Since 1972, Godin's dedicated team of luthiers have been refining the techniques used in the building of their electric guitars, as well as the materials used to make them. For this reason, Godin has remained a go-to choice amongst many professional players, and throughout this section you'll discover an impressive range of stunning axes that further attest to their brilliance. From flamed maple solid bodies to archtop hollow bodies and semi-hollows, Godin has an electric guitar for every playing style.
Godin's innovative guitar models have earned them praise from many famous artists, including multi-instrumentalist Joel Whitley and even the legendary Leonard Cohen. With that in mind, any one of their models here will exceed your expectations, but if you still can't decide where to start, we'll suggest the 5th Avenue CW Kingpin II Archtop Electric Guitar. Combining the soul of a '50s archtop with modern playability, this cutaway is an affordable yet high-quality axe that contains a pair of Godin Kingpin P90 single-coil pickups. Delivering a vintage tone with plenty of punch and clarity, the 5th Avenue is a versatile beast, and with its Canadian wild cherry body and contoured high-gloss headstock, it's a treat for the eyes as well as the ears.
Another popular Godin electric is the Redline HB. Boasting ferocious humbucker pickups that are housed in a string-through, silver leaf maple body with poplar wings, the Redline HB Electric Guitar has an irresistible sound that's fitting for a wide array of genres. Additionally, it features a fleet rock maple neck with ergo-cut rosewood fingerboard and 24 jumbo frets, so if you like to play fast, you'll have no problem turning heads with this killer beast.
Of course, Godin's selection of electric guitars is so extensive, you really owe it to yourself to explore their entire roster of models. Whether you're a heavy metal shredder or an intricate jazz master, Godin electric guitars are built to satisfy the needs of today's most demanding musicians - and the second you begin playing one, we think you'll agree they succeeded.
