Overview

The high-gloss Godin A6 Ultra HG Semi-Acoustic-Electric Guitar boasts the innovations found in all Godin A-series guitars. You get plugged-in acoustic sound with the feel of an electric guitar neck, and a chambered body that virtually eliminates feedback in live and loud settings.

The A6 Ultra HG guitar also has the added "oomph" and full tone of a Godin humbucker pickup in the neck position. An an under-saddle transducer, dual outputs (acoustic and electric) that combine for a huge stereo sound and a Custom Godin preamp voiced specifically for the A6 Ultra HG help constuct the tones you want. The preamp gives guitarists tone control via sliders for acoustic volume, treble, mid, bass, and independent controls for the electric humbucker's volume, treble and bass.

Whether plugging into the single acoustic mix or in stereo (via both outputs), controlling your Godin A6 guitar's tone is at your finger tips. And the high-gloss A6 Ultra guitar delivers in all styles of music from jazz to rock to country as well as being a great blues slide guitar.

A solid cedar top, a 2-chambered silver leaf maple body, the high-gloss finish, a mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, and the comfortable feel of an ergocut back complete the Godin high gloss Ultra A6 guitar.

Includes a gig bag.

I bought this guitar in mid 2008 because my $5K PRS McCarty II Hollow Body was stolen from me when I lived in Seattle in 2007. At the time I couldn�ۡ���t afford to spend another $5K on a great acoustic/electric guitar so I began a search for a sub $1K good acoustic/electric guitar. I tried the Fender Acoustasonic and boy did it have some mellow tones but the bridge design is such that it appears to be slightly lifted at one corner and I just couldn�ۡ���t stomach that. After a bit of a trial and error process with other guitars I tried the Godin A6 Ultra and I was simply amazed at the sound and playability. It is by far the best tonally accurate production guitar that I have ever owned. I have it fitted with Thomastik Jazz Swing JS110 strings and I play through a Roland AC60 amp. When I am working solo or duet gigs it is my guitar of choice.

I returned mine because the pickups had a higher-pitched buzz sound (not like a single-coil hum though).

Great woodworking & play-ability though!

Before I bought from here, I tried the same model at a local guitar shop in Canton, OH & tried to get them to match Musician's Friend's price (to no avail; their loss).
The same model guitar at the local shop also had the same buzz problem.

Godin should had improved the design of the electronics in the guitar before production began.
And yes, my cables are top notch, as well as my SR-Technology Jam 150 amp (which Godin recommends to use this guitar with).

Musician's Friend provided Great service and fast shipping. I will still buy from them.

      Before buying it I was a little skeptical because I had previous bad experiences with semi acoustic guitars. But this model was all he wanted, good tone, good acoustic and electric sound good sound. In my presentations I use a Line6 POD 500X and that's all I need for a good gig...

      Comments about Godin A6 Ultra HG Semi-Acoustic Electric Guitar:

      Purchased the Godin A6 Ultra Black from GC on-line and had it delivered free to my local GC. I took the new guitar out of the gig bag to discover that the neck humbucker was left dangling in the pickup cavity. I had to remove the strings, remove the pickup surround, reset the pickup screws, and adjust the pickup height, which took about an hour. The action was a little too high, so I also filed the TUSQ saddle down with no problem. Intonation is spot on and it stays in tune with light to heavy playing. Initially, I plugged the neck humbucker jack into a Vox AC15 amp and the acoustic under-saddle piezo jack into a Fender Acoustasonic 90 amp using just a little reverb in both amps. The sound and tones were nice, but I achieved the best jazz-like clean tones when I plugged just the combo piezo/humbucker jack into the Vox amp. The acoustic guitar tones with the piezo pickup were very realistic. I used the neck humbucker to broaden the acoustic guitar tones. The humbucker only tones were fine but not very expansive. I did notice an annoying chorus effect when I played the 1st & 2nd strings alone. Changing the original electric guitar strings to acoustic guitar phosphor bronze (.11's) helped a little. The phosphor bronze strings also sounded better in my opinion, but I'm more of an acoustic player. The gig bag is of very good quality and seems to offer adequate protection. I'll probably opt for a Godin hard shell case later. I am very pleased with the Godin A6 Ultra in terms of playability, quality, aesthetics, sound, and value.

        Comments about Godin A6 Ultra HG Semi-Acoustic Electric Guitar:

        Been wanting one for a long time, finally pulled the trigger. I cant believe I waited this long!! I've rarely plugged it in so far and am having such a good time just playing it unplugged. I didnt like the idea of the bolt on neck but 3 seconds after playing it, that feeling passed. I ordered the fishman triple play with it and can just imagine what this thing is gonna be like once I do!

        Awesome! It is like having an acoustic/electric merged, but more toward the acoustic side. One of the he best sounding guitars I have ever heard,for recording, and for the price they could sell it for a lot more. 10 stars!!

        Godin A6 Ultra HG Semi-Acoustic Electric Guitar Cognac Burst

        By Frank Mauro

        from Lebanon, Ct

        Comments about Godin A6 Ultra HG Semi-Acoustic Electric Guitar:

        I recently purchased a Godin A6 Ultra HG Semi-Acoustic Electric Guitar Cognac Burst. I was looking for a guitar to play as a substitute for a full bodied acoustic. I was pleasantly surprise to find that is a exceptionally nice guitar for playing jazz. I would stay with the strings Godin recommends EJ21 Light Jazz (12-52). The pickups and dual outputs add a multidimensional level of sound control when played through separate amps. Neat idea. Also the fingerboard and neck are a dream to play. Just keep in mind this is an acoustic and you will only be able to do some semi-tone bends. I purchased this guitar from the Manchester Connecticut Guitar center. I can't say enough about the enthusiasm of the staff. A big thanks to Christopher "Ollie Twist" Oliphant.

        Comments about Godin A6 Ultra HG Semi-Acoustic Electric Guitar:

        Godin necks just work for my wide-palmed, short-fingered hand, so I own 3 ('98 ST1, Montréal, this A6 Ultra).

        Tone is good enough. I don't expect this to sound like a Collings OM, Taylor or a Martin acoustic. I play this guitar live with a Line6 L2T and use the Acoustic Modelling feature, which adds just a bit of tone thickness to this thinline guitar.

        I can go louder through an amp/PA with this guitar, than with my '96 Taylor 410 (Fishman pre-amp). I'm experiencing fewer feedback problems and can finally duel with the drummer and electric guitarist for sound space.

        Unplugged, it is still loud enough for me to enjoy, but not too loud for our sleeping baby. That's the practical magic for me: I can play acoustically raw when everyone's gone to bed and not need headphones.

        The kids find it easy to hold, due to the lightweight, balanced format. They find themselves wanting to learn now!

        I use Schaller strap locks, so the stock strap pins work perfectly for me.

        I bought a factory second, so got a break on price, which feels verrry good :)

        It's too bad the electronics are still from the '96 LGX era (made by LR Baggs). Godin has lots of affordable spare parts if you somehow toast the circuits, but it would've just been cool to have more modern, more easily customized technology under the covers. For example, don't dare change the humbucker to an after market one...you may risk damaging 1 or more circuit cards and will have to order a whole new set to get the entire guitar working again. (speaking from experience!)

        It's also too bad we cannot change the intonation to match whatever string you've chosen. I know, not a big deal, just might've been a nice touch to have a bridge that can accommodate string gauges (although maybe tone would suffer?).

        Overall, quite content with the positive aspects. Feeling sorry for the reviewers who didn't like the feel of a Godin guitar - perhaps check out their high end models like the RG Passion that feature less plastic and more innovation!

            A cheap guitar and is sounds like one. Only buy if you cannot afford to spend more. It will do the job, but only if you don't care about tone and fret buzzing. If you can afford more, buy a better guitar. This one is no giant killer.

                I can't put it down. The acoustic tones are excellent and the jazzy electric tones are superb. And if that's not enough, you can blend the two to your heart's content. I have no patience with the reviewer who said it feels cheap. The workmanship is superb. The neck wood isn't quite as hard a wood as maple, but that doesn't make it cheap. And if you want to nit-pick about the plastic tuning knobs, all I can say is get a life! I bought a Godin Acousticaster when they debuted back in the '90s. This guitar is just as well built, far more versatile, and has a smaller price tag. If this guitar had been made in the US it would probably cost double. Bottom line, this is a quality guitar and an absolute bargain. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
