The Godin Nylon ACS Black Pearl is a great guitar for live performances and recording and features:
Since this ACS Cedar does not use a body mic, the maple body is essentially solid although not of one piece construction. Even with a solid body the weight is only 6.6 pounds, and unplugged the volume is acceptable for quiet practice. The thick (1/4") Cedar has a nicely finished exposed wood bindings that contrasts nicely with the pearl black finish. The traditional 1.9" nut width will feel totally familiar to nylon players and the neck profile is a relatively shallow "C", making it easy to reach around for chords or finger picking. The finish and feel of the neck is smooth and comfortable, and the Richlite fingerboard provides nice snap, and is said to provide better note tracking when using a synthesizer. The headstock is nicely detailed and gives the guitar an expensive look.
Running in our Hughes & Kettner ERA-1 acoustic amplifier, the Nylon ACS provided very nice note definition and great string-to-string clarity. The sound was detailed without a hint of mud or murkiness, no doubt due to individual bridge saddle transducers. The 3-band EQ offers a greater range than the less expensive Nylon Encore, and even at fairly extreme settings the guitar remained composed without any boom or crackly treble that often accompanies piezo type transducers. Whether single note picking or strumming, each note seems to occupy its own space, and one can only imagine how good it would sound through a good stereo PA system. Like most electro-acoustic guitars, the ACS benefits from some type of aural exciter such as the BBE Sonic Maximizer (Sonic Stomp) or Aphex.
The 13-pin Roland compatible-synth output transforms the ACS from mere electrified nylon to personal orchestra. Whether it's piano, saxophone or other synthesized tone, the ability to add an additional instrument and even blend it with the nylon sound makes the ACS Nylon a killer tool for solo performers. Whether you use the synthesizer or not, the natural sounding tone, comfortable fit, and easy playability make the Godin ACS Nylon a totally satisfying high quality instrument.
