What Makes Godin G-Tour Nylon Guitar so Special?

Guitarists who want the comfort of a contemporary axe will love the Godin G Tour Nylon acoustic-electric guitar. While the Godin G-Tour has deluxe cedar, maple tonewoods, and nylon strings, it has the feel and style of an electric guitar. In spite of their different shapes, these nylon-string instruments deliver authentic nylon-string tones.

With a powerful EPM Q-Discrete pickup system and a volume/tone knob duo, you’ll be able to dial in the perfect sound. Additionally, your G-Tour’s appearance won’t be compromised by unsightly electronics under the hood. If you’ve never played classical guitar on a tried-and-true chassis, the Godin G Tour Nylon guitar is for you.

Acoustic or Electric?

It’s technically both, but the nylon strings make it seem like the latter. The contoured double-cut shape may look like an electric guitar, but its solid cedar, hard-rock maple, and silver leaf maple tonewoods propel a warm nylon tone. When the electronics are off, the G-Tour just functions as a classical nylon guitar. Do you want to explore the wonderful world of acoustic instruments? You’ve come to the right place thanks to the G-Tour.

Godin G Tour Nylon details

Inconspicuous Pickup Control

A Q-Discrete active electronics system is hidden inside the G-Tour’s fan-braced body. There’s a master volume and tone knob up top, so you can get the perfect classical-inspired sound for any occasion. Best of all, the Q-Discrete lies just under the soundhole and provides massive acoustic output with no electronics.

Improved Instrument Hardware

Its optimized hardware ensures that you get the job done in any scenario, whether you use it as an acoustic road warrior or a stage companion. “C”-profile neck gives you that familiar electric feel while letting you access the entire fretboard. Tuning machines with sealed tuning mechanisms allow easy intonation adjustment and keep you in tune all day long.

A rosewood saddle and top-hat gold bridge pins give the G-Tour a truly authentic tone, making it a great electric or acoustic guitar. Regardless of how you play or what your musical preferences are, the G-Tour is a high-performance instrument.
