12-string Built for Performance

Godin's A12 12-string acoustic-electric guitar is a great choice for players looking for a comfortable and natural-sounding 12-string for live performance. The A12's maple body is chambered and features a solid cedar top that reacts to your playing the same way a traditional acoustic instrument would. The maple neck is carved with special attention being paid to playability and comfort. And Godin's instantly recognizable pickup and preamp system graces the upper bout of the instrument, while providing the A12 with a woody and natural acoustic sound through any amplification.

Unique construction

Godin's chambered solidbody acoustic-electric instruments have been extremely popular with performing and touring musicians for years. The A12 12-string acoustic-electric guitar's thinner dimensions, resistance to feedback, player-friendly neck carves, and naturally resonating top deliver the best of acoustic and solidbody performance. And only time-proven tonewoods are used in its construction. Its book-matched cedar top caps its 2" silver leaf maple body, which boasts two expertly designed chambers. With the A12, you'll enjoy acoustic tones with solidbody performance.

"Easiest-playing 12-string guitar on the market."

Godin takes a great deal of care in the design of their guitars' neck profiles, and the A12 12-string acoustic-electric guitar is no exception. Its neck is carved from a stable piece of maple and is crafted to feel as comfortable for predominantly electric players as it does for seasoned 12-string acoustic guitarists. In fact, Godin proudly states that the A12 is the "easiest-playing 12-string guitar on the market."

Custom Godin electronics

As soon as you lay your eyes on a Godin acoustic-electric instrument, you know it. A large part of that is their identifiable low-profile preamp system that is situated on the instrument's top. Not only does this system offer guitars like the A12 a unique look, but the custom Godin electronics sound very natural and realistic. The under-saddle transducer and easy-to-use controls utilize the guitar's natural acoustic properties to deliver the tone of a much larger acoustic instrument, while fighting trouble feedback when performing.

  • Solidbody acoustic-electric 12-string guitar
  • Maple body features 2 chambers for enhanced resonance

Great 12 String!

The Godin A12 is by far the easiest 12 string to play on the market. The tone is really full for a solid body. I tried a bunch of guitars before I tried the A12 and this blew everything else away. The only thing I'd change about the guitar is the back cover of it. I broke a string and the end of the sting fell down inside of the guitar. On a typical dreadnought or electric it wouldn't be an issue. The end of the string would turn your guitar into a maraca or fall out completely. The end fell into the 1/4" jack and crackled through the end of my show until I could get home and take the screws out, remove the back cover and then I found the string end in the jack. I just ended up leaving the back cover off that sits right under the saddle and when I broke another string the end fell right out of the guitar. If the guitar had a back cover like the battery box has it would solve the problem all together.
