How Many Guitar Tones Do You Need? All of Them!

Want a plethora of guitar tones out of one amazing axe? That's right, you heard us - a PLETHORA of amazing guitar tones. Yup. A whole bunch. That's what you get when you pick up Godin's awesome LGXT solidbody! This jaw-dropper of a 6-string has it all: pro-grade construction (a top-notch Silver Leaf maple body and neck, and a deluxe ebony fingerboard); a very stable (and totally rocking) tremolo bridge; two amazing Seymour Duncan custom humbuckers; a transducer pickup (for acoustic-style tones); and even a seperate SYNTH pickup for each string. You'll be blown away by all the potential tones at your disposal!

Not only do you get a whole bundle of awesome tones - you also get the killer controls to put them at your command. The LGXT has a 5-way pickup switch plus volume and tone controls for the analog side. You can also adjust the acoustic-style transducer's volume, treble, midrange, and bass. And, if all this weren't enough, you even get synth volume and program up/down controls! That's a massive amount of control! Plug into the magnetic output for rockin' analog tones, or choose the 13-pin synth output and take this baby to other sonic worlds. You get all this great stuff inside a beauty of a guitar that plays like an absolute dream. Get a Godin and find out how great you can sound!

Godin LGXT Black Pearl

Written by Denver B. from Calgary, AB Canada

Music Background: 14 years of classical, fingerstyle, tech death, jazz, prog, or "other"
I bought my Godin 2 days ago, "used" from some guy off Kijiji, but I don't think he even knew how to play, so it's virtually untouched. Everything about this guitar feels and plays like an extremely expensive guitar, even though it's only kinda expensive (MSRP @ $2200 approx.) The guitarist in my old band played a MusicMan JP6 BFR (the really expensive one, like 4000 list or something ridiculous l... read more [+]ike that) and, hand to God(in), the LGXT plays kinda like that. To me how a guitar sounds isn't as important (still important, just not AS important) as how the neck and ergonomics of everything feels. This axe is just grade A badass. Everything has a pretty intuitive feel to it, however it's very sensitive, and slight imperfections in your playing will become more obvious. So once you learn how to play her (took me about an hour I guess), you don't want to put her down! The one downside to that is that I was standing in front of a mirror, rockin out for about 6 hours haha and I actually hurt my shoulder because it weighs so much.

Besides everything else, I also really like how it's such an unknown company really. Even here in Canada, where the company is based (although they're from eastern canada and I live in western canada) not many people have heard of Godin, let alone seen or played one.

4.5/5 stars
- PRO: price to playability ratio is quite excellent, built like a tank, tons of options like harmonic transducer (fancy for Piezo), and MIDI support, godlike sustain (held a fretted note on the high E for 11 seconds), really well rounded jack-of-all-trades, master of all. Sounds deadly and is also possibly the most attractive object I have ever seen.
- CON: heavy, clocking in at 16lbs. Whatever. Back of the neck is sticky if your hands aren't completely dry. I'm thinking of oiling it to see if it helps.

Cheryl... Around here, none of us wear power ties, and power lunches are few and far between. But when the Power Rangers are unavailable, and PowerBall just isn't bringing the money home like you hoped it would, it's great to remember that the powerful GearNuts.com store is here for all your power adapter needs!
