Happiness is a Seagull Mini Jumbo
By: Rob H. from Quincy Wa USA
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I think this guitar is solid and made very well.I looked it over many times and found nothing wrong with it. There are no blemishes of any kind. The tuners are very good seagull tuners which do not slip. The tuner is very good and seems to be made well. It isn't plastic and is made by Godin.
How has it stood up over time?
I have had it only a month,it should last a life time if taken care of properly.
Your general opinion of this product.
It is, in my opinion, a very nice guitar. Not only is the finish beautiful it sounds great. It has a nice loud voice. I am more than pleased with it.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The balance is good. The neck feels good in my hand and seems to be fast. It came set up well and is very playable out of the box. The tuner is very easy to use. I haven't plugged it in to and amp yet so I can't comment on how it sounds. The tuner/controls are in a good place to see them and have easy access to the controls.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tone is mellow and not too dark. Changing the strings may change the tone a bit.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Perfect. I like the natural finish. It's beautiful.
How was the action out of the box?
The neck needed to be adjusted which was as simple as tightening the rod to correct it. The action is set up pretty well at the shop and very playable out of the box.
