Subject: RE: godin multiac steel
Godin makes some nice axes. I have a five string bass (frets pulled) and used to have a four string one too. Their family of acoustics and electrics are good bang for the buck in Canada, and many (maybe 20 or more) of my students use them. Have also had the S&P and Norman guitars as beaters and am waiting on delivery of an Art & Luthiery as the same.

As for the Multiac, the ones I've played have all felt great in the hands, the ones I've heard have all had that compromise acoustic/electric sound and much better than average in that regard. Not a bad choice if plug-in convenience, light weight, less bulk, synth access, and good looks are considerations. I prefer the Multiac Jazz or the Nylon (radiused fretboard), but the others are nice too. For the money and features, take a look at the ACS series.

If it's the acoustic nature you're looking for, consider the contributions of a dedicated acoustic amp. Run of the mill electric amps don't often flatter acoustic guitars.

Peace, Mooh.
