The Godin xtSA Electric Guitar with Synth Access delivers big-time electric sounds via the Godin humbucker-single-humbucker pickup configuration and 5-way switching setup. Extra meaty humbucker tones co-exist with glassy split-coil sounds in the second and fourth positions. Turn down the electric output and raise the volume on the RMC transducer saddles and the xtSA becomes an incredibly authentic-sounding "acoustic" guitar, enhanced by an onboard preamp with 3-band EQ. The electric and acoustic voices can be blended using a single patch cord or at the mixer/amp using both outputs. A built-in 13-pin connector provides direct access to all Roland GR-Series synths as well as most other 13-pin devices.
The Godin xtSA guitar incorporates the same 25-1/2" scale and mahogany neck used on the LGX-SA guitar (Product #511919). The ebony fingerboard is shaped with Godin's ergocut technique and equipped with medium jumbo frets. The body has a silverleaf maple center with poplar wings and is decorated with a figured maple veneer on top.
