The Godin Rialto JR Satina Gray HG Q-Discrete is a deceptively small acoustic-electric guitar with full-sized tone and eye-popping modern styling. Its solid Sitka spruce top yields a broad dynamic range and direct, punchy tone, while its Canadian wild cherry body lends a clean articulation to your playing. What’s more, the mid-forward character of its parlor-sized body cuts through a busy mix like a hot knife through butter. Its Richlite-capped silver leaf maple neck supplies easy playability that complements its comfortable body. The Rialto JR delivers top-notch amplified tone, thanks to EPM Q-Discrete electronics. An attractive high-gloss finish completes the Rialto JR Satina Gray HG Q-Discrete.
Comfortable parlor-sized body yields a great midrange-focused sound
The Rialto JR features a parlor-sized body. The parlor body style is narrower and shallower than a dreadnought, which makes it comfortable to play — especially for smaller guitarists. It’s devoid of the booming lows that can muddy up a performance, which makes it a popular choice for acoustic blues players and singer-songwriters. What’s more, the Rialto JR’s midrange-focused sound really pops out in a busy mix, making it a great choice for tracking in the studio.
EPM Q-Discrete electronics yield amazing sound onstage
Godin is renowned for incorporating groundbreaking pickups into their acoustic-electric guitars, and the Rialto JR is no exception. Take this parlor-sized marvel onstage, and you’ll enjoy rich, natural acoustic tone, thanks to its EPM Q-Discrete electronics. And — taking a cue from tried-and-true electric guitar designs — the Rialto JR’s volume and tone controls are located conveniently on its top, making tonal adjustments a piece of cake.
