Since you double posted, I vote this one be the only Godin thread.


2008 xtSA Multivoice Synth Access


Freeway 4 Bass

That's all I have.

I've got a 2002(?) SD. currently, it is in the midst of a complete overhaul; new pain, new frets, new pickups, new pots, new switch, new bridge- pretty well everything. I love the guitar, and it plays really well, so I figured it deserved to be modified and turned into a real beast.

also have a seagull acoustic, they're part of Godin.

I decided to change my strings today and while I was at it, I oiled the fretboard with lemon oil. Glad I did since I got this in a trade and I don't know when, or if it's ever been done. Since this thing is 4 years old, I thought I would be doing some cleaning up on the fretboard, but there was no grunge and after looking closer, there is no fret wear. This guitar hasn't been played much at all, and I traded a Mexican Strat for it.

I wish I were still a Godin owner. I had to sell off my SD last year when I was unemployed.

Very nice!

There's a Kingpin 2 here locally I wish I had the money for.

http://houston.craigslist.org/msg/3071575241.html

I just ordered a Seagull and hope that helps the cause. Should be here in a few days.

It's different from what I'm used to. When I hit certain notes, the whole guitar "Resonates" and the sustain is like nothing I ever played before. Most guitars I have owned/played, are heavy and feel dead and that's something I really never noticed before I got my Godin. It's weird that the resonance, or vibration is almost equal from the body and all the way up the neck.

I have a new amp on the way and I think I will be drooling until I go to my grave.

Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Deluxe Reverb.
