Godin

collapse expand iconDescription

Godin is proud to present the redesigned A4 Ultra Natural Fretless Semi-Acoustic Bass: an instrument that remains true to Godin's high-quality build and design innovation standards. The semi-acoustic A4 bass is outfitted with a two-chambered Canadian Laurentian Basswood body, Solid Spruce top, Hard Rock Maple neck and Richlite fingerboard. The A4 is also equipped with a top-mounted thumb rest to ensure a comfortable playing position. What sets the A4 apart is its two-voice pickup system and on-board controls. This allows the player to choose between the low-profile Lace Sensor magnetic pickup for a modern and dynamic sound, or the individual LR Baggs saddle transducers in the bridge that offer an authentic acoustic double bass sound. The magnetics are controlled by volume and tone knobs mounted on the side of the body, with the LR Baggs saddle transducers being controlled by a custom-designed top-mounted preamp. These ergonomic sliders allow you to adjust volume, treble, mid and bass EQ, as well as saturation control to give your tone more warmth. There is also a "Fat switch" selector to provide a mid-low boost, which reinforces the presence. The A4 offers two individual output jacks as well as a combined mix output for added versatility.
