Godin Summit CT
I had in hands a few moments, very nice guitar.

The handle offers the same sensations a series gibson worn, very raw and catchy, we feel the pores of the wood and the varnish glue nor inhibits paw, a success.
Profile issue it would be a rounded '60s Gigi, very good compromise.

2 humbuckers Seymour is always crystal clear in SD (at the expense of dirtier but more fun, more typical player Dimarzio grain) and it checks again.
Mini active push active electronics, it grows hairy standing out well the dog high mids. As it can disengage we will not complain!

The wiring of the switch is as Gigi 1-3-5, and outer coils of each pickup only 2-4. It is not used with regard to the bridge coil, it would have been wiser to couple with his girlfriend handle.
I do not see why it is not like that of origin, given the price.

Tune o matic without Stoptail, through-and not retained by 6 inserts but a plate strings, it resonates more.

Perfect finish, beautiful violin, no play anywhere're making me blush!


It is ergonomic, not really heavy, sting of sucks, access ozégu very good, yapuka play.

The vacuum is very homogeneous and its articulated good natural sustain.

The handle is great, nothing wrong can be very hard to catch without anything waddles, we feel that the wood is dry and it is built picco bello.

The guitar is high gloss polished, worn brown handle, it is very relevant even though aesthetically it shocks a bit.


Typical SD, light and sound, and violin adds a layer in the brightness and slamming is very responsive and direct.

I personally prefer the dirtiest pickups (Dimarzio) or softer, but it depends on who is behind the amplification of course.

The active circuit ben I do not like too well that it is more successful than usual, I see especially its usefulness to play fingerpicking actually.
But the option is interesting, if you have 20 meters of cable before the amp or DI for example ...

The sound delivered by the single coil is a serious delight.


I intend to buy one day, so it's good.

It is as the name suggests a peak in the electric guitar, really well done.

Now everyone to do with onions, microphones below, wiring there.

A share option 2 selector is just perfect as it is.

Manufacturing Canada

Solid mahogany body: one piece!
Curved flamed maple table: 2parties symmetrical, aesthetically pleasing
Mahogany: soft V and then gradually flattened
Ebony: very few inlays, very sober
22 frets
Scale: 24.75 "
1 humbucker Seymour Duncan Alnico 2
A micro thomann humbucker Seymour Duncan 59
Preamplifier High-Definition Revoicer: a switch
5positions a Strat style selector, 1 tone and 1 volume (both progressive)
Fixed bridge: black, style gibson, traversing ropes.
Color: natural, honey burst slightly
Supplied in bag: quilted, multiple pockets, very functional.


The handle: soft V and then gradually flattened, it is a particular decision, but we made it, then the agreements above the lower ranges
The heel is fine, and the lower part of the guitar is cut, thus facilitating access to acute (need to train too!)

The body thinner than Les Paul, with cut stomach as a Strat, the ergonomics are excellent, it does not weigh too heavy both sitting and standing with a thick strap, she plays very well (errors can he rest, sniff!)

Sound: the pickups are very good at the base (SD anyway!), The action is set low, without any frieze. Both pickups are over and split-selector, where 5 possible sounds.


Amp: VHT 6w, lamps
Neck pickup: rather round, warm, soft
Bridge pickup: sharper, more incisive
the difference between the two microphones is marked, we like it or not ...
The doubles are very good in their field, not made to the extreme!

In split, they are the same sounds without the thickness of the humbucker, very well in clean!

The basic chords are fine, (the original strings are always a great place to make your fingers), then I put in 10-46 elixirs and last initial as standard strings, I prefer the latter, its looks better (it is still subjective!)

The HDR system is not a gimmick, but a reality, it enhances / develops the sound of each pickup is more accurate ((no room for mistakes!).


Spotted in stores in December 2009, I could try it with me 24 hours the next day it was purchased! The finish was natural, but the color was darker, like a honey burst LP ear that I had, I had to make a choice, the LP spike or Godin, I fell for this last parting from the the other, and I do not regret!
The seriousness of Godin's not a legend.
Like guitar or historical or very good instrument, you must choose, it's a compromise that fell within my budget, I chose!

Overall, this is a very good instrument, which certainly has not the aura of some brands but is quality, there is always more expensive better, but worse ...

PS: this is my first opinion, be gentle!

It takes some getting used to the handle, once past this hurdle, the handle is very comfortable, well-tuned, the action is rather low, ebony button provides a sound with a good bite and excellent response.


Whether its for a jazz or dirtier, this guitar is very good. The sustain is impressive, the definition of the agreements is exemplary.


I own several models at Heritage, several Fender, I have also Gibson, Vigier, Parker etc ... This guitar is really at the brand guitars mentioned above. I still lchangé the bridge for a Tonepro for mechanical and Sperzel. But given the price paid and quality of workmanship and finish, worth every stroke. Too bad we do not see more in store.
