A jack-of-all-trades, and master of all of them, the xtSAs incredible sound power begins with three distinct voices: electric guitar, acoustic guitar and synth controller.

The xtSA delivers big time electric sounds via the Godin humbucker-single-humbucker pickup configuration and thanks to a special 5-way switch setup extra meaty humbucker tones co-exist with glassy split-coil sounds in the second and forth position. Turn down the electric output and raise the volume on the RMC transducer saddles and the xtSA becomes an incredibly authentic-sounding acoustic guitar. The acoustic voice of the xtSA is enhanced by an onboard preamp with a three-way graphic EQ. The two outputs are set up so that the electric and acoustic voices can be blended in the guitar using a single patch cord or at the amp/mixer using both outputs. The icing on the xtSA cake comes in the form of its synth tracking, which simply put, is the best in the business. As with all of Godin synth-ready instruments, a built-in 13-pin connector provides direct access to all Roland GR-Series synths as well as most other 13-pin devices.

All of this sound power would be a lot less interesting if the guitar didnt feel great and great is exactly how the xtSA feels thanks to the same 25 scale, mahogany neck used on the Godin flagship LGX-SA guitar. The ebony fingerboard is shaped with Godins ergocut technique and equipped with medium jumbo frets. The body is made from a silverleaf maple center with poplar wings and decorated with a figured maple veneer on top.

I bought this to go along with the Roland GR55. The workmanship is outstanding and the tracking on the piezo's are amazing. Using it just as a regular guitar through my Blackstar sounds almost as good as the burstbucker's I got in my Les Paul. My opinion only! The ebony neck is smooth and a joy to play, well built and thought out piece of kit!

I can shredd the living **it out of this guitar for a metal sound - yes it plays that well, then stomp on the GR-55 (or flick a switch on the guitar), and drop into a grand piano sound. It works awesome through the GR-55 into my DAW and VSTi's - in real time. The midi capabilities with the Godin/GR-55 set up are songwriters dream. I would look at owning another Godin guitar.

Of all the guitars that i own as a professional, this has to be my most cherished one. Quality and pride in workmanship shows in every detail. The tones and versatility of this Canadian guitar is rivaling the best guitars ever made. I should know, I work for the competition.
