    Godin A6 Acoustic Electric

    Godin A6Published on 12/23/01 at 15:00
    I hadnt really played for a decade or so & wanted to start playing again. I used to have a Univox les paul 70's & a Guild acoustic. Used to play thru a Vox (70's solid state I believe) 10-15 watt amp so I was and still am a semi-beginner. Not really knowing what to expect, I couldn't make up my mind on what to get. I knew though the 1st time I played the Godin a6, that my mind was made up. A very easy feel with its thin neck; lightweight; sweet acoustic sounding & easy to play. (my fingers hadn't played for years. While shopping, I let other customers play it thru any small amp on the store's floor to get an idea of whta it would sound like amplified.

    I hadnt really played for a decade or so & wanted to start playing again. I used to have a Univox les paul 70's & a Guild acoustic.

I knew though the 1st time I played the Godin a6, that my mind was made up. A very easy feel with its thin neck; lightweight; sweet acoustic sounding & easy to play. (my fingers hadn't played for years. While shopping, I let other customers play it thru any small amp on the store's floor to get an idea of whta it would sound like amplified. Again not palying for so long I didnt know what to expect. I paid aprx 650.00 with a nice Godin case. (I felt pretty special at this point.) I've used it 3-4 times a week now for a almost 1yr now. Played it thru Fender Princeton; Vox Pathfinder and of course my only remaining piece from 10 yrs ago my little Pignose. For someone getting back into playing mild rock, blues etc I highly recommend it. Its lived upto the reviews I've read over the past year. The store's name was Keeney Bros.

    Light on the fingers; An electric guitar feel; a sweet acoustic sound; the eq is handy & easily accesible; love the finish.

    Nothing yet!

    No problems aftr 1 year. Unsure of the details regarding construction. Materials weren't really an issue for me just getting back into playing again.

    I went with my gut feelings or should I say my fingers feelings. The A6 just felt right in my hands. Since I hadnt played for so long, I didnt judge it on how it sounded amplified. Only how it sounded & felt to my semi-beginer's ears. Absolutley love it!

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is a pure highway in acute ... CASC as an electrical ... it is ultra lgre
    The piezo sound is good trs

    SOUNDS

    For enregistrments, I use a track taken a piezo + mic static ... well a lot super

    OVERALL OPINION

    I wanted a Ginson Chet Atkins ... I had not now as ... should really try to change the Chet Godin because I t qu'agrablement more surprised by this small scratches ( 500E secondhand ... excellent quality price)
    Brief comment on the strings, as Godin, use ropes lctriques above, I have done several tests and found that 10-47 ACOUSTIC Elixir S transcend this little scratch it ... resents the strongest tie.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is very nice, a real highway is an electric guitar neck. Access to acute is very easy and is extremely comfortable and lightweight.
    In terms of sound, that the branch on a beautiful acoustic amp (AER) or directly on a rotten PA it sounds serious.

    SOUNDS

    It perfect for all styles. I used mainly live on Sonos in the Eq Bars I leave the console straight I remove a little low on the guitar and I add a little reverb and there is just perfect. Try doing that with a Takamine. Also as it has virtually no cash there is no attachment and no feedback.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Godin A6 I play on now for 8 years now this is my 2nd. They have a few frets that wear out quickly so soft after 5 to 6 years it is advisable to refreter the handle. When it happened I thought to take advantage to change, I try many other electro-acoustic and finally I buy a Godin A6 and is offered to my old friend who still uses it .
    This choice I would do without hesitation.
