Great guitar for the money. If I lost this one, I'd look at the same guitar and others in the Seagull range, and I'd probably look to mor expensive regular accoustics too (the usual suspects) now that my little one is getting less of a hazard to the guitar.
Model Year: 1999
Price: $450.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Small music shop in Brixton, London
6 string regular accoustic guitar, Canadian made in real wood, no pick-ups electronics. Standard machine heads, nothing special. Basic but well made. Only let down by the frets not being completely flush with the top of the neck.
It plays great. Good neck for an mid-price accoustic, playable as far as you care to go.
I didn't intend buying a guitar at all when I bought it (or spending anything like the money I did when I was going to buy a guitar) but it just 'sang' even in my somewhat inept hands. Of course you can get better, but you'd have to pay a lot more.
Never played live, except to gatherings of the few friends who can tolerate my singing.
My only complaint is that it needs re-tuning almost every day, it seems to be very sensitive to small temperature changes. (Hint, give up trying to tune with harmonics and buy an electronic tuner, I wish I'd had one 30 years ago when I first started playing...). Never had to adjust anything else.
And it stands up well to all the accidents that occur when you have a active boy toddler (now an even more active pre-schooler) around.
