Godin Guitars has just launched the latest in its groundbreaking Multiac Series – the Grand Concert Deluxe. A nylon-string electro-acoustic guitar, it features an all-new preamp designed with LR Baggs.

Like its siblings, the Grand Concert Deluxe is designed to play amplified in loud environments without risk of feedback, with a solid piece of cedar sitting atop a dual-chambered mahogany body. It has a mahogany bolt-on neck, Richlite bridge and fingerboard, and a Graph Tech nut.

While the Grand Concert Deluxe can be filed comfortably in the hybrid electro category, its proportions should please classical and flamenco players, with a flat 24" fingerboard and spacious 2" nut.

But the big talking point is the LR Baggs preamp system, which allows you to take a natural sound from the bridge and blend it with the Lyric Mic. The new wave of  acoustic players and old-school flamenco players should enjoy its response to percussive raps.

The Grand Concert Deluxe has a natural high-gloss finish, is made in Canada, and ships with a gig-bag, priced $1,795.
