Never before has a guitar such as the Godin ACS-SA KOA blended concepts of classical guitar with fundamentals of solid body design. The maple body complements the unbelievably comfortable neck used from the Multiac Nylon, and the striking Koa wood top is something to behold. The body of this guitar is chambered; however the response from the Koa top is more reminiscent of a solid body design than a traditional acoustic guitar. One of the fortunate byproducts of this design, is that feedback is practically non-existent making the volume of the band a non-factor. The engine in the ACS-SA includes individual transducer saddles powered by a customized preamp system from the RMCTM Pickup Company. The system creates a superior amplified sound, and also manufactures a hexaphonic output through a 13-pin connector enabling direct access to RolandTM GR-Series guitar synthesizers.
