1999 Godin Multiac Steel String - from the era  before they started using the bridge pins (and lessened the design).  It has the RMC pickups and the 13 pin connector for MIDI.  It tracks faster than any Roland GK pickup for Roland or Axon synths - I know, I have had ALL of them and every Axon and Roland MIDI guitar rig for the last 30 years since the GM-70. I also had a nylon and steel sting with bridge pin version of this guitar.  The nylon was great.  The other steel string was pretty good, but this and the nylon were the only two guitars that tracked well.  IMHO, when they started going to all of the newer configurations, it took a great product and lessened it.As for the acoustic and electric sound?  Beautiful!  Go on youtube and look for examples.  FYI, because of this design, it also works great with Nylon/classical strings. I found that out when I sold my Nylon Godin and heard someone had done the same thing with this model. I put classical strings on this when I wanted them for recording or something. The only issue with that is the nut on this has slots cut for steel string, and the nylon high e string will slip out if you bend the string too much.  If you want this to be a classical vs a steel, they I'd suggest widening the slot in the nut to accommodate the wider string.This guitar is in exceptionally great condition.  There is a small ding, but you have to look for it.  No fret wear.  Neck is as straight as an arrow.  action is beautiful - low, but not so low that you get any buzz.  I am selling it only because I have moved out of the MIDI and electric world, into strictly acoustic.  That, and I bought an expensive mandolin I need to pay for. The Godin comes with the original hard-shell case, in very good condition - except has some fabric scrapes that I actually did today taking the case out of the closet, which is kind of a bummer.  The guitar has never left the house.This guitar of this vintage/style routinely sells for $1000.  My Buy-it-now is over $150 less than that.  I want to make a quick sale.
