Godin Guitars Releases Montreal Premiere and Empire Black HB

January 21, 2014

Montreal, Canada (January 21, 2014) -- Montreal based Godin Guitars is getting ready for the upcoming New Year with the introduction of a number of exciting and versatile guitars at this year’s Winter NAMM show, from January 23rd to the 26th in Anaheim California.

Godin Montreal Premiere P90, P90 w/Bigsby, TriplePlay and DLX models:
Introduced in 2013, the Montreal Premiere certainly stuck a chord with players looking for something new in the thinline, semi-hollow body electric guitar market. This has further expanded with the addition of four new models to the Montreal Premiere line-up. The Montreal Premiere Sunburst P90 HG features a set of Godin Kingpin P90 pickups and a custom tailpiece. A Bigsby tremolo equipped model is also available, featuring a roller saddle bridge. Players will now also be able to compose, perform and record wirelessly with the Montreal Premiere Sunburst TriplePlay featuring a fully integrated Fishman TriplePlay system in the guitar. Also, with hexaphonic saddle pickups in the bridge, players will have access to the Montreal Premiere as a 3-voice guitar (electric, acoustic & synth). Finally, the “crème de la crème” model in the series is the new Montreal Premiere Lightburst HG DLX featuring a highly figured flame top, back & sides, flame maple set-neck with bound headstock and bound Richlite™ fingerboard with trapezoid inlays. This Deluxe edition also features 2x Custom Seymour Duncan humbucker pickups and the new Graphtech Ratio™ tuned machine heads.

All Montreal Premiere models feature 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. Other features include a 3-way toggle switch along with 1x volume & 1x tone knob, a 24 3/4” scale, mahogany set-neck with rosewood fingerboard (except DLX model), double-bound binding, high-gloss custom polished finish and ResoMax bridge system by Graphtech with stop tailpiece.

Godin Empire Black HB:
From the Godin Richmond series, the new Empire HB is powered by 2x Godin custom humbuckers, delivering simple & serious classic rock punch with a very appealing price tag! It features a single cutaway solid silver leaf body design and includes a black high-gloss finish, a 24 ¾” scale, ultra comfortable mahogany ergocut neck with a worn in feel, rosewood fingerboard, high-ratio tuners, chrome wraparound bridge, 3-way toggle switch, 1 volume & 1 tone.
