Thread Name: Are Seagulls Plywood?
Subject: RE: Are Seagulls Plywood?

After 5 or 6 years of owning my first Seagull guitar, I ran across an issue of Accoustic Guitar Mag that was reviewing the 'best' guitars under 500 bucks... The Seagull S6, mine, and it sounds like, yours as well, placed 2nd just under a Tack I think... THe only reason it lost was what they called 'a slightly anemic' apperance, mostly because of the tapered headstock... But I seem to recall the author saying that if they had to pick by sound alone, the Seagull would have at least tied for first...

My opinion... pound for pound, dollar for dollar, no guitar makes -ME- happier than a Seagull... I'm currently having an affair with my new Artist Series Mahogany Folk DuetII... My S6 and my S6+ CW are insanely jealous...


Looking at the chart on the Seagull website ( will show you that the S Series are made with "3-layer lamination of Wild Cherry"... the M Series are "3-layer Mahogany" and the A series are either solid Mahogany, Rosewood, or Flame Maple...
