Yeah, i've seen them... they're quite nice. The bolt-on neck with a deep hollow body design is a bit odd, though.

This is going to be a hard one to pass by for me. *I have no problems with a bolt-on neck (I actually like 'em a lot). *It is an "interesting" combination though. *It may actually help the tone a bit, make it a bit more lively. *I've had Godins in the past (LGX-SA and Radiator) and their stuff is very nice.

We must have similar cases of GAS as I've been strongly considering a LGXT recently. *Currently, I can only control my Roland GR-33 with my Godin ACS and I'm wanting an electric synth axe as I'm primarily an electric player.

Do it!! *Do it!! * Do it!!

Ha, thanks for the encouragement, as if I really need it! *;-)

The LGX-T is nice. *I had the non-trem version just because I have my own opinions about trem guitars and their ability to control GK-run hardware. *I just feel that there's less possibility for stray notes and glitches with a hardtail. *Whether that's true or not, I don't know. *Lots of people have LGX-Ts and are happy.

You should be able to find one for a good price so I say back to you: *GO FOR IT!!!!!

The nice thing about the LGX-T as opposed to a regular trem synth controller is the LGX-T uses the piezo elements in the bridge for the synth pickup. If you're just using the Roland GK pickup on a pivoting bridge, when you use the trem, the strings move away from the pickup, increasing the chance for glitches. That's why Roland used to quietly recommend a Kahler trem, because the roller-style bridge didn't move the strings away from the pickup when you used it. The G-707 had a similar trem design.

The quality of Godin guitars has really impressed me... the ACS/Multiac guitars are fantastic (i'm seriously wanting an A5 Fretless bass) and some of their older strat and tele-style guitars were on par with guitars like Tom Andersons. For me, i find the LGX is a bit too heavy feeling, and the tone lacks something. But they're fantastic guitars if you like the feel and the tone.

I just bout a Multiac ACS Nylon guitar about a week ago for $755 Canadian.

It was listed at $1200 but it had a dent so I got them to take it down to 899, plus I had a credit for 278.

It's such an awesome guitar, Now I just need a good acoustic amp.

I play my Godin ACS through a Boss AD-5 and then either direct to computer (for recording) or through a power amp / PA cab rig for live purposes (which I also route the GR-33 through). *Boss AD-5 is a nice unit and the price has dropped a little - I think they can be had for $250 now.
