MGR/Godin convert's review"Godin Exit-22 Natural"

Godin Exit 22
$460 Cdn. at Long & McQuade and they threw in a patch cord / strap. A really great bunch of people who are knowledgeable!

Single / Single / Humbucker. Good set up so you can do a variety of songs. Sounds awesome! Also, came with a functional Gig Bag! Came close to buying the Epiphone Les Paul Standard but played the two against each other. Guess which one I bought. :o)

Does not come with a Tremolo / Whammy bar. Not necessary if you have an effects unit / setup but you might miss the "Bar" if you're used to one.

Built like a tank and really well balanced. Fender "Strat" like headstock looks well with the Natural solid mahogany body. Mine has a rosewood fretboard over a maple neck which really compliments the body. You can purchase an all maple neck/fretboard version. 2 simple knurled knobs for volume and tone with 5 postion slide switch making adjustments easy.

Would definitely buy another Exit-22 unit to replace if lost or stolen. Of course, I'd have to "curse / hex" the person who tries to steal my guitar. This is one to keep for life!

MGR/slipmatt's review"Godin Exit 22"

Godin Exit 22
I played about 5 years ago and decided to take up guitar again. I headed to my local Long & Mcquade to check out guitars again for the first time in years. Immediately this was the particular model that caught my eye amongst the walls of guitars for its crazy good looks and a decent price point. It was $459.99 cdn but I got it price matched for $439.99.


To start with the looks: Its a beautiful looking guitar. Exit 22's have a solid mahogany body that is unpainted, showing its natural beatiful woodgrain that is semi-glossed to perfection. The fretboard is available in maple or rosewood (mine is rosewood) and the neck is maple. The three wood colors together is stunning and brilliant. It also has two texured chrome volume and tone knobs. The fixed bridge is also chrome as well. The tunners are a great satin silver color.

After loving the looks, I choose this guitar for its versatility. I want to learn a whole bunch of styles when re-learning, not just the music I listen to now (blink 182, Staind, Three Days Grace, Nickleback, Billy Talent, Sum 41 ect...) and this guitar can definately take care of it. It has a hum/single/single set up which i have been told is great all around. Adding to its versatility the exit 22 has a short neck and 22 frets giving it a great feel and fun to play. I personally love the humbuckers because they always sound great. Just try and find a guitar like this in the same price range. For such a well made guitar, and one that if I am not mistaken is made in Canada, you can't go wrong especially since Godin includes an awsome pocket-packed gig bag as well.

p.s. another thing to add would be that it comes equipped with decent godin strings which is always a plus.


The only thing I might change would change be to have the strings pulled through the body and have the pick-ups and neck recessed further into the body like its more expensive big brother the "LG."
But then we are obviously going up in price so I can't complain about it at all. If I cared that much about it then I would have just bought the Godin LG hmb (with humbuckers).

You cant get any better than this. My exit 22 feels so solid and I love the way it is crafted. One thing I especially like is not only does the mahogany body look great as mentioned, but since there is no paint to scracth, little dings and dents are hardly noticable to those of you who are like me and occasionally bang your guitar on something because you were excited or being stupid lol

If you were going to go for something a little cheaper - DONT! Save a little extra and get this guitar. When you think about it - you will have your guitar for years hopefully; So why not just get a great guitar now? RIGHT? right.

And if you were thinking of spending a little more money because the price seems a little to low for the quality you were looking for - DONT! Go to your local store, pick up this guitar and give it a whurl. After you love it, just buy it and save some of your hard eraned bucks to put toward your new tube amp or effects pedal. There.... now dont you feel smart about that purchase? yes, you do!

BOTTOM LINE - I know im raving about this guitar and im not trying to say its any Les Paul or top of the line PRS but given the price, great quality and features you cant go wrong with this guitar A+

bbhack's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" nice bright but heavy"

Godin Exit 22
Meeting in the U.S. with components produced in Canada, history circumvent import taxes on the U.S. market.

This is a guitar Performance Series, namely the mid / entry level at Godin. The model is no longer sold since qq years already but it is still found on the second hand market.

For features you can still find the product on the net (http://www.godinguitars.com/godinexit22p.htm), however, to summarize it is a guitar with a mahogany body with a handle in tune gibson, rosewood or maple fingerboard (if my copy), easel and a string through SSH config all stamped Godin (microphones, mechanical and hardware ...).

Note that it was sold with a beautiful cover by Godin Tobago, very strong and ultra well padded. Probably the most beautiful cover comes with an instrument of this range there.


The handle is very nice, the junction body / neck is ergonomically cut for easy access to acute. The action can be adjusted to adhere well to the handle.

Mechanical hold the road well and holding agreement poses no worries. The controls are very good and usable on almost the entire race.

Against by the guitar is really heavy, it weighs as much as a old LP. Suffice to say that it is very difficult to play long standing, at least if you are not saplings as a means North American.


Sound vacuum is very promising, the violin is very well made.

Once connected we find, unfortunately, a very general guitar, with a small range of not disgusting but relatively devoid of personality sounds.

The positions of the microphones and controls not allow a lot of variations but the sound is sorely lacking in character.

I moderate a bit about my playing for the first two pickups you get two out three clear sounds pretty cool and good amp helping, to use effectively to rhythmic.


The violin is of good quality and would really deserved a set of microphones in more pronounced character.

Personally I had discovered during a stocking and I flashed on the ergonomics (low action, very good access to acute, not a sound disgusting) Then I played for about a year, alternating two other guitars in a reggae / funk oriented training.

I did not use that rhythm, only clear sound plugged into a Blues Jr. In this context I managed to find my happiness with both three blasts that went well.

I had sold for two main reasons: a pissed sounds certainly correct, however, not very inspiring, especially because of the weight too complex.

It is still found on the second hand market for a price quite correct. In view of the quality of the violin, I think if you have the budget for an upgrade pickups and muscles that can support its weight, we can do sth quite nice.

What can I say? I have a start over us! and then want to change but do not want the "big" sound when I try Gison and there I found a scratch that sounds great with a top look, the Godin Exit 22 !!!!!


Compared to my Start over us (which I think is already a good guitar) nothing to say, the Godin Exit 22 has a very cozy round to play, and the different settings are very good microphones, there are really nice sounds in the fontion position, selector,
ha yes ... it is something much heavier than my Start, but damn what she is beautiful!! ok, I'm biased ... but frankly it sounds and it is beautiful to the touch and look ....


In my group (Hal Bopp at Le Havre), it is virtually all styles
rock, folk, celite, tango, samba brief the fact that no problems!!
I own bandit 112 amp and a Boss ME 30
for settings, I like the second position from the handle, the fourth also
the bridge position for a well passebien rock


I use it for a few months but already a few gigs with and nothing to say
it's a beautiful guitar with quality / price ratio that seems very good!
to summarize:
the price is very decent compared to the violin (nice)
I think it looks great, it sounds great
choice again?
YES now!
