The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Seagull S6 Original and S6 Original Slim, Satin Finish


Instrument Categories: ,

The Seagull S6 Original is a small revamp of the award winning Seagull S6, first introduced in 1982 and which has become the flagship model for the Seagull line which features excellent quality and value.   The Seagull line, like Art and Lutherie and Simon & Patrick, are all products of the Godin companies based in southern Quebec, Canada.

The revamp of the Seagull S6 Original features a pressure tested solid cedar top, laminate wild cherry sides and back and a thin yet durable semi-gloss finish. The combination of the dreadnought body shape and the solid cedar top produces a tight bottom end, crisp midrange and smooth top end.

The two neck shapes available on the Seagull S6 Original, Regular and Slim, cover what is comfortable for most players, and the two versions of the guitar are otherwise identical.  The satin finish on the back of the neck helps your hand to not stick as you move up and down the fretboard.   

This guitar works well for strumming and flatpicking due to its larger body size. However, the smooth top end of the cedar can lend towards some very nice fingerstyle playing as well. The laminate sides and back offer great dimensional stability and crack resistance for situations where humidity levels are hard to control – such as travelling or occupying a dormitory room.  

The Seagull S6 Original has simple good looks, great tone and excellent quality for an affordable guitar!

This guitar is priced without case. Gig Bags can be supplied for $45 or $75, or a great  Tric case for $99.
