Excellent Guitar

Great acoustic and electric tone. Light weight is a plus. Thanks to Sweetwater and Dave Walent for their usual great service and price.

Loved it the moment I put my hands on it!

Thought long and hard about this purchase - so glad I did. The quality and construction of this Godin is nothing but flawless. I love the 'C' shaped mahogany neck, the thinnest of the body and the electronics of this model. The finish to the top is perfection, as it the choice of cedar. Unplugged it resonates beautifully, and when plugged in, it's sonically exceptional. If I had any regrets, it's that I should have bought the Koa top version.

A good marriage of an acoustic and electric guitar

I 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 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!

Godin A6 Ultra Black HG

I've bought several guitars from Sweetwater and sales engineer/rep Philip Courtney. The service is outstanding. I like the fact that when I call Philip knows immediately who it is along with my history and preferences.I learned about Godin after speaking with Heath Wright/ Richochet about his.Wow, Godin didn't disappoint. This guitar sounds fantastic. I received it a few days ago and gigged with it once in an acoustic duo. It was killer. I use the one output and blend in just a tad of the humbucker for some added punch. This guitar sounds better as an acoustic guitar than a lot of acoustic guitars.I will be adding a natural in the future to handle alternate tuning needs.Godin, Sweetwater, Philip Courtney A++++

Godin A6 Ultra (Natural SG)

What 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 alternatives. 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!
