A dream come true
I've been at the 7-string for 4 decades now, usually an arcgtop or electric with steel strings. I had a flamenco guitar converted to 7-string a few years ago, and loved the sound, but couldn't get it work as well in real-world (LOUD) situations. The Godin, however, is perfectly designed for playing amplified, the pickups are the renowned RMC system, which I have had installed in several of my guitars, best tracking on the planet. They also work quite well with a multi-processing pedal such as a Digitech or Zoom, giving a very good electric guitar sound, distortion and all, and imitating a jazz guitar sound very well. The synth tracking is the best, and there isn't anything quite like playing the bass lines with the 7th and 6th strings while dialing in strings, flutes, vocal choruses, steel drums, electric pianos, whatever you like. For working with singers, it's a perfect solution.
