Great sound, great looks, and great pickup. I haven't played the Entourage Rustic with the pickup, but I've played other Seagulls with the same pickup, and loved it. As far as Cedar-topped dreads go, Seagull's got it down to an art. Best fingerpicking tone I've ever gotten out of a dread, and the response to strumming is perfectly flat. Flatpicking has a little more twang, which I prefer. Overall, great guitar.

Absolutely amazing guitar, and not just for it's price.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

They're OK, but unexceptional, even in that price range. The tone's OK for simple strumming, but not really much else, and the necks are a little wonky -- something about them doesn't feel right, but I can't quite put my finger on it. They're solidly built, but the finish is somewhat sloppy, and they scratch very easily.

I had one but never played it, so I gave it to my brother, who's since given it to my sister who's only playing it until she gets a chance to sneak off my 12-string (IMHO the only good guitar Seagull makes). Oh, while I remember: buy strings in bulk, because the Entourage eats through them. They go from buzzy to dead with no happy medium in between.

So yeah, for my money I'd much sooner get a Yamaha. Though it's hard to say whether the Seagull will fit your needs as a player, since you haven't really said what they are.


You can give all this insight on the quality/tone of the guitar even though you've never played it? There are lots of factors that can make a single guitar sound bad. Humidity, string type, acoustics of the room, and most importantly the player's skill. I'm not saying your skill is lacking, but judging by the other posts, it appears that you got a lemon. In General, they're great guitars. Every manufacturer has their defects.

I have a Seagul Mini Jumbo and find its a great Guitar. It has tons of Volume when needed. A sweet light tone for the finer parts of a song. The Canadian build a fine instrument.
It compliments my Martin.
