The innovative design and construction of the Seagull Maritime SWS dreadnought offer a smooth-playing, handcrafted instrument at a price working musicians can afford. Guitarists at Sweetwater love the Seagull Maritime SWS dreadnought cutaway acoustic-electric for its playability and tone.
Innovative neck construction and mounting deliver killer playability and tone
The attention to detail given to each Seagull shows in their looks, playability, and tone. Seagull has also taken extra care to ensure that the Maritime SWS dreadnought neck helps to create an amazing guitar experience. An acoustic guitar’s neck is more than just a fretboard used for playing; it also creates the guitar’s tone. Seagull’s integrated set neck gives your guitar the sound you want along with the stability you need in a performing guitar. This system provides stable and consistent action that also reduces warping and twisting. Thanks to this integrated system, the SWS’s neck pitch is perfectly set. If it’s too far forward, the instrument will sound muddy, and if it’s too far back, the guitar will sound tinny. Seagull’s design assures optimized sound and playability with these and other innovations found in the entire Seagull line.
Super-comfortable dreadnought body style
Arguably Seagull’s most comfortable body style, the Seagull Maritime SWS cutaway dreadnought shape is the perfect fit for anyone looking for a more-manageable instrument. The Maritime SWS would perform equally as well for both adults and children and offers easy portability.
Seagull’s quest for tone
Robert Godin, the owner of Seagull Guitars, has never been satisfied with “good enough.” His tireless search for a better guitar has created quite a few innovations that go into every guitar model that Seagull makes. Every Maritime SWS dreadnought semi-gloss top is pressure tested for rigidity and stiffness to ensure maximum harmonic vibration. The unique compound curved top adds structural integrity to the guitar and allows for thinner bracing. The Maritime SWS dreadnought cutaway will give you years of great performance.
