      Godin A5 Ultra Bass Fretless SA 5-String Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar (430658)
Availability:  


Premium wood, craftsmanship, and MIDI-capable electronics land this 5-string fretless bass in a class all its own.

This Godin A5 SA 5-string fretless bass features endless sonic possibilities brought to you by Custom Godin electronics. The 5-string Godin bass comes equipped with individual saddle transducers at the bridge and a 13-pin connector for direct control of Roland GR Series and Axon AX100 guitar synths.

The Godin A5 SA Ultra fretless bass features a solid spruce top, for balanced sound reproduction. The silver leaf maple body adds strength and clarity to the acoustic-electric bass's sound. The rock maple neck adds plenty of sustain and definition from note to note. The 5-string bass's soft C neck, cutaway on the upper bout, and 16" radius add comfort for intricate progressions.

Incredible acoustic bass sounds are available through the Godin bass's 1/4" output jack and controlling your tone is made easy with the custom Godin preamp section voiced specifically for the A5 SA. The 2-chambered body design found in all of the A-Series instruments is also at work in the A5 SA bass. This design resists feedback as well as the negative effects that loud stage levels can have on top vibration. The Lace Sensor low profile bridge pickup and side-mounted tone and volume controls reproduce and amplify your sound with natural-sounding clarity and dynamics.

Dressed in a semi gloss finish and featuring black hardware, this Godin A5 Ultra SA 5-string bass has the natural look and feel of an acoustic bass, with a bold amplified sound that will blow you away.

  • Love it!

    As reviewed by john barwick on 3/14/2014

    It came in beautiful condition and well set up. Immediately was able to get great sound and found it easy to connect with others in jams due to the fret less ability to adjust to tunings. Love the preamp and torn, is worth getting the synth? A little quiet when you climb to the higher registers with some sound loss but that's when you turn up the saddle transducers. Thinking about putting on some La Bella White Tape wounds for extra brightness but no complaints. I hardly pick up my 78 jazz bass anymore. Delivered as promised and surprisingly versatile.

  • nice sound

    As reviewed by cesar on 4/18/2011

    I use this bass for a solo show as well as our acoustic funk-hop shows. Its acoustic sound and electric feel gives the music a nice raw edge that hippie purists and sub-audible hip hop lovers all dig.
