Adam Moore is On Location in Montreal, Canada, for the Godin Tone Tasting 2010 event where he checks out Godin's new line of guitars--the Icon Series. Their are five models within the Icon Series, including the Type 2 Fat Black, Type 2 Classic, Type 2 Convertible, Type 3 Natural, Type 3 Black and Type 3 Burgundy. All the models feature the H.D.R., which revoices and augments the frequency range of each pickup and allows the player to go from passive to active pickups with the simple push of a button. The H.D.R. provides extra bite, dynamic response and redefines the character of each pickup. It's like having 2 sets of pickups in 1 guitar for 5 pure passive tones + 5 pure active tones. The models come either loaded with Jason Lollar P90s, Duncan '59s, Duncan's P-Rails or Godin's GHN1. This is Godin's first set-neck model.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
