In my decade of playing guitars, my favorites used to be Rickenbacker (way back in the 80’s), Fender (Telecaster Thinline) and Gretsch (just about anything they make).
Three months back I purchased a Godin Kingpin Archtop with single P90 pickup mainly to try to add a bit of acoustic guitar sound to my Gretsch and Fender sound. I’ve been blown away since, so much so – that I’m selling 4 guitars and will purchase a Godin T Armond guitar (pictured above).
The materials used and fit and finish are as good or better than anything I’ve ever seen, and their value is off the charts.
The way these guitars play (most comfortable for my hands) and how light they are and how great they sound – plus that they are made by wizards in Montreal, and no kidding, I’m addicted. Heck, I’d love to go visit their factory – along with visiting Montreal and Quebec City – two gorgeous cities with very interesting history.
I will have one of these beauties in a couple of weeks, and can’t wait.
