Does anybody know about Godin basses,in particular this model?
Well, sorta. I've checked out a fretless version. I thought it had a great sound and it was quite lightweight.
Do you have any specific questions?
Mainly I am just curious how they sound and play.I think they look awesome......the minimal look with the pup in/under the bridge(?)is nice.
Yes,I have a bad case of G.A.S.
By all rights I have`nt even played long enough to warrent buying more than one bass but....hehe
I haven't played a fretted model, but I have played a fretless one and I really liked it. It was very light and comfortable to hold/wear. I wish that the body was shaped more like the precision bass with a longer upper horn as the A4 pushed the neck a little too far forward for my short arms. The L.R.Baggs pickup and preamp system sounded great and with the furnished flatwound strings, I could get a fairly good upright/acoustic bass sound. The workmanship and materials were excellent. I had only one complaint, it wasn't my bass, although I got to play it just about anytime I wanted to for about a year while by friend had it. He sold it one day when I was out of town. I didn't even know that he was trying to sell it.
You know, the older models do have the P-bass style body with the extended upper horn, which I imagine would help with neck dive (unavoidable in these lightweight basses; I have a Renaissance that has the same problem). I find them from time to time on eBay; you could get lucky and grab one for $400-$500 (I picked up an Acousticaster on eBay for $400 about a year ago).
