The guitar tone is rich, the neck is very comfortable, and the setup was PERFECT. Guitar-made in Canada by Godin and home couraging hand. I like the wide neck. Keep in mind that the neck is very chunky, and while it suits my average sized hands well enough after some getting used to, it may be too fat for some. I might put lighter striings on when it comes time to change, but really have no complaints. The playability is superb: the neck is comfortable from nut to body, and the electronics provide a rich and full response through my Fender Acoustasonic amp. Great value for the price paid. The guitar has a quality build, look, and feel. Item was packed in a box within a box. Was really looking forward to this guitar after all the hype I had heard about this guitar and Seagull quality. User review from MGR/Dave Schutte about Seagull Coastline S12 Cedar : Seagull S12 Seagull prides themselves on making high quality hand made guitars, and this one of my favorites that they make. Seagull prides themselves on making high quality hand made guitars, and this one of my favorites that they make. Overall a very very nice product and I feel good about buying a canadian made product instead of something from a Chinese sweatshop. The retail price was around $600. Never having played a Seagull, I decided to take a chance and order this model from Amazon. With a warm mid-range, chiming highs, and sweet tonal clarity in the sustain, this guitar is everything I hoped for in sound and feel. (This content has been automatically translated from French). 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. Inner box slid around too much for my taste, and could have used more packing paper. There is a nice script "seagull" between the tuners and the headstock is bound. I am an ex-professional musician and studio owner. The electronics control has a built in tuner which is a big bonus to me. It had a string buzz and didn't sound great. It's a great guitar. It is not an acoustic-electric, so it does not have any pick ups or setting controls. The Seagull Coastline Series S12 is a cedar top dreadnought guitar with a rich, full sound that only a quality 12-string guitar can produce. Reviewed in the United States on March 8, 2013. (Originally written by leruisseau/translated from Audiofanzine FR). The box looked like it had been opened and taped back together several times. The headstock was super rough and there was a small gap on the back where the sealing of the back to the body was. I can't even explain the sound, but its up there with some very expensive 12 string models, and the electronics are more than adequate. I am impressed beyond words at the quality of this guitar for the money. Take my advice, stay away from the cheaper models, for not much more money the Seagull Coastline S12 Cedar QI is an investment in a guitar that you'll enjoy playing for many years. So a 12 string will never sound as loud as a 6 string. I mean, I had no break in period. Let’s take a peek under the hood to find out what they are. Reviewed in the United States on August 28, 2018. General appearance: good grip. This was back in 1993 or 94. Helpful. Very clean finish, with varnished and well-tended, cream netting round the head and body. The mechanical oil baths Seagull stamped, they are accurate and reflect well the agreement. I like the sound. I recommend it. You can still see all customer reviews for the product. If your a beginner like myself, be patient, don't give up, get the right teacher,set you expectations to match your ability and you'll start to see yourself getting better! I don't know how to describe it - surreal. No harsh notes. Rated 4.5 / 5 by 10 customers! It is indeed a superb guitar. I've played a few other 12-strings before, several (at another store) costing twice as much or more - but none of them can match this one. I had looked at several dozen guitars and had narrowed my choices to the Seagull or a used Martin for about the same price. My comparison is a Gibson J200, which I love but which costs considerably more.
