Montreal based Godin Guitars is getting ready for the upcoming year with the introduction of a number of exciting and versatile guitars at this year’s Winter NAMM show, from January 23rd to the 26th in Anaheim California.
Introduced in 2013, the Montreal Premiere certainly stuck a chord with players looking for something new in the thinline, semi-hollow body electric guitar market. This has further expanded with the addition of four new models to the Montreal Premiere line-up. The Montreal Premiere Sunburst P90 HG features a set of Godin Kingpin P90 pickups and a custom tailpiece. A Bigsby tremolo equipped model is also available, featuring a roller saddle bridge. Players will now also be able to compose, perform and record wirelessly with the Montreal Premiere Sunburst TriplePlay featuring a fully integrated Fishman TriplePlay system in the guitar. Also, with hexaphonic saddle pickups in the bridge, players will have access to the Montreal Premiere as a 3-voice guitar (electric, acoustic & synth). Finally, the “crème de la crème” model in the series is the new Montreal Premiere Lightburst HG DLX featuring a highly figured flame top, back & sides, flame maple set-neck with bound headstock and bound Richlite fingerboard with trapezoid inlays. This Deluxe edition also features 2x Custom Seymour Duncan humbucker pickups and the new Graphtech Ratio tuned machine heads.
All Montreal Premiere models feature an innovative spruce “breathe-through” carved core. This unique feature promotes free airflow through the interior center block, in turn, making the Montreal Premiere a supremely resonant and vibrant guitar. Other features include a 3-way toggle switch along with 1x volume & 1x tone knob, a 24 3/4″ scale, mahogany set-neck with rosewood fingerboard (except DLX model), double-bound binding, high-gloss custom polished finish and ResoMax bridge system by Graphtech with stop tailpiece.
Godin MultiUke Koa HG:
The Canadian made, tenor size, electro-acoustic Ukulele, introduced last year, now finds itself with the additional option of a stunning Koa wood top. The MultiUke Koa HG features a chambered mahogany body design, mahogany neck with double function truss rod, rosewood fingerboard & bridge, custom voiced electronics and onboard preamp with 3-band EQ.
Godin Empire Black HB:
From the Godin Richmond series, the new Empire HB is powered by 2x Godin custom humbuckers, delivering simple & serious classic rock punch with a very appealing price tag! It features a single cutaway solid silver leaf body design and includes a black high-gloss finish, a 24 3/4″ scale, ultra comfortable mahogany ergocut neck with a worn in feel, rosewood fingerboard, high-ratio tuners, chrome wraparound bridge, 3-way toggle switch, 1 volume & 1 tone.
