feed back free nylon string with 13 pin output
Here's one of many innovative axes from Godin. The ACS-SA blends a nylon classical guitar with Godin's unique solid bodies, with a chambered maple body and cedar top. It features on-board electronics for a straight acoustic sound, and like many of Godin's instruments it features a 13-pin connector for use with guitar synths. Plenty of options here.
Godin's Multiac Series
The Multiac models represent the créme de la créme of the acoustic/electric guitar world. Whether you're recording, performing or just looking for an incredible plugged-in sound, these instruments deliver superb results. Several of these guitars are nylon string and the remaining are steel string. The various models are also distinguished by the two electronic systems used in the Multiac series guitars. The RMC-equipped Multiacs include synth access capabilities, and the Duet models feature custom dual source systems by L.R. Baggs.
RMC Polydrive preamp system with plenty of control.
Send a standard 1/4-inch output or use the 13-pin connector with Roland or other guitar synthesizers.
A True Hybrid
The ACS blends classical guitar concepts with elements of solid body design. The incredibly comfortable neck from the Multiac Nylon is used here with a Maple body and Cedar top to achieve Godin's most affordable synth access guitar ever. Although the body is chambered, response from the maple top is more typical of a solid body design than that of a traditional acoustic guitar. This design results in an instrument that is virtually free of feedback, making it easy to use even when the band gets loud.
The mahogany neck holds an ebony fretboard with 22 medium nickel frets and offset dot inlays, and thanks to the deep cutaway you can actually access the higher ones.
The Multiacs that use the RMC Polydrive system can be recognized by the individual transducer saddles under each string. This system not only produces superb amplified sound, but also produces a hexaphonic output through a 13-pin connector, which provides these guitars with direct access to Roland GR-Series synthesizers. The key to the exceptional synth tracking of the Multiac lies not just in the electronics but also in the carefully selected and balanced blend of different wood used in its design. All of the materials used are the result of extensive prototype testing to achieve the best possible combination of plugged-in guitar sound and synth tracking.
All of the Multiac SA models are equipped with two outputs. The 1-/4-inch phone output works with a regular guitar cord. The 13-pin connector provides hexophonic (a separate signal for each string) output for guitar synth devices.
