should be good! I have 3 Godin guitars, they are well made with quality parts. will not disappoint
If I was shopping for a Jr style guitar, that would be my first choice. I'm no expert on P90s, so I can't speak for the "authenticity" of the Kingpin P90 pickup, but they sound good to me. As stated above, the quality is excellent. And it's made in the colonies!
I like that. I have a Fifth Avenue that came with a Kingpin in the neck and the pickup sounded great. I replaced it with a Fralin hum-cancelling P90 only because I wanted hum cancelling.
I’d bet it’s awesome. I’ve had a few Godins over the years, every one a really nice guitar and excellent value.
I have not played that one, but have been quite curious. You may want to play if possible, some players can't seem to jive with the Godin neck. When I owned an Icon II, I quite enjoyed it. I do own a Metropolis QIT acoustic guitar and everything about it is just perfect.
It's a classic style that won't quit - congrats
Looks like fun!
I have three Godin made guitars. They are all excellent, and they are all acoustics. Never been lucky enough to catch up with one of their solid bodies...I saw one of their strat looking things walk out as I walked in. I did get the chance to play a Shechter Telecaster...it was interesting...really didn't play like the Teles I have played. Very interesting guitar indeed.
It's used on UK eBay, so lockdown mailorder only. Does look the business, so if the price is right I might just take a punt.
Not bought yet- finger on trigger..
Godin makes good stuff! Tried one of those but I “snoozed and loozed”.
Also bidding on this 60's/70's oddity- should be OK, John Hall probably doesn't know any UK hitmen.
Nice! I'll be playing this Metropolis until the day I'm done!
I had GAS for one of Godin's Fifth Avenue range a couple of years ago but the couple I played were very disappointing. They both felt very "stiff" to play and the P90's were pretty uninspiring compared to others I've played/owned over the years. Could have just been bad examples, they were the same day/same shop and the Junior could be totally different but I think I'd want to know if I could return if I wasn't happy.
For that money you're not that far away from a used Gibson?
You're right.. but I've never been convinced on budget Gibson build quality. They're nothing like Squiers, that's for sure!
I’ve never played a bad product from Godwin. And that looks like a great design, but I love simple P90 instruments.
That's a really nice looking guitar is that a set mahogany neck?
