Montreal, Canada (October 29, 2012) -- Godin Guitars has added a thinline, semi-hollow electric guitar to their lineup of Canadian-made instruments. Here are the details from their press release:
Montreal based Godin Guitars is proud to introduce its latest 6-string creation; an
innovative, stunning beauty that is only equaled by its sonic prowess…The Godin Montreal Premiere.
The Godin Montreal Premiere is a thinline, semi-hollow body electric and the
latest addition to the brand’s Signature Series. It features a Canadian wild
cherry top, back and sides, with an innovative spruce “breathe-through”
carved core. This unique feature promotes free airflow through the interior
center block, in turn, making the Montreal Premiere a supremely resonant
and vibrant guitar. “Over two years in the making, the insides of the Montreal
Premiere are what make it so special. Its breathe-through core is truly the
soul of this guitar. It’s so alive and has a spirit all its own. You have to play it
to believe it,” says Godin’s Sales & Marketing Manager, Mario Biferali.
The guitar’s resonance is harnessed by a pair of Custom Godin Humbucker
pickups, delivering a boatload of serious rock & blues tones. A no-nonsense
set up, comprised of a 3-way toggle switch along with volume & tone knobs,
control the overall sounds. Other features include a 24 ¾” scale, mahogany
set-neck with rosewood fingerboard, double-bound binding, high-gloss
custom polished finish, contoured high-gloss headstock with high-ratio
vintage style tuners, and ResoMax bridge system by Graphtech with stop
tailpiece. Color options include: Natural HG, Trans Red HG, Trans Black HG
and Sunburst HG.
A Godin Montreal Premiere with Bigsby® B70 tremolo option is also available.
The Bigsby® model features a tune-o-matic style bridge with roller
saddles and Trans Red HG finish.
The Godin Montreal Premiere starts at a suggested US list price of $1795.00
and is now available to order.
