NAMM 2019: Godin launches Multiac Steel acoustic guitar

NAMM 2019: Godin has announced the latest entry in its Multiac line of acoustic guitars, the Multiac Steel.

Based on the design of the Multiac Doyle Dykes Signature, the Steel delivers authentic acoustic sounds with zero feedback, according to Godin.

It’s equipped with a custom-voiced LR Baggs Electronic system, with the ability to blend an LB6 under-saddle transducer with a Lyric internal microphone, while there’s also a Seymour Duncan Lipstick pickup, which can be introduced via volume and tone knobs.

Otherwise, the new model features a solid spruce top, dual chambered mahogany body, mahogany neck, Richlite fingerboard and white binding with a natural finish.

We rate the Multiac Encore Nylon as one of the best nylon-string acoustic guitars on the market, so we’ve got high hopes for this one.

There’s no RRP yet, but the Multiac Steel is due to hit stores post-NAMM. See Godin Guitars for more info.

The news follows two other announcements from the Canadian firm: a signature guitar for Phil Collins guitarist Daryl Stuermer, as well as plans to release its first-ever acoustic guitar line.
