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.

Godin SDxt with lacewood top. It's in the shop atm, cause I really hate dealing with floating trems

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.

I finally got a Godin Session. Sorry I don't have any pics to post at the moment but I really like it a lot. The tremolo bridge on it was decked strongly from factory set. After getting it to float & lubricating every possible string binding point on the guitar with chapstick, it stays in tune really well even with moderate trem abuse.

I like the single coils & not really sure if I'll be changing them out. But the humbucker I'm not really fond of. I'll eventually switch it with a Duncan Stag Mag or something along those lines like the Halfbreed from Rio Grande or maybe some similar offering from Dimarzio, so that I can take full advantage of the coil tap feature. I'm even considering getting a noiseless single coil for the middle position but haven't really made up my mind yet.

The guitar is quite heavy considering it's basswood body. I'm surprised by it. I expected it to be lighter but I've no problem with the weight. I really like the neck. Mine has the maple neck & maple fingerboard with the vintage burst finish.

Overall really good bang for the buck guitar. Totally recommended.

I came across a bunch of videos when trying to setup the 2 point vint. tremolo on it, that I'd like to share.

The first one is what works for me. The second is just for fun & doesn't work if you are bending notes with your fretting hand.

Welcome to the Godin clan Steven. I am also not much into the Bucker on my Velocity without an OD pedal. To me it sounds a little thin but heck, if I wanted a LP sound, I would of bought one.

My newest set up. I am now channel jumping my DRRI utilizing bothe channels vis a Radial Big Shot A-B-Y box, changed a few tubes out with some JJ 6V6's driving the power, and a couple of Jan Phillips NOS 5751's at the pre amp stages. The stock speaker was replaced with an Eminence Cannabis Rex and moved to another speaker cab.

I am in LOVE!

I'm glad to join the clan. I think I'll end up collecting a bunch of guitars from Godin over the remaining years of my lifetime. My next future purchase when I have the cash will be this one http://www.richmondguitarscanada.com/belmont.html
The one with the black wash finish looks great, the prices are also not really too high.

I'm curious about that Revoicer thing that's in your Velocity model. They seem to be using that feature in some other models as well. I hadn't come across something like that until I started looking into Godin stuff. Is it like a boost that raises the output of the pickup or something?

The humbucker in the session model is okay. I mean its usable, transparent, medium output, but the coil tap sound leaves a lot to be desired. So I'm gonna take it out & switch it with a bucker that consists of two single coils so that I can get a proper single coil sound when split minus the output drop. The Session sounds a lot beefier than a regular strat due to the basswood I think. This Canadian Laurentian basswood is quite something. It's amazing how I never came across this company before. I'm a Godin fan now!
