The Multiac Nylon Encore is another hybrid or ‘crossover’ guitar with a 1.9″ nut width and was designed with live amplified performance in mind.

It has a chambered body which Godin says reduces feedback problems when playing through an amplifier.

The nut width is listed as 1.875″ (1 7/8” ) by some retailers and there is conflicting information in some of the official documentation so I contacted Godin to ask them about this and they responded saying that the correct size is 1.9″.

It also sports Tusq nuts and saddles by Graphtech.

The neck has a comfortable feel and makes it easy to move your left hand around.

If you come from a steel-string background and are looking for a versatile solid workhorse nylon string guitar for gigging, then this is a good starting point in your selection process.
