East meets West-you win.
In a nutshell, the Godin A11 Glissentar Electric Guitar is an 11-string, fretless, acoustic-electric instrument, strung with nylon strings and tuned to standard guitar tuning. Made to allow effortless mixing of Eastern and Western music, the Godin Glissentar is a creative blending of a guitar and an oud. All of its basic physical features-scale length, body size, depth, fingerboard radius, and string height-are standard guitar dimensions. The Eastern influence in the Glissentar A11 comes from the oud, an 11-string fretless lute still in use today throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Adapting to this new instrument is actually a great deal easier than it appears, with its familiar guitar-like feel and easily visible side position markers. The Glissentar A11 opens the door to microtonal playing as well as some incredible and unique sounds for adventurous musicians.
