Godin Session
Made in Canadan (hand)
Godin strat bridge-type knife
Handle type modern stratocaster
22 frets (fingerboard)
Pickups Godin GS-1 and GH-1 HSS
One volume, one tone (split the humbucker)
5 positions selector strat guy


Channel Type strat recent very pleasant without being a kind of highway Ibanez or Jackson.
The guitar is heavier than the reference model but the wood used is maple center and poplar for the wings. The vacuum is already his singing.
The access to acute is the standard of what tupe guitar without worries. This is not a 24 cases either.
Are obtained through the strato typed sounds simple and the famous sound and central neck pickup in position 2 of the selector. This is less true for the 4-position with split humbucker and middle pickup.
For the Bridge position humbucker delivers a sound, say modern vintage capable of heavy riffs hard but not metal like a emg.D 'aillor balance between the simple and the double is consistent.


I play in a cover band mainly pop rock revival to the present day through the 80s.
So my style will creedence to the Muse through the blues brothers, trust and say strait.
This guitar is highly versatile and allows for a wide range of sounds.
I plug in a Laney VC 30 (1HP HH) and through a HT Dual overdriven sounds (I only use the clean channel of the amp, I use the drive to boost).
My pedal board is analog MXR Carbon Copy and Dyna Comp, Chorus Palmer and Cry baby. I get most of the sounds I want to rock with this guitar.

Only the sound of the humbucker split does not suit me but I found the whole guitar I tested with this type of wiring.


I use it for two and half years without worry. I re set a few months ago and I admit that I take pleasure to play regularly.
I tried other brands like yamaha, ibanez, squier but nothing comparable for the same price that will be used in wood or fittings.

I do not like my guitar is the vibrato. At the same time not being at all expert I do not use it.

What I like is that for less than 500 euros you can joueravec realism on a pro guitar twice cheaper than American Strat in the same config and little more is made in America.

LE.GLAD's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a clever mixture of strato and tele"

Godin Session
made in canada
maple neck basswood body canada
22 frets
Two single microphone dual splitable
5-way switch a tone you push pull volume
same pace as the fenders


handle at the top very fast access to good ergonomics acute harder than the sg but c is not a good sg


con has a style all
except perhaps what if the metal was what it takes to pedal ca must do a little power but the rest is top c
selector knobs and react immediately and the difference in sound is amazing
c is clearly guitar for those who wanted a stratovolcano and the tv they both one and the price is awesome c


I've recently and since j did not touch the sg
j went to the store to buy a strat and I'm left with the godin

RikéRak's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" What this Canadian Kiff!"

Godin Session
Made in Canada and assembled in the USA, the body is basswood Laurentia, the sleeve 22 frets maple with rosewood fingerboard, frets mediums, vintage bridge with 2-point tremolo, three pickups (a single handle, a central and a single humbucker splittable the bridge), a 5-way switch, 1 volume knob and a tone (which splits the humbucker)


The handle is very comfortable to the touch, satin back, a little confusing at first (u flattened shape in the middle) but can bind barre chords and solos very quickly. Access to the treble is very easy unless you have bunches to place fingers. The sustain is very good. The guitar is neither too heavy nor too light, in the middle of a classic Strat. The body is slightly narrower than a Stratocaster is well balanced.


As the Stratocaster is a versatile guitar. Also with an HSS configuration and split twice I tend to find him more versatility. The control buttons are very progressive and allow to refine the sound remarkably. The neck pickup delivers sounds great for blues and jazz, the middle pickup is closest to the sound "Fender" slamming good to play the SRV, the double bridge will go on to register a Rock / Hard Rock without going up 'distos to metal.
I plug in an Epiphone Valve Junior or Peavey Backstage (1982 manufactured in the USA) with a pedalboard (disto Yamaha DI-01, a Ruby Drop in Elypse analog overdrive, a Boss CE-5 chorus and a Boss FDR-1 ).
With or without the sounds effects are excellent, only the two split singles is slightly behind with just under the potato and the central shaft.


I use it for 2 months every day (even for 5 minutes!. I tested quite a few models Fender Strat (or Squier) and Yamaha Pacifica. I wanted a versatile guitar in mind for my Strat Ibanez SB70 to 1981 is getting old. I love this guitar wood, sunburst finish, the finish quality is excellent. I think it exceeds the Fender Mexican and some U.S.. I found the finishing touch and the perfect Pacifica 611 but these are the sounds of the Godin which have refined my decision. Also a guitar at this price and built on the North American continenet with Canadian species ... and little more in my final choice: Godin does not use wood cut trees but trees that have fallen! An ecological reflex is not negligible.
If it all over again I would do this choice in a heartbeat and with a little more money in your pocket I think I would pass easily to a higher range in Godin.

Godin Session
Made in Canada, assembled in the USA.
Good grip, I mean, sometimes it takes a little time to adapt to the handle, this is not the case with this model.
Lutherie subtly sober and well finished, you can feel right away that it's sturdy, designed by enthusiasts, for musicians in the budget a bit limited.
I wanted a guitar of good quality, while being able if need out of its nest bush without much apprehension.
The cover is also provided with good quality.


Handle very nice.
Sounds particularly satisfactory.
Not the lightest but not the heaviest non-plus ....
Good access to acute.
She saw the head, we can say without going too far that it was directly inspired Stratocasters, and in terms of my little experiment, I think she really has nothing to envy the models found for a few hundred euros +.


Very versatile, 5 + positions of the split humbucker.
Clear sound, crunch, overdrive on the Marshall VS80.
"They" are just the introductions but it is clear that there is a very good agreement between the guitar and amp. It promises to long .... at least I hope so.

Good sustain.


Used only a few hours but completely convinced.
Having tried other models (strat, washburn ...), it is this which is imposed without much difficulty ....
It had been several months since I was lusting over, so no big surprises.
To see how it will evolve over time, if necessary I will share my impressions.

I also like the idea that by buying this brand, it is guaranteed that the beginning to the end of its manufacture, he must consider the human and environmental aspects of our time, which is far from the case of many, if not most, of the other brands.
