This Godin 5th Ave CW Kingpin II Cutaway is a special version made by our friends in Quebec. It features a Cutaway body design and the focused sound of two Godin Humbucking pickups instead of P-90s.
With the soul of a 1950' archtop, the 5th Avenue is a true vintage spirit of yesterday with today' level of modern playability. With more projection & volume in the low/mids than traditional archtop acoustic guitars, the dynamically rich tone of the 5th Avenue makes this sophisticated instrument a dream to play, but not a nightmare to pay for. The Godin 5th Avenue now makes the affordable North American archtop guitar a reality! From Alt-Country, Delta Blues, Slide, Jazz to Rock, the 5th Avenue can really deliver both acoustically and electrically.
Made from Canadian wild cherry, the body of the 5th Avenue features a molded arched top and back, as well as an adjustable bridge, classic f-holes, contoured high-gloss headstock, floating pickguard and cream binding. Finished in semi-gloss, this special model comes with a TRIC case.

Comments about Godin 5th Ave CW Kingpin II Cutaway:
A bit disappointed in the pick-ups. Tone is good. Stronger treble; would like a bit more warmth. Controls may be limiting the flexibility since there is a single tone and volume with a 3-way pick-up choice toggle. Finish on guitar is very good. Playability with light strings is great. Depth of jazz tone is what I question. Will try with some additional amps .Had I been able to play beforehand might have made a different choice to meet my needs and full expectations. Could be that I just need to play it some more. Don't love it; but won't criticize since I'm new to this style. Right guitar for the right person.
Great value; great case for the money. I'll keep it and adjust to my style. Would recommend that GC add more Godin jazz-style instruments to store availability.
