A comparison of the tracking abilities of the Roland GK-3 synth pickup mounted on a Taylor 314CE versus Godin's built-in saddle synth pickup on the ACS SA Limited Edition classical guitar. I'm using a Roland GR-20 synth for all sounds.

The Godin is a very well made guitar. However, the GK-3 simply tracks better on any other guitar. The saddles on the Godin produce glitches from your hand resting on the saddle area. This is something they need to address. What' needed is a palm rest of some sort that would elevate the picking hand above the saddles. Something along the lines of a Telecaster's bridge cover would work (although it should be much shorter).
