Seagull Dreadnought Maritime Solid Wood Series Guitar

Maritime SWS 'Solid Wood' Series

The Maritime Solid Wood Series features the dreadnought SWS Semi-Gloss, SWS High-Gloss & SWS Rosewood Semi-Gloss, as well as SWS Folk HG and SWS Mini-Jumbo HG. All solid wood construction is used in all SWS models including solid mahogany back & sides and select pressure tested solid spruce tops, all with a custom polished finish.

Maritime SWS High-Gloss

The Maritime SWS HG, as with all SWS models, features all solid wood construction with a Select Pressure Tested solid spruce top and solid mahogany back & sides. The Maritime SWS HG also features a high-gloss Custom Polished Finish. This finish provides excellent protection but at the same time is extremely light and elastic. This is a crucial point in both the sound of the guitar and its ability to age - a thick finish muffles a guitar's vibration and blocks aging.
