Tuning Made Easy
You may have wondered why the Seagull S6 acoustic guitar is that even after you have carefully tuned each string, it is often necessary to make further adjustments and go back on a few of the strings. This is because the neck moves slightly as you change the tension of the strings.
Therefore you don’t just tune the strings you “balance” the neck at the same time. The tapered headstock on the Seagull S6 acoustic guitar provides straight string pull, which minimizes the neck twisting effect. This ensures that it will be easier to get your guitar in tune and keep it that way. This is particularly advantageous for the growing ranks of players who use open tunings.
The Seagull S6 Neck
A slim, comfortable neck not only accommodates playing all over the neck but also reduces fatigue. On the other hand, the vibration of the neck is an important contributor to the sound of the guitar and if the neck is too slim the guitar will suffer in the sound department.
Seagull S6 double Action Truss System
In the event of a neck becoming back-bowed, the traditional fix is to loosen the truss rod and allow the string tension to pull the neck back to its ideal form. Most guitars employ an adjustable metal rod inside the neck called a truss rod. The truss rod is typically used to straighten the neck when it becomes slightly bowed from string tension and changes in humidity.
Unfortunately this doesn’t always work which is why we adapted a new double-action truss rod in Seagull necks. The new rod bends in both directions, which provides unprecedented control over the neck whether it is under-bowed or over-bowed.
The Seagull S6 original acoustic guitar neck attachment system insures consistent neck pitch. It also produces the added advantage of a superior neck/body energy transfer because the neck is attached to the body with a clean wood-to-wood connection. There is no glue to impede the vibration between the heel of the neck and the guitars body.
