Godin Shipping Summit CT

Unveiled at Winter NAMM, the Godin Summit CT is now available.

Montreal, Canada (May 26, 2008) -- Released at this past Winter NAMM show in Anaheim and shown in Frankfurt at Musikmesse, the new Godin Summit CT with H.D.R. is a heavy hitter with tons of undeniable tone.

The Summit CT features an eye-catching, highly figured solid maple carved top (CT) and an extremely resonant solid mahogany string through body. The worn in feel of the Ergocut shaping technique used on its ebony fingerboard facilitates the incredible ease of play of its ultra comfortable mahogany neck. This 24 3/4” scale behemoth is powered by two Seymour Duncan humbuckers. An Alnico 2 in the neck position and a ’59 in the bridge controlled via a 5-way switch, provide huge amounts of tone for many styles of players, most notably the classic, hard-rockin’ variety.

The Summit CT is also another one of the Godin models to feature the innovative High-Definition Revoicer system. The H.D.R. revoices and augments the frequency range of each pickup, redefining their character while allowing the player to go from passive to active pickups with the simple push of a button. The H.D.R. gives guitarists the best of both worlds and provides extra bite and dynamic response.

Some of the finishing touches found on the Summit CT include cream binding, a pearloid inlay at the twelfth fret and three beautiful finishes which include a Natural Flame, Trans Black Flame and Sunburst Flame.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
