(Originally written by Stratman junior/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Made in Canada.
22 frets, rosewood fingerboard with pearl inlay on the 21st (brand logo comparable to the PRS Bird).
2 pickups with signed chrome housings chosen by Mr Seymour Duncan himself according to the Godin website.
Nice mahogany top with a Les Paul bridge set really low. The guitar has a string through-body system. Good-quality machine heads.
The neck is made out of several first-class maple woods without paint. It is a mix between vintage and modern. As times goes by the wood seems to get better and build up character. The previous owner bought it secondhand in 2007.
One volume and one tone knob.
This LG model (without an X) has neither piezo pickup nor Midi output but that doesn't mean that the Signature Series' baby doesn't sound as good as her bigger sisters, the LGXSA and LGXT.
I find the neck is perfect with a 10 - 46 string set. When I got it had a 12 - 52 string set.
It's a bit like a Gibson Les Paul in the sense that you have to get to know it before really enjoying it.
Access to the upper frets is much more difficult than with a PRS so you need to have a certain musicianship level to do it.
But it's magic when you feel this old wood under your fingers while you make a bend on the 22nd fret. WOW!!!!! This sensation takes me away to a parallel world full of incense and Indian spirituality. I hadn't felt this with any other guitar brand.
I enjoy to play sitting directly on the carpet of my room like John Mclaughing.
Its very fat sustain can surely compete with PRS guitars.
I play everything (blues, metal, rock, arpeggios, finger picking, funk, etc.) with this guitar, except for things that require a tremolo bar.
The guitar sounds very deep.
I play with a Mesa Boogie Express 5:50 (unique red crocodile finish).
The bridge pickup is great with a slight crunch. The neck pickup does its job pretty good and it sounds perfect.
The guitar provides five different high-quality sounds.
It's is a bit heavy. But it's worth its weight in gold.
I bought it secondhand to Stratman via Audiofanzine for a very good price. It was in perfect condition. It was a great deal.
I've owned it for one week and it spent three days at a guitar technician's shop so he could adjust the neck. I adjusted the height of the neck pickup and it now sounds perfect.
I've always been a Godin fan since they launched their nylon string guitars. There are well renowned guitarists that play Godin and endorse this Canadian brand, such as John Mclaughing. The manufacturer has a great knowhow and produce high-quality instruments.
My model doesn't have the Midi option like its bigger sisters (LGXSA and LGXT) nor the same fingerboard finish but it has had enough time to age while retaining its qualities, and I find it sounds amazingly good (I will soon add pictures to my Audiofanzine profile).
I can't wait to test the Godin Montreal model... and I thank you for taking the time to read this.
All the best to you.

Stratman junior's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
22 frets, rosewood fingerboard and pearl on the 21th (signature of the house, a bird similar to home Prs)
2 pickups with covers Chrom sign and chosen by Mr. Seymour Duncan in person depending on the site Godin.
A bridge like the one Paul rgl but much lower, the strings out of the beautiful mahogany table Transblack. mcanique of good quality (felt at first contact in the tuning)
The handle consists of several wooden Saddle of first choice not repainted, and shuffled the roots modernisme.Trs pretty with a wooden look to age well and take a lot of characters with temps.Mon prdcesseur had been used in 2007.
1 volume and 1 knob Potar Tone srrer less than prcdant.
No piezo or midi output for the LG without X, but that's not why the little sister of Signature The series does not sound like a "Great" compares his groin, which are the LGXSA and LGXT.
To handle all the dpend drawing, rgl on the 10.46. It's perfect because I got on the 12.56.
It's like a Gibson Les Paul, you just know them and they open the doors of happiness.
The hen I made rgler, the luthier told me that c'tait rglage handle a Gibson type.
For a history of gout or easy games, Access in acute is far less simple than a PRS, and more musclce Relva who have a certain level of play
But the feel of old wood under your fingers bend the 22nd for a cargo or elsewhere to get what in more than one bewitched. WOW !!!!! This carnal sensation with this handle transports me into another world flooded incense and Indian Spirituality. A charm that I found on any other brand of guitar and it reminds me that I like the cot roots for any old wooden guitar.
Since I love playing with sitting on the floor on the carpet in my piola John Mclaughing.
They have the big trs "sustain" enough to compete against PRS proudly.
I play everything (blues, mtal, rock, arpge, picking, funk etc ...) with the exception that I have no vibrato but that was part of my choice of departure.
Trs it sounds serious, it is one of his characters.
5:50 a Express Branch Watt (Red crocodile in one edition) Mesa Boogie that I do little more than complain about the quality of sound and stuff.
The bridge pickup is trrible with its slight crunch. The neck pickup do its job properly despite a lack of treble (must be because it is still rgler DCAL). Since I rgl is perfect.
There are 5 sounds trs trs good qualities in the two separate microphones.
The weight that pulls a little on the shoulder. it is well worth its weight in gold.
Stratman bought through Audiofanzine 500 euros in a state irrprochable, "the price I do not even quibble for mdiator" knowing that the street price is 1450. An opportunity like once I go back sour.
I hair cell from one week, she spent 3 days in the maker, the time of rglage handle and rest of wood. Still can be a pti rglage screwdriver to the neck pickup and it'll be the best of the best (which does make since and it is finally perfect the treble level).
Only regret the ignorance of people who stop the guitar since 1974 and who swear by the words as tlcaster, vox and guitar company and bought draisonnable.Le kind of price people who laugh when you declare it to have bought a godin 500euros and more they laugh, wondering "what's that Godin?" What a bunch of big c # @ s!
In any case, Godin has always fascinated me since the release of their guitars nylons trs respects to those who know. Today trs big name in landscape guitar telque John Mclaughing REPRESENTATIVES this Canadian firm to the general knowledge in terms of quality and Luthra imprssionnante which nevertheless remains mconnu the public.
It has no options for MIDI and synthtiseur out of his other sisters (and LGXSA LGXT) or the same finish on the buttons in the sleeves SERIES Signature, but good for the price and I got it She took the time to ripen and retain all the qualities that make her the "Big" which sounds awfully good as I expected. (soon the photos on my profile)
For my part I hate to try the brand MODEL Montreal ... and I thank you for reading its few lines.
