Hey, gang! I have a new guitar arriving this weekend, and I'm officially overstocked. So, as much as I've grown to love it, I've decided to sell my 2015 Seagull Artist Mosaic Folk QII.
I'll post some photos, when I find a moment, but really wanted to get the word out here, in case anyone is interested. The tone is absolutely fantastic, gaining some low end over the years to make it extremely well balanced, and it has tremendous sustain for a smaller guitar.
Two notable things about this particular guitar: (1.) it has the highly sought after QII mic system, which is a dual UST and directional mic (you can blend to create extremely authentic sounds and (2.) it has a jet black ebony board and saddle. Seagull has downgraded both of these items in recent years --- stocking their Artist guitars with Element UST pickups and Richlite boards.
I am the original owner for this guitar, which is in excellent / near mint condition. I'm asking $850 plus shipping (continental U.S. only), which is in line with what they've recently sold for on Reverb. PM me, if interested, and I can send photos, answer questions, etc. Hurry, before I come to my senses and decide to keep it!
Yeah, I'm torn 50/50. I've turned my other Seagulls, but kept both of my Artist Mosaic guitars (dread and folk). Seagull does cedar tops really well. But I'm running out of space and need to make room for the incoming semi-hollow. My long-standing plan has been to trade an acoustic to offset the space.
Oh, I know.... and that's a big reason why I love and have kept my 2015 folk and 2016 dread. Nothing wrong with the rosewood boards on the older ones, although I prefer the looks for ebony... but I am still dumbfounded that they are placing Richlite on their premium line. This guitar had great overtones and sustain from the beginning, and now it's settled into a really nice balance. I don't play much finger style, but it's ideal for that playing style (even though it handles basic strumming fine too).

Update: after a couple of months, debating whether to keep or not, I sold it this morning. Really nice guy, who’s been playing for two years and knew this was what he wanted. I’m always happy when I know my guitars are going to another good home.
-1962 Martin D-21 -1950 Gibson LG1 -1958 Goya M-26 -1974 Yamaha FG75 high strung -A number of banjos, mandolins, Autoharps, ukuleles, dulcimers, mouth harps, a Tele clone and various other stuff. -I own a fiddle, but only play it when Maggie and the cats are all out of the house.
I keep adding new Eastman guitars, so my last Seagull is for sale. 2016 Artist Mosaic w/ ebony bridge and board. I added a bone saddle, when I had it professionally setup. It's the best Seagull I've ever owned or played -- it's lightly built, and the tone and responsiveness are extremely good. I've been reluctant to let it go... but it just doesn't get enough time from me, so I'd rather it land with someone who will play it more.
Asking $700 locally... open to anyone on this board, if they don't mind picking up the shipping.
