Brand-new Godin xtSA. This is an SF (slightly flawed), discounted guitar with minor cosmetic flaws on the back of the body and on the back of the neck. Our camera could not pick up the body blemishes, please see the closeup pic for the neck blemish.
A jack-of-all-trades and master of all of them, the xtSA’s incredible sound power begins with three distinct voices: electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and synth.
The xtSA delivers big-time electric sounds via the Godin humbucker-single-humbucker pickup configuration and thanks to a special 5-way switch setup, extra meaty humbucker tones co-exist with glassy split-coil sounds in the second and forth positions. Turn down the electric output and raise the volume on the LR Baggs transducer saddles and the xtSA becomes an incredibly authentic-sounding ‘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 while using a single patch cord or at the amp/mixer via both outputs. Also, the xtSA’s synth tracking, which simply put, is the best in the business. As with all of 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 but the xtSA sure does, thanks to the same 25½” scale and mahogany neck used on the Godin LGX-SA flagship guitar. The Richlite® fingerboard is shaped with Godin’s ergocut technique and equipped with medium jumbo frets. The body is made of a silver leaf maple center with poplar wings and is topped with a Premium grade veneer of highly figured Koa.
