Read on for a full list of features and a complete review.
Key Features of the Seagull Entourage Rustic
I am indeed very fortunate in terms of finding videos on YouTube which provide a good overview of these guitars! I’ve once again found a great video in which the guy who made it lets you hear what this acoustic guitar sounds like as well as giving a quick review of the main features which the Seagull Entourage Rustic has to offer. As always I will of course provide a full list of features followed by a complete review just below the video. Enjoy.
As promised before the video we shall now jump into the textual list of features for this acoustic guitar, which as I mentioned will be followed by a complete review;
- Great Sound Quality. This acoustic guitar from Seagull really does produce a uniquely brilliant sound. It’s a warm and balanced sound with bass that’s rich but certainly not “boomy”. On the other side of the spectrum, the treble of this guitar is bright and lively, but without sounding “tinny” as some other acoustic guitars do. The harmonics are great and carry a long and effective sustain.
- Distinctive Tone. The Seagull Entourage Rustic has an incredibly distinctive tone … this is a great feature of this acoustic guitar as it really does it make it stand out from the crowd. This great tone makes the guitar very unique and as such should make it very appealing to people who want an acoustic guitar which differs slightly in tone from the norm.
- Aesthetically Beautiful. This acoustic guitar has a truly beautiful uniqueness about it and features a great finish which really sets this guitar off. The neck is made out of maple with a rosewood fingerboard, while there’s a solid cedar top and wild cherry laminate sides and back.
More Features of the Seagull Entourage Rustic
As I’m sure most of you who have read some of my reviews before will be aware by now that I usually like to split the lists of features in the reviews into more than one part. This is because reading one long and unbroken list of features can be a bit overwhelming and frankly a little bit annoying as well – and this is certainly not a good state to be in when you’re trying to gain an understanding of a guitar. So, to put it simply I split the list of features into two parts for the sake of readability. Without further ado, here’s the second half of this guitars feature list;
- Integrated Set Neck System. The Seagull Entourage Rustic features a new integrated neck system which provides several benefits as compared to other neck setups. This system increases stability while also reducing twisting and warping due to climate changes.
- Seagull Slim Neck. This acoustic guitar comes with a slim neck which features a 1.72 inch nut. This means that the Seagull Entourage Rustic should be very appealing to players who are more accustomed to playing using a traditional nut width.
- Excellent Finishing Touches. There are several really nice finishing touches which really make this guitar. There’s an arched rosette around the sound hole which not only looks fantastic but also adds to the structural integrity of the entire body of the guitar. As well as this there’s also cream double binding around the outside of the body, a tusq nut and a full compensated saddle.
- Extremely Well Made. The build quality of this acoustic guitar is really great – you don’t get any of the common and annoying flaws like the frets sticking out. The neck is also very smooth and straight with no warping and as well as this the action should be perfect straight out of the box.
A Seagull Entourage Rustic Review
To begin this Seagull Entourage Rustic Review, it’s not an unfair statement to say that the customers on Amazon absolutely adore this acoustic guitar. There hasn’t been loads and loads of reviews and ratings but of the customers who have left reviews, every single one of them granted this guitar a 5-star rating. That’s pretty amazing if you ask me – that not one person could find a single reason to knock this guitar down to 4-stars. A flawless record, if you will. I think this will pretty much set the tone for this review as there really is nothing negative which I can mention, so let’s get to it.
The sound of this guitar is really fantastic and the customers just love it. You sometimes hear of people saying things like “this is an excellent guitar – for this price” or “you really are getting a lot with this guitar – for the money that you’re spending”. Well in terms of how this guitar sounds, most customers have said that it just sounds excellent … not that it sounds excellent for a guitar of this price – just that it sounds purely fantastic, regardless of the price. This is quite an achievement for an acoustic guitar which costs just a little over $300.
I’d like to continue this Seagull Entourage Rustic Review by sticking with the sheer quality of the sound which this guitar produces. The tone as mentioned above is very unique and indeed seems to be one of the biggest high points of this guitar. Customers have mentioned how where some other acoustic guitars sound a bit “generic” this one really sings when you play it and definitely produces a sound with a tone which is truly unique.
The next thing to mention in this Seagull Entourage Rustic Review is just how well built these guitars are. The quality control during the manufacturing process seems to be most excellent as most customers have had nothing but praise to give for the solid and steadfast construction of these acoustic guitars. Some of them who are very experienced with guitars have even said how they think you would never outgrow this guitar or never have to replace it due to degradation of the sound – and in fact many of them state that this guitar will actually sound even better after a little aging.
In conclusion to this Seagull Entourage Rustic Review it must be said that you can’t really go wrong with this acoustic guitar. It is perhaps a little bit too expensive for a complete beginner which doesn’t want to invest too heavily while still just starting out at learning the guitar. However for intermediate and even advanced players who are looking for a plain and simple great acoustic guitar then this is definitely one to be considered. The Seagull Entourage Rustic looks great, has a fantastically unique sound and will stand up to the test of time while also being of an overall comparable quality to much more expensive guitars – you can’t really go wrong!
