2/ The original Mini Humbucker was muffling and therefore was changed to an Amber MH Goldrush R (neck), 4-adrig, Gold-Cover

Even the Pickup frame was changed, for the original copper frame influenced the tone.

3/ Plekking the fretboard (at Haar Guitars NL) - See: https://www.haarguitars.com/plek-machine/
The plek process guarantees the best possible string action for each instrument, matching the individual style of the musician. A guitar with optimised playability just sounds better: the strings do not strike the frets during playing and any intonation problems that may occur due to too low a string action are eliminated.

Godin Multiac Jazz SA - Specifications
Dieses Jazz SA Modell ist eine vollmassive Gitarre mit sehr schöner Riegelahorndecke in AAA-Qualität. Sie ist sehr schön verarbeitet und überzeugt auch klanglich durch einige sehr interessante und ausgeklüglete features.

Neben dem magnetischen GJN1 Minihumbucker am Hals hat die Jazz SA auch einen hexaphonischen Piezo in der Tune-o-Matic Bridge. Dieser ermöglicht nicht nur authentische Akustiksounds, sondern versorgt auch den 13-Pin-Synth-Ausgang mit einem Signal.

Ausgangsseitig gibt es drei Möglichkeiten: Die untere Klinkenbuchse steht für den Humbucker, die obere für den Piezo und mittig findet sich der 13-Pin Synth-Anschluss. Wird die Godin Jazz nur mit einem Klinkenkabel betrieben, liegen im oberen Anschluss beide Tonabnehmer an und der Volumen-Regler des Piezos wird in dieser Konfiguration zum Überblend-Regler. An weiteren Regelmöglichkeiten stehen sonst ein 3-Band-EQ für den Piezo (plus Wahlschalter für die Mitten) sowie Volumen und Tone für den magnetischen Pickup zur Verfügung.

Während der Humbucker sehr voll und jazzig klingt, versorgt der Piezzo moderat hinzu geblendet das Klangbild mit Definition, Attack und Durchsetzungsfähigkeit oder sorgt in der Kombination der beiden Tonabnehmer für Strat-ähnliche Sounds.

Ein wirklich interessantes und vielseitig einsetzbares Instrument

Electronics
Although capable of producing classic Jazz tones courtesy of the Godin GJN1 mini humbucking pickup, the Multiac Jazz has the power to take you far beyond traditional Jazz guitar sounds. Each saddle in the bridge is actually a transducer supported by an onboard preamp and graphic EQ. The crystalline sounds produced by the bridge transducers can be used on their own, or very effectively in combination with the humbucker. A small dose of the bridge output can be combined with the mellow sounding humbucker to produce added note definition often missing in traditional archtop guitar sounds. The Multiac Jazz also includes hexaphonic output, which provides direct access to Roland GR-SeriesTM synths and the various V guitar products that RolandTM has developed around the same 13-pin interface.

Outputs
1 cord - 1 output (output #1)

The Multiac Jazz features a regular output jack (Output #1) for the neck humbucker. This jack carries the signal of the humbucker exclusively. In this configuration the guitar works in a conventional manner with a master volume and master tone control.

Humbucker and Bridge Transducers - 1 Cord in the Mix output (Output #2)
The second output jack (Output #2) is a mix output. When this output is used alone it carries both the humbucker signal as well as the signal from the bridgetransducers. When using this mix output the volume control becomes a master volume for both the humbucker and the bridge transducers. In this case your volume slider (see diagram) is a mix/blend control for the humbucker and bridge pickups. The tone control only affects the humbucker.
Humbucker and Bridge Transducers - 1 Cord in the Mix output (Output #2)The second output jack (Output #2) is a mix output.
When this output is used alone it carries both the humbucker signal as well as the signal from the bridge transducers. When using this mix output the volume control becomes a master volume for both the humbucker and the bridge transducers. In this case your volume slider (see diagram) is a mix/blend control for the humbucker and bridge pickups. The tone control only affects the humbucker.

2 Outputs - 2 Cords (Using output #1 & #2)
If both output jacks are used the mix output (output #2) becomes a dedicated bridge transducer output. This feature enables you to separate the humbucker sound from the output of the bridge transducers and run them through separate mixer channels. When these two outputs are used the volume knob is used to control the humbucker volume and the slider volume is now used to control the bridge transducers.

13 pin cable - 3 Voices (output #3)
The 13 pin cable can carry all three signals—humbucker, bridge transducers and of course the hexaphonic signal for the synth. All of which are then ouput from the audio out of your GR-Series synth into a PA/mixer or amp. When strictly using the 13 pin connector the on-board

Electronics work as follows:
Bridge volume, treb - mid - bass for transducer bridge, synth volume, program up/down (Equivalent to Roland S1/S2), mid selector 700 or 1600 Hz, humbucker volume, tone.

3 Cords - 3 Outputs (Outputs #1, #2, #3)
You can use all three outputs to carry out a dedicated signal into three different channels or amp sources. The same on-board configuration as the previous page applies in this situation as well.
