Do you own a Godin 5A Ultra bass?

  1. Hello! I'm very interested in buying one of these basses, but I'm having trouble finding any good demonstrations of it online. If you have one I'd be extremely happy to talk to you! :)

    Have one of these and can recommend it, simply a very good and IMO underrated instrument. Got the Ultra version for the magnetic pickup, but in hindsight would be fine without it. Fantastic neck, great low B, sidelines being the best of both worlds (again IMO) and a very flexible sound that can do everything from Jaco-esque to an acoustic thump.

    So, what would you like to know?


    Edit: Forgot to mention the obvious. The A5 is primarily an electric instrument. It's acoustic sound is louder than a solidbody and nice for unplugged practice at home - but not more than that. The idea is to use the electronics to amplify its acoustic properties, and it does so pretty well.
