Canada. Guitar handmade by Godin Art and Lutherie. Maple neck. 22 frets. 3 settings; volume, bass and treble. EPM Quantum Electronics.
Particularly pleasant handle, not too wide for a good grip. Guitar a bit heavy when playing long standing.
Acute easy access except on 21 and 22 frets or it takes some practice.
Its excellent acoustics. A real treat to play blues, folk and ballads.
Serious amplified saturate a bit when the sound is very loud.
I play mostly folk and blues guitar and this delights me. I'm really happy. The range of sounds mids and highs it is truly exceptional.
I have this guitar since March 2009. I use it daily. I particularly like its sound and power of sound it makes.
The price / quality ratio is particularly valuable. In this price range (around 600 €) electro-acoustic I did not find better. If I had to change I will take the same guitar and I will stay at Art and Lutherie (Godin).
Made in Canada. Guitar luthier hand made with active amplification (volume, BMT).
The handle is nice, quite easy to play. Despite the cut, the last frets are fairly easy to c-play. But the weight, balance are waiting for you. And then, as touch is nice!
I was really amazed by its particular sound, low and very soft metal. I compared with a Takamine mid-range and entry-Ovation and both were dropped. With a preamp and a compressor, we arrive at the high level of sound. Anyway, I sleep with, then it's 10!
Perfect value for money, a smooth pleasant to touch (very natural wood), a nice handle and accurate enough, play a sound most comfortable and I can not do without. As I said, I sleep with. Smack baby!

For folk, the Channel is fairly thin and flat and enjoyable, Access in acute rather easy.
The ergonomics are perfect, thanks to the cutaway.
This is when even a little guitar a lumberjack (Canadian?), It's not a girl in folk, but it's still quite playable. (Eg ibanez vv200ece is easier to play)
Branch, The Quantum electronics is really a baffling simplicity (compared with some fishman full of multi rglages) and you get get a good sound trs, trs natural quickly. It sounds!
Guitar with lots of personality.
Trs sound "roots" a little dig in enough mtallique mdium ... beacoup attack.
Sound a little cowboy, to play the Delta blues .... ohh John Lee Hooker
perfect for the Rock-Blues ..
behavior on the finger is very nice too, crystalline highs and well rounded bass.
lack of a lightweight "body" in the same mdiums when. brief sound very hollow.
Nice sustain. (Including harmonics)
Branch sends the large ca. very low fleshy, bright and sharp, I love.
EQ simple but effective to easily sculpt the sound.
I just buy it ..
I tried other models in stores before buying in this price range. I have long hsiter with Ibanez AW200Electro (which was worth 100 dollars more) but in the end I prfr the A & L. Aesthetics for reasons (it's stupid but a guitar you must love to play well, and j'tais love the look of the A & L), the more silent ibanez provided in mdiums, a handle easier to play, but in the end it was less personality and I liked also less sound when plugged ... and then I found it ugly .. (Even when it is much more beautiful, satin finish rather than their factory varnish shining and mcaniques dores))
In short, beautiful guitar .... excellent price quality ratio.
I think not change any time soon .... unless you buy a Martin ... (But not the same price)
Everything has been said, for my part it is a cedar CW ..... I do not know if that changes anything. If so thank you for telling me, I'd look less con next time
Channel to play nice
The cut allows easy access to acute, and even high paerché it sounds!
I sleep so well with the place was not already taken
The sound is impeccable, and the same price range, I have not found one which comes close (even takamine)
I play more blues, folk and some rock (for work before resuming electric) and it is perfect for what I do. and I have a lot of room
I connect to a small Ibanez but not very often because of the neighbors but it's pretty bad.
6 months and no time have I regretted my purchase
I love the color (matte black)
I passed the store review, all brands
And yes, I Refer this choice without hesitation
