Godin 5th Avenue Uptown GT and 5th Avenue Jazz
Godin's 5th Avenue series of Canadian made archtop guitars will see a few new additions at this year’s Summer NAMM Show including the 5th Avenue Uptown GT with Bigsby and 5th Avenue Jazz models. The 5th Avenue Uptown GT (left) is an archtop cutaway with a Bigsby tremolo, silver leaf maple neck, and a rosewood fingerboard. The 5th Avenue Jazz (right) features an arched back and top, a floating Godin mini-humbucker jazz pickup in the neck, and an ebony fingerboard.
