Canadian based Godin Guitars is continually evolving and innovating the art of guitar making and craftsmanship. Such is the case with the new Godin A-series semi-acoustic basses, now with an added bonus for bass players—13-pin capabilities.

The Godin A-series is a favorite among players looking for plugged-in acoustic sound with an electric feel. The new A4 & A5 Synth Access basses add a new dimension to that concept, with Custom Godin electronics and a 13-pin output jack to access a multitude of 13-pin devices and computers via MIDI. The synth-ready feature of these basses is a definite bonus, but it also delivers acoustic bass sounds by simply plugging into the 1/4" output jack. Tones ranging from jazz, country, rock and stand-up bass inspired sounds are possible.

Controlling your tone is made easy with the Custom Godin pre-amp section voiced specifically for the A4 and A5 SA, with on-board sliders for treble, mid, bass, acoustic, and synth volume as well as program up/down buttons to choose between your synth patches.

The well-balanced A4 and A5 SA are available in either a fretted or fretless model with 4 or 5 strings. Features include a rosewood fingerboard on the fretted model and an ebony fingerboard on the fretless model, both of which rest atop the comfort of a Godin rock maple neck. Other features are a newly designed angled bridge that houses the custom Godin saddle transducers, a solid spruce top and a silver leaf maple body with a two-chambered body design found in all Godin A-series models. This chambered design makes the instrument virtually feedback free in live and loud settings.
