This Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin II HB in Cognac Burst represents the company's excellent standards in guitar-building by showcasing the guitar's natural beauty, complimented by a timeless "burst" of color that visually, brings dimension and warmth. The tone is very concise, with a dry, woody tone, perfect for rythmic plucks and clean octave runs. The lead tone is focused, while chords bring a bit more complexity.
There is a host of other design and specification choices that make this a truly unique instrument from Godin. This includes Canadian Wild Cherry Top, back and sides, a Silver Leaf Maple neck and rosewood fretboard. The 16" radius makes fast runs and legato styles easier, and Custom Godin P90 pickups create a warm, focused tone, with a little extra chime; great for multiple genres.
