Companion Practice Amp Review

Hey, if you're considering an LGXT, you may also want to consider the Fishman Loudbox Artist or Performer as a practice amp. Took me a couple years to find it, but the Loudbox is a great companion to the LGXT. It has four inputs:- Channel 1 - Electric and Acoustic voices, - 1/4" Aux in - Synthesizer voice, - 1/8" Aux in - Computer or phone, - Channel 2 - Vocals, Naturally, the Fishman sounds great with the acoustic voice. But I was very surprised that it has enough headroom for my full electric pedalboard. Even I Love Rock n Roll played with full distortion from my Plimsoul pedal sounds good through my Fishman Performer. I don't use the available effects loop. I just plug my pedalboard in between my guitar and amp. The light weight and all-in-one amplification along with the 180 Watts of power make it great for coffee shop gigs or more, But the biggest bonus of all is the headphone jack for silent practice. Wish I'd found it a lot sooner.

A Dozen Years and still strumming

It's been a dozen years now since I brought home my brand-spanking-new Godin LG Signature (back then it had to be modified to include the synth pickup system). It's been my workhorse ever since - in studio and on stage. I use separate effects rigs for the acoustic, electric, and synth channels. Whether blending the channels or focusing on a single sound, I can find the tones that are just right for every song, from ballad to crunch, to crying lead. And I don't have to swap guitars between songs, a great plus while talking to the crowd. Great craftsmanship and dependable longevity. If the time came to put my baby to rest, you can guess what will replace it - another Godin LGXT.

The Ultimate in Versatility

I've been playing daily for a couple years now after getting back into guitar from when I was a kid. In those two years, I've picked up a Strat, a Tele, a Les Paul with a Bigsby, a classical, a steel string, a 12 string, and a bass. I enjoy playing them all. They're all great Chinese guitars, but none of them could be called professional. I'd been dreaming of what I would get for a professional guitar. I play in a band that plays blues, country, and classic rock. There are times when playing with the band that I'd like to pick up any one of my guitars so it was impossible to make a decision on what professional guitar to buy. That is, until I found the Godin LGXT.Since getting it, I have been very satisfied. Here's how I use it:Electric pickups:With these pickups, I play the humbuckers to get Les Paul tones, or use the split coils to get a Tele or Strat tone. I can't quite get the "classic" tones that you get from the Tele or Strat bridge pickups, but the twang from the bridge pickup definitely gets the job done.Acoustic pickup:When we switch to a song that calls for an acoustic, I don't need to switch guitars, but can rather just switch to the transducer pickup. It sounds like a good steel string guitar. Not quite as good as my Fender six string acoustic/electric, but again, it gets the job done with style.Synth pickup:The synth pickup coupled with the Roland GR-55 does a nice classical guitar tone. Not quite as good as my Takemine, but very good for an electric guitar. Good enough to satisfy the band. I also use the synth to imitate bass when I'm working alone with my looping pedal. I can drop in a bass line without having to switch guitars and amps. I haven't even begun to explore the myriad tones you can get from the synth. But I'm looking forward to recording some new age songs in the future. I believe there are over 900 voices total, so the sky is the limit in terms of what you can do.So you're probably thinking, you're using that guitar in a band? And the answer is yes, because first and foremost, it is a great electric guitar. The Seymour Duncan pickups are great, the neck with satin finish is very fast, the Graphtech Tusq nut keeps the guitar in tune when I use the tremelo, and I can blend in some acoustic tone in with the electric if I want. It is a great guitar for playing in a band. The quality of the instrument far surpasses that of my Chinese guitars. And the looks of this guitar are stunning. So with this guitar you're getting quality equivalent of a Fender American Standard, along with unbelievable versatilty. With my eclectic musical tastes, I don't think I would have been satisfied with any other guitar. Owning this guitar has cured me of perusing music store ads dreaming of my next guitar.The gig bag it comes with is very nice, but an instrument of this quality really deserves a hard case. The Godin hard case I bought is excellent for the price.The guitar is a winner and so is Sweetwater. The guitar came setup well and I got it in just two days. And my sales engineer really took care of me to make sure that I was satisfied.So what are you waiting for? If versatility is important to you, this is the guitar for you!

Lives up to the Hype

"It lives up to the Hype!" What other people have written is true, this is a gorgeous instrument with lots of rich power and flexibility when combined with a guitar synthesizer like the Roland GR-55. Together, they are incredible. I do not possess the fine skills of a virtuoso, but this guitar allows me to sound like one. It is well worth the investment for the great sound and flexibility. It is an example of quality craftsmanship - you'll have this puppy the rest of your life. Try one, I think you'll be glad you did ... let Sweetwater and Godin help bring out the music in your soul.

Love Godin

I have owned this guitar for several years and I am still shocked at the sounds that I can coax out of this thing. The pickups are great sounding and with the piezo you can get just about any tone from telecaster to archtop. With my Roland GR 55 the sky is the limit. I mix in orchestras and horns or play bass at the same time. Ever since I discovered Godin I really have no practical interest in any other brand. I would have like a Floyd Rose but otherwise I'll be playing this axe as well as my Freeway SA for decades to come.
