Godin guitars have released some new models and updated others for NAMM this year. Electric model updates include the thinline, semi-hollow body Godin Montreal Supreme Lightburst Flame HG, featuring figured flame top, bound headstock & bound Richlite fingerboard with large dot inlays, Seymour Duncan custom humbuckers and vintage style trapeze tailpiece. New solid body models include the Godin Session Custom 59, featuring a Seymour Duncan ’59 humbucker in the neck, Godin Custom Cajun single-coil in the bridge, and a 5-way switch for a versatile array of tones. The Godin Progression Plus features a new ergonomic, rounded contoured body, three single-coil pickups including two Godin GS-2 pickups in the neck & middle along with a Seymour Duncan JB Jr. in the bridge. Both models feature the Godin High-Definition Revoicer system, Godin Tru-Loc Trem, and new 5-ply pearloid & tortoise shell pickguards.
Other new solid body electrics will include carved top models such as the rocking Godin Core CT and the stunning Summit Classic CT. Both models feature a 24 3/4” scale, Spanish cedar body and mahogany set neck. The Core CT includes the Graphtech ResoMax wraparound bridge, and available pickups options include two Seymour Duncan P90s (neck: Vintage SP90-1 / bridge: Classic SP90-3), or one Godin GHN1 (neck) & one Seymour Duncan 59’ humbucker (bridge).
