Comfortable playing a steel-string guitar but looking to add a bit of that nylon-string flavor to your repertoire? Look no further!

Godin nylon slim

Firstly, what an amazing store! The persons that assisted me on my purchase both online and at the store were really great and knowledgable. They permitted me to try out several Godin ACS slims that they had in stock so I could pick out the one that felt right for me. The quality of the guitar is excellent; from the satin finish, fret job, action (this particular one) and components. This nylon string electric sounds great amplified. Not really an acoustic instrument (you're not buying this for that). Neck shape and action is pretty comfortable for me being mainly an electric guitar player. Super satisfied with Sweetwater and this instrument!

What a fun guitar

I enjoy playing this guitar as much as any I own. Harmonics are spot on and a pleasure to play. I have other nylon string guitars. However, this is the one I play the most. My Sweetwater sales rep said I would love this guitar. He was right. It is just a lot of fun to play.

Excellent guitar and very well set up when received

I have bought numerous items from Sweetwater including this guitar. The process for purchase is easy, swift and the customer is always right. The packaging is very protective for shipping and the guitar arrives without any damage. The multi point check as always covers all aspects and the guitar was ready to use right out of the box. The "slim" is a very unique guitar, easy to play and with the multi faceted outputs provides a world of sounds when used with GR-55. I absolutely love it. Godin makes a quality product and I have no trouble recommending it to anyone. My customer service rep, Josh Estock, was helpful, informative and always quick to respond to my questions and inquiries. Have purchased items from other "online" dealers, but none compare to the service I have received from Sweetwater. Give Josh a call, he knows his subjects and can answer almost any inquiry you pose.

UNIQUE I did not know what too expect I could not find one in any music store to play.Went to my Sweetwater and its home!The combination of solid body nylon strings eq synth. WOW if your a creative person your going to love this beautiful crafted guitar. It sounds unbeliveable pure tones. I use my Roland GR-55 synthesizer perfact match for the ACS-SA slim.

Godin ACS-SA Slim

Beautiful, beautiful guitar. In both sound and looks and feel. Fit and finish is excellent. Tone felt slightly muddy in the mids at higher volume (read: at gig volume - there was some additional EQ/sound shaping I felt I needed). LR Braggs Powered DI box solved this and kept the tone defined well and crisp - without the muddiness. (note: single note classical players - less of an issue... but bear down hard on chords - you'll hear what I mean). With the additional presence that the LR Braggs brings - this is now my go to guitar for coffee shop gigs and acoustic style recordings. Tried 13 pin access to a GR-55 at a music store... VERY cool - just not sure how practical some of those tones will be in a live setting... so I'm 1/4"-ing it for now :) Backpack case is a nice one - but a hard case would have been preferred. Neck plays very intuitively coming from primarily playing an early eighties Les Paul. Intonation is DEAD ON. VERY, VERY happy I purchased this guitar!
