Godin Guitars’ first ever line of acoustic guitars was conceived and designed by Simon Godin. The new line comes in three unique models: the Metropolis (dreadnought size), the Fairmount (concert hall size), and the Rialto (parlor body size). Premium tonewoods include Rosewood or Mahogany back and sides, coupled with solid Spruce or Cedar select tops. The Metropolis and Fairmount models are equipped with LR Baggs Anthem electronics and the Rialto is amplified with the Q-Discrete preamp. Unique characteristics to the guitar are a re-imagined body bracing, stunning inlays and a couple of never-before-seen finishes (Satina Gray and Havana Burst).

Also new from Godin is the Summit Classic A/E Havana Burst, which provides extreme tonal versatility thanks to a pair of Seymour Duncan humbucker pickups and an L.R. Baggs T-BRIDGE which enables the chambered guitar to provide acoustic tones at the switch of a button. Other features are a chambered mahogany body, swamp ash top, mahogany neck, Richlite fingerboard and a long 25.5” scale length.

The Godin Multiac Steel was developed to bring authentic acoustic sounds straight to the stage, with zero feedback issues at any volume. The Multiac Steel is based off the design of the Multiac Doyle Dykes Signature and contains many of the same features found on that iconic guitar. The guitar is equipped with a custom voiced LR Baggs Electronic system which offers the possibility of blending an LB6 undersaddle transducer with a Lyric internal microphone. This new model comes with a solid Spruce top on a dual chambered mahogany body, mahogany neck, a Richlite fingerboard, white binding on a Natural finish.
