5th Avenue CW Kingpin II The latest model in the 5th Avenue line-up features a Cutaway body design and the added sounds of two Godin Kingpin P90 single-coil pickups delivering all that classic, vintage tone with presence, clarity and a little attitude thrown in for good measure!
With the soul of a 1950s archtop, the 5th Avenue is a true vintage spirit of yesterday with today's level of modern playability. With more projection & volume in the low/mids than traditional archtop acoustic guitars, the dynamically rich tone of the 5th Avenue makes this sophisticated instrument a dream to play, but not a nightmare to pay for. The Godin 5th Avenue now makes the affordable North American archtop guitar a reality! From Alt-Country, Delta Blues, Slide, Jazz to Rock, the 5th Avenue can really deliver both acoustically and electrically.
Made from Canadian Wild Cherry, the body of the 5th Avenue features a molded arched top and back, as well as an adjustable bridge, classic f-holes, contoured high-gloss headstock, floating pickguard and cream binding. Also, the rustic beauty of its Custom Polished Finish creates a gorgeous satin sheen reminiscent of the French polish of the 19th century.

If you want a hollow body electric with a single coil pickup, the Godin Kingpin is really the best choice. Sounds great, looks great, very playable and the case is sweet. Getting it with free shipping makes it even better.

Ease of Use:
I love the vintage rockabilly vibe of this guitar, it looks just beautiful. Fortunately it also sounds as good as it looks! It s so playable, as this is coming from someone who primarily plays acoustic. After I strung it I had a fellow musician come over to check my work, he was so excited to play it, too. I knew I had gotten the right guitar when I saw his reaction. You will not be sorry with this guitar!
