I'm not afraid to admit it, I've definitely developed a soft spot for Godin's acoustic instruments. I bought a Godin La Patrie cutaway classical guitar over a year ago which has been superb from day one. When my existing tenor uke decided to up & die on me it was a no brainer to replace it with a Godin Multiac Uke. It's a superlative product in every way, to which other reviews attest. The finish, balance, feel, weight and sound of it make it a joy to play. Beautifully set up right out of the box with a very fast action & perfect intonation all the way up the matte finished & very comfy neck it's the sort of instrument that is easily worth the asking price (and the included gig bag is of similar high quality). And yes, there's an honest to goodness truss rod,... which you'll probably never need to adjust - but is nice to have if you live somewhere where humidity & temperature fluctuate widely. Admittedly, being a chambered solid body instrument it's not as loud as a typical acoustic tenor uke when un-amplified, even so it sounds surprisingly rich and the perfect volume for practicing. And it gets even better... Plug this little wonder into an amp & the onboard electronics absolutely kill. The 3 band EQ (3 individual sliders for treble/mid & bass + a volume) allow for everything from a traditional bell-like tenor uke tone (if you push the top end slightly) to a wonderfully harp-like smoothness (if you push the mids & slightly drop some treble), all with tons of sustain. And yes, you can even push bottom end out of it (which admittedly makes it sound very much like a lute/classical guitar). Utterly noiseless & extremely versatile innards, which add inestimably to the value of this instrument. Just for kicks you can also distort the heck out of it & make it sustain like a Les Paul if you so desire,... seriously, you can get that "Parisian Walkways" sort of controlled hi-gain feedback. (Not that you'll probably ever require it, but c'mon, you know you wanna,... at least once.) If you're looking for a serious tenor ukulele, this is it.

Finally Godin has made available a Koa topped Multiuke. The electric/acoustic ukulele leaves my other high end ukes in the dust ( wood dust that is). Great finish, fret board is smooth and radiused, action is light and fast right out of the box, and intonation is perfect all the way up the neck. This uke is a bit heavier than acoustic ukes but is very playable with or without a strap. Although not as loud as an acoustic ukulele it is loud enough to practice with unplugged. Plugged in to a good quality acoustic amp it sounds fantastic, clear notes with sustain and very, very little noise from the pickups. Great price for a professional performance ukulele.

This is a very well made musical instrument. Godin has done their homework and have come up with a stellar product. I own K brand ukuleles costing over twice as much and none of them come close to this beauty. As an intermediate player I'm constantly struggling to get clear notes with good tone and this uke makes playing effortless. At $599 this thing is a steal!
