We need it.
Anyone know where Godin makes those?
while we are on this topic of a Gretsch that is not a Gretsch, I have a hankering for one of these Prestige DC coupe. Compared to the 6131T-62, this has a wider neck, 1/2 the price and I like the control layout:
I believe all Godins are made in Canada as are these Prestige guitars assembled in Canada
Godin is a Canadian company.
I've had a pretty high opinion of any Godin/Seagull I've handled. As far as I know, all of them are Canadian made, generally of semi-locally sourced woods (w/ some exceptions) & seem to provide a really nice value beyond their price point.
Still, it looks so much like a Gretsch . I like all guitars but their is nothing like a Gretsch.
That's a nice looking guitar, I like it.
That's the best looking Gretsch 5120 copy I've seen.
TV Jones Classic pups puts it well above the competition and Godin make excellent guitars imo.
Godin are Canadian made.
I've had an excellent Godin Seagull acoustic for 20 years
Anyone know how much $$ this is ?
I had a bit of a double take when I finally looked at the MAP on the web page of $2295, seems higher than I would have expected from them based on previous models. Maybe that's Canadian dollars though?
yeah Sid - they won't sell many at that price.
Can buy any blue 5120 and stick TVJ Classics in it for $1000
I would expect a new 6120 should be attainable fairly easily for that MAP most places in the US anyway.
I'm not necessarily meaning to say the Godin is any less deserving of the price, but yeah they don't really have the general brand recognition to do well w/ a $2K+ street price to me even w/ TVJs in it.
If they are made in Canada then that price makes sense.
(Why is there no switch tip screwed on?)
Cool... and if you drop it or ding it... it apologizes to YOU.
Good catch. They're not made in Canada?a
They're made in Canada and the price is in Canadian dollars, which is about $2,100 USD. I was looking at a 5th Avenue archtop acoustic (along with a weird Japanese teardrop guitar) before deciding on my Gretsch. I have an Etude classical and it's a beautiful guitar. I still had the acoustic in my camera roll:
I had one of the dark stained 5th Ave. Kingpins w/the P90. It was a very well made, fine guitar for little money. Another one of those I wish I hadn't let go now.
Have thought about getting another one, but I'm saving up for a Tennesee Rose at the moment.
Keep hitting setbacks though and it's gonna take me longer than I hoped. Some serious back issues as of late. Trying to avoid surgery,
but those big steroidal nerve injections ain't cheap and it's been one med bill after another lately. Yuck
These Godin Montreal models are really nice guitars - beautifully made and the play and sound fantastic. Even the Bigsbys are smooth. I nearly purchased a Montreal about two years ago. It had Duncan P90s and wow!
However, when I played it I found a problem. The Montreals were designed with a trapeze tailpiece and the Bigsby was an evolution. However, being an old-time Strat player I use the volume control a lot and on the Montreal, you have to reach over and behind the little hump on the Bigsby where the tension bar goes through the frame.
It was uncomfortable for me and I passed on the sale. The need to move the volume control forward so it is not buried under the Bigsby handle.
But they are great guitars!
