Godin - LGX-SA Guitar
The LGX-SA is
a three-voice guitar featuring electric and acoustic guitar sounds, plus the
infinite possibilities provided by synth access. The output from the bridge
transducer system in the LGX-SA produces six separate signals—one for each string.
This divided signal is called hexaphonic and is used to drive guitar synths.
The LGX adapted itself to this application quite easily. However, in addition
to the electronic modifications, the guitar itself was altered in order to achieve
the best possible performance. The most visible difference between the standard
LGX and the LGX-SA is in the ebony fingerboard. The use of the ebony fingerboard
improves synth tracking. Guitar synth systems in the past were technically complicated
and required radical changes in playing technique. The LGX-SA/RolandTM GR-synth
combination represents a new standard in user friendliness and performance.
This is truly a 'plug in and play' system.
