Many luthiers consider the combination of rosewood back and sides with a spruce top to be the standard that all other wood combinations are measured against. The Artist Studio CW Element is the flagship of the Seagull's Artists Series. Rich sound with ample dynamics and projection this guitar is equally at home on stage and in more intimate fully acoustic settings. This guitar is also an exceptional choice for recording. This model includes L.R. Baggs Element electronics.
The Artist Series are the upper echelon of the Seagull family. They are crafted in the Godin Acoustic Atelier by a select few luthiers using only their finest tonewoods, each hand-selected to ensure that the very highest standards are met. Features including pressure tested solid tops, solid back and sides, scalloped Adirondack Spruce bracing, custom polished finishes and fine aesthetic attributes, all contribute to an outstanding series of acoustic guitars.

I own other Seagull guitars and they are all fantastic guitars. But when I received this one it was unplayable. The action was way too high. This was not a out of the box player. I had to dig out the trusty ruler and set it to 3/32. I have seen cheap guitars set up better than this one was. I believe I have it just about right but the nut and saddle may need to be shaved a little in the future. The projection is not what I expected from a rosewood/spruce guitar. I am an experienced player and have set up hundreds of guitars but for the price you would think Seagull Guitars could at least have it ready to play when you receive it. NO BIG DEAL but just be prepared to work on this model as soon as you receive it.
