What We Think

Condition: Used, excellent

I love the sound of this guitar unplugged! It's visually stunning and very comfortable to play! If you're looking for a straight-ahead swing machine that you can lay down your Freddie Green on or a sweet creamy box to bust out those Pat Martino licks, this guitar can handle all the above! Perfect for anyone new to learning jazz or looking to add a little something different to their blues band. Definitely my favorite guitar from Godin yet! 

Manufacturer's Description from Godin

The latest model in the 5th Avenue line-up features a Cutaway body design and the added sounds of two Godin humbucker pickups delivering all that classic, vintage tone with presence, clarity and a little attitude thrown in for good measure!

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! 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.

Godin Guitars

About Manufacturer

Godin guitars are assembled in our Richmond, Quebec and Berlin, New Hampshire factories. The necks and bodies are all made in our original location in La Patrie, Quebec.
 
We are also known for our other brands which include our acoustic guitar lines: Seagull, Simon & Patrick, Norman, LaPatrie and Art & Lutherie. We are also the manufacturer of the revolutionary TRIC case provided unparalleled protection for your guitar.
 
All over the world guitar players are making exciting new music that explores new techniques and defies categorization. All of this new guitar music is complemented by the guitars’ almost limitless capacity for variation in design. Unlike most other instruments, which have followed the same design parameters for decades, the modern guitar continues to evolve. We are constantly reviewing and refining the techniques employed to craft them, the materials used to build them, and the integration of the latest developments in related electronics. 
 
Exploring these possibilities is what Godin is all about. 
 
Our goal with each Godin guitar is to find the perfect balance between the finest traditions of guitar crafting and the new design concepts that we are developing. After 25 years of guitar building, we still hand-finish the necks on every Godin guitar. In fact, from fretting to sanding, there is more handwork in our guitars than you would find in most custom shops. From the selection of the wood to the final adjustments on the finished instrument, each Godin guitar is designed and built by people who love guitars.
