The Godin 5th Avenue Wins Over a Vintage Purist

We are excited to offer the new Godin 5th Avenue guitar. The 5th Avenue is an archtop guitar, made of Godin's signature 3 layer Wild Cherry laminate. Like all of Godin's guitars, the 5th avenue is made in Canada.

The sound was enough to impress Josh, a famously tweaky vintage guitar purist. He is considering selling his '56 Gibson ES125 and using this guitar.

From Godin:
The Godin 5th Avenue brings you back to a time when the archtop acoustic guitar reigned supreme. With the soul of a 1950’s 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!
How affordable, you ask? The 5th Avenue retails for $625, and we are selling it for just $515 including a gig bag.

We can also announce that towards the end of this year, Godin will be releasing a version of the 5th Avenue with a single P90.

...but you don't have to wait until then. We are offering a Godin 5th Avenue with a single Lollar hand-wound P-90 by Jason Lollar.
We can offer these guitars for $795 with a gig bag. These guitars are available for custom order right now!

Call us or email us for more details!

Where do you place the P90 pickup? Would it be noticable? Or is it in side the guitar some how?
