I bought a solid body Godin Richmond back in 2011. It was a really great guitar. Finish was literally perfect as well as the setup out of the box. My only experience with the brand. But it was all positive here and wouldn’t hesitate buying a Godin. Being from Louisiana, you might be supporting some distant family up North too!
The necks are very good. Medium to thin in feel. Very smooth and comfortable. One of the biggest assets of the guitar honestly.
Godin guitars are excellent. I have owned a cutaway 2-P90 5th Avenue and a Montreal Premier. They were both well-constructed and finished perfectly. I didn't really like the very flat fretboard on the 5th Avenue. To me it felt like about a 20" radius. The Montreal Premier was just a brilliant guitar and I regret selling it.
Let me also suggest you look at a Peerless Wizard Standard. Here is a link below. I bought mine from GuitarsNJazz in New Jersey new for $950 incl shipping. (I called them rather than buy thru Reverb.) I know you can get a 5420 Gretsch for less, but this Peerless is really extremely nice and I love the 3 P-90s which remind me of an old school Gibson ES-5.
BTW, congrats on your recent marriage. Joan and I wish you both much happiness!
Marriage... what? I think I missed a thread. A big congrats to you both and in this next chapter together.
thank you both we appreciate your well wishes
Thanks for the heads up these are beautiful guitars
My only Godin experience is with a nylon string Multiac, but based on that I would have to say that the quality and playability are as nice as you are going to find.
I don't know about the hollow bodies being discussed but the solid wood Spruce-Hog mini-jumbo Simon & Patric (Godin) acoustic I have is one hell of a great playing guitar. And, at $599 new (and great deals on used models), it's hard to beat this one for sound, playability and value.
Nick, Godin guitars are solid quality, made of great woods and solid parts. Highly recommended.

Godin are a very good value for $$ Canadian maker imo.
I've had this Godin Seagull acoustic for 20 yrs
As Tony mentioned I found them medium to thin, very comfortable.
Godins are great guitars, across all of their lines (Godin, Seagull, Simon & Patrick, etc.).
Made here in North America too (mostly in Canada with one facility in New England somewhere).
Back in 06 or 07 I bought a Godin Montreal a semi hollow a beautiful guitar but I couldn't stand the bridge p/u a Duncan custom custom custom. It had to go. I went to replace the bridge p/u until I saw what was involved.
Nice guitars. And quality too. And sometimes you find them cheap as a squire.
