The SDxt is a bit of a jack-of-all-trades but unlike other instruments that attempt to serve a variety of purposes, the SDxt also manages to master several of them. For starters the hum-single-hum pickup configuration delivers a truckload of sonic possibilities. The classic, high gain. Humbucker sounds are superb and the single coil adds that 'glassy' definition to the sound not usually available in a humbucker-only equipped guitar. Sound isn't just about pickups and the SDxt delivers plenty of 'snap' thanks in part to its 25½" scale and rock maple neck. Abundant sustain is enhanced by the precise fit of the neck and deep neck pocket (all traces of paint, glue and finish are meticulously removed from the pocket to ensure a perfect wood-to-wood connection). The center block of Silverleaf maple in the body provides a solid foundation for the neck and hardware while the poplar wings on each side help to keep the weight comfortable. The floating trem provides stable tuning even under a heavy hand.
The SDxt is also available with the Godin Leaftop finish, which applies a highly figured maple veneer to the top. Quilted tops are available with the lightburst finish and flame tops are offered in blue. Maple or rosewood fingerboards are optional in all colors.
