With its comfortable playing through body neck and flat top this acoustic mandolin is unique. The Seagull S8 Mandolin EQ in Sunburst has been crafted here in Canada. Brilliant acoustic tones are delivered thanks to a solid sitka spruce top. This has been paired up with Canadian wild cherry for the back and sides and finished with a semi gloss custom polished finish. The S8 gets a desirable upgrade in 2017 with the inclusion of a Seagull proprietary preamp, with volume and tone controls conveniently placed on the mandolin's top. The Sunburst Seagull S8 Mandolin EQ is a beautifully crafted instrument with its own unique design.
