Doesn’t Godin just make elec­troa­cous­tics like the Mul­tiac? Clearly not. Those in­no­va­tive Mul­ti­acs are clas­sic Godin, but in re­cent years the Cana­dian mega-brand has been in­tro­duc­ing a sub­stan­tial num­ber of solid­body electrics that kick off, price wise, with these Sum­mit Clas­sic SGs.

But they’re not very in­no­va­tive… They might shout Gib­son Les Paul Ju­nior and Spe­cial, but Godin’s take on those clas­sics is far re­moved from Kala­ma­zoo in the mid-50s.

What’s dif­fer­ent? Put sim­ply, it’s a dis­tinctly Godin-style recipe us­ing Cana­dian bass­wood bod­ies, maple necks, Graph Tech’s Re­soMax Sonic 1 wrapover bridge and the com­pany’s own-de­sign pick­ups. And, of course, the gui­tars are made in Canada, not Asia, and also come with a very pro-spec gig­bag.
