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.

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.

Very Happy

I own a 96 Strat Deluxe that I bought new and became my dream guitar. For 20 years I've been searching for the next guitar to put along side of her. I thought I wanted a Les Paul and tried many. I have a Godin 5th Avenue that I love so I knew their guitars were underrated and priced well. I decided to give this beauty a try and have not been able to keep it out of my hands since it arrived. I also purchased the Roland GR-55 and a hard shell case although the gig bag is pretty nice indeed. I'm not going to go into why this guitar feels awesome to me because we are all different. But I can tell you this is one awesome guitar. Love the blue. And Jeff Barnett and his assistant Katie are the absolute best in the business. They cannot be beat.

Very Nice

Having never tried one before I was a bit skeptical. Nobody near the Blue Ridge Mountains had such a thing. "Sorry, We don't stock them thar Canadian bacon gee tarrrzzz." But on the vg forum people raved about them. So I called my favorite Sweetwater Sales Engineer, Mr. Patrick Dennis. Ext 1379"Send me the blue trans flame."After waiting an eternity, it arrived, he sent me pics even before I received it. A very nice Sweetwater touch indeed. Just to make you drool.All I have to say is buy one, they are great. Call Patrick Dennis, he will set you up and get one into your hands too. Five stars. Now I want one of the cognac burst ones as well.

My ultimate guitar

I 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 is 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.

A lot to like in a moderately priced package

My 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 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 immediatelyAll things considered, I know a keeper when I see it. This one will stay in the collection indefinitely.Hope this helps.

Godin LGX-SA (Trans Blue Flame AA)

whether 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 color; 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!
