Electric, acoustic and synth sound all in one.

The Godin xtSA Flame Electric Guitar's sound power begins with three distinct voices: electric guitar, acoustic guitar and synth controller. The xtSA delivers big time electric sounds via the Godin humbucker-single-humbucker pickup configuration. Thanks to a special 5-way switch setup, extra meaty humbucker tones co-exist with glassy split-coil sounds in the second and fourth positions.

Turn down the electric output and raise the volume on the RMC transducer saddles and the xtSA sounds like an authentic acoustic guitar. The acoustic voice of the xtSA is enhanced by an onboard preamp with a three-way graphic EQ. The two outputs are set up so that the electric and acoustic voices can be blended in the guitar using a single patch cord or at the amp/mixer using both outputs.

The icing on the xtSA cake comes in the form of its synth tracking. As with all Godin synth-ready instruments, a built-in 13-pin connector provides direct access to all Roland GR-Series synths as well as most other 13-pin devices.

All of this sound power would be a lot less interesting if the guitar didn't feel great. Thanks to the same 25" scale mahogany neck used on the Godin flagship LGX-SA guitar, this is a very comfortable guitar to play. The ebony fingerboard is shaped with Godin's ergocut technique and equipped with medium jumbo frets. The body is made from a silverleaf maple center with poplar wings and decorated with a figured maple veneer on top.

Includes a gig bag.

Comments about Godin xtSA Flame Electric Guitar:

I had a Strat for years and loved the single-coil sound but was never sold on the stability of the tuning of the Fender. After seeing the online demos and reviews I went for the xtSA to get the versatility of its configuration. I already own a Godin 5th Avenue and was blown away by the quality of the instrument and the perfect neck mechanics. The xtSA is very impressive in appearance, feel, and sound with perfect neck mechanics just like the 5th Avenue. The range of tones that this thing can produce is astounding. I had an initial fright because the Piezo transducer under the 'B' string sounded defective. It had no bass response whatsoever and I was afraid that I had a defective instrument. An email to Godin Customer Service produced a reply suggesting that I clean the string and transducer with isopropyl alcohol. That solved the issue and the guitar sings. This is one of those instruments that you just hate to put up. You want to keep playing it and playing it. Well worth even the full retail price.
