Seagull continues to rake in high ratings for their quality acoustics, and the S6 Original is easily one of their best.

While very similar to a dreadnought, the S6 Original's body shape is subtly modified to cut some unwanted boominess.

This guitar features a solid cedar top and comes with a modified dreadnought shape, which cuts some of the boominess while retaining good projection. For the back and sides, this guitar features wild cherry, a staple wood used by Seagull and its parent company, Godin.

Another standout feature of this guitar is the use of pressure testing for their tops, which ensures structural stability and resonance. It also sports a silver leaf maple set-neck, that helps with overall tone and sustain. The guitar's nut and compensated saddle are made of TUSQ, a high-grade composite material that many consider as good for sustain.

Finally, it has a distinctly shaped headstock that allows the strings to lineup better with the tuners for improved tuning stability,
