Gearank Recommendation

The S6 Classic M-450T was on our recommended list for Acoustic-Electric Guitars Under $500 from August 2018 until April 2020.

Overview

The S6 Classic continues to be among Seagull's most popular guitar offerings, and rightly so with its considerable quality to price ratio. It is a great introductory instrument that showcases their brand of craftsmanship and quality control.

Visually, what sets this guitar apart is its distinct headstock shape, but there's more to this guitar than meets the eye. Firstly, the guitar's top is crafted from solid cedar, an interesting wood choice because this type of wood is more commonly used on nylon string guitars. The warm tone of cedar matches nicely with the bright sound of wild cherry, a staple tonewood used on the back and sides of most Godin guitars.

This combination gives the instrument a more distinct appearance and sound.

Other features that don't follow the usual convention include the use of maple for the neck, and its B-Band M-450 T preamp system.

Be it for starting your guitar journey or for expanding your existing arsenal of instruments, the Seagull S6 Classic M-450T will exceed your expectations.
