Premium wood, craftsmanship, and MIDI-capable electronics land this 5-string bass in a class all its own.
This Godin A5 bass features endless sonic possibilities brought to you by Custom Godin electronics. The acoustic-electric 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 5-string Godin bass features a solid spruce top, for balanced sound reproduction. The silver leaf maple body adds strength and clarity to the instrument's sound. The rock maple neck adds plenty of sustain and definition from note to note. The 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 bass. The 2-chambered body design found in all of the A-Series instruments is also at work in the Godin A5 acoustic-electric 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 bass sound with natural-sounding clarity and dynamics.
Dressed in a semi gloss finish and featuring black hardware, this 5-string Godin bass has the natural look and feel of an acoustic bass, with a bold amplified sound that will blow you away.
