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.
