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.

      Amazing DIY/semi pro smaller enclosure for you to put your future Impact into to save pedal board space. Comes with screen protector and rotary encoder protector to mount if needed.
      I paid £36 for it but have to come the realisation I'm never gonna get round to doing it and probably would take a tiny nano board out next time gigs started anyway
      Here's the link to the ingenious @GisserD thread on the development and production of them, we'll worth a read:

      Loads of cool interest sounds, 9 different waveforms.
      Great tracking. Stores 9 presets.
      Bit of cosmetic wear but working fine.
      Velcro attached to the bottom.

      I have recently come into possession of a somewhat worse for wear Tanglewood acoustic. It seems to be a decent, mid to lower end model, and I was hoping to get it up and running again, to let my lads use as a starter guitar. TSF-5X model, made in '99, according to the serial number.
      However, I'm not sure if it's actually worth saving, as there is a bit of structural damage to the top. On the bridge side of the sound hole, on both the bass and treble sides, there are the start of splits running towards the bridge. I'm concerned that if I re-string it, the tension will cause the whole thing to split!
      The dent on the lower edge I'm less concerned about, as it likely to be roughly handled by the kids.
      I have the Fishman preamp, and it looks OK, but there is no output jack. The bridge saddle is also missing, along with a few screws and nuts to mount the preamp and the screws from a couple of the tuners - how do you lose those?!
      I don't mind spending a few quid to get the necessary replacement bits, but if the top is a write-off, and there's probably not a lot of point.
      Thoughts?

      Hi Basschatters,
      Here's 'Angels Of Peckham Rye',  the new album by my band The Wood Demons. It would be great if you could give it a listen. 
      Many thanks,
      John
