Value For Money : Excellent
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


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)


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.


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!
