Made out of Canadian cherry wood, the body of this 5th Avenue has a curved top and a molded back, an adjustable bridge, standard F-holes, profiled glossy headstock, floating pickguard and cream bindings. The beautifully polished finish looks great and it reminds me of superb 19th century French finishes.

The new Godin Kingpin P90 single-coil pickup produces a classic Vintage sound with strong presence, clarity and character!


I tested the 5th Avenue model without a pickup and I would like to meet somebody who owns the version with pickup to hear how it sounds...
