Guitar/percussion/keys/brass and woodwinds/backing pads
Church music today is essentially "pop" music, so while nothing replaces my HD28, I do appreciate the flexibility my Godin ACS Slim allows me.
Pro: Construction, attractive instrument, well made. Great value for the price.
Cons: She's a bit heavy, suggest a 2.5 inch strap at least.
Have owned and used GK 3 equipped Strat and a GK 2 unit on an Ibanez. Godin tracks much better. close [-]
by Wesley from San Francisco, Ca, USAPerfect, nothing to complain about. The only thing I have to say is the 5th string broke by itself after 2 weeks. I wish it lasts a bit longer.

The New Classic Guitar
by Don Munson from Charlotte, NCThe only reason that I gave the 4.5 rating is that I'm rather new to the nylon string instruments. Someone with more experience in the "world of nylon" will have to weigh in on their thoughts concerni... read more [+]ng this family of guitars. I have played solid bodied steel-stringed guitars for over 50 years now, and I can honestly give a fair rating to those. This is a different instrument. I can say that, personally, I think this guitar is absolutely perfect for what it is.

Mine weighs almost 7 pounds. Heavy for a classic, normal for an electric. It feels solid, and plays that way too. Tuning is very stable and the action is better than I expected for a nylon strung instrument. My cedar top is darker than the photos indicated, but still very natural for that wood. The guitar can easily be heard if you want to practice un-plugged. Similar to a Telecaster in that form of resonance. The neck responds nicely to truss rod adjustments, so do it in small increment.
The active EQ lets you cover a lot of sonic territory without approaching the amplifier. Keep the guitar's volume at the mid point and save yourself some low end growl, that I'm finding is present in even the better acoustic guitar amplifiers.
The tuners are, as I mentioned quite solid, and they are something to see also. Gold with black etching. The controls are in a convenient position. You can see your settings at a glance without having to re-position the guitar.
One of my concerns over the years, in dealing with piezo loaded guitars, is that the volume balance from string to string was often uneven. The fact that Godin's design gives each string a separate saddle, may have something to do with the fact that each string has a definite voice. The result here is a very rich, acoustic, sound. both for when each string is played individually or when chording. Pretty much what I was hoping for.
I am finding this guitar to be somewhat addictive. It's not been back in the bag since it got here 5 days ago.
Overall, I am enjoying this experience. And, I have to give credit to Greg, my technical adviser at Sweetwater, for his patients in leading me to the right guitar.

Good quality instrument
by Bill from New OrleansThe first few days with the new Slimline ACS were awkward. Having played steel string low action guitars all my life there was a learning curve involved. That's not a guitar issue but a guitarist issu... read more [+]e. The instrument is well made and the fit and finish are flawless. If playing through an amp PLEASE, use a quality, wide frequency range amp or the sound will be muddy, otherwise the instrument comes through loud and clear with good tone and accurate acoustic sound. The slim necki allows nice playability but you must remember it is NOT an electric guitar neck and there are some differences. Out of the box I did have to adjust the action but the truss rod is easy to manipulate and the neck responds quickly. Overall this is a great buy at this price. close [-]
