Godin A6 Ultra (Natural SG)
by Mike Billings from Cheney, WAWhat a guitar! I sold a Taylor T-5 a couple of years ago and missed the versatility it had. However, I didn't like the tonal "challenge" it had with the high E string so I started looking at alterna... read more [+]tives. The Godin A6 Ultra really intrigued me and I took the plunge. WHAT A GUITAR! It's incredibly fluid to play and the sound I get when I plug into both an acoustic and electric amp blows me away -- very full and satisfying.

I played this side-by-side with a friend who has a Koa T-5 over his amp system and the Godin put the T-5 to shame -- and at a quarter of the price. The humbucker and the under-saddle transducer working together are an indescribably potent combination.
This is now my "go to" guitar for everything from folk to acoustic rock and blues. It even sounds great when I play jazz.
In summary, this is one fantastic guitar! close [-]
by Cash from St. Pete, FLWhere do I start. It arrived yesterday and I couldn't put it down. It handles any type of music you want, and the sound quality is amazing. The workmanship was etter than expected, and the playability... read more [+] is great. Someone put some thought into this fretboard. It plays easy like an electric, while still being able to get the sound quality of a good acoustic. If you need a very versital acoustic electric, this is the guitar for you. It can do anything! close [-]

A good marriage of an acoustic and electric guitar
by André Germain from Wainfleet, Ontario, CanadaI was looking for a thin-bodied acoustic guitar because a shoulder injury makes it too painful to play my full-bodied acoustics. After doing a lot of research online, I decided to give the A6 Ultra a ... read more [+]try. I went to a local music store and gave one a good workout for about an hour and was amazed at its playability. Through a Fender acoustic amp, although it didn't sound exactly like a good full-bodied acoustic such as a Martin or a Gibson, it had its own sound, blending its under-the-saddle piezo with the humbucker. It also had a real acoustic guitar feel when finger-picked. At the same time, it had the playability of an electric guitar. I've tried finger-picking my Strat and my LP but that has always felt weird, not at all like picking my favourite Armbrust custom-built cutaway.

A bonus is that the Godin is surprisingly loud when played unplugged.
The A6 Ultra incorporates both a piezo and a humbucker pickup wired through a pre-amp/EQ with volume and tone controls for both pickups. When using the "blend" output jack and playing through a good sound system, by fiddling with these controls, I was able to get a sound that literally blew me away! Okay, not a true acoustic sound like my Armbrust of Gibson SJ25, but a warm round full sound with all the definition I hoped for with chords strummed or picked and with individual notes just sparkling at the high registers and yet well defined at the bass end.
It is possible, using both output jacks, to have the output from the piezo going to one amp while the output from the humbucker is sent to another amp, handy for recording, I would think, but that's not something I'm into right now. Still, nice to know that option is there.
I've got the natural satin finish model. I love the fact that there's nothing hiding the natural good looks of the real cedar top. I've never liked gaudy acoustic guitars. The shape of the body and headstock are classic in their simple yet aesthetic lines.
Basically, this axe feels like an acoustic when finger-picked and yet plays like a well-set-up electric such as a strat or tele. The best of both worlds.
Feels good and solid overall although I've read that some have had problems with the tuning machines. Haven't had mine long enough yet to give an honest opinion.
A well-made (Canadian, eh?) guitar which fills my needs admirably. Worth every penny I paid for it.
I'd almost given up playing my acoustic guitars (my first love) because of this shoulder injury. This guitar has made it possible for me to get back to doing what I love best, finger-picking folk/folk blues and open/modal tuning instrumentals. Can't put a price on that! close [-]
