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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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".
