Godin Acousticaster
Everything has already been said, guitar made in Canada, I had to finish my part a black 1992 model with LR Baggs preamp. On paper everything is perfect ... but the first black point is the access for changing batteries 2: you must remove the front plate may blow the welds. Unfortunately for me it happened to me, I contact LR Baggs for the schematic and PCB follows me armed with patience during 4 hours to resolder everything properly: Calvary!
Second black speck, is no longer manufactured, I asked again to Godin LR Baggs directly and they told me that the preamp is no longer available, more stock and no alternative! Amazing and surreal as answer!


The handle (that of a telecaster) is simply one of the best guitars all together, which I had the opportunity to play. The action was low, easy access to acute, ropes fluffy as desired (10-46 shooting), the left hand does not fatigue. This guitar is quite light, hollow body closed (no feedback). Sound setting is easy with the preamp, cursors are effective, it is easy to get a good sound.


When empty, the guitar sounds just as the thickness of the body and the fact that it is closed, but the sound is interesting, dynamic and that side is suppressed has charm. Anyway to work at low volume is nikel. Once connected, either directly or in my sound on my bugera v22 (certainly not suitable) card, it sounds beautifully means real wood, the bass is captivating, warm, well-defined treble. Rhythmic pop / folk, picking or solo, it adapts to all situations. I play world music, pop, a little Celtic and I jazzouille / merges, the guitar responds perfectly. I even know a person who does gypsy with. This is a unique guitar but what a sound!


I utlisée during a short month, I had a real favorite at all levels and I really would have liked to keep it if there had not been all these problems and possible future problems related to electronics. I could turn to a luthier possibly solutions must necessarily exist if the preamp would make the soul, but I have not had the courage to venture on this path there (finance either) . Anyway I recommend this guitar because it has character, the violin is excellent, it is a guitar collector and okaz, it can not find too expensive.
I will try as soon as I can "Acousticaster 40th anniversary" model that apparently corrects the problems mentioned but the question is whether I will find the same feeling with this enhanced reissue.

22 frets maple neck rosewood fingerboard.
Mechanical oil bath Godin

Sensor piezo preamp equalizer LR BAGGS
Settings: Gain Treble Mid Bass
Powered by 2 x 6LR61
18 metal blades mounted granted under the bridge

Black finish with white binding cream has become over the years.

Comes with a flight case covered with black Tolex with 2 white pinstripes stitched.


Acute form TELECASTER easy access through the notch.
Fretboard electric fine, it is not out of place when you go to a TELECASTER Godin.
It is very light. The finish is flawless.


Its a little metal slamming electro acoustic typical once connected.
Solos crystalline or slamming bass, harmonics.

In rhythmic arpeggios as it is not confused!
It gets all the sounds of this type of guitar, the preamp is very effective.
Plugged into sound with a bit of reverb or a little amp, it gives all his wealth.
I even made a saturating tube amp!


I use it for almost 20 years, it has not budged.
She is super nice with its glossy black livery.
It is worth its price, but it is a beautiful instrument that will not disappoint.
I would do this purchase without problems.

The godin factories are in Canada (may be in part United States) in a semi-traditional.

24 frets and a micro Lr.Baggs excellent bill, and I weigh my words.

I go to the bridge

You have a 3-way equalizer, plus an adjustable volume. The preamp is harmony (I know not what it mean but ca may explain that the guitar is great amplified)

The neck is like an electric, very well.


Easy access to acute (telecaster)

Ergonomics impeccable (I play dancing without problem, and god knows I'm not a pro)

The sound was smooth, without the polish


It should in my opinion has every style, has classical, flamenco and gypsy jazz.

one can draw any sound


I recommend this guitar for those who hesitate between acoustic and electroacoustic, and even electric. I use all three, and it is very fine. It's amazing the power without amplification as it is closed.

Truly an exceptional guitar, I regret my purchase at all (besides I got a 400 hehe).

Godin Acousticaster
Guitar made in Canada.
22 frets. To be clear, concise, I would say the handle of a Acousticaster resembles that of a Fender Stratocaster.
LR Baggs bridge transducer with acoustic electric, rglage output level, bass, and treble mdium.


Channel enjoyable, with a shrinking soignaccs to acute and playing comfort like a tlcaster.
The SETTING THE qualiseur are simple and effective and its easy rgler.


Modern instrument, both in design and sound with a mahogany body vid on which is mounted a massive table pica as a traditional folk guitar. At the indoor of the case, a lyre mtallique is fixed to the back of the table under the bridge.
The sound of the instrument is a compromise between an acoustic guitar and an electric.
Warm sound with long sustain, and much each DEFINITIONS NOTE.THE mahogany body gives it roundness and warmth.
Acoustically the sound is close to a folk trs petty cash. Branch on an electro acoustic amp or a PA system the sound is beautiful with a slightly acid cot that we like or we do not like. Your exact is the however, and the instrument of possde tural quality. The qualiseur and sensor LR Baggs rglages allow contrasts and deep in the bass and mdium, more nuanced in aigus.Avec or without rverbe is divine.


I used to play about 8 years and variation on Jazz. I couraging trs beautiful models in the studio with a sound recording directly into the mixer. It is not adapted to the style manouche.C is a sensitive instrument for a game of finesse with a touch of the finger and nuance. It is lgre and leaves quickly forget when you play standing with a strap.
I test a few sets of strings DIFFERENT: 10/46, 9 / 46, 11/48 ernie ball, 10/46 and 9 / 46 Dean Markley; 12/52 martin ... ... It is with the Dean Markley 10/46 I got the best sound, even to play jazz.
A model of the first I had thought, it is without the door and indoor ACCS lyre I bought used in 1990 for 4500 francs. I t sduit IMMEDIATE its sound its looks, comfort, so I cracked.
I'm spar to finance the purchase of 335 electric type which I wanted as long and better suited my style. I am very sorry, and I Rasht if one day I can afford.
