Custom RMC electronics Direct control of guitar synths

The Godin ACS-SA Koa blends classical guitar concepts with elements of solid body design. The incredibly comfortable neck from the Multiac Nylon is used here with a Maple body and a stunning, highly-figured koa wood top. Although the body is chambered, response from the top is more typical of a solid body design than that of a traditional acoustic guitar. This design results in an instrument that is virtually free of feedback, making it easy to use even when the band gets loud.

The engine in both the ACS-SA & ACS-SA Slim includes individual transducer saddles powered by a customized preamp system from the RMC Pickup Company. This system not only produces superb amplified sound, but also produces a hexaphonic output through a 13-pin connector enabling direct access to Roland GR-Series guitar synthesizers.

"Godin ACS koa"
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.
