Godin LGX AAA

I purchases this guitar new at "The Music Factory" a small shop in the town I live that sells lesser known, quality guitars. I paid roughly 1,400 including case and a set of elixers as well as an increadible set up. For those of you not familar with godin, it's a canadian manufacturer, who assembles it's guitars in New Hampshire.

First of all, it's AAA quilted maple top whith trans red finish is breathtaking. Nearly everyone who sees it up close and personal (or for that matter from the audience) comments on it's good looks. It is a two voice model that does the strat thing almost as well as my strat, the Les Paul thing perfectly, and The acoustic sound is comprible to most any strictly...…

First of all, it's AAA quilted maple top whith trans red finish is breathtaking. Nearly everyone who sees it up close and personal (or for that matter from the audience) comments on it's good looks. It is a two voice model that does the strat thing almost as well as my strat, the Les Paul thing perfectly, and The acoustic sound is comprible to most any strictly piezo equipped electracoustic. It also plays super smooth and comfortably. it has awsome tone, sustains forever, and holds a tune superbly.

The only thing I don't like is that it is somewhat tricky to get the strings through the back of the guitar when changing. No biggie. Also, I was somewhat dissapointed to discover you cannot get graphtech string saver saddles for it. Otherwise it is perfect.

It is pretty much a combination of the best parts of a strat and the best parts of a paul but together. It has a mahagony body with a maple top which gives it tones of sustain and a beautiful sound (which even is evident unplugged) It is string through body to add more sustain and a recessed bridge to be more comfy as well as easier on strings. It has a rosewood fingerboard, real bone nut, and excellent tuners as well as a bolt on neck that was painstackingly placed to transfer more vibration then any other method except "through body" (yes that means even set neck, all you paul junkies) the pickups (duncan jazz for neck and a custom custom humbucker for the bridge that was made especaily for the LGX) were both selected by Symour himself. The quality is better then any guitar I have yet seen. That includes Les Pauls, PRS, and custom shop strats.

This is easily the best electric guitar on the market for under 4,000 (keep in mind it costs only 1,200- 1,400 depending on finish and top) it can do any sound you want nearly as well or better then any electric guitar as well as doing the acoustic thing. I am a self admitted gear whore, and out of the many many guitars I have tried out or had a more extended expierience with. This is the best. It does not get much better, and it definitly doesnt get any better for the price.

I purchased this versitile electric guitar at the "Music Store" in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I bought it for about $1,200. The reason that I chose this guitar is that it has stereo jacks and a third jack which combines the sounds of the other two. It has an "electric" channel whcih has a five way position switch like a Fender Stratocaster, but also has a passive EQ which gives this guitar either a single coil pickup sound or a humbucking sound. With the flip of a small toggle switch, you can chose the pickups located under the bridge for an awsome acoustic sound. This channel has a three band active EQ.

I purchased this versitile electric guitar at the "Music Store" in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I bought it for about $1,200.

With the flip of a small toggle switch, you can chose the pickups located under the bridge for an awsome acoustic sound. This channel has a three band active EQ. It is easy to blend both electric and acoustic sound to get an extreemly wide variety of combinations that I have not found on other guitars.

What I like is that this guitar is hand made in the United States using a solid mahogany back and neck with a AAA grade flame top maple top. My particular model has an ebony fingerboard. Total bueaty of workmanship at a truely affordable price.

The neck has the best playability of any guitar I know. I have owned Fenders and Gibsons and have played many brands, But the Godan LGX is my favorite.

This is the most versatile guitar I know. I have used it in the studio with great success.

When I play live, I use a vintage tube amp for the electric channel with sme slight tube overdrive distortion. I run the acoustic channel through a Fender AcousticSonic Junior amp. The sound is totaly incredible. I have had nothing but favorable comments, even from other professional guitarist!

The only thing I can say I wish were better is on the electric channel, the EQ could be brighter. When you blend the acoustic channel in, it dramaticly adds sufficiant treble to the mix. Basically if your playing the electric channel only, you must add more than normal treble through your amplifier.

The quality of workmanship reminds me of a fine violin. Much detail is giving to the selection and manthcing of the woods. The neck is a bolt on. Also the mahogany neck is one piece at the headstock unlike many cheaper brands who glue the head stock on the neck. The ebenoy fingerboard is precision make and is the most comfortable and "fast" neck I have ever found.

Another nice feature is the cutaway body. First of all it doesn't look like a million other copy-cat guitars, but is unique, like an original fine work of art. Even the headstock is unique. This rig is very comfortable to play. It is a real conversation piece that sounds as good as it looks. The price is extreamly affordable for all of the quality high tech features. I reccomend the Godin LGX highly!

Dollar for dollar there isn't a better all around guitar made! I do not need another electric guitar when I own this one!

Superb violin, beautiful guitar. The woods used are superb. 10/10

UTILIZATION

Handle thin, flat, easy to play. Nice to play sitting or standing

SOUNDS

Just typed sounds effective but may be too versatile. Good output level. The interest lies in the electroacoustic sound and the possibility of mixing with the electrical.

OVERALL OPINION

Very good guitar, but I would customize the pickups for those looking for more personality.

Country of manufacture: Canada.

Classic bridge, 21 frets, mahogany neck, mahogany body.

Volume, tone bass treble switch for his electro acoustic / electric, sensor piezo with volume, bass, mid and treble.

All details on the website of Godin ...

UTILIZATION

Handle very pleasant to my taste, relatively flat.

However, the guitar is very heavy! It takes getting used to. Access to treble is excellent.

For sound we easily obtained excellent clear sound (serious micro Seymour is excellent) but it is a little harder for distos that are a little loud with the standard settings.

SOUNDS

Be quite my style of music (melodic Rock). I get mostly good clean sounds, some distos but not fatter. Frankly I looove this guitar sounds clear and electro-acoustic sound with just a tube preamp emulation is superb. I play on a LINE6 PODxt Live with Amp dedicated to it, the Power Engine 60.

OVERALL OPINION

I played with one LGX-SA for 10 years ... 10 years ago and I have to reinvest in the LGX because I missed her (I could sell the old fault round in my youth ...). Meanwhile I played on Jackson (not like trash too), an Epiphone Custom LG (not like it either), a Cort (to my debut).

What I like most: the sound, and the ability to play electro acoustic guitar with the same. The LGX-Sat also allowed for MIDI, nice place layers of synth sound (today-but it would be more useful to me). on the other hand had live scores Cubase with this model, I really miss it!

Level value, nine AC is very expensive, time (I paid 500 euros) it buries all the other guitars in this budget. I would say my purchase excellent value for money.
