We are proud that The Minor Chord is an authorized dealer for Seagull Guitars.
Made in Canada from native tone woods, Seagull Guitars offer an interesting alternative to the usual spruce tops and tropical wood sides and backs of other brands. They are available in a full range of body sizes from Dreadnaught to Grand (Seagull's term for a parlor size guitar). But even the smallest of the Seagull guitars has a full-size scale and a generous nut width, making them very playable for adults.
In 1982 Robert Godin produced the first Seagull guitars in the village of LaPatrie in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. Robert's concept was to take the essential components of the best hand-crafted guitars (such as solid tops and beautiful finishes) and build these features into guitars that could be priced within the reach of working musicians. Robert succeeded in his goal, producing mid-priced guitars of excellent quality and playability.

We normally stock the Seagull models shown below. We can also, of course, custom order an instrument to your specifications.
This is the guitar that started it all.
Dreadnaught body size. The top is solid cedar. The sides and back are native wild cherry. The neck is maple. The nut is a generous 1.8 inches, or not quite 1-13/16. Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge.
This combination of tone woods gives a full, mellow sound that has to be heard to be appreciated.
Introduced in 2015, the S6 Concert Hall is built in the style of the S6 Original but with a smaller body size. Customers looking for an Orchestra Model (OM) size guitar should check it out.
Like the S6 Original, the top is solid cedar. The sides and back are native wild cherry. The neck is maple. The nut is a generous 1.8 inches, or not quite 1-13/16. Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge.
Smaller than the S6 Original but larger than the Coastline S6 Folk, the S6 Concert Hall is a welcome addition to the Seagull line and will be appreciated by the player looking for a comfortable mid-size instrument.
The Coastline S6 Folk is a beautiful instrument with a solid cedar top, wild cherry sides and back, and Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The neck is maple.
The body of the Coastline S6 Folk is smaller and thinner than the S6 Original, yet the Coastline S6 Folk still boasts a 25-inch scale and 1.8 inch (a little less than 1-13/16) nut.
This is a compact instrument that is very comfortable to play yet - thanks to the cedar top - delivers lots of sound. Perfect for the smaller adult or teen player.
The Seagull Natural Cherry CW Folk SE EQ is similar in construction to the regular Coastline S6 Folk above, but with the addition of a cutaway and a T-35 pickup with built-in tuner.
The Natural Cherry body is finished without the darker stain used in the standard Coastline Folk model, making the grain of the Canadian wild cherry more apparent.
This is an excellent choice for the smaller performer who wants a more compact body size but with a maximum of tone and a pickup.
The Coastline S12 is the 12-string member of the Coastline family. It has a solid cedar top, wild cherry sides and back, and Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The neck is maple with a double-action truss rod. The nut width is 1.9 inches.
The unique straight-pull design of the Seagull headstock minimizes the bending of the strings at the nut, making the Coastline S12 easier to tune and more stable in its tuning than many 12-string guitars.
If you are looking for a step-up 12-string but don't have the budget for a Martin or a Taylor 12-string, you should have a serious look at the Seagull S12.
The Coastline Grand is the parlor-size member of the Seagull Coastline family.
Like the Coastline S6 Folk, it has a solid cedar top, wild cherry back and sides, Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, and maple neck. The body is smaller than the Coastline S6 Folk, but the scale is the same with a slightly smaller 1.72 inch nut. This makes the Coastline Grand the perfect step-up guitar for the smaller teen or pre-teen player.
The Seagull Entourage guitars offer an exceptional value for players of all levels, with materials and construction similar to the S6 Original and Coastline instruments.
The Entourage Rustic is a Dreadnaught size instrument with a solid cedar top, wild cherry back and sides, maple neck, and Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The top has a rustic sunburst finish.
Entourage guitars have a scale of 25 inches (1/2 inch shorter than the S6 Original) and a nut width of 1.72 inches (a little over 1-11/16 and a bit narrower than the S6 Original). The narrower nut width makes the Entourage series more familiar to players used to a 1-11/16 inch nut.
The Entourage Rustic Grand is the parlor-size mamber of the Entourage family.
Except for the smaller body size, the Entourage Rustic Grand has the same materials, construction and features as the larger Entourage Rustic. The smaller size makes it an ideal choice for a teen or pre-teen player looking for an affordable solid-top instrument.
