Seagull Guitars: Original S6 Left-Handed
by Guitar Guru
“Left-Handed Musician’s Dream Come True”
The Seagull Original S6 Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar is the perfect choice for the left-handed musician who is ready to upgrade. What is not to love? With a solid cedar top
and wild-cherry laminate body, this guitar is not shy about its assets.
A beautiful graduation of wood tones (undershot by the red tint of the cedar top) is aesthetically pleasing, and the tone is the beautiful full-bodied richness that comes with the dreadnought style body. The light satin finish on this beautiful top dings easily, so careful not to ding it with your fingernails.
While there may be those that don’t appreciate this piece’s emphasis on the bass (which can come across as sounding a bit boxy when using a pick) it provides the perfect counterpoint for higher-pitched traditional guitars, and the right choice of string weights can make the higher trebles and mid-tones easier to bring out.
At <$450, this left-hander’s dream is an affordable alternative to retrofitting a right-handed guitar for left-handed play. In fact, retrofitting a guitar to accommodate a 'lefty' is not really workable. The bracing inside the guitar is NOT symmetrical. This means that in retrofit, the bracing would be backwards! If you need a 'lefty' BUY a LEFTY!
Though the dreadnought-style body of this Original S6 can be a bit hard to manage for younger or more slightly built players, its richness of tone makes this piece a left-handed musician’s dream come true.
