The cherry and mahogany are not solid. They are a two-ply laminate of a single piece of mahogany/cherry and a single piece of maple. Personally, I prefer this to a lot of low-grade solid wood guitars, because the maple offers a great deal of clarity. Essentially, the cherry will be slightly brighter.

That, and the gloss finish will take much more time to mature (though it will be much more resistant to dings and scratches; this can be important, because cedar dings very easily).
Sincerely, Chad.

I played the s6 original and the guitar is amazing, especially for the price. You're getting a beautiful guitar either way. I actually took a tour of the seagull factory and they really put effort and work into their guitars.
