Classic looks. Modern electronics. Excellent tone and price.

The Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin is a hollowbody electric guitar that brings you back to a time when the archtop acoustic guitar reigned supreme. With the soul of a 1950s archtop, the 5th Avenue guitar has the true vintage spirit of yesteryear with today's level of modern playability. With more projection and volume in the low and mid tones than traditional archtop acoustic guitars, the dynamically rich tone of the 5th Avenue guitar this sophisticated guitar a dream to play, but not a nightmare to pay for. From alt-country to Delta blues, slide and jazz to rock, the 5th Avenue is a guitar that can really deliver both acoustically and electrically. The Godin Kingpin P-90 single-coil pickup delivers all that classic, vintage tone with presence, clarity, and a little attitude thrown in for good measure.

Made from Canadian wild cherry, the body of Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin Guitar features a molded arched top and back. Also features an adjustable GraphTech Tusq bridge, classic f-holes, contoured high-gloss headstock, floating pickguard and cream binding. The rustic beauty of its custom polished finish creates a gorgeous satin sheen reminiscent of 19th century French polish.

Comments about Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin Archtop Hollowbody Electric Guitar With P-90 Pickup:

I love this guitar. Godin makes a nice range of guitars, all made in North America. This one has a great feel and sound to it. A great way to add an archtop to your collection at a decent price, and it sounds much better than many older archtops ever did. The P90 pickup is a great addition. Very highly recommended!

Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin Archtop Hollowbody Electric Guitar With P-90 Pickup

Comments about Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin Archtop Hollowbody Electric Guitar With P-90 Pickup:

A beautiful guitar, I purchased the Cognac Burst. It is a bit darker than the picture. The only difference acoustically from the Fifth Avenue is that it requires electric guitar strings instead of the acoustic strings. I prefer 10's on this making it easy for leads, doublets, and triplets. The sound is still great acoustically with well balanced warm tones and excels for Jazz using the single coil pickup with the warm tones and well balanced response on string volume. It would have been nice if there were cut a ways to reach higher frets, but they were trying to create the early jazz guitars. It is well made, sounds great, easy to play with the 10's and a great addition to my collection.
