Re: Godin history

As an owner of a Simon & Patrick cedar I would definitely recommend trying out the various Godin products.

Re: Godin history

My old Norman ST40 was a real beauty of an all solid wood guitar (gave it to daughter-in-law), and alongside my LaPatrie classical they are both part of the Godin group of companies. The whole family of Godin products are consistently great quality, rivaled in Canada by perhaps only Larrivee out of Vancouver.

This particular electric model first got me interested in the whole coil-splitting technology, and having played it a few times at a local music store, it is definitely on my G.A.S. list:

Re: Godin history

I have an A&L that I love. Even tho it's the entry level line it is built better than most other entry level guitars. I really like the fact that they try to keep the company small. Mass production gets us cheap prices but not the best quality. Godin balances the two quite well. I'm always on the lookout for a Seagull S6. Awesome guitars. Can't justify it, but one of these days I'll pull the trigger.

If Guitarpix was around he could tell ya more.

Re: Godin history

Another Godin fan here. Have never tried a Seagull, though...
Cheers, Z!

Re: Godin history

You should try one.  The cedar tops are nice.  The strings are a bit wide for my preference, but still very nice guitars and would be really great if I were to get more into flatpicking whole songs.

Re: Godin history

I'm a big fan of Godin instruments. I've owned more of them than any other brand. None have been duds, most were excellent, and a few exceptional. I own two now.

Re: Godin history

Truthfully, I never heard of Godin guitars until 2009. When I saw Leonard Cohen playing one on a PBS special. Sorry, I must have led a sheltered life.

Re: Godin history

I hadn't hear of Godin either until somehow I found my A&L on ebay. I remember Guitarpix talking so highly of them so I thought I couldn't go wrong. The small price tag helped too.
