Godin

First, hats off to Sweetwater. Customer service/support the best, bar none. Paul is great to deal with, thanx Paul. My first Godin..!!! What a beautiful guitar, to the last detail... Sound, I use a Fishman Mini, what beautiful tone this guitar has. Straight through the amp with no inline devices the tonal span is quite wide and diverse at both bottom and top end of it's frequency ability. Quality, impeccable, from hardware to finish and fit. I own several brand name guitars and the quality of this guitar is light years ahead of them, sorry Gibson/Warwick/Fender.The customer service from Sweetwater has severely diminished my purchases from other stores both online and store front.Thanx again to Paul and Sweetwater, Happy Holidays..

Godin Nylon Multiac

I did a 13-song session with an older blueburst one of these. We recorded it with a Yamaha fx/preamp through a Soundcraft mixer direct to ProTools. Amazing, detailed, accurate: all that and more. I'd recommend one of these to anyone who's serious about tracking nylon-string tones!

Great Tone

I have owned this model for 4 years. It is the only nylon string guitar I could stand to play. The sound is excellent when used in conjunction with a Fishman Aura pedal it is flawless, no piezo quack! The guitar is very comfortable to play, the slim neck plays like butter! Using a midi interface has open up a new world of sound. I use an axon guitar synth and a Roland Sonic Cell, the layering of sounds with the nylon sounds produces absolutely huge fat sounds. If ever lost I would replace it immediately after the morning and severe depression sure to follow. This is a great guitar!

Excellent product for the money

Good quality instrument. Plays well. Good finish. Only reason I gave it a 4.5 is because I had to adjust two strings at the nut. Way too high.Easy fix if you know what you're doing. Otherwise, a very good instrument.

Ideal for Praise and Worship settings

Reason for purchasing: Andy Bitler and the Sweetwater team. Great buying experience.Setting:Church. Five piece praise team at a military base chapel. Duty calls members away on a regular basis. This instrument (paired with the GR gear) allows me to cover a lot of ground and thus maintain consistency of sound. Use:Guitar/percussion/keys/brass and woodwinds/backing padsChurch 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.Comparison:Have owned and used GK 3 equipped Strat and a GK 2 unit on an Ibanez. Godin tracks much better.
