Godin Guitars Launches the Montreal Premiere HT Laguna Blue

The new model features a hardtail bridge, mahogany neck, and a Seymour Duncan neck pickup.

Montreal, QC (February 24, 2021) -- Godin Guitars is proud to announce the launch of the Montreal Premiere HT Laguna Blue as part of its high-quality electric lineup—a vibrant and versatile guitar for jazz, blues and rock players alike!

This guitar has an innovative and unique breathe-through carved cedar core to enable the body to resonate like no other guitar in its class. Moreover, what makes this model really unique is our newly-developed acoustic-inspired finish, which lends itself perfectly to this semi-hollow body design. Because the finish is thinner and more organic in nature—like you would find on a good acoustic guitar—it breathes more freely and offers even more sonic properties to the Montreal Premiere HT.


While it is perfectly complemented by a classic hardtail bridge, this Montreal Premiere model really stands out with its distinctive Laguna Blue finish! In addition, the 'HT' designation pertains to the classic hard-tail bridge design, which is Graph Tech ResoMax.

It also has a Mahogany neck, which is complemented with a Rosewood fretboard for added roundness and warmth to the overall tone. The scale is 24.75" for easy bends and plenty of midrange, while the Canadian Wild Cherry semi-hollow body provides overall tonal balance with great sustain and clarity.

Speaking of great tone pairings, the Montreal Premiere HT Laguna Blue comes equipped with a Seymour Duncan Jazz SH-2n in the neck position and a Godin Custom Humbucker at the bridge.

Godin's long-standing reputation of quality and vision is put on display with this new model—built entirely in Canada.

Playing in the pocket is the most important thing in music. Just think about how we talk about great music: It's "grooving" or "swinging" or "rocking." Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
