Godin A5 Ultra Fretless

Recommended Posts

I'm seriously considering buying one of these, was wondering if anyone has any experience of them? 

Particularly, how acoustic the piezo tone is... 

I believe they're prone to neck dive...

Thanks in advance!

I have the old A5 fretless, not ultra. It is slightly neck heavy, but not to any significant degree. I mainly use mine acoustically, as the fundamental tone is so good. 

Not sure how the ultra electrics compare, but the A5 is a great bass that does a decent DB tone, played over the fingerboard.

I have the A5 Ultra Fretless. It's a great instrument. It plays great and the killer part is the tone: you get an acoustic-sounding piezo pickup, you get an electric fretless-sounding Lace Sensor magnetic pickup, and then you also get the MIDI capability. You need a (discontinued) Roland-style guitar MIDI interface like the GI-10 or GI-20 and a special cable to connect the two. Once you have that you can just plug a MIDI cable out from the the interface into any MIDI instrument you like.
