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 just bought my new xtSA (KOA) last week. I picked it up at L & M in London and I literally couldn't put it down for fear that somebody else might buy it! Little did I know when I got up that day that I'd buy the most amazing guitar that I have ever owned in my 61 years (48 of those playing guitar)! I have been into guitar synth for decades now and this Godin system is something that has always just been on my bucket list in life. I got it. It's amazing. (I still have some synth setup issues but I'll deal with that.) This guitar is such a joy to play. The pickups are perfect. The neck is perfect. The wang bar is pretty good pitch-wise. (It's only a week old so I know I'll have it working shortly.) Long story short - Thank you Robert Godin & Troops for an amazing instrument. My fav now!

My main guitar it does everything. Electric sounds,acoustic sounds and synth sounds. It tracks very well and I use it with a GR 55. No issues at all but I do find it a tad heavy at times (Les Paulish). Great guitar though love it !
