Godin xtSA Trans Red Flame Top SF
The Godin xtSA is designed to be the ultimate tool for adventurous guitar players. It features a versatile H-S-H combination of Godin pickups, six saddle mounted transducers on a floating bridge, a 13-pin synth output, and very flexible switching. The xtSA is an acoustic, an electric and anything a synthesizer can imagine, giving the player practically infinite tonal capabilities in a guitar that feels and plays like the best of them.
This is a Godin Factory Second "SF" model with a small cosmetic blemish. The imperfections are usually very slight, and they cannot be seen except under very close inspection. Our customers are very happy with SF guitars, they offer great value, and carry a full factory warranty.
Heritage H-137 Single Cut TV Yellow
