      Godin Velocity Electric Guitar (515823)
Availability:  


Switch between active and passive pickups with the push of a button.

The Godin Velocity electric guitar features a double-horned body, comprised of a silver leaf maple center with poplar wings and a gorgeous natural, solid, high-flamed maple top, unique to each guitar. The Velocity is the first Godin electric guitar to feature the Godin High-Definition Revoicer. The H.D.R. revoices and augments the frequency range of each pickup and allows you to go from passive to active pickups with the simple push of a button. The H.D.R. gives guitarists the best of both worlds. The Velocity's growl is powered by 2 Godin GS-1 single-coil pickups as well as the beefy tone and high output of the SH-5 Duncan Custom humbucker by Seymour Duncan for serious crunch and an aggressive bite.

Godin's Ergocut shaping gives the rock maple neck an extremely comfortable worn-in feel for effortless playability and lightning speed!

Other features include a vintage tremolo bridge, maple or rosewood fingerboard, 5-way switch, and a stunning high-gloss finish.

    As reviewed by George Hummel on 4/15/2012

    I didn?t set out to buy this guitar. I was interested in Godin?s A6 acoustic/electric hybrid. Couldn?t find one anywhere to check out? not at GC nor any of Godin?s other local dealers, so I contacted Godin. Their guy said that that model rarely makes it to the showrooms, just order one from a store with a return policy (such as GC) and that he was sure I would be happy. Spoke to my local GC mgr., he said no problem he?s sold me enough axes to know that I wouldn?t return an instrument that was right. But I still felt weird ordering one having never seen anything that they?ve made (except from the audience at a John McLaughlin concert.) Another nearby GC had a used Velocity in stock, so I figured I could look at something that they made before pulling the trigger on the special order. So here I sit now the owner of a Velocity! (Still lusting for the A6 but we can only justify so many guitars at a time!) And on top of that I?m drooling at their sweet line of arch tops. Could I be turning into a Fanboy? Godin, not to kiss and tell says they were producing parts for ?major US manufacturers? under contract. They were an acoustic guitar maker, also making parts for electric guitars. They decided they should go electric, too. You pick up the instrument and you realize that it?s almost exactly (see below) a Fender neck! Anyone considering a Strat owes it to themselves to check out this guitar. Twin horns, bolt on neck, HSS pick-up with 5 way switch?. A review I read somewhere said ?custom shop quality at a made in Mexico price? and I couldn?t agree more. What a sweet guitar? easy to play with a great range of tones and a beauty to behold. Although Strat-like Godin is not making a carbon copy and brings some delightful innovations to the classic design. (One of Godin?s observations is that they were missing out on the fun of designing electric guitars.)They smooth the edges of the neck to duplicate a neck with 50 years of love and wear. From their experiences as manufacturers of acoustic guitars, the body is chambered. This makes the guitar very light, but more importantly, very resonant. It has a very bright sound unplugged. The HDR circuit, described in the specs, switches the pups between active and passive operation. Active juices up the sound nicely. It?s like a button on the guitar labeled ?more.? An easy way to slip from rhythm to solo. The only negative I can offer is the tiny, understated, off centered dots on the neck took some getting used to. They?re a little hard to spot for an old guy with bi-focals. That?s a pretty minor gripe! But I truly like Godin?s vibe and ethic. Robert Godin started the company in the 70?s and works there today. The bulk of the wood used is from North America and from down trees. They are environmentally conscious. Their instruments have a retro style but with great innovations that make them updated and modern. Their line of synth guitars is also cutting edge. Construction and fit and finish are flawless and when making decisions, features are sometimes Spartan but never cheap. This is a great guitar for (so-called) classic rock, jazz, blues, country?pretty much anywhere you?d want a Strat. Metal-heads would be best served by Godin?s Redline series, which is appointed more to their taste. And Les Paul fans should check out their Icon (single cutaway, glued neck?) I truly don?t understand why Godin doesn?t get the cred they deserve for the quality that they produce. These guitars are as good, or better, than the big boys and at a very fair price. Swim against the stream and check out Godin!

  • I didn't set out to buy this guitar...

    As reviewed by George Hummel on 2/25/2012

    I was looking for an acoustic/electric and was interested in the Godin A6 ("the poorman's Taylor.")Couldn't find one anywhere to check out. Contacted Godin and they responded that they don't usually end up in showrooms, just order one from a place with a return policy-- they were sure I'd be happy. The mgr. at my local GC said he'd gladly order me one-- no problems if I wasn't happy. Having never held a Godin (maybe drooled at John McLaughlin's from the audience) I went to another nearby GC that had a Velocity in stock. I figured I could check out something they made before ordering the A6 totally blind. Next thing I know I own a Velocity! Many may dismiss it as a "Strat copy" but in all honesty it is both better and less expensive. The guitar has all the features you'd expect from the "big name" but Godin brings in their own tweaks. Chambered body, ergonomic neck (they roll the edge a little to duplicate the feel of a 50 year old neck) and the HDR revoicer... WOW! I can't put this guitar down. Light, balanced, easy, fast. Tones from sweet and gentle to rude and crunchy. This entire brand is under apreciated. I am impressed by the facts that: Robert Godin still owns the company (not just a name). They are environmentally concious. The bulk of the wood (except the rosewood)is from North America and from downed trees and, by the way- it is gorgeous. Photos do no justice! Their axes mostly have this retro/funky yet cutting edge tweaked vibe. Still want the A6.... and one of their arch tops...
