Seagull Excursion Series - Summer NAMM 2013
Godin Guitars is set to debut the affordable Seagull Excursion Series at the upcoming 2013 Summer NAMM Show.
These guitars are manufactured in Princeville Quebec, Canada, and are expected to have a street price of just $299.
The Seagull Excursion series come in three acoustic guitar shapes - parlor, folk and dreadnought. They are all designed to balance construction quality, material and cost, resulting in North America made workhorse acoustics with tempting price tags.
These guitars come with a wild cherry top which is pleasant to look at and is expected to give the instrument a vibrant tone. The top is supported by 3-layer laminate hardwood back and sides. The neck is made from silver leaf maple, while the fretboard and the bridge is crafted from rosewood. The neck width at the nut is measured at 1.72", ideal for players that prefer traditional nut width.
Other Excursion Series features include burn stamped rosettes, compensated Tusq nut and saddle by Graphtech, and semi-gloss custom polished finishes. You can also have these acoustics equipped with an optional Fishman Isys+ preamp system with built-in tuner, for convenient stage use.
Godin’s Sales & Marketing Manager Mario Biferali.“It was not an easy task to create a Canadian made acoustic guitar with this level of build quality while making it so incredibly affordable. Really, it’s astounding at this price point. This series is a direct response to what our Seagull dealer base & their customers wanted, and they sound fantastic. A big tip of the hat to our team in Princeville Quebec who rose to the challenge and made it happen!”
These guitars will be on display at the Godin guitars booth at the upcoming Summer NAMM show in Nashville, TN from July 11 to 13, 2013. For more information, you can visit Seagull Guitars.

When you consider how much time and effort you put into getting your rig to sound just the way you want, it makes sense to ensure your guitar cables are also up to the job - after all they're an important part of the tone chain. Also remember that occasionally things will go wrong, so always carry at least one spare cable to gigs and rehearsals.
