Seagull Guitars: Cedar Slim Dreadnought

by Guitar Guru

”A Dreadnought for Everyone”

Seagull is nothing if not thoughtful of its customers … the Seagull Cedar Slim Acoustic was designed for those guitarists who love the dreadnought sound but who prefer the slimmer nut width. The Cedar Slim is a perfect choice for those who prefer a more manageable guitar.

Like the other Seagull dreadnoughts, the Cedar Slim has a rich, full-bodied sound that warms you under the surface of your skin and whose resonance you can feel right in your bones. Its strumming tone is woody, as if you’ve tapped a hollow log, while its picking tone is deep and powerful, with decided emphasis on the bass tones.

In fact, the bass can be a bit overpowering, especially if you use the optional electronics. But as a straight acoustic, the Cedar Slim has awesome tonal properties. But Seagull didn’t stop with the sound. This lovely lady is as beautiful to look at as she is classy sounding.

With a solid cedar top and wild cherry back and sides, this instrument glows with a rich honey-red tone that keeps drawing your eye. This look is only improved by the genuine lacquer finish; a touch that lets the solid cedar top breathe freely, ensuring that the guitar ages beautifully and will actually sound better the longer you play it.
