Loaded With Custom Godin Electronics

The xtSA guitar is equipped with an array of Custom Godin Electronics which offer excellent versatility to suit different styles. There is a Godin HSH pickup configuration consisting of a vintage-voiced GHN1 at the neck, a powerful and rocky GHB1 at the bridge and a balanced GS1 in the middle. There are also Volume and Tone controls on-board to shape the pickup's tone, as well as a MIDI volume, 5-way pickup switch and a 3-way mode switch to select the blend between magnetic and piezo. There are RMC Transducer saddles, which help with the acoustic voice's projection, as well as the on-board preamp which can be sculpted by using the 3-band EQ controls. Finally, with the Godin classic built-in 13 pin connector, players can have direct access to Roland GR Series synths and other 13-pin devices.

Combination of Beautiful Tonewoods

The Godin xtSA features an array of different tonewoods to create the perfect combination. The body's centre is made from Silver Leaf maple, which offers bright and tight tonal characteristics, alongside ringing projection. The body's wings are made from poplar for a well-balanced tone with a nice resonance; and the xtSA is topped with a flame maple veneer which enhances the overall tone with clean and punchy highs with good bite.

Mahogany Neck Paired With Richlite Fingerboard

The Godin xtSA Electric Guitar features a sturdy mahogany neck that yields rich and warm tones; whilst the Richlite fingerboard offers smooth and fluid playability. Richlite is a more sustainable material that was originally designed as an alternative to Ebony and Rosewood fingerboards. Constructed from recycled paper and phenolic resin, Richlite has quickly become popular with many guitar manufacturers as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional fingerboard woods, due to its fantastic playability.
