In 1982 Robert Godin produced the first Seagull guitars in the Village of LaPatrie, Quebec. The concept for the Seagull guitar was to take the essential components of the best hand-crafted guitars (such as solid tops and beautiful finishes) and build these features into guitars that could be priced within the reach of working musicians.
All of our guitars are Made In Canada. Being able to say these words and truthfully mean it, is something we are very proud of in this day and age. All of our Seagull guitars are made in Canada from start to finish, by sustainably sourced wood from our own backyard in a controlled manner.
It's in the small village of LaPatrie in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, where for more than a quarter century the crafting of Seagull guitars has been a true passion for the many devoted guitar makers who call LaPatrie home. Today, LaPatrie has a population of about 475 and about half of these people are guitar builders. These folks take a great deal of pride in the guitars they build. From our award winning S6 Original, to our new Burnt Umber colors and to the exquisite sound of our Artist Series guitars, Seagull continues to make believers out of players the world over.
We are committed to sustainably sourcing all of our wood and continuously strive to reduce our overall environmental impact as a company. By having our facilities powered by hydroelectricity, to using only reclaimed wood and working with forestries that impose strict replanting models, every little positive initiative helps develop a better world of tomorrow.
A direct result of our goal to continue to evolve and create positive impact, is the introduction of our Tonewood Sourcing Team, a group focused on sustainably sourcing wood and the launch of our Natural Elements Series of guitars. These instruments are a wise environmental choice offering a sound alternative to imported exotic woods. The use of reclaimed logs further helps to decrease the impact of deforestation.
