Instrument Categories: , , , ,

The Godin ACS SA Grand Concert Duet Classical Electric, part of the Multiac line,  is a descendant of the Gibson Chet Atkins CEC, the Cutaway Electric Classical.   While Gibson eventually dropped the design,  Godin picked it up and with some practical changes such as a bolt-on neck and a mix of piezo and synthesizer pickups have turned it into a very popular instrument used by performers worldwide.

Built in Quebec, the Godin ACS SA Grand Concert Duet features a solid Cedar top on a chambered Mahogany body, a Maple neck with Richlite used for the fingerboard and bridge. The fingerboard has a 24 inch radius crown, but a two-inch nut width. It is aimed towards players who need the performance and responsiveness of nylon strings, but play in a stage-volume context where feedback can be a significant issue. The chambered body provides substantial feedback resistance.

There are a number of versions of the Multiac design, many based on the electronics installed. This Godin ACS SA Grand Concert Duet has the Synth pickup output plus hidden pickups in the body, and a preamp with controls conveniently located on the bass side of the fingerboard tag. The preamp battery access is conveniently located on the back of the guitar.

The Godin ACS SA Grand Concert Duet is sold with its original gig bag.

Here is the builder on the Godin ACS Grand Concert:

“If you are an electric player in the market for a nylon-string guitar with an ultra-easy-to-play neck and outstanding Synth or midi capabilities, then the Godin ACS Grand Concert is the right choice for you. The ACS has long been a pioneer as a nylon-string/synth guitar that can do it all in terms of Latin or other World music styles ranging from the four corners of the globe. The latest rendition of the ACS now comes in a Grand Concert format with a 2-inch nut width, a redesigned body shape, and a longer scale length. All the while, it still remains an affordable Multiac alternative packed with great features for the modern musician. The engine in the ACS Grand Concert includes individual transducer saddles powered by a customized preamp system by LR Baggs™. This system not only produces superb amplified sound, but also produces a hexaphonic output through a 13-pin connector enabling direct access to RolandTM GR-Series guitar synthesizers. “
