Foreword: signature model or not, I know nothing at all (and we do not care for that matter)

Guitar made in Canada, where shoot beautiful bird's eye maple (fortunately mine is more beautiful than the picture above!)
22 frets, micro Godin SC but with two bars: the hybrid between singles and doubles? (Real origin of digging: Seymour perhaps?)
Wilkinson vibrato bridge with
Start with micro switch type 2 positions: high-volume button (thud) and button down (its brilliant)

UTILIZATION

Channel U super nice, kind of scratching Highway: has not moved for 13 years
the sound is really very typical multi-strat and a powerful output level (the same as my Jacobacci equipped with 2 double Di Marzio), I found a similar sound, especially in positions 2 and 4 (typical strat) with a Start of old US 78 who had a "big" sound for a stratum. I think the quality of the sound comes from two bars located on the microphone.
It's a guitar myself for 13 years at home and live or in studio
only weak point: the vibrato, it must be set from time to time and a little galley c (since we forgot the right moves at once to another), and second, it is supposed to hang in rest position and the case c if it is set correctly, but if its use is abused, the guitar goes out of tune a little bit anyway.
Also, the position of "high volume" has never found favor in my ears (so I only positions that 5 of 10)

SOUNDS

So, not recommended for furious vibrato
it should if not all styles of zic, though really do not get the sound with Metheny (but it still stands to play jazz with the neck pickup, tone serious background, a small chorus and a compressor)
I used it with a lot of stuff from the time right now with a Line 6 pod xt live: c terrible! Gretch use modeling with vintage reverb that goes well, put the mic the guitar in the bridge position and go for the big Chuck Berry (with a type "strata", who would have thought?)!
Seriously, I use most often position 4 micro well and it slams it right if one has a good amp behind

OVERALL OPINION

Finally, I would say that since the time it is part of the family and I do not part with it one day, I think the scratch has certainly influenced my game and my sound for 13 years I have: a beautiful love story!
