Godin A4/5 Enthusiasts
Are there any Godin A4/5 enthusiasts out there? I have been thinking along the following lines and wondered if anyone has some input.
One of the regular gigs I play would really benefit from an upright bass sound, but I'm an electric player. I'm not really keen to start lugging around even a 1/2 size upright bass (or even a second bass if I'm not forced to. I heard some of the sounds capable on a Roland GR-55 synth unit and one of them was an upright bass sound. It was pretty amazing and would be good enough for my gig. I would have to build a synth rig from the ground up, so my thought was a Godin A5 paired with the Roland GR-55 unit. That way I could go with the "normal" electric bass sound and the synth upright sound. The side benefit would be I could get a Godin XTSA six-string for those guitar gigs. Very versatile rig.
If anyone has experience, I'd appreciate hearing the pros and cons of such a combination with that goal in mind.
