Premium tonewoods for an exceptional sound

Godin crafted the MultiAc Steel Duet Ambiance to give you an amazing playing experience, and they started with the tonewoods. This striking guitar has a solid spruce top, a chambered mahogany body, a very comfortable mahogany neck, and a very classy Richlite fingerboard (with a 16" radius to accommodate fast fretwork). The MultiAc Steel Duet Ambiance easily reduces the potential for onstage feedback, and its controls are placed where you can easily get to them.

Plays fast and smooth

The Richlite fretboard on the Godin MultiAc Steel Duet Ambiance sports a very flat 16" radius, perfect for intricate fretwork. No matter what style you play, you'll find the MultiAc Steel Duet Ambiance a dream to perform with.

Natural-sounding pickup system

With custom Fishman electronics built right in, the Godin MultiAc Steel Duet Ambiance is ready to perform. The plugged-in sound is amazingly natural, giving you access to the sound of four different microphone types. You don't get the plastic sound you get from some guitars, just the sound of a stellar instrument captured through a microphone.

I have a new working guitar

My guitar arrived day before yesterday, carefully packaged and in tune, the kind of delivery I've come to expect from Sweetwater. I could not be happier with this purchase. I'm 42 and have been playing out since the mid-90's and currently do about 225 solo acoustic gigs a year. I've been playing a Boulder Creek Solitaire that I bought new in Jan 2009. After almost 8 years of service, she reminds me of an old ship because I've literally played a hole through her solid spruce top, allowing 2" clear view of her aluminum skeleton BC calls their suspended bracing system. A good guitar. And a workhorse, she's paid a lot of bills. But with the amount of playing I do, hand fatigue has become a factor. I once tried a friend's Godin A6, but it didn't sound like an acoustic to me in a solo act context, whereas it had always sounded like a real acoustic when we'd played duos together, so anyway, I doubted that I could get an acoustic tone from an easy to play, "electric feeling" type guitar that would be convincing. What I got was not merely convincing. The guitar arrived about an hour before I had to leave for a patio gig... should I take it? It had been returned by another customer, so there was a discount, but it was in flawless condition all the way around. The acoustic tone and projection on this model is surprisingly good. I ran it through my studio monitors, checked out the piezo for a second, then started blending in the mic images. Yes. Yes, I should take it. At the gig, I plugged into my Bose L1 model 2. I ran it on the same Acoustic with Piezo setting that I always use. By half an hour in, I had dialed in my EQ and mix. Played a single 3 hour set. Played like a dream. After the gig, I did something I rarely do, which was play more when I got home. I found the tones inspiring my creativity, and I'm really looking forward to playing it again tonight, both before and after the gig. I also found that I don't make any real contact with the top because the lighter feel allows all the choppa-choppa-click percussive stuff I play without much effort. Last night, I ran it into Garageband using a Focusrite Scarlet 2 and compared it to a recording I made of my Martin D-15M with a Rode NTK (all three Sweetwater purchases). The sound quality of the Godin MultiAc Steel Duet Ambiance, with no help, is not lacking anything and sounds like a real dreadnought to my ears. The ability to blend the mic images with the piezo is awesome. Bottom line, I was going after convincing acoustic tone with playability that I could live with. What I got was a dynamically controllable and genuinely rich acoustic sound from a highly playable and really cool looking guitar. Tonight is a sad night. More bittersweet. I'm going to take my Boulder Creek out to the gig, pick a song especially for her, Wildflowers by Tom Petty is coming to mind, and play her out one last time... I have a new working guitar.

Nice but needs set up

I played a number of these at the Sweetwater showroom and finally ordered one.A common issue (at least for me) with the playability is that the action quickly goes south above the 7th fret.If you play mostly rhythm its not much of an issue but For finger style and fast scale running its a big issue.I bought it figuring the issue could be addressed with a neck tweak and maybe a saddle filing but as it turns out the neck needed a reset and some frets needed filing.I play a dreadnaught almost exclusively but there are times when I need to lay down electric tracks and this guitar is very easy to crossover to from acoustic in terms of feel.So I decided to keep it and have the neck reset.
