Godin has combined cutting edge acoustic guitar design with state-of-the-art on-board electronics and synth access to create the original Multiac Nylon guitar. The 25 1/2" scale, the 1 7/8" nut width, and the fingerboard radius-a slight 16"-all contribute to an easy feel for steel string players to adapt to. This has become the instrument of choice for guitarists of all genres looking to incorporate nylon string guitar sounds in their music.
The ACS blends classical guitar concepts with elements of solid body design. The incredibly comfortable neck from the Multiac Nylon is used here to achieve our most affordable synth access guitar ever. Although the body is chambered, response from the maple top is more typical of a solid body design than that of a traditional acoustic guitar. This design results in an instrument that is virtually free of feedback, making it easy to use even when the band gets loud.
The engine includes individual transducer saddles powered by a customized preamp system from the RMCTM Pickup Company. This system not only produces superb amplified sound, but also produces a hexaphonic output through a 13-pin connector enabling direct access to Roland GR-Series guitar synthesizers.
