    Comments about Godin 5th Avenue Uptown GT Guitar with Bigsby:

    This guitar looks and sounds gorgeous. Has a slight western twang among the bluesy clear tones (at least the way I play it). I have some minor issues with fret buzz because I play down-tuned, which I am sure could be fixed in someway. I raised the bridge and it got rid of most of it. I changed the strings to D'Addario Phosphor Bronze Acoustic strings to give it more punch acoustically and it's a near perfect guitar for me and my sound now. Like literately the natural tone meshes very well with the tone of my voice.

    Through my set up (Fender Twin and a smaller Vox, EQ'd mostly flat and warm) the high pitched strings came out a little bright so I adjusted the pickups away from them to balance the sound with the lower strings. If I'm being really nitpicky I might complain about the position of the Bigsby. I would wish it could be higher towards where I strum but it's kind of a big guitar so I'm sure the logistics of moving it would be very hard to achieve. Plus I've gotten used to it.

    I've owned this guitar for about 2 months and already it's become irreplaceable to me. It's incredibly versatile and has many applications.
