Godin xtSA Synth Access 3-Voice Electric Guitar

Godin xtSA’s incredible sound power begins with three distinct voices: electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and synth.

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 positions.

Turn down the electric output and raise the volume on the RMC transducer saddles and xtSA becomes an incredibly authentic-sounding ‘acoustic’ guitar.

The acoustic voice of Godin 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 while using a single patch cord or at the amp/mixer via both outputs.

Also, the xtSA’s 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.

The Richlite fingerboard is shaped with Godin’s ergocut technique and equipped with medium jumbo frets. The body is made of a silver leaf maple center with poplar wings and is topped with a Premium grade veneer of highly figured Koa.
