SOLD Godin ACS SA electro-classical guitar with synth access
£625
Swindon

Recommended Posts

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 demoDon'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!

Price is £625 £575 £525 collected from Swindon, Wiltshire. I can't offer courier delivery as I don't have a hard case so as to be able to insure against damage. However, I may be able to deliver to your home or workplace in person for a contribution towards my diesel costs - PM me with your location if you want to discuss this option. No trades thanks.

I've just found a Roland GK 13-pin cable - happy to include this if it will be useful to the buyer.

Very interesting instrument. Do my eyes deceive me, or is the fingerboard slightly radiused? That should make for great playability.

Yes the fretboard is radiused, I estimate between 15 and 20 inches.

      For Sale - Godin ACS Slim Cedar Black SF
      Bought this gorgeous slimline classical guitar on a whim three weeks ago on the 18th of May from Peach guitars at a reduced price of £999 as it was considered a cosmetic factory second. I’ve looked all over the guitar but can barely see a mark that I would consider as a cosmetic flaw, there is a very fine scratche on the back but you can only see them if you angle the guitar into light (see pic# 7, pic# 6 shows where the scratch is). I got the guitar home and put it straight in the rack, notice how unblemished the fretboard is and that’s because it hasn’t been played at all, it is unused and in the same condition it was in the shop. These guitars are well over a grand new and you are would be getting it for £149 less than I paid simply because I brought it home! Godin gigbag included, no trades and this is a firm price. This is in too good condition to risk a courier, I am prepared to deliver or meet half way depending on distance.
      Here is the ad on the Peach Guitars website, they obviously had a few of these.

      Had this listed recently and thought it sold but the buyer decided not to go ahead with the sale so it's back up again.

      Such a bloody useful little amp, great for electric and acoustic guitar as well as bass, built in effects & tuner, can be used as a USB recording interface or even as a stereo bluetooth speaker, it's the amp you didn't know you needed!
      In very good condition although there is a little light curling to some of the Tolex edges on the rear and the odd ding on the back too, nothing serious, I've photographed them.
      £120.00 delivered to the UK mainland, less if you'd like to collect it from London SE26.

      Very nice synth/octave pedal, built like a tank!
      It's no FI killer, thou the tracking is easily as good, but it's a great sounding and highly useable midrange option for synth sounds.
      Save and recall 12 presets.
      Tweak the major parameters from the knobs.
      Connects to computer by USB for deep editing of waveforms/filters and loading /saving patches.
      Comes with 12V power adapter, not the original one but works fine.
      Includes UK postage.

      Hi all,
      I've only had this for a short while, but I already know it's not the right fit for me. Honestly, this thing is INCREDIBLE, but it's just not fitting in place for the project I picked it up for.

      Loads of buzz and videos online for anyone looking for a very different synth pedal that does a touch of OC2 octave tone, a touch of Moog FreqBox vibe and some crazy envelope swells. Utterly mad. The pedal is in great condition, as per pics.

      I'd like back what I paid for it little more than a week ago - £175. The pedal can be collected in Derby, or posted in the UK for £5. SOLD!
      Any questions, let me know!
      Shep
