These Godin models are used by working guitarists worldwide. They are very well made and deliver excellent performance.
The Godin Acousticaster uses a chambered mahogany body with solid spruce top to provide the response and resonance of a steel string acoustic guitar, and that's sensed with a piezo bridge pickup. It also has a Godin mini-humbucker in the bridge position to provide electric tones. The familiar and reliable Godin control set is immediately available to the right hand on the upper bass bout. There are two separate outputs for the two pickup systems, and these can go to separate channels inputs or amplifiers. The neck is maple with a rosewood fingerboard, and has a standard 25.5 inch scale length. The frets are fairly large as the Acousticaster is intended for players who need to produce both acoustic and electric parts. A gig bag is included.
Interestingly, the Godin Acousticaster is endorsed and played by Johnny Hiland, a prominent country player and exponent of Chicken Picking.
