Seagull Maritime SWS SG 6 String Acoustic Guitar (Discontinued)
The Seagull Maritime SWS SG appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic Guitars in the $500 to $1000 price bracket when we published the first edition back in November 2016. It remained on the list for 3 editions in total, finally coming off the list in September 2019.
The Maritime SWS SG features a full-depth dreadnought body with all solid wood construction and a light gloss finish designed to allow the top wood to breath and open up over time.
It is an all-solid dreadnought, made with a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides.
However, the most important thing to know about this guitar is that it combines Seagull’s build quality with traditional materials. Because the guitar is a pairing of spruce and mahogany you’re going to get a more traditional dreadnought tone with the tuning stability and projection that results from the Seagull line’s features.
Lastly, keep in mind that like other Seagull guitars the Maritime SWS SG also has a slightly wider nut width than what you may be accustomed to. It’s not a huge difference, but it’s big enough that there may be an adjustment period.
