Seagull guitars have earned a reputation for uncompromising quality since the creation of the multi-award winning S-6 in 1982.
This hand-crafted guitar features a matte finish that accentuates the natural beauty of the Wild Cherry back and sides, while allowing the solid Cedar top to vibrate freely.
This affordable yet exceptional playing and sounding instrument features a smooth satin hand-finished Silver Leaf Maple neck, and Adirondack Spruce bracing.
The Folk body is smaller and more rounded than the more common dreadnought body, and very comfortable to play whether standing up or sitting down.

The Instrument's Family
For over 30 years, Seagull have been building guitars with the utmost attention to detail in their manufacturing processes. Their factories and workshops have always been staffed by local talent.
With an eye to sustainability, they have launched many initiatives to work with reclaimed wood, and to replant trees and forests.
Seagull guitars are built strong with select pressure tested solid cedar or spruce tops, which amplify the tonal qualities of the guitar, and bring the Seagull experience up a few notches.
The tapered headstock on Seagull guitars provides straight string pull, which minimizes the neck twisting effect. This insures that it will be easier to get your guitar in tune and keep it that way. This is particularly advantageous for the growing ranks of players who use open tunings.
