What We Want to Know
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.
