Construction-wise, this new Anniversary model is very similar to the original Acousticaster: a mainly hollow chambered body with cedar top that, here, is faced with a rather fetching koa veneer.The thin top is braced like an acoustic, but the difference is in the form of the 18 tuned metal 'tines', or prongs, that stick out from a spruce brace placed under the acoustic-like pin bridge.Two smaller rotaries at the top of the panel operate treble and bass EQ for the magnetic neck pickup.Then we have two (unlabelled) jack outputs: output 1, furthest from the base strap button, is the regular magnetic out; output 2 is a mono mix of the piezo and magnetic signals.Pickup-wise, we have an under- saddle piezo pickup and, new to the Acousticaster, a neck-placed mini-humbucker.This is an electro-acoustic that wants to reach out for lower volume electric duties, too.This duality is easily handled via the control panel - which also acts as a series of soundholes.
That first sound is very inspiring; a lot of songs are born out of that.

I took it by the neck and I banged it against the wall until there was nothing left.

Despite starting to build Norman guitars in 1973, it wasn't until 1987 that Robert Godin launched his first own-brand instrument: a thinline Telecaster-shaped electro-acoustic with an 'internal harp': the Acousticaster.
