At the intersection of original design and quality materials, you will find the Seagull Uke Nylon SG Burst EQ. This fun-to-play nylon Uke is made of a one-piece solid maple body with a solid spruce top; a wood combination that, along with the classic tone of the nylon strings, creates a smooth sound with plenty of tonal definition. And thanks to the zero fret concept, where the strings sit directly and evenly on the fret (which acts as the nut), it is easy to maintain a better output balance between open and fretted strings across the fretboard. The Seagull Uke Steel SG also features a Burnt Umber semi-gloss finish, open-gear tuners, and custom Seagull electronics with easily accessible volume and tone controls at the lower bout. The Seagull Uke Nylon SG Burst maintains a more conventional nylon-string feel, but with a modern take on design and playability.

I went into the store for a Martin Uke and tried this one on a whim. I went back and forth for a while and ended up leaving with both. This is a wonderful but very distinct uke that just stands out in some really cool ways. Officially the Scale length is a soprano, but it feels almost like it's somewhere between a concert and a tenor. The fretboard doesn't feel cramped like many sopranos, the tone is much fuller with a great low end similar to a tenor. It's not as bright and chimey as many smaller ukes, the martin I bought is very bright, but this one has a darkness to it. It feels more bluesy or jazzy than a lot of ukes and I just love that it's a really unique item. Plug it in and it opens a world of possibilities. The Seagull is made in Canada by Godin which is awesome. I also have the Godin Multiuke and I wasn't sure if this being significantly cheaper would live up to the same standards. But the factory setup is great. The intonation and action are perfect. All the little details are there. I view this as a smaller fully acoustic little brother to my Godin. It's just really neat.
