Godin's Multiac Series
The Multiac models represent the créme de la créme of the acoustic/electric guitar world. Whether you're recording, performing or just looking for an incredible plugged-in sound, these instruments deliver superb results. Several of these guitars are nylon string and the remaining are steel string. The various models are also distinguished by the two electronic systems used in the Multiac series guitars. The RMC-equipped Multiacs include synth access capabilities, and the Duet models feature custom dual source systems by L.R. Baggs.
Classical Concepts, Solid Body Design
This guitar blends classical guitar concepts with elements of solid body design. With an incredibly comfortable Mahogany neck, a chambered Mahogany body, and a Spruce top, it delivers plenty of resonance. And because the body is chambered, thisinstrument is virtually free of feedback, making it easy to use even when the band gets loud.
The neck holds an ebony fretboard with 22 medium nickel frets and offset dot inlays, and thanks to the deep cutaway you can actually access the higher ones.
The Multiacs that use the RMC Polydrive system can be recognized by the individual transducer saddles under each string. This system not only produces superb amplified sound, but also produces a hexaphonic output through a 13-pin connector, which provides these guitars with direct access to Roland GR-Series synthesizers. The key to the exceptional synth tracking of the Multiac lies not just in the electronics but also in the carefully selected and balanced blend of different wood used in its design. All of the materials used are the result of extensive prototype testing to achieve the best possible combination of plugged-in guitar sound and synth tracking.
All of the Multiac SA models are equipped with two outputs. The 1-/4-inch phone output works with a regular guitar cord. The 13-pin connector provides hexophonic (a separate signal for each string) output for guitar synth devices.
