Seagull 12 string

Posted by BOB PIERCE on Wed, 11/28/01 - 14:29:48.

I recently purchased a S12+ Seagull guitar from a guy at the Canton, Texas Flea Market for $200. and it is great! I had not even heard of these fanatastic guitars until I purchased mine. The neck is narrow and the action is low and easy. I am a beginner at age 54
and i now play along with two other pickers and my wife in keyboard during our church services. Has anyone else experienced the Seagull? bob

A friend of mine had one of their 12 strings. I thought it was a great guitar, and the kind I would get if I ever get another acoustic.

I've got a 6-string Seagull that I just love. I've got a very expensive Tacoma that I also like,
although the tones are very different. The Seagulls, in my opinion, are the best in their
price range. Thay are manufactured by the Lasido Company in a small village in Canada.
They also manufacture Simon & Patrick, and Godin guitars.
Most of them have a solid cedar top with a very thin coat of lacquer, and that combination
lets the top be very touch-responsive. They have a wide 1.80" neck. Seagulls are good for
just about any style you play, and terrific for fingerpicking.

I've owned my Seagull 12 for about 4 or 5 years now and its the best value 12 I could find. I own Tak's Fenders, Washburns, Tune's and I still come back to the Seagull even when I don't need to play a 12 string. Only complaint I have is that feedback is hard to control on stage even when going through FOH and using a feedback buster. Enjoy your playing experience - get with friends - join a club. All the best from Down Under.
