Godin xtSA
« on: March 21, 2015, 08:08:52 PM »
i'm considering this one. Bit pricey ... Anybody have experience?

I thought it was set neck, but it is actually bolt on. I know a guy who has one, I've even tried it for a minute. Well built. sound is certainly OK, I mean, whatever, I'll surely be able to make something out of loads of possibilities it offers.
What bothers me the most is combination of the radius, which 16" and scale length of 25.5".
Squier Tele, I play the most, is 7.5"/ 25.5" and on X-155 is 12"/ 24.75". Godin would be the 3rd measure. On one hand, it may prove golden combination,
on another, 16" is equal to flat ... what to expect?

I'll see if I can get it from this guy to try it for a day, or two.

I think Godins are well built, unique guitars well worth the money.  I've played a few and really liked them.  This model I have not experienced.  Let us know what you decide.
