I don't have the Empire, but I DO have one of its discontinued brethren- a Belmont. Along with the Dorchester, they were all part of the short-lived Richmond subsidiary brand. The concept was simple: high quality, straightforward inexpensive guitars, made in their Richmond plant. And they basically succeeded.

They just didn't sell well. Only the Empire is still in production.

The necks are Godin's "ergocut" design. They're in the slender side of middle thickness, something like a C or U profile, and the one on my Belmont has a satin finish. VERY nice to play. Rock solid tuning stability. I would definitely buy another Belmont.
