Hi from Australia. I'm planning to try out a Godin A4 this weekend, with a view to possibly ordering a fretted A5 if I like the A4 (the distributer says there are no fretted A5s in Australia at the moment, and indeed I'll probably only be able to try a fretless A4). I can (probably) order the A5 on a refund-if-I-don't-like-it basis, but I don't want to put the shop to the trouble unless I'm fairly confident that I will like it after trying the A4. So, I was hoping someone might have some comments about a couple of things I can't tell about a fretted A5 from playing a fretless A4: 1. How is the B string? 2. How is the balance of the bass? Some have said even the A4 is neck-heavy, but how much worse is the A5 (I'm assuming it is worse)? 3. How is the intonation? (Given that it isn't adjustable like on a normal solid-body instrument.) Any more general comments also appreciated (keep in mind I want the fretted version). Final question (for now): can anyone explain why there is such a big price difference (AUS$350 difference) between the cognac burst and the natural colour options? Is there any tonal difference in the materials used? I quite like both colours (don't like the all black version), so if all else is equal I will definitely opt for the cheaper cognac burst finish. Thanks all, Nathan.
