Versatile semi-acoustic bass with a two-voice L.R. Baggs and Lace Sensor pickup system.

The Godin A5 Ultra 5-string fretless acoustic-electric bass is a redesigned model that remains true to the Godin high-quality build and design innovation standards. The semi-acoustic A5 Ultra is outfitted with a two-chambered Canadian laurentian basswood body, solid spruce top, hard rock maple neck and Richlite fingerboard. It is also equipped with a top-mounted thumb rest to ensure a comfortable playing position.

What sets the A5 Ultra apart is its two-voice pickup system and onboard controls. This allows you to choose between the low-profile Lace Sensor magnetic pickup for a modern and dynamic sound, or the individual L.R. Baggs saddle transducers in the bridge that offer an authentic acoustic double bass sound. The magnetics are controlled by volume and tone knobs mounted on the side of the body, with the L.R. Baggs saddle transducers being controlled by a custom-designed top-mounted preamp. These ergonomic sliders allow you to adjust the volume, treble, mid and bass EQ, as well as saturation control to give your tone more warmth. There is also a ‘Fat switch’ selector to provide a mid-low boost, which reinforces the presence.
