    I love my Godin LGX which is now about 20 years old.

    I recently ran into these videos which I thought were pretty cool

    I didn't realize the LGX had been around for so long. A LGX-SA will be my next guitar I think.

    Yes. I believe mine is a '96 (I'll have to check). It was around the time when they first hit the states and I was looking for a good and versatile guitar. Mine has the piezo but not the synth access. I always regretted not spending the extra money to get that feature.

    I'm on the hunt for a used Godin Multiac.

    Here is a clip I did with a Nylon Multiac teamed up with a Fishman Aura unit:

    I think that the Fishman and the Godin together sound really good, much better than just the peizo pickups alone.

    Hi -- frequent lurker, infrequent poster. Last couple of acoustic live dates I did using this 40th anniversary acousticaster. I like it because it is thinner and lighter than most acoustics, I don't have to worry about feedback, and I can blend a bit of the mini-HB in to round out the tones a bit. The neck is also really comfortable. This is the third Godin I've owned. I have had two LG P90s, but I could never really bond with the tone (I have an LP special P90 that isn't as nice as the Godins, but nails the tones I want better now).

    Nice job, bluenote :eek:) One sweet-sounding equipment combo, there.

    I picked up a used Godin Session the other day and was quite knocked out by the quality. I'm not overly impressed by the pickups, but they can easily be swapped out. i'm still surprised how little attention the guitar playing public has paid to these guitars.
