Godin Guitars Launches the Godin Nylon Series

The lineup ranges from the entry-level Etude or Motif, the midrange Concert and Concert CW, to the prestigious Collection and Presentation, all the way to the pro-level Arena models.

Montreal, QC (July 22, 2020) -- Godin Guitars is proud to announce the launch of the Godin Nylon Series as a tribute to the long-standing heritage and quality of the La Patrie brand of nylon-stringed guitars. Rooted in beautiful classical simplicity and tradition, the timeless La Patrie pedigree is now rebranded under the Godin moniker to compliment the already successful line-up of Godin Acoustic steel-string guitars.

The Godin Nylon Series carries on that tradition and quality through unique design and build features, such as high-grade and lightweight tonewoods, select pressure tested solid tops, great feeling mahogany necks, a slight fretboard radius for incredible playing comfort, and top-quality optional electronics for great live performance—making Godin Nylon the ultimate choice for all nylon players.

The new Godin nylon-string line offers unique models with various body types and sizes for all levels of players; ranging from the entry-level Etude or Motif, the midrange Concert and Concert CW, to the prestigious Collection and Presentation, all the way to the pro-level Arena models.

Godin Nylon guitars continue to be made with pride and dedicated craftsmanship in the same factory and town as its aptly named predecessor: La Patrie, Quebec.

Can an entry-level modeler hang with the big dogs?

Excellent interface. Very portable. Nice modulation tones.

Some subpar low-gain dirt sounds. Could be a little more rugged.

The allure of portability and sonic consistency has become too much to ignore for some guitarists, making smaller digital modelers more appealing than ever.

"'If I fall and somehow my career ends on that particular day, then so be it," Joe Bonamassa says of his new hobby, bicycling. "If it's over, it's over. You've got to enjoy your life."

For his stylistically diverse new album, the fiery guitar hero steps back from his gear obsession and focuses on a deep pool of influences and styles.

Twenty years ago, Joe Bonamassa was a struggling musician living in New York City. He survived on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ramen noodles that he procured from the corner bodega at Columbus Avenue and 83rd Street. Like many dreamers waiting for their day in the sun, Joe also played "Win for Life" every week. It was, in his words, "literally my ticket out of this hideous business." While the lottery tickets never brought in the millions, Joe's smokin' guitar playing on a quartet of albums from 2002 to 2006—So, It's Like That, Blues Deluxe, Had to Cry Today, and You & Me—did get the win, transforming Joe into a guitar megastar.
