Richmond Guitars Canada Unveiled

A A

Montreal, Canada (March 25, 2008) - Check it out -- there''s a new brand of guitars on the scene: Richmond Guitars Canada. These retro beauties are brought to you by the folks at Godin, who now have seven lines in their family.

Unveiled at Musikmesse 2008 in Frankfurt, the Richmond line consists of its first two models: the Belmont and the Dorchester.  Made in Richmond Quebec Canada by a dedicated team of guitar craftsmen, the Richmond Belmont and Dorchester models exemplify serious tone for players looking for a vintage vibe backed by meticulous craftsmanship, innovation and modern playability. These “Titans of Tone” conjure up seminal classic rock images from the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s, while giving players all the sonic bliss they could ask for.

The sizzling Belmont with its 24 ¾” scale and solid mahogany body features two single coil Lipstick pickups along with the vintage bite of a Seymour Duncan ’59 humbucker in the bridge, a mahogany neck with rosewood Ergocut fingerboard, 5-way switch as well as separate volume and tone controls. The full bodied, 25 ½” scale Dorchester model features two Lace Alumitone humbuckers, housed in a chambered silver leaf maple body with poplar wings and a rock maple neck with rosewood or maple Ergocut fingerboard. The controls consist of separate volume and tone knobs along with a 4-way switch with a “beefy” 1st position with the neck/bridge in-series, producing more output and a fatter tone. Both models feature a chrome roller bridge with a fixed tailpiece, chrome Kluson tuning machines, Nordic white pickguard and truss rod cover with matching binding on the back.

The Richmond brand brings a new dimension to Godin’s renowned line-up. Robert Godin worked tirelessly with his top electric guitar designer to create these astoundingly beautiful instruments that truly speak for themselves.
