General Your general opinion of this product. A friend bought a Seagull a decade ago...it was the best playing straight acoustic I'd ever felt. I tried to get him to sell it to me for years, even after 2 broken neck repair jobs. The breaks didn't change it a bit...he would not sell, so I finally broke down and bought my own. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It is a fabulously built instrument. Seams, fit and playability...superb. The axe man in my cover band tried it out...played for a few seconds, then said, "butter. I wish my electrics had this action..." Little story...it arrived with the battery compartment lid off, and the battery hanging out. Further inspection revealed that the top screw had been driven in too hard, and had cracked the box, loosening it, causing the lid to come loose. I just pushed it together, and reset the screw, fixing the problem, but I reached out to AMS anyway, being cheap and always looking to save a buck...they gave me 10% off on my word, sight unseen. Saved me sending it back, and them restocking and reselling it at a discount. The BEST customer service dept in the industry, bar none. Check this out...so I'm checking out the paperwork and stuff that came with the guitar, and I notice the assembly and inspection checklist. All boxes checked except.....Final Inspection..see below Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? I'll finish quick...I sent Godin guitars an email, telling them what happened, that I loved their guitars...the checklist...they sent me free, a new battery case...whole new one. Free. From Canada. Personal emails and everything. Amazing. Fast, clean, smooth. Controls easy to access...plays and feels like a dream. Just like my dads $1200 Martin. And I really mean that. My only complaint, and its pretty valid, but easily overcome, is that the top end strap peg is WAY too small. I am stupidly using this guitar in a live coverband situation, and cannot have the strap falling off, and it fell off every time I played standing up and moved the guitar. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? bright, clean. Acoustic volume on the low side, but very clean. Amplifies beautifully. Action How was the action out of the box? amazing. See above Butter. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? wood. Beautiful wood. Even smells like clean fresh wood! When I was talking to the AMS customer guy, he looked up the guitar and said, wow, thats one gorgeous finish.. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I'm sure it will be fine. Reference my friends two broken neck repairs with no change in playability and feel.
Very pleased with outstanding guitar

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? All joinery matched perfectly, book matched top looks great, has great tone. All detail looks remarkable. This is my go to guitar Reliability How has it stood up over time? Haven't had it for very long as this spruce top in the Entourage series has been in production for a very short time. I have other Seagull guitars and they have stood the test of time. This one is special, and it should be no different. General Your general opinion of this product. Seagull produces some of the finest instruments in North America. For the price point, you can't go wrong. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The guitar is very light,the neck measures 1.72", it has a very good feel and it's very easy to play. If you are interested in one, you should go in person to try one out. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The spruce top has a brighter sound than a cedar top. It will take a little longer to "age", the more you play the better it will sound. The sound is very well rounded, very full. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Firstly, Seagull puts a lot into their woods and in their craftsmanship. It's looks are very understated and elegant. It caught me eye as soon as I entered into the guitar room! I knew it was love at first sight! Action How was the action out of the box? I bought mine in store, the the action for me was perfect, no adjustments needed here. The guitar was already "set up".
