Update: this guitar is such a joy to play! There's only been a day or two that I haven't played since I've owned it, I'm not sure what people mean when they say a guitar doesn't stay in tune, I check mine at the beginning of each practice session and it's always either right on or maybe one or two strings needs just a hair of an adjustment to be dead on, and I'm pretty hard on this thing learning strumming techniques, chords, timing and whatnot! Just couldn't be more pleased!
I have no regrets.
All of the positive reviews extolling the virtues of this excellent guitar model are spot on.
If you're in the market, and don't have a grand to spend on a new acoustic guitar, get this North American made gem.
You won't regret it.
This guitar is, imho, excellent for everyone from rank beginner to intermediate-advanced players.
Let me clarify: If you have no idea whether you'll still be plinking away after the first few hours, then by all means rent one for your first several lessons. That way, you can experience playing, possibly several different guitars, before making a choice.
Personally, I'm no professional musician - or even close. That's what made the S6 absolutely VITAL to me.
I'm good enough to tell when something sounds wrong, but not always good enough to tell when it's me or a flaw in the guitar.
This is where the Seagull has my back.
When the sound coming from the S6 isn't all it could be - I look to my playing to discover why - not to the Seagull itself.
Other than getting a little dead when it needs a new set of strings, which is my fault for not replacing them often, it never dissapoints.
This is good, because I'm not learning to play properly - not how to compensate for a poor-sounding instrument.
I don't have a lot to un-learn later because of starting off using a cheapo beginner's instrument.
I wasn't able to go play 40 guitars and pick one from the herd, due to time, distance, and skill or lack thereof.
What I did instead was perhaps better for me at the time - I listened to the pros play them. Then, I asked them questions...
The S6 and its cousins emerged as excellent sounding instruments, and didn't require a ridiculous budget to purchase.
That was then - this is now. The S6 has been good enough to play the background music for our own radio commercials...
Verdict: If and when you take Nashville by storm, you may want something prettier, or flashier, or with a different "voice" - but I bet you won't sell off your Seagull when that day comes. For my part, it's more guitar than I'll ever outgrow...
The seagull arrived here nicely set up, action spot on, tuned it and played it a little right out of the box, sounded good. As it adjusted to the temperature and humidity, and got a few miles on it, it now sounds great.
Holds tuning well, and I've not had any problems with the 14:1 tuning pegs, though others have. One day when I'm good enough with this thing, I'll treat myself to a set of gold plated 18:1' pegs, or maybe not... :)
Strings: My preferred are D'Addario EJ16-3D Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings, Light - price around and you'll find them three sets for about thirteen bucks - and you want to keep a few spares around.
Tuning - There's a nice free kindle app for that called TUN-D. Nice, and it tunes alternate tunings as well.
Quality wise - no sweat. Tthe only gripe I have is that the finish is easy to scratch.
Here's a bit of their ad copy and a chance to hear the thing:[...]
But then Amazon customer service saved the day. They really do care about their customers and I am pleased with how they handled my complaint. If you are having second thoughts based on reviews about shipping, give Amazon a chance. Given that they removed the product from their site while they conducted an investigation of several shipping complaints, and have now re-instated the product page has led me to believe the issues have been resolved.
The S6 itself is a wonderful starter guitar. Beautifully and meticulously designed, with wonderful tone. It sounds as good as acoustic guitars twice its price.
