Godin Unveils MultiOud and 5th Avenue Jazz

Godin expands their Multiac and 5th Avenue lines for 2011

Montreal, Canada (December 28, 2010) -- Godin Guitars has unveiled two new models to be introduced at NAMM: the MultiOud and the 5th Avenue Jazz.

Godin MultiOud
Based upon the ancient middle-eastern 11-string instrument called the Oud and inspired by the countless musicians struggling with the issues of tuning and amplifying such an instrument comes the Godin MultiOud. This new Godin Multiac series addition will allow Oud players to be amplified in loud and live band settings for the first time and without feedback. It features custom voiced electronics with bridge and microphone options via an onboard preamp with built-in tuner. Godin says that the MultiOud is a breeze to tune and keep in tune, thanks to their specially engineered machine heads.

Godin 5th Avenue Jazz
The ever-popular Godin 5th Avenue series of archtop guitars will see a new addition this year with the 5th Avenue Jazz model. It features similar attributes as other 5th Avenue models with the addition of a smooth sounding jazz Godin mini-humbucker in the neck, ebony fingerboard, and stunning high-gloss custom polished finishes, including Piano Black HG and Natural Flame HG.
