Hey you Synth players out there take a look at this. Not only is it beautiful it plays fantistic and has the sounds of three different guitars. I know you've heard people say a guitar will do it all, well this on can and will. The quality and carftmanship is impeccable which is just an added bonus, because the playability and sound is incredible. This guitar is well sutied for all genres of music. Not only do I use this guitar for gigs, it is a fatastic recording guitar. I use it in my studio most of the time because of its versatility. If I sound a little over the top on this guitar, pick one up and you will see why.

Ok, I've got about 20 guitars and the Godin LGX-SA has the thickest neck of all of them. Surely very versatile instrument and well made but not necessarily the greatest. If you need a synth-ready guitar you might consider the Roland-ready Strat (much cheaper too). For acoustic sound nothing's gonna beat the real acoustic guitar - that's for sure. For electric sound the Godin is doing alright but if you're looking for a Strat or Tele sound then forget it. Also, the Les Paul isn't quite there too. It is something in between, sounding cool sometimes but I wouldn't use it as my main guitar.

    Comments about Godin LGX-SA AAA Flamed Maple Top Electric Guitar:

    I purchased this here on MF 4 years (hasn't changed a bit) ago and it is very difficult to find anything to top this. I have a fine Fender Strat with the same strings on each guitar but they feel amazingly different. The Godin practically invites me to play fingerstyle (which I love). No solid body guitar I've every played makes me feel that way. Plus I am pleased with the acoustic sounds (I have owned a high end Martin which of course sounded great but wasn't a dream to play, this guitar is). The acoustic sounds give me what I have always wanted, longer sustain. With my 40yrs of guitar playing I've learned many things. One is, one a poor guitar when the strings go bad, you notice right away, on a great guitar you don't. I've had this strings here at least four months. I had a Fender American Tele, I played on that what I play on my Godin, same settings on amp. The Tele sounded so pitifully I put it up on ebay that weekend. I stop in guitar stores now and then and try what they got. Frankly, I would have to pay thousands more this to top it, I'm not going to.

      What a neck

      By Mark Evans

      from Crete, IL

      Comments about Godin LGX-SA AAA Flamed Maple Top Electric Guitar:

      Think of the best SG or Les Paul you have ever played. I'll bet the neck on this Godin can match it for speed and comfort. The Custom Seymour Duncans were wound special for this guitar and the acoustic pickup sounds like a real acoustic, especially if you use phosphor bronze/steel Zebra strings. You can get a pretty decent acoustic sound out of steel strings if you would rather keep a light gauge steel set on the guitar. You can add the three outputs together through three output jacks and have volume control for each one right on the guitar! One output mixes the electric and acoustic preamp if you want to go with a single cable. In short, this is the best of everything. I would gladly play this over a Parker anyday. And it's very light.

      Unbelievable Guitar

      By Kathy Potts

      from wv

      Comments about Godin LGX-SA AAA Flamed Maple Top Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar basically to use in my studio for acoustic sounds and synth sounds with my Roland GR 55..and it sounds amazing and tracks perfectly. Ive read here and there about people having trouble with using it with a gr55..tracking problems and such...but all I can say is they must not have it set up right because mine work great and sound great together..the guitar is beautiful and very well made...and the seymour duncans are hot...again ..i cant find a single flaw with this guitar at all..it has become my favorite guitar overnight ...
      The guitar is beautiful with the maple top and is equipped well with the seymour duncan pickups..they sound great and so does the hexophonic bridge pickup. the the neck is smooth and the action is good..its one of the first acoustic/electrics that i've played that performs well both ways. then you add the synth and simply amazing.
      The guitar is solid and top notch well and is well made....everything works smoothly and I cant find a single flaw with it yet.
      I got mine slightly used for $1596 and it was worth every penny.

      Comments about Godin LGX-SA AAA Flamed Maple Top Electric Guitar:

      perfect
      iv played guitar for 25 years ive run the gambit or so i thought, i bought a roland gr-55 witch is great in and of its self,This Guitar is every guitar ive ever played and more .it came setup perfect the pickup was a little high but nothing to complain about i after 3 months of exploration this is the golden ticket .i bought a pod hd 500 and have a complete studio solution . all my other guitars just have had to sit in the corner and watch there is nothing this guitar cant do all the tones ive ever imagined plus all the synth and modeling ive ever dreamed the one thing that is the most amazing to me is playing the piano it sound so natural.
      came the bridge was a little high lowered it and had to lower the bridge pickup after that however the intonation was spot on no complaints here realy.
      after three months its replaced 4 other guitars and 3 other keyboards

      Comments about Godin LGX-SA AAA Flamed Maple Top Electric Guitar:

      Absolutely No Disappointment!
      Oh well,
      What can I say? Great sounding, extremely versatile . . . satinee Taylor neck, Gibson Jazzy, Fender Twangy, Martin Accoustic ie . . . It's a KEEP eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
      Do it all with 1 LGX. Great Accoustic, Electric, Mix, COSM like a variax, and even Twang like a Tele. This thing is loaded.
      I had to return the 1st one, guess it was built on a Monday, but Musician's Friend inspected and sent a PERFECT replacement.
      They really do stand behind the gear!
      My initial impression of the LGX is that I will be Ebaying the other six that this replaces.

      Love My LGXSA

      By Hurricane Ramon

      from Palm Springs So. California

      Comments about Godin LGX-SA AAA Flamed Maple Top Electric Guitar:

      Nuts and Bolts Never Looked So Good ! When you consider a similar made guitar by one of the major manufacturers you will pay about a grand more and still not get the synthesizer power this guitar has to offer . Synthesizers are her to stay so why get a guitar that can not cut it ! I have had one since 2004 and it looks great still and plays wonderfully . I play Rock-A-Anything - Jazz - Blues and who knows what's next inline because this guitar as it stands is a killer capable of things not yet thought or realized .
