It has great sound and is really a beautiful guitar.
Jack Diddly
I think this is a good guitar and when you think that something that might sound better would cost three to four times as much it is a great guitar for the value.
I have played some of the highest quality guitars around such as Taylor, Martin, Ibanez, Gibson, and Fender, so why do I highly recommend the Seagull S6 acoustic?

I bought a Seagull in 1995, with my first paycheck after graduating from college, at a small guitar store in Petaluma. It might be the best $400 I've ever spent.

Over the years I've become a much better guitar player, but I haven't outgrown this instrument, and I doubt I ever will. It is a fantastic guitar that plays beautifully and sounds better every year. It's very easy to play, very reliable (haven't needed to adjust the truss once) and did I mention it sounds great?

It's beautiful, too, with a wonderful light finish. Most guitars in this price range are cheaply made in asia and heavily lacquered. Not this baby!

If something ever happened to it I'd skip right past the Taylors and Martins and buy another one of these without a second thought. I brought it to a party recently, and met someone who asked to borrow it. I let him, and he strummed it for a few minutes. Turns out he's one of those guys who owns half a dozen guitars, and when he handed it back to me he said, "Don't ever sell this guitar, unless it's to me."

The only guitar I've ever played where I felt like I was clearly handling a better guitar was a Paul Reed Smith hollowbody which runs for over three grand.

You could spend a lot more money and not get an instrument this nice. For $400, it's hard to imagine that you'll do better.

After 42 years of playing unsatisfying guitars, I did some research and spent a lot of time at all the local Guitar Centers, Sam Ash stores and a number of indie stores like McCabes in Santa Monica. I played everything I could get my hands on that had at least a solid top.

So when my husband wanted to get me a guitar for my birthday, I chose the Seagull Original S6 because it sounds great, feels good and plays so very well. The sound actually stands up pretty well even when played right after all-solid more expensive guitars. After a setup and putting on some extra light strings, it's hard to believe it has laminate back and sides - my S6 sings! And it sounds great finger picking or strummed.

Details - the nut is 1.8 inches, which is very nice for finger picking. This is a short scale guitar but not a 3/4 size, and the body hits at the 14th fret. The top is solid cedar, sides and back are laminated wild cherry. Build quality of every one I've seen (and I've seen a lot of them) is very good, and the semi-gloss finish looks and feels smooth. It's got well-finished frets and fretboard and a bright sound with lots of sustain - if you're like me and didn't need that much brightness, try phosphor bronze strings.

If you're a beginning to intermediate player or are looking for a second guitar, I cannot recommend the Seagull Original S6 enough!

While I have the S6 Slim, the only difference between the two guitars is the neck width. On the slim it is 1.72" while on the original, it is 1.80". I've played both and they sound and essentially look the same, so I wanted to post my review from the slim onto here as well. Again the only difference is neck width. If you have smaller hands check out the Slim model.

I did not buy this guitar from Amazon, but from a local guitar shop. I was looking for a "budget" guitar in the <500$ price range and played every guitar the shop had over the course of 3 days. The Seagull S6 Slim (and S6, for that matter) stood out without any comparison.

As suggested in the title, I have been playing this guitar for 7 years (I finally bought an "intermediate" guitar just a month ago). I have never had guitar lessons, and I think that truly demonstrates how beautiful this guitar is and sounds. It held my interest through all of the self teaching and I always came back to it. I only started thinking about getting a new guitar a few months ago, and it was simply because I needed something with a brighter sound. I have never gotten sick of this guitar and play it daily, even with my new guitar.

First things first, though. If you haven't actually heard the guitar in person or at least youtube videos, do that before looking at reviews. This holds true with any guitar, or instrument really. Everyone perceives sounds differently and the perfect tone quality for me may not be the same as for you. If you have and you're looking for reason to buy the guitar, keep reading.

Second, guitars of the same model do not all sound the same.

I'm a guitar newbie (been playing 3 months) and before starting I did some on-line research on acoustic guitars to determine what would be the best beginner guitar. Every list I found rated this one in the top five, even though it was more than twice the price of all the rest of them. Convinced, I found a used one on Craigslist for $200.

Since it was my first guitar I had nothing to compare it to, but my first impression was good. It seemed well built, reasonably attractive and had good sound. A little bulky, but I got used to it. I was happy.

Then I took an adult guitar course at my local community college and saw what the other students were bringing in. Ibanez's, Yamahas, Epiphones, Fenders, even a Toys-R-Us Hannah Montana (???). It was then I realized how much of a superior instrument the Seagull is! Every one of them looked and felt cheap compared to mine. Wavy sound boards, thick glossy finish, crude bracing, ill-fitting inlays, etc. One guy had a fancy six-hundred dollar Ibanez electric-acoustic cutaway in stunning flame maple finish and he allowed me to play it for a bit. It sounded horrible, like stretching fishing line over a tin can!

So in conclusion: you get what you pay for. And in the case of the Seagull, you get a quite a bit more of what really counts. It's a no-frills guitar with very little thought given to unnecessary adornments. It's designed to be played, not displayed on a wall. If you're serious about guitaring, stop reading this and go get one.
