If my memory serves me right, the Seagull guitar models with the, Wild Cherry back and sides,is not solid, but a laminate of three layers of Wild Cherry, so far better than plywood that some other guitar manufacturers use. But the experts state that 80% of the sound/tone of the guitar is based on the wood that the top of the guitar is made from, so a solid wood top is quite important, and all Seagull Guitars have solid wood tops. 😀
Not to be redundant, but to be redundant anyway: as Derick said, the wild cherry back and sides on Seagulls are a three-ply laminate; the tops are usually solid cedar or sitka spruce. I don't think you'll find the sound lacking at all.
Thanks for all the replies. I think I will be very happy with the slim concert I have only read great things about seagulls and being retired, I want the best bang for the buck. I used to own a blue telecaster but sold it to buy a Gretsch.
Over the years I've had more than a few Seagull and Simon and Patrick guitars, and found them to be very well made, nice to play, good value for the money. Only last week I bought the Seagull Coastline folk guitar, and haven't stopped playing it since I got it. Let use all know if you end up buying a Seagull Guitar, and let us know what you think of it.
