Seagull S6 Original Burnt Umber QIT 041831 Acoustic-Electric Guitar

Gearank Recommendation

The Seagull S6 Original Burnt Umber QIT appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic-Electric Guitars from April 2021 until August 2022 when it was out-ranked by the Takamine GJ72CE.

Overview

The Seagull brand is well known for attention to detail, and more importantly, they provide premium quality at more reasonable price points.

This version of the S6 Original showcases much of what Seagull is all about, with its quality tonewood selection which includes a pressure-tested compound curved solid spruce top, and wild cherry for the back sides.

This guitar features a modified dreadnought shape body with integrated set neck crafted from silver leaf maple.

Like all Seagull acoustics, this one features a slim headstock that positions each tuner directly in line with the bridge, this results in straight string pull that helps improve tuning stability.

Finally, it is equipped with Quantum I electronics with 2-band EQ and built-in tuner.
