No ordinary classical guitar, this Godin boasts a chambered maple body and koa top for a unique feel, and a 13-pin output for a wealth of guitar synth tones.

Overall: Bought this for my brother, a professional guitarist. Already got him a Godin xtSA, which he uses extensively. Everything he does is through the Roland GR-55. The Latest one, in Koa, sounds wonderful unamplified. Typical excellent Godin quality. Nothing amiss, the neck was PERFECT, more like a classical acoustic than an electric. Nylon strings obviously. A completely unique tonal palette is produced by this guitar. Now even I am looking at other Godin's for my own use (there is a great distance between my skill level and my brother) but even I can make this work or art sing. Highly recommended. Great job, Godin!

Overall: The Godin ACS-SA KOA Classical Guitar gives you a lot more than what I expected! I plugged it in and then spent the whole day playing it, as I just couldn't stop! And that was even before I tried it with the Roland GR-55 synth that this wonderful guitar comes ready to play with. Every note is true and pitch perfect. I love this guitar and would recommend it to anyone who plays professionally.

Overall: This is a precisely built, high-end professional guitar. The combined proportions of neck width, thickness, and radius indicate a very well designed instrument, with an effortless, yet accurate feel. It's capable of beautiful tones, and it's also capable of many subtleties, which I believe is due to the precision of the design and construction.I'm putting in three times as many hours playing since I got this thing, it's easier to come up with something that sounds good and seems worth pursuing, creatively, when you can get so may noble and upstanding tones from a guitar. As the only caveat I would say that no one should expect to "plug and play" this instrument. It has a very good if basic eq on board, and you may need more eq, as well as other processing to make this guitar work for you; it has serious flexibility, but it has to be dialed in to your setup. Once that is done, you will love this guitar, I reckon.
