A solid top acoustic at a great price.

Seagull has done it again - the S6 Entourage boasts a super comfortable slim neck and a solid cedar top. Speaking of beauty, you'll love the finish: a deep, rustic burst - honey toward the center, almost chocolate at the edges, with the rich red cedar shining through it all. And as with all Seagulls, the finish is thin enough to allow your tonewood to naturally age, getting better and better over time.

      Comments about Godin S6 Entourage Acoustic Guitar:

      I searched several different websites looking for a guitar that I could use to help teach my grandsons who have shown an interest in playing. I decided to purchase this one after reading all the reviews and I'm glad I bought it. It's a nice guitar for the price, built well, sounds great, and I have not been able to put it down since I bought it.

      One of the Best on the Market

      By muddyjeepyj

      Comments about Godin S6 Entourage Acoustic Guitar:

      I purchased this guitar two years ago and I could not be happier. Originally, I had been looking for an electric guitar and while I was out shopping at a local guitar shop, I spotted this one on the stand and picked it up to fiddle around with. I immediately fell in love. I went back three times just to play it.

      The tone and warmth of this guitar is incredible. The build quality and sound rivals that of other acoustic guitars twice it's price. Every time I get together with my musician friends, whether they've been playing for 40 years or 2, they want to play my guitar.

      I really enjoy finger picking and the clarity of notes is great.

      All in all, for a reasonably priced, North American made acoustic guitar, I don't think you can get much better than this.

      One of the very best for the money!

      By Frank E. Millis, Sr.

      from Wheat Ridge, Colorado

      Comments about Godin S6 Entourage Acoustic Guitar:

      As a former member of local Western Music bands in the 1950's and later, as president of the Colorado Bluegrass Music Society in the 1980's, I've had the experience and pleasure of playing many fine guitars: In my opinion, the Seagull S6 Entourage is representative of the best available guitars in this price range, being both affordable and of totally acceptable quality for the average player. The solid Cedar top gives a somewhat warmer sound than spruce, but is softer and scratches more easily. That's not a problem for fingerpickers, who by nature of their chosen style seldom mar the top's surface. However, heavy strumming and hard picking would make a pickguard -- which isn't advertised as being included with this guitar -- a welcome addition. In any case, acceptable pickguards can be purchased quite cheaply either locally or from reputable online music companies. As a downside. the thick plastic stick-on rosette adds little to the general appearance. Like all solid-topped guitars, this one should be kept humidified to avoid cracking, so it's a good idea to also purchase a case and humidifier to save both money and possible grief in the long run. This instrument is made in Canada from sturdy, old-growth forest woods, including a pressure-tested cedar top and the unusual wild red cherry used for the laminated sides and back. The nut width is 1.72 inches, almost exactly halfway between the standard 1-11/16" and 1-3/4 " sizes, making this usable for all styles of play. I've played three of these and they were nearly identical in quality and initial setup, which was quite good. "Travis picking" with a thumbpick and index finger pick is quite easy on this model, which doesn't have quite the booming bass of most multi-thousand dollar dreadnaughts but still delivers wonderfully clear intonation on both high and low strings. Both the saddle and nut are Tusq, rare in this price range, and the deliberately thin finish is described by the Seagull factory as a "rustic burst custom polished finish" which is sprayed inline with the major axis on top, darkening towards the outer sides. This finish, apparently lacquer-based, allows the wood to age properly, unlike many of the more heavily-coated and super-shiny guitars I've owned which failed to improve soundwise over the passing years. The well-shaped neck is made from Silver Maple. Note that the rather odd "inverse" peghead shape keeps strings better aligned with the tuner shafts, helping these guitars to stay in tune. Nice touch. As the bottom line, I'd chose this instrument over 95% of similarly priced ones, and you owe it to yourself to check out this model when choosing any guitar as a long-term companion. Yes, I'm really impressed! -- Frank E. Millis, Sr.

      Comments about Godin S6 Entourage Acoustic Guitar:

      This is my first guitar and I am VERY pleased with it! It feels comfortable to hold and is constructed from some very beautiful wood. From what people tell me, it will only get better. It sounds great to me, but I have no basis to really make this judgment. However, numerous people I work with have begged to play it ever since I got it because they are all very impressed with this piece. Their skills range from a couple years of playing to 20+ years experience. I would most definitely recommend this guitar to anyone!

      Affordable, very playable, good-sounding dreadnought

      By Nick-rt9_B

      from Chicago

      Comments about Godin S6 Entourage Acoustic Guitar:

      I already own a Seagull Grand parlor and an S12+ dreadnough 12-string, and I decided to get the Seagull Entourage 6-string dreadnought. Like the other Seagulls, it comes with a "rustic burst" satin-finished solid cedar top, wild-cherry laminate back and sides. The Entourage is a budget version of their S6 dreadnought, but it sounds really good, like the other Seagulls. The neck width is standard 1.72" rather than the slightly wider neck of the S6, and the action was set moderately low on mine (I had to raise the saddle a bit; I usually have to lower the saddle on most other new guitars.) Solid cedar tops "age" much faster than solid spruce, and you'll find this guitar a very playable, great-sounding, and very affordable first or spare guitar. Remember that the cedar tops in Seagull guitars come from logs that are 5 to 6 feet in diameter harvested from the forests of Canada. The only thing I didn't like about this guitar is the weird thick plastic sticker rosette that is applied around the soundhole; I got tired of my fingertips running into it, and I carefully peeled the sticker off. Make some great music by getting one of these guitars.
