Below is another Meta-review of the Seagull Maritime SWS SG

Seagull’s Maritime SWS SG is an all-solid dreadnought, made with a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. Like the other Seagull guitars on this list, the Maritime features all of the innovative features expected from the brand.

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.

Features:

  • Body Shape: Dreadnought
  • Top: Solid Sitka Spruce
  • Back and Sides: Solid Mahogany
  • Finish: Natural
  • Bridge: Rosewood
  • Neck: Mahogany
  • Neck Profile: Soft C
  • Fingerboard: Rosewood
  • Fingerboard Radius: Not Stated
  • Number of Frets: 21
  • Frets to Body: 14
  • Scale Length: 25.5”
  • Nut Width: 45.72mm

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.
