Great Value

I've owned this instrument for a year and have to say that I'm very pleased with it. The workmanship is flawless, the top is gorgeous, and the action (for a full-width classical fretboard) is superb. I compared it with other electric classical guitars I own and it measures up well. This is, I believe, the first hollow-body electric nylon produced by Godin, so it has a live sound box which adds immeasurably to the authenticity of the sound (I hate solid body 'electric' sounding nylon stringed instruments that sound like rubber bands). I would compare it favorably with what I believe to be the best factory made acoustic electric ever, the Gibson Chet Atkins Studio model, of which I have owned two. And because Godin included three computer-modeled microphone sounds (which can be mixed with the bridge pickup), the Grand Concert Dual Ambience has some added sonic variables you are bound to dig, but only when you settle into The Room. You'll have to tinker, though, and I don't like mine cranked up too much so I can avoid brittleness in the treble range. You'll find that the fretboard is NOT ebony– it's made of a synthetic called 'Richlite'. Tell you what, though: it plays slicker than deer guts on a door knob. The action is low, and the frets are immaculate. I was off-put by the hard tension, large diameter strings that came with the guitar, because the big windings chirped like a tree full of finches through the amp (another no-no in my opinion), so try not to let them bother you when you get your own Godin, and change to your favorites before you make up your mind about it. The neck is finished with a matt polyurethane, which bothers me a bit. I've never had a problem with lacquer finishes and would've been happier with that, but it's not a big deal. For me, the Grand Concert is just a tad on the heavy side. It comes in at about seven pounds (part of that is due to a truss rod), which is about two pounds heavier than I would prefer, but it DOES make the instrument feel solid. I'm not a big fan of slider controls on the upper bout, but the only guitars I have ever seen to solve this problem adequately were the Gibson Chet Atkins models. I found that I could adjust the volume with either hand in the middle of a tune while performing. Well... if wishes were horses, and all that. To sum up, this is a very high quality, excellent sounding, and high-tech instrument with an authentic and stunning sound you will love to just look at. It's also (despite the price) a bargain. After having owned the Grand Concert for a year, I'd buy the very same one all over again and count myself fortunate. I think you'll like it, too.
