MGR/DESY's review"GODIN LGXT AAA"

Godin LGXT
I WAS LOOKING FOR A NEW GUITAR THAT DAY AND MY FIRST CHOICE WAS A FENDER AMERICAN STRATOCASTER BUT FINALLY END UP WITH THE GODIN. I BOUGHT IT IN A SMALL MUSIC SHOP IN MONTREAL. THE PRICE: $ 950.00, THE GUITAR IN YEAR 2000.

IT HAS TJE MIDI SYSTEM FOR A FUTURE SYNTHETISER.

P.S ALL IN CANADIAN $

IT'S A BEAUTY, PURPLE COLOR WITH EBONY WOOD. IT CAN BE PLAYS AS ACOUSTIC AS ELECTRICSINCE THE GUITARE HAS 2 JACKS PLUS THE OUTLET FOR SYNTHETISER. A VERY VERSATILE INTRUMENT AS A MATTER OF FACT.

THE VIBRATO IS TOO CLOSE OF CONTROL KNOBS AND THE JACKS MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO PLACE THE GUITAR ON HIS SUPPORT WITHOUT RISKING TO DAMAGE THE CONNECTIONS

VERY HIGH QUALITY CONSTRUCTION.

HAND MADE OF COURSE, THIS GUITAR WORTH 2,800.00$ BRAND NEW.

AND THE SOUND,,,,,,,,,HUMMMMMMMMM THE SOUND WHEN BOTH ACOUSTIC AND ELECTRIC OUTLETS ARE CONNECTED ON A DIFFERENT AMPLIFIER. IT AN UNUSUAL SOUND, JUST LIKE TOW GUITAR PLAYING THE SAME CHORDS AND THE SAME SOLO.

I DID A VERY GOOD BUY, BUT STILL HAVE IN MIND THAT ONE DAY I WILL OWN A FENDER,,,,,,,,,AMERICAN OF COURSE

Godin LGXT
Everything has been written
3 sensors: magnetic (single or double) electric and piezo pickup for synthesizers, expanders or VSTI.
Converter via GR or GI 20 or Axiom

Very good handle
Settings and versatility to top

UTILIZATION

Everything has been said. This guitar is the most versatile on the market. Certainly model is quite heavy enough .. (More wood electronics ;)

To summarize, the most versatile guitar market

SOUNDS

In short, this guitar is the most versatile on the market
Micro single, double, piezo, synth access.
I do not like vulgarity or criticism but I failed to sell a real pretentious asshole, who accused him of setting perfectible handle ..
Admittedly, it was .. I had not played for some time and the handle was a little change .. Like any good violin, it remains sensitive.

This type reminded me of a truth .. Do not sell ..
I'll be tough, but if a certain "Gerald" contacts you, do not sell your LGXT him .. This is an old nose, swollen with pride and false claims, poor guitarist you proud suggests the need sell off your guitar ..... I almost have to .... TO AVOID

Certainty is not always a good counselor

OVERALL OPINION

the ultimate versatile guitar ... If you need to separate, do not Bradez. Take some time and then sell a musician worthy of the name ...

supervanille's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Superb, very, very versatile, it does everything well ..."

Godin LGXT
Three types of sensors: electric guitar pickups, piezo pickup for synth and guitar. 22 frets (I would have preferred 24 ...).

UTILIZATION

I like the handle, even if I have better, but it is also a matter of taste. only downside it is heavy.

SOUNDS

Rock sounds with Seymour Duncan pickups are very credible, I play mostly jazz and pop, and it is perfect in this register. the piezo pickup, I have not taken seriously at all at first, but my favorite singer wants more acoustic sounds other than these, that is to say ... .
I play plugged into a sound system with a boss GT8 where I spent time with my acoustic sounds ... .

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year in public and at home to models, it is often the only guitar that I take to save. I tried all kinds of guitars, and I had a big crush on this one a year ago, never looked back since ... .

Godin LGXT
See site Godin guitars.
The LGXT is identical to the LGX-SA except that it has an easel.
There should be two sets: one where LGXT is written in capitals and italics on the head of the guitar, and another to finish more sober (most recent).
The one I have is 2010 according to the serial number. The model was delivered in a rigid box Godin Canada / USA the most beautiful effect.

UTILIZATION

What a comfort! But what comfort this round!
While the guitar is a bit heavy, but that's because it is made with real wood tree ;-)
The shape is very well, this guitar is made and class.
The mechanics are great, once adjusted and tuned the guitar, nothing moves! It's really nice not to have to tune your guitar every time you play it.
The sustain is really really (really!) good.

SOUNDS

Sound level (the plural is actually required!), This is great:
- For output "electric", 2 humbucker Seymour & Duncan, 5 way switch. We go from his round, serious and hot (neck pickup) to a very clear sound (bridge pickup). I particularly like the 1 and 3 positions selector for blues and jazz sounds;
- For output "mix - acoustic", the three-band equalizer allows you to have very different acoustic sounds. And it can be coupled to the sounds of microphones electric and acoustic!
- For output "13 pin", you have access to Roland GR (I have a GR 55) and there ... yet other sounds, by hundreds! Besides those that you can create!

I plug in my amp SR Technology Jam 100: this is great! And with my little pedal from TC Corona chorus of electronics, it's very nice. I do not imagine that it would sound on a tube amp ...

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this guitar there eight months after "searched" long. She is beautiful, even stunning! I wanted EC model for its many qualities and I am not disappointed. I have not had tons of guitar before, so that I may now be looking for something ... different. But I keep my LGXT Cognac Burst! Next step: make a pedal board well thought out.

Godin makes great products (I was previously a nylon Multiac ACS-SA ... a marvel too <3). If I went eight months back, I wish so strongly that guitar.

PS: this is my first review on AF and I always wondered why surfers do not put 10/10 on a product they offering incense ... and then I do the same thing :-) Just because I do not have enough points when compared to the "perfect" everywhere, it is quite difficult.

Very nice position. A little heavy but we made it well

- Do you get easily a good sound ...?
Tremendous versatility between seymour duncan and micro piezo (electric output and a single output Piezo + Seymour with a mixture adjustment between the two. But in the long run, I am embarrassed by the high medium that are really violent especially when use of the wah or Q-tron

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

Godin LGXT
Guitar made in Canada
22 frets
2 Seymour Duncan humbuckers
+ 5-way switch
+ Piezo pickup
+ MIDI synthesizer for 13-pin
Classic Vibrato
Channel unvarnished

UTILIZATION

Handle very nice touch flatter than on my Start.
The handle does not catch even after prolonged use.
Access to treble is very good despite the fact that there have a cutaway, it goes without problem until last boxes.
In terms of ergonomics I am very comfortable with it, according nmoi only flaw in the form: the muzzle to the rear, had it been a little longer (in some amount on the back of the "horn "from the top like a Start) could have won the game in comfort for sitting. If standing, no problem, apart from the heavy weight, but a guitar that sounds with high-quality wood is always a bit heavy. Let's say that one feels the weight of the quality;)

SOUNDS

The sound is very fat distortion seymour duncan pickups with. The sounds are crystal clear. It's really a guitar to do anything especially if like me you equip one guitar type synth Roland VG-88 then it's the foot ...
What really surprised me about my strat's HUGE sustain of this guitar ... truly monstrous!
I play on a tube amp Peavy Classic 30 and I treat, in terms of the better synth to be plugged directly into a PA it seems. I think I'll invest in a small sound system because for a lot of his guitar amp is not suitable and we can not fully exploit the synth.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for one month

Most:
- Intrument suberbe, this guitar smells like wood, we see immediately that the materials are of quality.
- Versatility: an infinite number of sounds in one guitar.
- Comfortable, very nice

the -:
- Weight, heavy enough
- Delivered in deluxe soft case: very nice but for a guitar of this price a hard case would have been welcome.
- Price: € 1800 on average over the Net, 2090 in store. I found it on sale for € 1,490, otherwise I would not have taken.

I have tried many different guitar before buying it. At first I wanted another layer because it is a guitar that suits me, then I tried Gibson, Ibanez ... Finally this Godin is a favorite.

The quality / price or price I got (€ 1490) is correct for 2000 € posted in store, I think the price is a bit harsh.

With the experience I do not regret my purchase, I'm happy, but not the ultimate guitar for me is a favorite, I tried it at a time in my life or my finances allow me to invest in such an instrument so I took the opportunity to please me.
I can not say if I do it again this choice because I always try new ENVIS guitars. The best advice I can give you: try before you buy!

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

Godin LGXT
Said before
but the beautiful stuff

UTILIZATION

Handle very nice, easy access to acute, although hand.
gréable the guitar is within reach when you are sitting (not standing still trying), the weight is a bit high but the stuff is present.
For sound, it is simply amazing: in electro acoustics, with its highly crystalline still heat in Electrical & Seymour Duncan is a mahogany body: sustain and presence whether for the clear or full.
The mixture of acoustic and electronic sound is very interesting (mixing incorporated into the guitar.
for MIDI, I have yet to try but I already know that it will please me.
HOWEVER IMPORTANT: As a member of the state Audiofanzine, the guitar does the agreement when you pull the strings with vibrato, for cons in the opposite direction I did not notice any problem. So if you are a hard vibrato drop ...

SOUNDS

This guitar is very versatile because of these characteristics, which goes very well with my game, which goes from blues rock, jazz and trip hop.
for its clear I find this guitar perfect in every way (lots of versatility), but I prefer the saturated sounds to a cad Mr. Vai's very expressive, the Universe over my 777 and my modified 7V suit me perfectly.
Nevertheless, the distorted sounds are of very high quality and very professional.
Hear the sound http://raphaon.musicblog.fr, I use it in some of my compositions.

OVERALL OPINION

I tried the XTSA before you buy, the choice was not so easy (especially since I have not tried on the same amp)
The XTSA is very interesting especially for value for money.
The difference between these two guitars is the choice of wood for eclipses: poplar and mahogany for the XTSA for LGXT, and in the choice of pickups: Seymour for LGXT XTSA and Godin. This has an impact at power, the LGXT is simply more interesting, a more jazzy and warmer than in either unscrambled or saturated.
For those who want a versatile guitar with great sound, the LGXT is here!
I love it!

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

Godin LGXT
See site Godin.

The mcaniques blocking a dtail killer, but really convenient. Should be that all manufacturing is inspired.

UTILIZATION

The handle is a marvel, to say anything!
The ACCS in acute easier. (22 frtes -> the feet)
Twist the knob for ngative piedzos, which does not mute the sound when we want to change the sound into electrical saturated but it sounds really nitpicking.
The sound is a marvel: even empty plate on a rack, has given her a nice, located on any amp, it does sound like I love it!
The stem vibrato is super simple to install, super sensitive, and without dsacorder please.

SOUNDS

Equally well with any type of saturation rings.
Personally, I play a lot of SKA, and the clear sound is perfect.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it for some months, and I can not let go.
Blue is sublime.
Even if the price is daunting, I know that I have for my money.
Compete head down, I guarantee that you will not regret it!

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

Godin LGXT
Guitar made in Canada.
22 frets, micro: Seymor Duncan Jazz II-handle and Seymor Duncan personalis-bridge micro-acute Seymor Duncan Designed by him even for this guitar, then LR Baggs piezo, then MIDI sensor.
5 switch positions for the micro-Tele, Start and Gibson ensured.
Wilkinson bridge type sensor piezo over MIDI.
Settings: Seymor Duncan pickups, volume, volume: MIDI, tone-Seymor Dincan microphones, switch to change the MIDI programes, piezo-volume, more treble, mids and bass piezo! Perfecte what!
Solid mahogany neck ebony fingerboard more for super-fast MIDI response!
22 frets,

UTILIZATION

Mahogany beautiful from any point of view: esthttique and manual. Indeed, it is a pure pleasure to walk on it as easy, not too fat nor too thin perfect short. The highs are simple to achieve, even if the handle 22 facilitates freight least CHAC example with a godin SD remains largely (by far) accesible. Short sleeve trs enjoyable, also affects Saddle.
The very first time I took her in my arms, it seemed heavy. Of course compar a guitar "normal" type fender is not surprising. But rest assured, after a few minutes if I was asked my opinion on the weight I probably said, "what bin weight? It is normal ..." yes but its 8kg for a guitar may seem heavy some type matches. The form is trs agrbale guitar does not slide, remains stable and is perfectly playable up.
Its level is when the same reason I do not hsit. Trs simple and it sounds correct to obtain a level of almost beginners. Dj Aillant years derrire my back [via datlete} I rgal

SOUNDS

Prcis to be more about what I said above, I would say that this guitar will walk on the genre. I myself am even adept all types of music. By trying it I went through Bob Marley, Jimmy Hendrix, ACDC, Metallica, Mozart (not too good fo abuse either), Led Zepelin, oasis and finally the more pop songs like Mickey 3D etc.. And every time, without lying, it is possible to find the group's sound and style (even when the slimites). The piezo can change much the sound of the guitar and electric mode, the Seymour Duncan humbucker, all have different features. The sound is crystalline, but rather all that is changing as I mentioned above. Trs saturation is simple. Who has ever tried a Seymour Duncan humbucker without saturation from the seventh heaven on a solo dchain Indeed, we get either one of his nag in the true sense, but even when through the ranks, if desired, a perfect control of his solo on a fast, so it is not too runny. Yes jecris much, maybe I talk too much ... but my god ... I mem marry if I could model

OVERALL OPINION

I often use it with a friend (dailleurs the fact that he has this really a favorite guuitare our meetings). Now that I have been with me for about a week, I let go (I double results in stagnation in high school dailleurs). Uses a 30 watt marshall amp and a peavey 15watts, it makes a very good sound especially on the marshall but to say that whatever Lampl (as in laminar and the seller was sen else)) it is still as magical. 1500 euros for a guitar with a beautiful acoustic sound, microphones, and the renowned MRIT, a midi output that allows all the madness, a round table and a devil ... and that NEI hsite, Unhappy ! If I ever return to the pass Devaya I think just for all the good times passs during last night (and yes passion when you hold us) or for small concerts, most of all the bahissement jeuntees dun me crazy once I do it again several ofis the same choice. Mr Godin .... I love you!
