Summary: I have had my S12 for two weeks now. I did a ton of online research and played 12 strings in local shops before deciding to order this guitar. All I can say is it delivers. The sound is well balanced from the lows to the highs. I changed the strings to elixir lights as soon as I got it. I tuned it and have had to only make minor adjustments to its tuning since then. I am amazed at how well it stays in tune for a 12 string.
Summary: I like this guitar, I was pleasantly suprised to see it is finished much more nicely than the picture on this site. There is a nice script "seagull" between the tuners and the headstock is bound. The electronics control has a built in tuner which is a big bonus to me. Overall a very very nice product and I feel good about buying a canadian made product instead of something from a Chinese sweatshop.
Summary: I wanted a reasonably priced 12 string with decent electronics but didn't want the predictable cheap Chinese variants from so many of the other more mainstream brands. I have a Godin xtSA electric/piezo/synth (same company as Seagull) that I love way more than I ever expected given the reasonable cost and decided to give their acoustics a try. Whoa - what a truly wonderful guitar.
Summary: Only gave it 4 stars because Ive only had it a short time. So far very satisfied and hope it becomes a 5 star after six or seven months of use. Under prime shipping I had the item the next day, with no tax and about 4.00 cost. Item was packed in a box within a box. Inner box slid around too much for my taste, and could have used more packing paper. I could find only one very small ding on the back of the guitar which probably was done at the factory.
Summary: This shipped very well,Great condition. The Guitar is built with CARE,It needed to be tuned after I unpacked it, but was no problem having the onboard tuner. Sound very nice,You'll have to get use to all the strings. The sound is worth the time spent learning!
Summary: I have had this guitar for a whole seven hours and I'm already in love. I'm also in love with Amazon Prime. I ordered this yesterday at 11:43am and received it today at 11:10am. The $7 charge for Saturday delivery was well worth it. The guitar came set up nicely with low action out of the box. A few minutes of tuning and it's playing like a dream. Great tone played acoustically, plug it in and it's even better.
