(August 16, 2007) – Canadian guitar maker Godin Guitars is set to release a new solid body electric guitar at the upcoming MIAC (Music Industries Association of Canada) show in Toronto.
The Godin Velocity features a silver leaf maple center with poplar wings and a natural, solid high-flame maple top unique to each guitar. It’s Godin’s first electric to feature the Godin High-Definition Revoicer, which revoices and augments the frequency range of each pickup and allows the player to go from passive to active pickups with zero-hum, noiseless high-definition sound. A Godin guitar equipped with the new High-Definition Revoicer system is like having two sets of pickups in one guitar. The Velocity has two Godin GS-1 single coils and an SH-5 Seymour Duncan humbucker. The Velocity also has a vintage tremolo bridge, 22 frets, optional maple or rosewood fingerboard and a 5-way switch. It comes in two high-gloss finishes: Natural Flame HG and Natural Burst Flame HG.
The MIAC show takes place August 26-27.
