OVERVIEW

A solid cedar top with custom voiced electronics at a breakthrough price.

The Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar brings Multiac quality to a new price point for nylon string players. It features a two chambered silver leaf maple body with poplar wings and a solid cedar top that produce a warm and vibrant tone. The neck is wide enough for classical players yet slim and comfortable for electric guitarists as well.

The Multiac Encore's electronics are custom voiced, combining a sound imaging mic with 4 individual mic settings and an undersaddle transducer. A dual source pre-amp with volume, EQ, feedback control, and blend permits an infinite range of acoustic nylon tones.

Godin continues to innovate in their much-appreciated Multiac line. With the Multiac Nylon Encore Guitar, they've created a value-packed, stage-ready instrument that will appeal to all performing guitarists seeking new inspiration and sonic territories to explore.

Includes a gig bag.

        Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I originally got the Godin for live performances to avoid feedback issues and of course this guitar performs great but was pleased to find that the guitar sounds great recording as well as long as it goes through a Fishman Aura preamp.
        I have to say that the Godin going direct with the Aura was equivalent in sound quality live and in the studio to my acoustic with a good condenser mike plus it's got a more versatile neck. If you can afford it, get the Godin Ambience but this guitar is the same idea it just does not have the Aura electronics built in. So do yourself a favor and buy the Aura along with the Encore you will need it for good sound.

        Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I tried a taylor for my first nylon but it fed back way too easily at high amplification. Godin's resistance to feedback was the main selling point and it's for real. But I've been equally impressed by the feel and handling of the guitar, the sweet sounds you can get from the electronics and the impressive bass it produces. I thought the neck might be a little wide at 1 7/8 but, because it's also thin, it hasn't been a problem at all. It's a joy to play. One downside is that, unlike my steel-string guitars, the treble strings ALWAYS go flat when the guitar sits for more than an hour or two. Is that a characteristc of all nylon-string guitars? I was a little annoyed that they didn't label the five electronic controls at first but they were easy to figure out and that no longer is a problem. Probably better that there's no lettering to rub off anyway. They might have been in French, right?

        Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        This is a great guitar for practicing at home, recording and performing. The only downside to this instrument is that there is an earth hum when connected to the amplifier or PA, at the time of writing this review I am unaware of how to fix this problem however I aim to correct this issue as the guitar is far too playable to be relegated to the back of my collection.

        Godin Multiac Nylon Encore

        By Dave Lincoln

        from DFW Texas

        Comments about Godin Multiac Nylon Encore Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I recommend this guitar.
        I am a jazz guitarist from the DFW area. I bought this guitar as an alternative flavor to my archtops, and I'm very happy I did. I have been very enamored with gypsy jazz of late, and own a fine Dupont guitar, but it's utility is minimal for gigging. The Multiac Encore, for me, stradle the line between this genre and traditional American bebop very well, and it takes me into Pat Metheny nylon sounds, as well. It records very nicely. Live it can be a bit touchy on the lower strings. It is less suseptible to feedback than a true acoustic, but it does have hollow chambers, and can feedback if pushed. All in all, it's a great sounding guitar.
