Nothing to add ... mahogany, rosewood, violin hand ... A piece of wood nobility ...
The electronics are very standard ... for the U.S. / CAN. Excellent pickups, 5-way switch fragile, replaced in the first year. Knobs ... nothing to say, they still do the job after 15 years. Special mention for the hard case gibson custom way, nice and very solid.
Wide and flat handle. More versatile and reconcile, I do not think it exists.
It is an instrument of unstoppable study, and once tamed the beast takes you to the end of life, without flinching.
I play everything with this guitar. H is just monstrous and 2 S U.S. strat sound.
Jazz, rock, metal are his favorites. But you can also hunt blue, funk, pop or rock, if necessary. Although for me, it remains the preserve of the Telecaster ...
In clean / crunch, we will sound warm low round neck S, the scathing and straight casseroles H bridge, sweeping a very coherent and homogeneous range of timbres and tones without ever feeling jittery volume or power.
Saturated, the same conclusion, and the flat very accessible button in acute facilitates pull effects and taping (for amateurs, I'm not a fan ...). The H bridge is apocalyptic cranked ...
Basically, it is a professional instrument, no more, no less.
Everything has been said, I'll tell you my story.
In 1998 I got robbed. It took my beautiful and rare Fender Japan Strat Lake Placid Blue Rosewood ... my first electric bought by my father for my 14 years in 1988. One with which I had learned everything. My first love ...
There followed two years of absolute mourning during which I could not look at an electric guitar in the window without crying again and again my beautiful blue. And it is this Godin who saved me and out of total abstinence electrical, turning radius of a guitar shop frankly installed near me.
Ouahow ... Not bad Godin, remarkable qualities, incredible price ... I take ... However I was told it would do as long as I can afford to offer me THE high-end Strat the same blue as my late, and then ... I never could bring myself to part with it, or even to complete. I should never find anything approaching even Fender, because it is much more than a great concept Strat copy. It is a strat reinvented by Godin whose makers are among the best in the world.
So I never new translucent blue strat. I'm going to offer me a Deluxe Tele Aged Cherry Burst Rosewood U.S. for my 40 years.
If you are lucky enough to find a copy of this Godin day, try here, you will understand from the first riff what this guitar is a unique instrument, which may not please you, but can not leave you indifferent.
Why have stopped production? Why so few resources on the net?
The firm Godin told me that this model was not recipe at the time. It was Fender or nothing (Dire straits going to Bercy for ultimate tour strat forward ...).
He did not even have more documents or archives ... ??

Apparently made in Canada, she is beautiful, blue and white, with case, purchased
........ 300 euros for this aberrant quality guitars that do not sell more expensive occasion!
I've always played on SG and Les paul gibson epiphone, I thought not being able to switch brands.
Handle very nice, excellent finish, only problem visually and its level is slightly less than gibson Rock.
factory assembled in Canada to USA
type of vibrato Scheller
22 frets rosewood handle very comfortable
handle precise and fast too flat
between fender and ibanez prestige series
this guitar is easy to play again Godin offers a beautiful and
good violin pleasant to watch the tape less than a competition but oeuil
more engaging in its most pro look "less toy" ...
LGT is made to make music under pro Baths
is it a hardware quiped size for versatility that will delight a
At ease in all the paths between jazz rock hard or international variety
it addresses all "finger's in the Noise"!
we really get it all style sounds good on the following equipment utiliss effects!
for by my boss ME 70 AND ON THE FACT ITS provides the Godin his job and he responded well to all solicitations
in an amp is close to the stratum for both single coil and humbucker in bridge with one that is not the best in the type series, but good definition and its large root's possible
a good set of microphones and therefore at worst if you like it not so plate screwdriver soldering iron and put it makes you kiffer godin wood is
that we buy and the quality of the finish before all! but the original set is really very good ...
J have the GTL for a month and half a small twenty bf with
and frankly it's reassuring to attack it with a live ...
AC frieze not return strings in place, the vibrato is accurate, it's just up and down and that's why, as I took it because I have lots of scratches in the same court therefore between 500 and 700 euros, which does not happen at the ankle
It comes compete with my strat U.S. and even if the fender face a bit more than she spends an evening on the stand (it is heavier as well) should be the godin
a lil less than 700 grams, but well over three hours of live scales more
well you can go there with closed eyes is good guitar and more on mechanical grip as with layers of luxury then this is j stopped to lick the boots blues j dej think you understand .. ..
