This highly functional guitar is equipped with two Godin humbuckers and one Godin single coil pickup, which allow you to achieve a classic electric guitar voice. Achieve a classic rock tone using the bridge humbucker, that also has a vintage edge. A special 5-way switch selector makes it possible to get extra meaty humbucker tones and glassy split-coil sounds.
Acoustic Guitar Voice
As well as offering a classic electric guitar voice, the xtSA is also equipped with an acoustic transducer and preamp for capturing its unamplified voice. Each bridge saddle on this model is actually a highly innovative transducer. The signal from these six transducers runs through an onboard preamp with a dedicated three-way EQ with four sliders mounted on the guitars body. Achieve the perfect sound with this unique control board on the upper bout, that is not only extremely accessible, but also adds a distinctive appearance to this model.
