The LERXST Limelight electric guitar from Godin Guitars captures the spirit of Alex Lifeson's original Hentor Sportscaster in a thoroughly modern form. Drawing inspiration from the guitar that powered Rush's Moving Pictures album, the LERXST Limelight fuses vintage character with contemporary refinements. Made in Canada, like the legendary prog-rocker himself, this premium instrument, featuring a Floyd Rose bridge, empowers you to explore new sounds, just as the Hentor Sportscaster unlocked fresh creative avenues for Lifeson decades ago.

Godin LERXST Limelight With Floyd Rose Electric Guitar Swamp Ash Body

Lightweight Swamp Ash Body

The LERXST Limelight features a swamp ash body, prized for its balanced resonance across the tonal spectrum. The wood's low density makes this guitar pleasingly lightweight while still transferring string vibration into singing sustain. On stage or in the studio, the swamp ash body provides the ideal tonal foundation.

Smooth Playability With an Ebony Fingerboard

An ebony fingerboard brings out the best in the LERXST Limelight's feel and tone. Ebony's hardness yields excellent note articulation while its dark color enhances the treble response. Combined with the guitar's 22 medium stainless steel frets, the ebony fingerboard enables effortless, precise fingering and bends. The neck profile and 12" radius feel familiar to any electric guitarist.

A humbucker in the bridge position provides thick, singing leads, while two single-coil pickups in the middle and neck positions offer crisp, articulate tones perfect for chords and intricate passages. The three-way toggle switch lets you instantly access the full range of tones.
