Canadian guitar manufacturer prepares for the North American unveiling of its new brand of Richmond Guitars

Montreal, Canada (June 17, 2008) -- With Summer NAMM just days away, Godin Guitars is preparing to exhibit lots of new stuff and introduce their new Richmond brand of guitars. First unveiled at Frankfurt''s Muskimesse in March, the Richmond label consists of the Belmont and Dorchester models. Check out the specs here.
 

Straight from Godin, here''s what you should know about their new line:

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.

Godin also recently secured the North American distribution of high-end Italian made SR Technology acoustic amplifiers. With models such as the JAM 150 Plus, SR Technology has succeeded in becoming a market leader throughout Europe and around the world. The JAM 150 Plus will be available to try out at the Godin booth in Nashville.

Godin will also be showcasing all of its exciting new models, which came out this past year. This includes the increasingly talked about Godin 5th Avenue archtop acoustic and its electric sibling, the 5th Avenue Kingpin with P90 pickup. Both offer vintage looks and feel, but with modern playability. 

Other new additions include the rockin’ Godin Summit CT with High-Definition Revoicer and Seymour Duncan 59 & Alnico 2 humbuckers, the LG HB & LG SP90 now with beautiful figured tops, the 3-voice Multiac Spectrum steel string with Lipstick pickup and the aggressive 24 fret shred-machine known as the Godin Redline1.

For the single-coil lover, the exquisite Passion RG-3 will also be making an appearance, featuring the finest selection of woods and Godin’s new GS-3 Single coil pickups, as well as the High-Definition Revoicer.
