    Nice! I’ve always wanted a Godin. Just never seem to see any good deals around here. Are they more plentiful up north?

    Good looking guitar. Hope the string angle is good. Can't see how you would reverse wrap that one. ;)

    MIC(anada)?

    There is presently two at $400 and $450 CAD in the area. A nice gold top and a cherry.

    Godin started building Robert Godin's guitars in 1972 in La Patrie, Quebec. The head office is located in Montreal. The necks and bodies are all made in Quebec, but are assembled in six factories in four locations—three in Quebec and one in New Hampshire.

    This one is for sale near me, but you don’t know much about it. Looks like the picguard covers the whole face of the guitar!

    I have two buddies that play Godin and swear by them. They make really nice guitars!

    My acoustic is a Simon and Patrick, which is one of Godin's brands. Possibly my favourite feature is that it came with a Tusq nut and bridge from the factory. They are standard issue.

    Front car seat porn. Dirty and smutty, but I'll clean her act and she'll sing for me.

    Can't edit the title of this post, so consider this the official NGD (New Godin Day)

    First cleaning, setup pics.

    Fretboard degunked and oiled, frets polished.

    I played them with the old rusty strings that were on it and found them quite hot, maybe a bit too much. I'll see when I start tweaking it.
