Godin Guitars Launch Limited Edition Acousticaster 40th Anniversary-Koa

Godin Guitars Launch Limited Edition Acousticaster 40th Anniversary-Koa -

The beautiful Godin Limited Edition Acousticaster 40th Anniversary Koa, is themed on the original hybrid electro-acoustic guitar that put Canada's biggest guitar builder on the map some 25 years ago, stunning the media and guitar players alike, with its ability to blend acoustic and magnetic sounds.  

Whilst celebrating Godin's innovative 40 years in the music industry, the new Acousticaster has many fine upgrades. Godin's on-going passion for exotic tonewoods is once again evidential with the single-bound, twin-chambered mahogany body and solid cedar soundboard capped with a figured koa top.

Godin guitars are also recognised worldwide by guitarists for their comfortable neck profiles, again witnessed here in rock maple with a 22 fret Ergocut fingerboard.

With a compact, small body design, 12" radius neck, 25 ½" scale, the 40th Anniversary Acousticaster has the feel, playability and sonics of a superior electric guitar, loaded with a single Godin GJN1 mini-humbucker specifically voiced for the neck position. To enhance the natural acoustic timbres, eighteen metal tines are installed beneath the undersaddle bridge transducer.

Godin's own Custom Pre Amp features a 3 band EQ, individual treble, mid and bass for the undersaddle bridge pickup and treble and bass for the neck mini-humbucker, while separate volume controls for each, allow the ability to blend the two signals.

For the best of both worlds within studio and live performance, the Acousticaster includes duel outputs: Mix/Acoustic and Electric.

Built from premium quality tonewoods, offering superb playability and exceptional acoustic/electric outputs, the Godin Limited Edition Acousticaster 40th Anniversary Koa, opens the door to a full spectrum of players and playing styles within folk, jazz, blues, pop and rock.
