Godin xtSA (Trans Black)
I've owned this guitar for five years now so I think I can comment without bias. This is my first choice ax for live or midi recording. I can't express the reactions I get when I start in acoustic piezo for first verse, add organ or string swells to the second, then distorted guitar onto everything else with a little wawa added in just for good measure. Add a looping pedal as I've done and rock out Rick Wakeman style. I have a Roland Gr 1 and a boss GT 5, and have never thought about gear again. That is... I keep buying it but my rig or confidence never wanes. If I need to gig out, its this combo every time, if I'm jamming with the buds its this rig, if I'm adding horn stabs in 9ths to a song its this rig . I'm super picky about sound and articulation and this setup has everything and can be sculpted to nail every sound. I have 22 electric guitars and some are just fantastic, but none can get an acoustic, and electric and sitarr at the same time. I'd love to tell you about all the things wrong but out of all my guitars this one is the best. I never even had a neck adjustment, can't say that about any of my other ones. I change the battery every 6 months whether it needs it or not. Thanks for your time. I hope I didn't come off too glowing, just want to share my opinion.
