Went to GC yesterday to check out what all the fuss was about Seagulls as i am in the market for a cheap guitar for gigging to avoid taking out my OM-21. Played about 5 models and the s6 impressed me the most and i'm not really a dread guy and wanted to like the mini jumbo. Went back today asked them to bring out a new S6 to A/B against the floor model i liked and they were two completely different sounding instruments. The floor model had more bottom , volume , sustain , and an overall piano like quality to it. Was also on sale from $399 to $335 :). Took it right to rehearsal and put it through the paces. What a great sounding inexpensive guitar. Now for a setup ,a new set of strings ,and a K&K mini PU.

I've been a big Seagull fan all along. Amazing bargain for the quality. The little ones are cool too.

Just traded away one of my high end Guilds - have been considering replacing with a Seagull due to the price. I want something I am not spaz over while playing live...

i've had my Seagull S6 for 12 years. It's aged beautifully, and sounds better every year. Love it.

I need to either buy a new one with pickup, or figure out a pickup to put in it so I can play it live though....

I was just at my local Music-Go-Round and they had a batch of scratch and dent Seagulls straight from the factory. They were blowing them out at crazy prices. I picked up an S6 Original Q1 (with the Godin Q1 preamp/pickup) for $160 out the door. The only thing wrong was a healty ding on the edge of the body of the type I likely would have put on it within a few months anyhow. I played it just out of curiousity and couldn't leave without it. These are great guitars at $400 and crazy-go-nuts-great at $160.

I bought a used S6 a couple years ago aand think its great. Got it at a good price. Mine is the S6 Slim model with the slimmer nut width.
