The Godin xtSA Koa Extreme HG augments the classic electric guitar design with a creatively powerful range of tones. A pair of Godin Custom humbuckers with a single-coil pickup between them ensures this guitar can handle an incredible range of electric tones, from traditional blues and country to modern high-gain rock and metal. But factor in an onboard piezo pickup that lets you blend in acoustic-style sounds with electric tones — or output them separately — and the xtSA Koa Extreme HG is prepared for anything. And that’s even before tapping into the onboard 13-pin hexaphonic output, which allows you to connect to Roland GR series* sound modules to access winds, percussion, and synth sounds in a live or studio setting. In addition to its dizzying sonic capabilities, the xtSA Koa Extreme HG possesses sharp visuals to boot. And once you wrap your hands around its 25.5-inch scale D-profile mahogany neck and catch sight of its fiery koa veneer top perched in front of your stage gear, the Godin xtSA Koa Extreme HG is one guitar you won’t want to lose track of.
Godin designed the xtSA Koa Extreme HG from the ground up to play and sound great. This gorgeous guitar features a lightweight silver leaf maple/basswood body with a beautifully figured koa veneer top to deliver rich tone and designer looks. This xtSA’s mahogany D-profile neck is fast and comfortable in the hand, and it’s topped with a Richlite fingerboard for enhanced note tracking when you get into the synth side of things. This guitar isn’t just super versatile — it’s also loads of fun to play.
Godin is famous for their smooth, fast synth tracking, and in this way the xtSA Koa Extreme HG is no exception.
