Here’s a very lovely gal with a hint of mystery, a 40th anniversary Godin Acousticaster Acoustic Guitar.
Her parts were hand-crafted in Canada then assembled in the USA, so let’s just call her “North American.”
Seller gives us a bit of history about her. The Acousticaster was the original acoustic-electric guitar that put Godin on the map. One cool thing about her is she has 18 tuned metal tines under her bridge to create her special sound. She a hummingbird, too—just six pounds.
She’s got a ton of nice features beyond her stunning top made of Cedar with figured Koa. Her neck is Rock Maple with a Rosewood 12″ radius fingerboard. Her nut is a skinny—just 1 11/16″ wide. And she’s got a tw0-chambered Mahogany body because, well, acoustic guitars need some hollow to holler.
In the electronics department, she sports a Godin GJN1 Mini-Humbucker as a Godin under the Saddle transducer and custom preamp with control out the yin yang.
But I promised a mystery and here it is. Seller is an authorized Godin dealer and notes that she is marked a SF—which stands for second factory—meaning she has a small cosmetic issue. Trouble is, the card where that defect is to be noted is blank.
So, is she a second factory or isn’t she? I’ve looked at her closely and I don’t see a damn thing wrong with her (but then I never could find Waldo either.)
She comes with a Godin gig bag and a full Godin warranty. She’s brand new.
