Ok, has anyone tried the Godin Freeway Classic? I've only heard good things about it, but doesn't seem to be a very popular guitar so I can't find online reviews. I've heard it's good for blues and rock. But will it suit heavier styles? (just curiosity, not that I play heavy metal).

Has anyone played or has a Godin Freeway Classic?

Thanks!

I own one, and it definitely finds its home in rock/blues. It's not really suited towards heavy metal, but only because the pickups tend to muddy up a bit with alot of gain.

The guitar is really bright sounding, so when switching pickups towards metal, you'd have to remember to watch out for ear-piercing treble.

Overall though, the actual build quality of the guitar is superb, and the pickups are perfectly good stock pickups for rock/blues.

i think so. i tried a black HSH godin superstrat which is a freeway, as far as I know. nice guitar. should do metal if you put in pickups aimed at that, and your amp is brootalz-approved.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Godins are tight, but they're made from a maple center with poplar wings, so you get a bright guitar. It's not a perfect choice for chuggy downtuned music, but it'll do the 80s stuff - when metal was synonymous with alder superstrats - perfectly with the right amp.
