The success of their original Seagull S6 inspired Godin Guitars to make the Seagull S6 Original Slim for those customers who loved the original version but also liked a more traditional nut width. This guitar has a cream binding which also sets it apart from the original. Winner of several awards, the slim may be the best representation from Seagull.
This instrument keeps the use of Wild Cherry wood for its backs and sides, which the company has found is a great wood for creating excellent full tone. It is combined with a silver leaf neck (maple) to provide maximum comfort, plus a rosewood fingerboard along with double-function truss rod. Like all other Seagull guitars, the S6 Original Slim also includes a genuine lacquer finish which allows the instrument to vibrate and breathe easily. This will also allow it to age well, so that as the instrument gets older and is played more, it will actually sound better that it did originally.
