I would like to know if that guitar is totally replication the string length, distance and feel of a classical guitar.

And also get any opinion you may have on it.

2 downvotes and no explanation ? I do not accept them. –  Skippy Fastol Aug 14 '12 at 9:09
    
Downvotes can mean a lot of things to people. They may think the question doesn't show effort, or is offtopic, or a range of other items. You kind of have to accept them though - that's the way a community system works :-) It is better when people comment, but it's not the end of the world. I think the question is a bit subjective and quite localised, myself - as individuals who have used this Godin may have differing opinions. –  Dr Mayhem Aug 14 '12 at 9:44
    
@DrMayhem: True :). But I did research the topic... Simply, I do Not have the classical guitar measurements in mind, so even checking Godin's specs in detail would not have helped. –  Skippy Fastol Aug 14 '12 at 9:45
    
I gave you a down-vote because you could have easily done a Google search or gone to the Godin website and looked up the information yourself. Most guitar manufacturers of all types publish measurements of their guitars and you could have easily compared the measurements of the Godin guitars with those of other guitar manufacturers yourself without posting a question here. –  Wheat Williams Aug 14 '12 at 22:39
    
You may disagree with me, but I believe that any question that elicits the response "Why did he not do his own Google search rather than asking this question?" will result in down-votes. –  Wheat Williams Aug 14 '12 at 22:40

Godin make about eight different models of electric-acoustic nylon-string guitars for different purposes. Some have a wide, flat fingerboard and scale length and string spacing just like a standard classical guitar. Some have a narrower fingerboard with a radius to it and narrower string spacing. They have detailed specifications on their Web site, with all the essential measurements in millimeters (on the French pages) or inches (on the English pages), so you can go there and read them yourself.
