Godin Guitars Launches the Stadium '59

The guitar features a Seymour Duncan ’59 humbucker in the neck position and Godin Custom Cajun single-coil pickup at the bridge.

Montreal, QC (January 26, 2018) -- Showgoers at 2018 Winter NAMM will be among the first to try Godin Guitars’ latest release: the Stadium ’59 Series. The new series kicks off Godin’s latest evolution of modern playability and style for what is to be expected from their 2018 electrics. The Stadium ’59 provides tonal versatility thanks to the Seymour Duncan ’59 humbucker in the neck position and Godin Custom Cajun single-coil pickup at the bridge.

Offered in a variety of finishes including a never-before-seen glossy Desert Green colour and paired with a vintage ashtray bridge, the Stadium ’59 is one of Godin’s standout electrics of 2018. The Stadium ’59 series will also be available in Vintage Burst and Coral Blue finishes. Other features are the Indian Rosewood or Maple fingerboards, Hard Rock Maple neck with unique dark shadow finish and a Canadian Laurentian Basswood body. Each Godin features the game-changing Godin High Definition Revoicer.

Winter NAMM show attendees will have the opportunity to experience the full lineup of the new Stadium ’59 models before they hit retail post-NAMM.

The Stadium ‘59 lines will feature the following models:

  • Stadium ’59 Desert Green MN or RN ($1050.00 USD street price)
