Do you think that Seagull guitars will appreciate with time? I mean like 10 to 20 years.

They well built, good sounding, reliable, production-line guitars made in Canada. Mostly given the underlined. I don't think so.

I doubt it.

Possibly some of Godin's rare, expensive, limited quantity models...if they produce something of that nature. Even then, I would expect it to hold its value but I would not think that they would increase to any real extent.

You can find used ones at reasonable prices.
Great bang for the buck if you're looking for a above average campfire guitar.
Including the rest of the Godin acoustic line (S&P, Norman, Art & Luthier).

I have a late 70s Norman acoustic. It looks great, and plays beautifully. It's worth about the same as it was 40 years ago. The Seagull will be the same...

I agree that their value won't increase - we live in an era where there are lots of high quality guitars available at reasonable prices. The old guitars that people cherish so much were the exception, not the rule. Plus simple demographics will probably result in a glut of old guitars in the near future.

The first Seagulls are probably 40 years old now - I don't see a lot of hype for them.

Sometimes value isn't about money.

Sometimes it's a memory we want to hang onto.

If inflation stays in line, no. If inflation goes crazy, yes. That will be the only way these guitars will increase monetarily. They are good guitars, just not collector's items.

I have a 6 string and a 12 string Seagull acoustic and their both great guitars but as others have said, they will not increase in value. The market will forever be flooded by great guitars.

Just curious which 2 you have. I have a Seagull S6 +C and a Seagull Maritime w/ Spruce top 12 string gloss. Love these guitars. Great sounding at a reasonable (for me) price. I'm not one to worry about increase in monetary value though. The value is in the sound of an older, well played guitar anyways.

I have a Performer Mini Jumbo CW GT QII (model 29334) 6 string and a Coastline S12 Cedar
