If you are looking for that ‘wow factor’, but still want something with elegance and big performance, this Multiac Grand Concert SA model from Canadian manufacturer Godin may end your search.
Despite having no traditional sound hole, the Duet Ambiance still has a good presence when played acoustically, although it’s hard to compare to a traditional nylon-stringed guitar. Thankfully we don’t really have to compare them, as the sole aim of this guitar is to make you sound amazing through an amp. And it delivers.
The tone is naturally warm and clear, and can be tweaked in a myriad of ways thanks to the versatile and wide-ranging controls, and blendable sound imaging. Another huge bonus is that, no matter how high the volume, feedback issues are almost non-existent.
The Godin Multiac’s engine features individual transducer saddles that are powered by a customised preamp system. This allows the engine to produce high quality amplified sounds and a hexaphonic output through a 13 pin connector that enables direct access to Roland GR-Series guitar synths.
