Godin Montreal

Every so often an instrument appears that seems to tick all the right boxes, and Godin’s Montreal is just that kind of baby. The latest in a series of two-voiced guitars that marries the electric sound from the traditional Godin “humbucker” magnetic pick ups with the acoustic sound from the LR Baggs saddle transducers in the bridge. Its two-chamber body is carved from a solid block of mahogany, as is the top table with its trademark “f” holes. The 24 3/4 scale neck is also fashioned from mahogany and features Godin’s own ergocut technique, while the rosewood fretboard carries 22 medium frets. The extraordinary and extensive sound palette of the Montreal comes not only from the special 5-way switch linked to the two humbucker pick ups that produce five distinct tones of their own, but from the option to add the bridge transducers to the mix using a single patch cord, thereby creating an infinitesimal array of timbre and tone.
