The Godin 5th Avenue brings you back to a time when the archtop acoustic guitar reigned supreme. 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. The new Godin Kingpin P90 single-coil pickup delivers all that classic, vintage tone with presence, clarity and a little attitude thrown in for good measure!
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.
I purchased this mainly as a Jazz Box and could not be more pleased. It has a nice punchy tone acoustically, but by rolling back the tone and adjusting your amp it does the ES125 tone perfectly when played as an electric.The fit and finish work on the Godin is FAR superior to the last 3 Gibsons I've purchased over the past 10 years. Setup was perfect for me and the fit an finish work is flawless.I could not be happier with my Musician's Buy experience. The level of customer service is something I have not seen in a long, long time. Chad was kind enough to send me pics of the actual guitar I would be getting before the purchase, answered all of my questions and thoroughly checked out the guitar before shipping.I even received a call a few days after it was shipped to make sure I got it and was completely pleased. Who else does that anymore? Answer: No one!The guitar was exactly what I wanted and Musician's Buy has a new customer for life. Thanks, guys!
