If you're looking at Godin, their multiaxes are pretty cool as well. A very nice hybrid of acoustic and electric in either nylon or steel strings. The synth models are very versatile.

  Every bit as nice as the T5.  So a lodgical question might be from someone well Andrew why didn't you get a Godin instead of the T5 of which I could only go  

go easy and get a semi acoustic, that being said, the Godin Fifth avenue guitars are made very well, and very reasonably priced.
the only thing keeping me from one of these is I'm holding out for Larrivee to enter this market and also having a 165 & 335  wacko As Kevin says very nice & well priced North American option.

have you considered installing a magnetic pu in the soundhole,something like the Baggs M1 would help give a bit more versatility.

I've had a Godin Multiac Nylon Grand Concert for about 6-7 years and really like it.  It does needs amplification.  I love the 2 inch classical neck for something different.  Never played a 5th Avenue.

Bob, I purchased a Godin 5th Avenue Kinpin II about 8 months ago. This guitar is very versatile, when amplified, the Kingpin pickups are very lively, I can get a very nice clean jazz, acoustic sound. It came with some 12's for strings, which were a little stiff for my liking, so I have lowered the action and installed 10's. It is real easy to play, and with some overdrive, it is a completely different animal. It is also has a nice Cognac Burst satin finish. I cannot think of any cons, other than it should be amplified to get the best sound, it sounds fine unplugged , but it is all about the Kingpin pickups with this one.

I'm know my old, arthritic hands can't handle a 2"neck...   really comfortable with 1.75"   ...  BobW...
