I like the two hybrid gulls on the cushions.  They look like some bird or gull.

Welcome to the flock Sammy!

The S6 is a great choice, a hard working good sounding instrument!

Welcome to the group and this site Sammy!  You couldn't ask for a bunch of nicer people to hang with, especially of course regarding all things acousticy guitarishy.  8-D  I love the community here.  They've been super.

Just put new strings on my reclaimed Seagull Hog tonight.  I put these strings called DR Dragon Skin (with the "invisible coating") on it.  12-54s.  I got them super cheap a couple years ago when my store was out of Elixers.  He gave me these at a discount due to the no Elixers thing.

All I gotta say is, WOW.  I shoulda tried these things out sooner.  Strumming the six string, when I hit certain chords is sounded almost like a 12 string!  LOL.  These strings sound so balanced and beautiful and "sparkly."  If they last even half as long as Elixers, I "may" have found a new fav, at least tied with Elixers.  I'm really impressed.

Welcome sammy. Enjoy the spruce top gull.

Comment by Chuck Hydrick on September 16, 2014 at 7:41pm

Hi Sammy, and welcome! Good to have an additional member of the fairer sex join the group. Your S6 is an excellent choice for a first instrument. (Heck - it's an excellent choice for a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th instrument.) ;-)

Welcome Sammy!  I "rescued" a 1996 Seagull S6 Dlx spruce top.  It was very well played, the top has much wear around the sound hole, cracks in the top,  the fingerboard and frets were full of divots, the bridge was bolted on, and the action was high.  I scraped & filled the fingerboard, leveled & crowned the frets, reset the neck, made a new bridge and fixed the cracks.  It looks & sounds much better but the "damage" to the top make it look well used.

Hello Everyone! 

I am new here and I thought I will introduce myself.

I am a beginner in guitar.

I don't know much about guitars but I ended up with an used Seagull S6.

I inquired and found out that mine is a 1992 Seagull 6 dlx with a solid spruce top. 

I don't know if that is a good thing or not but it sounds nice :)

Anyway, I will work hard so that I can bring out the true sound of my seagull one day. XD

Nice to meet you all!

I have a t shirt with the same guitars that FGull posted below. I just changed the strings to my Martin.  Gulls need new strings but will have to wait for a while more.

See how they wear in - you may have a new "favorite set"... :-)
