I ordered this guitar online (due to COVID) along with a Gator hard case and Acclaim shipped the guitar inside the case for further protection. In addition to the protection offered by the hard case, Acclaim added plenty of a tube shaped bubble wrap that prevented the case from rattling around inside the box. Compared to non music specialty retailers like Amazon, Acclaim really provides the extra level of protection when shipping the package. Everything came in perfect condition without any signs of wear on the case and guitar. Overall, the online shopping experience was excellent, and I can tell that Acclaim really takes good care of ensuring your package is safe in a delivery vehicle.
Now onto the guitar...
The Seagull S6 Slim gives such a rich, clear tone that just makes me want to play more and more. I was actually going to opt for the budget friendly Yamaha FG800, but I was advised by another guitarist that Seagulls are the real deal when it comes to sound and build quality. I was much more impressed with what this guitar sounded like compared to more budget options. Although this is dubbed as the slim neck version of the S6, I have no issues with the reduced nut width, the slim is actually more on the average nut width when compared to other acoustics! The semi gloss finish on the guitar is beautiful and makes it much easier to maintain as no fingerprints are seen after playing. What I appreciate most from this guitar is the fact that it isn't a big name brand with tons of history like Fender or Gibson. Because of this, Seagull/Godin actually has more room for innovation and more wood varieties to work with, and make a really stunning product that rivals the big boys. They don't need to cater to the demands of fans asking for more classic model refreshes that use the same materials and methods of construction from their original debut. I hope Seagull/Godin can continue to innovate and provide beautiful sounding guitars. I am definitely going to shop with Acclaim for their Godin/Seagull guitars again.
