    nickerson That is one beautiful guitar. I think they have one of the best finish I'v seen on a guitar. Should sound as good as it looks.
    I think the way it's wrapped is a Godin thing mine came the same way. Don't know why more manufactures don't use that bubble jacket. Hang on to it. I kept mine and later gave it to a friend to ship something fragile to her Mom...It worked great. Or if your one who ships guitars, nice heavy box too.
    ENJOY

    Well, I'm glad you're happy with it! Congrats!

    All this Kingpin talk prompted me to spend some time with mine over the past week. Every time I play that thing it brings a smile to my face!

    Yes you are right it’s a beautiful sounding abs playing guitar. Also the fatter neck is very comfortable

    Sweetwater packs the best in the business.
    By the way - I highly recommend flat wound strings for those.

    Congrats on choosing such a beautiful 5th Avenue, Nick!

    My last purchase sold me on the fact that Sweetwater has the best customer service. Being able to see and choose the exact guitar that you want to ensure that you get a guitar that will excite you visually? That's awesome in my book.

    I can see you sitting my the fireplace on a cool winter's night, playing your 5th Avenue and having a big smile on your face. :D

    Your Godlin is really nice! I like Sweetwater's service as well. Recently though purchased a guitar from Musician's Friend and it was really well packaged with the sealed manufacturer's box inside a very thick larger MF one with thick padding between the two.
    Seems both have stepped up their packaging no doubt due to past damage shipment claims and carrier abuse.

    100% agree and I always seem to have my eye on one. P90 hollow-body warmth and then solid body goodness and quality. To scratch my recently cured Tele itch, I almost pulled the trigger on the one in the link below. Tele goodness but girth in tone with clarity off the neck playing bluesy lead solos. Love the 12" radius but really wanted a wider-at-the-nut option so I passed for a recent purchase to be delivered from an independent builder w/ ETA of the 24th. This is a great guitar:

    I think you should have! These are great guitars. The elongated 'hot dog' is a little strange to some eyes, but looks fine to me. I just think of it as a foot-long. :D
