood. Grown locally, Wild Cherry is also a choice. Coastline series guitars feature very smooth necks made from Silver Leaf Maple.

The Compound Curve Top

The guitar top is the part of the instrument that most affects the sound. It is also the most delicate part of any high quality acoustic guitar. The grade and thickness of the wood used (solid spruce), as well as the bracing structure, have a huge impact on the instrument's sound. The idea of applying an arch or a curve to the top is appealing because the added strength of an arched top should allow for the use of a thinner and more lightly braced top. While this is true, there remains a trade-off in applying a curve to the entire top. The most active part of the top is the area centered on the bridge. Applying a curve to this part of the top restricts movement resulting in a loss of dynamic range. On the other hand, the area of the top above the sound hole moves minimally but is problematic because it tends to sink if the guitar dries out even slightly. This tendency is also encouraged by downward pressure from the fingerboard resting on top of it. The solution is a top that has a compound curve.

In the Seagull Performer's design the top is arched slightly in the area above the sound hole and levels out in the area around the bridge. The compound curve top produces excellent stability in the upper part of the guitar top and the power and projection made possible by leaving the top flat below the sound hole flat. With the weak area above the sound hole stabilized, it is possible to make the rest of the top even more active with a new bracing design that allows unprecedented control over the top vibration. The bracing for the Seagull Performer Cutaway Flame Maple High-Gloss QI Guitar is quarter-sawn spruce, scalloped and carved to conform exactly to the curvature of the tops.

Features Godin QI electronics


Godin QI Electronics

The Godin EPM Quantum acoustic guitar system is simple in design and outstanding in performance. This single source system features an exceptionally responsive saddle transducer carefully matched to side mount electronics with rotary volume, bass, and treble controls. The electronics and controls are packaged in a small and easy to use format complemented with a finely crafted pewter cover plate. In combination with the transducer, the EQ control range and frequency content have been specifically contoured to provide a very rich and full sound reproduction resulting in performance seen only in far more complex systems.

A History of Quality

In 1982 Robert Godin and a few friends produced the first Seagull guitars in the Village of LaPatrie, Quebec. The concept for the Seagull guitar was to take the essential components of the best hand-crafted guitars (such as solid tops and beautiful finishes) and build these features into guitars that could be priced within the reach of working musicians. Of course there is much more to a great guitar than a solid top with a special finish, so we produced this illustrated guide to help you gain some understanding of the basic elements of a great sounding acoustic guitar.

The Seagull story wouldn't be complete without mentioning La Patrie. La Patrie is a small village in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. This is where the first Seagulls were made in the early eighties. Today, La Patrie has a population of about 475 and about half of these people are guitar builders. These folks take a great deal of pride in the guitars they build. Pick one up and you'll see why.

I was just given one of these guitars for my birthday last month, and I was really surprised about this guitar between what I was told about it (the guy who gave it to me described it as a 3/4-size Seagull, so I didn't think much of it before I got it), and what it actually sounded like playing it.

The cedar/cherry combination made for a very warm, full sound, brightened up with a set of Elixir Light Nanoweb 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings, it was perfect.

I love having an on-board tuner with the Quantum I electronic controls, and hooked up to the setup I use: Elixir 92120 Elixir Cable Straight - Straight 20' with a Bose sound system (The Bose system actually belongs to the guy who gave me this guitar), the amplification sounds very clear, very natural.

I have played on quite a few Seagulls including this one, and I really believe this particular model, even for a guitar this size, lives up to the name.
