Montreal, Canada (January 14, 2012) – This January 24th to 27th at Winter NAMM in Anaheim CA, Godin Guitars will mark its 40th year as a company by unveiling two
Anniversary models: The 40th Anniversary Norman B20 acoustic, with a new tobacco burst high-gloss finish, and the Limited
Edition Anniversary Godin Acousticaster, with its stunning Koa or Rosewood top options. The new Acousticaster has been
updated to include Godin GJN1mini-humbucker, revamped top mounted preamp, and two ¼” outputs for Electric and
Acoustic/Mix. The Norman B20 was the first guitar released by the company in 1972 and the Godin Acousticaster was the
original electro-acoustic hybrid guitar released under the Godin brand and essentially the guitar that put Godin on the map.
