Godin has forged a well-earned reputation with their unique line of high-caliber instruments. With the Metropolis Composer QIT, the company has broken new ground with premium tonewoods, design elements, and top-shelf build quality. Pick up the Metropolis Composer QIT and strum a chord — you’ll feel and hear the Godin difference right away. The Metropolis Composer QIT sports a large, dreadnought-style body with a genuine solid mahogany back and top and layered mahogany sides. The mahogany neck feels just right, as your fingers dance on the smooth-as-glass Richlite fingerboard. And the tone? Acoustically, this guitar boasts a powerful projection and a big, balanced sound. When plugged in, the Metropolis Composer QIT is amplified flawlessly by onboard Custom Godin QIT electronics.
With its solid mahogany top and back joined to layered mahogany sides, the Metropolis Composer QIT produces a warm, highly musical tone with an incredibly ear-pleasing resonance that will age gracefully. Slightly darker in sound compared to rosewood and similar tonewoods, mahogany generally serves up a focused tone with a full midrange. Mahogany is also beloved for its punchy midrange bloom and prominent, earthy sound without an abundance of ringing overtones.
To properly deliver the sonic beauty of the Metropolis Composer QIT, Godin took it upon themselves to create an electronics system capable of showstopping sounds onstage and in the studio. The Custom Godin QIT electronics accomplish just that, employing an under-saddle transducer, an onboard preamp, and a convenient tuner to capture the natural sound and expression of your playing with pristine results. For even greater versatility, controls for Volume, Treble, and Bass settings let you shape your tone to perfection, making the Metropolis Composer QIT a fantastic choice when you need an acoustic-electric equipped to handle any playing situation imaginable.
