Besides the fact that the neck is fretless, here are the characteristics given by Godin:
Radius of 40.6 cm (16 in.)
Diapason 64.75 cm (25 1 / 2 inch)
Nut 4.75 cm (1 7 / 8 in.)
Body mahogany acoustic chamber
RMC electronics with special 13-pin connector for direct access to the synth Roland GR Series and Axon AX100
Natural Satin finish or Natural Gloss
A very beautiful instrument in every case!
The handle is very pleasant. Being fretless, there is no problem to play. These are the strings "classic". I think with a string mesh dish is even better.
For now, I have a jack or through the use of acoustic, but it is possible to connect the boxes as the GR-33, to play much more than the guitar!
The instrument is very kind in that live music is at once very Eastern (at least initially). The agreements are not simple, but working a little, you get there.
In fact, we should not see this instrument as a guitar. That's all aure thing, with other possibilities, and many more sensitivity.
The acoustic sound is very rich. After, this is like a play and not as a fretless guitar. You can play on microtonality, slides etc ...
I bought this guitar 3 years ago, but I play occasionally, because very typical. It is a pleasure every time. However, I realize more and more we can expand the game to other styles (even pop / rock).
I also tried the Glissentar. The, for once, I found that the instrument was too oriented (style Oud). I prefer the Multiac for two reasons:
- More versatile
- Pin 13-PIN (pseudo-Midi), so POSSIBILITY play things more electro, tablecloths etc ...
The guitar is shipped overnight (then 2000 Euros!), But I do not regret my purchase. Now I was really starting the work. So one recommendation: ask yourself what you will use (musical style) and ... if you are ready to re-learn to play guitar;-p.

The finish is perfect, the neck is very soft. key fretless is very pleasant and certainly easier to play fretless guitars I've tried. The sound is very acoustic (piezo) and skips Eastern sounds (oud) things much exprimentales. Sustain notes Aiges is lightly lower, it is not for me s a real problem, you just take it into account when one is dealing with this guitar.
I have not yet had the opportunity to try to 'midi'
I use it for two months now, I already availing oneself of a vigier Surfreter and other models of fretless guitar. The Godin has not ashamed to face the other guitars, instead she has this very warm and acoustic temperament perfectly suited to many styles of music except saturated.
Report qualitprix very good against the possibilities of this guitar.
