Montreal based Godin Guitars is very pleased to introduce a new addition to its Seagull line-up of acoustic instruments, the Seagull Merlin Natural SG. The Merlin will be making its official trade show debut at the upcoming Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA from January 23-26th, 2014.
Crafted in LaPatrie Quebec, Canada and inspired by the dulcimer, the Seagull Merlin is a very portable & compact 4-string diatonic acoustic instrument that is simply fun to play and very hard to put down. This instrument was designed to introduce & stimulate people of all ages (some of whom may not necessarily be players) to the joy of creating & playing music. This is further accentuated by the Merlin’s diatonic scale, in which the player will find it nearly impossible to hit an “off note” on the fingerboard.
The Seagull Merlin Natural SG is available with the option of a solid spruce top or solid mahogany top, both with satin oil finishes. It features a 'mustache' style Tusq bridge & compensated saddle by Graphtech, a 3-piece rock maple body with drive-through neck design and vintage style open-geared tuners.
Whether they are just starting out on a stringed instrument or are a professional musician, players from all levels will find the Merlin to be an attractive addition to their musical palette. This is especially true with a look at its incredibly affordable North American price tag of $129 street!!
