yoTrakkz's review"great electric/acoustic guitar"

Art & Lutherie CW Cedar Quantum 1
My friend purchased this for our setup. This is a high-quality acoustic electric, and is notable for having many controls with which to adjust the sound. These include volume, brilliance, treble, contour, bass frequency, notch, and a phase switch in case you run into phasing issues (I personally have never needed to use that switch, but all the other ones, I certainly make use of). It has a spruce top and a maple body and neck, with an ebony fretboard. The bridge is also ebony.


UTILIZATION

The cutaway allows easy access to the top frets. With all of these features and the cutaway, the cw feels more like an electric guitar than an acoustic, and this makes it an interesting guitar. It isn't too heavy and it feels good to play sitting or standing. Getting a good sound almost always requires an adjustment. It's almost in your best interest to get the right acoustic guitar amplifier, this amp only sounds good amplified. I'm not a big fan of the direct sound (the pickups just aren't really cut out for that). The action was too high when I bought it, so I had it lowered and now it plays great.


SOUNDS

This is an acoustic electric that sounds like it has a little bit of both in it. There are some sounds that wouldn't have sounded out of place on Eric Clapton's Unplugged record. For the most part, this is built for live performance. In fact, that's when it sounds the best. I would never mic this guitar live or in the studio, or even play it acoustically if I was looking for a good tone. But I doubt anyone would buy this guitar if you are looking for a good acoustic. This is acoustic-electric all the way, and if that's what you want, it sounds fantastic. That's the reason for the high mark.


OVERALL OPINION

I think this is a really great A/E guitar, and I'd really be thrilled if I had one of my own. Unfortunately, I don't, but I think I might get one eventually. It's certainly expensive, so make sure that you'll use it a lot and that it's exactly what you are looking for.

Art & Lutherie CW Cedar Quantum 1
Electroacoustic guitar folk of the Godin family made in Canada-based wood very strong resonance: cedar, cherry, maple, spruce and rosewood.
Satin finish for increased resonance.
Micro Godin Quantum (flight - bass - treble) efficasse terribly.
Cutaway for easy access to rear notes.

Very light and pleasant to touch

UTILIZATION

Very lightweight, this guitar is perfect for accompaniment.
I did add a stud for the strap because I n, not like tie strap on the head. Why going basis?

The amp will be terribly effective and simple but formidable settings.
The battery is available (which is rare)

Only downside: the handle called "logger" that can tire without some training.

SOUNDS

This is the sound I was looking for a gaming agreements, as in arpeggio. Not suited to heavy rock (not painted), it provides incredible feel (especially with a small chorus)

I play a Marshall AS50R, and I often played on AER 60, and the result is impeccable.

Choose well the strings: Martin or rather Godin

OVERALL OPINION

I've had three years and I am very satisfied.
I researched this finish which is rare in France??
What a look! It leaves no one indifferent.

The sound is THE sound I was looking for. Only the handle can cause bp for small hands

UTILIZATION

See other opinions

SOUNDS

I am a studio musician and the guitar has often modest saved my life ...
Sometimes the best guitars do not sound good (temprature, hygromtrie, acoustic ...)
I happened to take the CW and use it to record in the studio.
Allucinant is enough to play a little guitar cheap that sounds great. The cedar is surely something for ...
The prampli is not the best quality but it is enough to make the deep vibration of the guitar.
In Plugge must care a little sound of PRMP Godin (qualiser treble)
By making it live sober tonnate not a hair of treble too much, deep in her sweet home you love one acoustic guitar ...

OVERALL OPINION

Report quality price crabouill completely. Vritablement plays in the courtyard of the great ... It's strange but true.

Art & Lutherie CW Cedar Quantum 1
Guitar factory in Qubec, which has 21 frets, 1 volume, 1 treble, 1 bass, it is simply gniale.

UTILIZATION

The neck is strait as a qu'agrable fretboard electrical. The cutaway allows good access to acute, even if I use it more for playing songs composed qubecoise or smooth. Ms. flamenco it suits me perfectly. I did never use on stage but I look forward to my next representation.

SOUNDS

I'm in music gains entry qubec to buy for my electric guitar pick, and circling the store, I saw him. At first glance I fell in love with her. But it is when I try the shot of cum hit total. I bought on the spot

OVERALL OPINION

$ 450 dpenss 3 years ago, and yet I use it regularly and I love it. Even if this guitar is the acoustic Premire I try (I played sche / electric), I will choose the future of A & L Guitars Godin, Hoping to keep my Cedar CW in good condition.

Cannelyta's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Art & Lutherie CW Cedar Quantum 1
Electro-acoustic folk guitar made in Canada
Woods used (95% Canadian): cedar, cherry, maple, spruce, rosewood
Satin finish lacquer for maximum sound
Micro Godin Quantum with only 3 knobs (but adequate): Volume, Treble and Bass
Cutaway for easy access to acute

UTILIZATION

The handle is fine and pleasant
Access to acute is rather easy with the cut side (but not as much as an electric guitar, of course ...)
The body is rather large, but the guitar is very playable, even for "small jigs" (including myself)

SOUNDS

The sound of this guitar not plugged me totally excited! It is hot, powerful. I did not know what sound I was looking at buying my folk, but I immediately cracked for this sound and this guitar when testing in-store!
It fits very well with blues, rock acoustic or electric (Group), folk, ballads ... Avoid metal of course, but otherwise, everything goes: D
I play for several months on an amp for electro-acoustic Laney LA65C which reproduces exactly the warmth of his that I knew in acoustics.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this guitar in July 2006, and I use it for a few months connected to a Laney LA65C.
What I decided to buy this guitar when I was looking for a vaguely folk electro-acoustic is its sound (and look too ...)! I tried 3 other models of electro folk but it's really on this one I snapped! Difficult to explain, but it was the guitar I wanted.
The value for money is excellent (I think I paid the € 500, in other words the middle to low-end electro-acoustic) and I do not get enough!

A tip for those who do not know Art and Lutherie: do not hesitate to try this brand of guitar ... Even if it is not as well known as Fender and Gibson, quality is the appointment and the price would be almost ridiculous!

Art & Lutherie CW Cedar Quantum 1
The CW cedar home art and violin is a real gem. Manufactures hand exclusively from Canadian wood
there are of solid cedar for the soundboard and a three-layer Growth of birch for the back and wicker covers; Saddle The handle is rosewood fingerboard with 21 frets to quip and mcaniques oil bath trs performance. The cedar CW is equipped with a microphone manufactured by Quantum emp Godin, Brand of known renames! and has three buttons,
a treble bass and volume! Could not be more simple.

UTILIZATION

The neck is thin enough and enjoyable to touch the trs definitely rosewood. CHAC is easy thanks to the sharp cutaway shape. The criticism I have is in terms of size, is a large guitar that is sitting prfrable use.
The sound is warm and gnreux, ds the first connecting the guitar sounds just fine and is to go. The highs are crystalline and very severe balance. It is a rgal

SOUNDS

This guitar is to be accompanied on idalie scne. It should be more specially the folk, but is quite versatile. Trs can do well or rock song Franaise! I use a roland cube, but it is to buy an amp prfrable special acoustic.
From low to high, nothing is wrong. O n the contrary it is a perfect harmony, and the sound is equilibrated trs!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a week and what I like most is the sound gnrosit! no need to scrape hard, it ffleure and gives bcp!
What I like least is the size, I prfr the same quality but on the MODEL friend of the same brand!
It's expensive, but it's a guitar that I will take a long time because it has the particularity of s'amliorer Over the years, like good wine!
Yes I redeem the same, maybe in a DIFFERENT color!
