Amazing guitar.

Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar a few days ago. It's incredible. I'll never sell it (and I buy and sell guitars way too much). Has a really unique sound plugged in and I love it. It's loud enough to practice with unplugged, but it really sounds great plugged in. I'm like the other reviewer, I have a Fishman Loudbox Mini, and I think they're the perfect pair. I play 99% fingerstyle, mostly Chet Atkins/Jerry Reed/Merle Travis kinds of music, and this guitar is PERFECT for it (I sold my Gretsch G5420 a month ago and don't regret it at all now). Get one!

    Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've owned several Godins, and they have great necks. This is no exception, wonderful, effortless player. I'm an oldie (but a goodie) and the arthritis has a hold on me, and this ax is great. Easy to play, nylon strings help, and the neck width works well when your fingers don't bend as easily as they used to.

    The sound is very good, and somewhat versatile. You can get a rich, mellow tone for finger style that I like a lot, and also get that mid-range punch that Willie uses, and I find very effective for gypsy jazz styles. With a good PA or acoustic amp, and some experimentation, I think the sound works for a variety of music.

    Mine has no hum when plugged in, the electronics seem very good. My only slight criticism is that the fret ends were not dressed as well as I would like, but I don't notice that when I'm playing. All in all, a class ax!

      Great sound, great feel, great look!

      By Dylan

      from Crofton, MD

      Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Comes in a very nice gig bag. Right out of the bag the beauty of this guitar will stun you!!!! It sounds amazing when being played acoustic style but when you plug it in, it sounds heavenly. The tone controls on the guitar itself offer a variety of sounds that you can achieve. It's not too heavy, the neck is thin so it's very easy to play. The action is low, which I prefer so I didn't need to adjust anything. This is really a great guitar for anyone.

          Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I originally got the Godin for live performances to avoid feedback issues and of course this guitar performs great but was pleased to find that the guitar sounds great recording as well as long as it goes through a Fishman Aura preamp.
          I have to say that the Godin going direct with the Aura was equivalent in sound quality live and in the studio to my acoustic with a good condenser mike plus it's got a more versatile neck. If you can afford it, get the Godin Ambience but this guitar is the same idea it just does not have the Aura electronics built in. So do yourself a favor and buy the Aura along with the Encore you will need it for good sound.

          Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I tried a taylor for my first nylon but it fed back way too easily at high amplification. Godin's resistance to feedback was the main selling point and it's for real. But I've been equally impressed by the feel and handling of the guitar, the sweet sounds you can get from the electronics and the impressive bass it produces. I thought the neck might be a little wide at 1 7/8 but, because it's also thin, it hasn't been a problem at all. It's a joy to play. One downside is that, unlike my steel-string guitars, the treble strings ALWAYS go flat when the guitar sits for more than an hour or two. Is that a characteristc of all nylon-string guitars? I was a little annoyed that they didn't label the five electronic controls at first but they were easy to figure out and that no longer is a problem. Probably better that there's no lettering to rub off anyway. They might have been in French, right?

          Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          This is a great guitar for practicing at home, recording and performing. The only downside to this instrument is that there is an earth hum when connected to the amplifier or PA, at the time of writing this review I am unaware of how to fix this problem however I aim to correct this issue as the guitar is far too playable to be relegated to the back of my collection.

          Godin Multiac Nylon Encore

          By David Lincoln

          from DFW Texas

          Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I recommend this guitar.
          I am a jazz guitarist from the DFW area. I bought this guitar as an alternative flavor to my archtops, and I'm very happy I did. I have been very enamored with gypsy jazz of late, and own a fine Dupont guitar, but it's utility is minimal for gigging. The Multiac Encore, for me, stradle the line between this genre and traditional American bebop very well, and it takes me into Pat Metheny nylon sounds, as well. It records very nicely. Live it can be a bit touchy on the lower strings. It is less suseptible to feedback than a true acoustic, but it does have hollow chambers, and can feedback if pushed. All in all, it's a great sounding guitar.

          Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Purchased this a few weeks ago. I have had a hard time putting it down since it arrived. The sound is beautiful. It is a very versatile guitar.It does have a surprising amount of sound unplugged. I have been playing it through my Fishman loudbox and the sound is beyond compare. I purchased this to add variety to my collection. I am very pleased with my selection.
