Godin Solidac, black, made in Canada 2002. Godin aren't afraid to push the envelope, they've been delivering some really clever guitars for decades now. The Solidac is designed to deliver both traditional electric and steel string acoustic style tones in one package... hello there 'solid acoustic', or 'Solidac'. First up, the actual guitar itself is well executed. The rich, dark red mahogany neck is beautiful to behold and is shaped to a comfy moderate C shape, it's easy to get along with. The easy-access neck joint makes upper fret access easy, and the neck is arrow-straight with great frets even after a couple of decades of play. The body is ergonomically friendly, well balanced and pretty light. The hardware is sturdy and reliable too, no corners have been cut. There's two output jacks, and they've put some thought into how it all needs to work. Use the top jack only, and you get the magnetic pickups with standard controls and the LR Baggs piezo blended in via the seperate volume control. Or, use both jacks, and you get a pure piezo signal from the top jack and a pure magnetic signal from the bottom one, so you can process each signal completely differently according to your many whimsies. You could potentially use all this capability to more effectively cover the acoustic and electric parts of Stairway to Heaven live on the fly without changing guitars... "and sheeee's buying a staaaaaairwaaaaaaay..."  I would more likely just use the piezo pickup to add a little extra detail, clarity and bottom end to the electric signal. Either way, handy stuff. Fender have only really just caught up with this idea via their Acoustasonic line, so if you wanna spend four times the cash for the same trick this does, check those out. Or... give thanks to St. Wayne Gretzky and nab this little overachiever.
