Seagull S12 Coastline Q1 · Acoustic Guitar
12-string guitars must endure a great deal of added stress on the neck. The Seagull neck design offers superior stability, even on 12-string guitars tuned to concert pitch. The straight string pull of the tapered Seagull headstock is an especially big advantage when it comes to tuning a 12-string guitar and keeping it in tune.
The Godin EPM Q1 Quantum acoustic guitar system is simple in design and outstanding in performance. A single source system features an exceptionally responsive saddle transducer carefully matched to side mount electronics with rotary volume, bass, and treble controls. The electronics and controls are packaged in a small and easy to use format complemented with a finely crafted pewter cover plate. In combination with the transducer, the EQ control range and frequency content have been specifically contoured to provide a very rich and full sound reproduction resulting in performance seen only in far more complex systems.
Guitars in the Seagull Coastline series are among the world's outstanding values in acoustic guitars. The back and sides of Coastline series guitars are crafted from a 3-layer lamination of wild cherry wood. With a sound between the mellow tone of a mahogany guitar and the bright sound of maple, wild cherry has proven itself to be an excellent tone wood. Grown in North America, wild cherry is also an ecologically friendly choice. Seagull Coastline series guitars feature very smooth necks made from Silver Leaf Maple.

An excellent quality well built guitar. A little heavy in the build but no bad thing given the additional tension of having 12 strings. The set up was excellent and it plays very well with no tuning issues.
The built in Godin tuner works well, though I have to admit I have not yet plugged in to my acoustic Roland amp.
The frets were well finished and the action good. Excellent value for money with Canadian street cred. A good buy.
