Huge Array of Amazing Guitar Tones!If you love the combination of classic electric guitar design and a multitude of great tones, then you'll love Godin's amazing LGX-SA solidbody. This guitar starts with incredible electric tones, thanks to its pair of humbucking pickups. An acoustic transducer output lets you blend in stunning acoustic-style sounds. That's quite a versatile guitar! But, believe it or not, the LGX-SA is only getting started! This beautiful instrument's bridge-mounted transducers send six separate signals (one for each string) to the dedicated synth output, so you get total control. The LGX-SA's sonic possibilities are only limited by your imagination!
Godin made the LGX-SA from the ground up to sound great, and it definitely delivers. This gorgeous guitar has a mahogany body with a beauty of a figured maple top, for that magical balance of sustain and snap. The LGX-SA's mahogany neck is fast and comfortable, and it's topped with an exquisite ebony fingerboard. This guitar isn't just amazingly versatile; it's incredibly classy.
Since the early 1970s, Godin has been crafting pro-quality instruments loaded with innovations. Whether you're a session pro or a recreational player, Godin has a guitar built to suit you perfectly. You'll love the clean lines, exceptionally comfortable playing feel, and exquisite tone you get from a Godin guitar. You get it all: classic craftsmanship, modern features, and amazing tonality. Here's your chance to get your hands on a pro-quality guitar!

My ultimate guitar
by Mark Evans from Chicago, ILI was extremely amazed with the tones of this 3 voice guitar having never played Ebony over Rosewood. It sounds amazing! I like to mix the acoustic sound with the humbuckers for a wall of sound that i... read more [+]s very impressive.

The neck is to die for. The best I've ever played, and I've played a lot of different brands. The quality of this guitar is just there in every way. I know it's hard to find one to try, but you should make an effort to get your hands on one before you spend thousands more. It's that good. close [-]
A lot to like in a moderately priced package
by Martin Goldstein from Cheshire, CTMy search for alternative guitars that could feed a guitar synth such as the Roland GR55 led me to the Godin LGX-SA. I already owned a Godin Acoustisonic guitar that I held in fairly high regard. I ... read more [+]did my research online with respect to reviews, Youtube assessments and Ebay sales and seller commentary. Overall the picture looked pretty rosy. Lots of features at a price point well below 2K if you accept are OK with an AA Maple top. (as opposed to AAAA, not sold by Sweetwater) When you seek to purchase a guitar like this, (new), it will likely be based on a photo since the major chains don't seem to stock these guitars. (a Canadian product, BTW) Since Sweetwater had them, and offered a generious return policy, I felt there wasn't much to lose and took the plunge. I should mention, not only did I want synth access (SA) I also "needed" a blue guitar to add to my collection. (which includes 3 PRS models) The first one that I received played beautifully out of the box but had some surface and finish flaws that were minor, but bothersome to me. (bleeding of top color into maple trim, a small scratch on the lower bout) not bad but not typical of an out of the box experence. When I informed Sweetwater, they asked no questions, apologized very nicely, and without my asking, put a brand new replacement in the mail the same day they received my email with all shipping expenses on them. The replacement was much more to my liking....providing sufficient eye candy to quell the desire for "blue".

They trusted me to ship the original back as opposed to first having to return it before receiving the replacement. I guess they value their customers.
As for the guitar sound set, beautiful and varied tones abound. As for the communicating with my GR55, safe to say, best in class...virtually no lag when producing midi sounds. The ability to mix three volume levels (humbuckers, piezo and synth sounds) from the guitar itself, I believe, is a one of a kind control set.
The LGX is also beautifully contoured making it very comfortable to hold against your body.
As for looks, the LGX is elegantly understated. Subtle, raised contours of the carved maple top keep it interesting to the eye when compared to a flat top solid body guitar. If you don't care for blue, they offer this ax in a cognac burst finish as well.
As for playability....nice low action and a comforatble ebony fretboard with seemingly just the right amount of curvature to it. I took to it immediately
All things considered, I know a keeper when I see it. This one will stay in the collection indefinitely.
Hope this helps. close [-]
Godin LGX-SA (Trans Blue Flame AA)
by Martin Lim from Daly City, CA, United Stateswhether an instrument is good on not based on 3 main factors:

1. the appearance
2. the materials
3. the sound that it produces
In terms of appearance, people like the colo... read more [+]r; they said "a rare color". For me, I'm stick to sun-burst color, but current trans blue has not been bothering me that much; the finish is good; that is all it matters.
The materials used are in good qualities also; I have no problem with that.
The sound it produce is also as good as my old PRS hollow II; since the bridges are different, they are producing their own favorable sweet tones.
Over all, I have no complaints! I'm happy with it! close [-]
