Godin Guitars Launches the Summit Classic A/E

The new model features a pair of Seymour Duncan humbucker pickups and an L.R. Baggs T-Bridge.

Montreal, QC (December 19, 2018) -- Showgoers at 2019 Winter NAMM will be among the first to try Godin Guitars’ latest release: the Summit Classic A/E Havana Burst. The new guitar kicks off Godin’s latest evolution of modern playability and style for what is to be expected from their 2019 electrics. The Summit A/E provides extreme tonal versatility thanks to a pair of Seymour Duncan humbucker pickups and amazingly, an L.R. Baggs T-Bridge which enables the chambered guitar to provide acoustic tones at the switch of a button.

Offered in a new Havana Burst High-Gloss finish and adorned with a single F-hole, the Summit A/E is one of Godin’s standout electrics of 2019. Other features are a chambered mahogany body, swamp ash top, mahogany neck, Richlite fingerboard and a long 25.5” scale length.

Keeping true to Godin’s long-standing philosophy of innovation, the Summit Classic A/E will appeal to players looking for a rocking electric guitar which can also deliver accurate acoustic tones.

Winter NAMM show attendees will have the opportunity to experience the Godin Summit Classic A/E before it hits retail post-NAMM.

$2,625.00 USD street price

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
