The Godin ACS SA is a beautifully made semi-solid nylon-string electric guitar with synth access. Used acoustically it is loud enough for solo practice.
The neck is like that of a regular classical guitar but less chunky, with a nut width of approximately 49mm (1.15/16in).
The nylon-string output from the well-balanced piezo pickup under the compensated saddle is via a standard 1/4-inch jack and is controlled by a volume slider and 3-band EQ sliders with switchable mid frequency. Battery power consumption is extremely low.
The guitar can also function as a synth controller when connected to a Roland or Axon guitar synth using the included 13-pin cable, through which it also draws power for the synth circuitry. The fourth slider controls synth volume, and the two push-buttons correspond to S1 and S2 in the Roland system. I used to have a guitar synth, and this guitar tracks far better than any add-on GK pickup I have used. If you don't want to use the synth function you can safely forget about it though!
It is currently strung with D'Addario Pro-Arté hard-tension strings. This does not make the guitar 'harder' to play - on the contrary, you can dig in more (especially with a plectrum) without causing buzzing and tuning issues. They could do with changing, but I am including a fresh set plus a set of Savarez strings as spares.
I played this very guitar, with a plectrum, on this demo: Don't Speak solo
Comes with thickly padded Tribal Planet gig bag (with neck support), instructions, correct Allen key for the truss rod, and Schaller strap locks to match the strap buttons on the guitar.
There are a few minor scuffs and scratches, otherwise the photos give a good indication of the guitar's overall condition. The dots in the close-up pic of the bridge are tiny raindrops btw!

I recently got a used MB Super synth pedal and have to get as close as possible to the bass sound of "Thriller" in a couple of days! (It's a challenge, right?)
Unfortunately, my mac cannot run the editor since that editor works only with 32bit OS, and I had no idea.
So I was curious if anyone tried this before with MB super synth - using only presets available on the pedal. I tweaked the knobs and tried different presets, but no chance. Most probably I am missing something.
I use a Rickenbacker 4003 with a stereo jack so I can split the pickups, one of them dry and the other one wet (apart from the wet/dry knob on the pedal). Just saying in case it can be an important detail. Dunno! I am not actually an effects person, but wanted to experiment and got excited. I don't own any other pedal that can be relevant, only a SansAmp Bass DI.
For sale is a Panda Audio Future Impact v3 Bass Synth.
Bought the pedal in May 2020 and has only seen use at home. Never rehearsed or gigged with the pedal so is in excellent condition, as can be seen in the photos.
These are very powerful, very versatile synth pedals. Based off of the original Akai Deep Impact pedal and famed for its use by Chris Wolstenholme of Muse.
