Godin Artisan ST I
Unlike the person who posted the previous review I actually have purchased a Godin ST1 6900 Francs in 1996 ST 1 are the high end of the series model. They are all more or less translucent lacquer red, cognac burst, sunburst or blue, a maple-like bird eyes mesh table with a cream and a vibrato or Shaller 2000 (always sold at 200 Euros each) or a vibrato Wilkinson VS100 disengaged. The ST1 has never been manufactured with a black glaze and a low end Khaler vibrato. If you come across this model is an Ultimate ST2 was sold half price Godin ST1. It's like buying a Squier and post a notice on the page standard Fender US, 0).
ST1 has 22 frets and a maple neck rather fine in Birdeyes. The pickups are dual-type Hot rails. It has a volume control and a tone for that also push / pull function to activate a filter that gives the impression of passing simple. I never use it because I find any sound when activated. The selector is a 5-position of very good quality that sometimes deserves to be tightened. Simply unscrew it from the table and tighten the screw that is in the center.


The guitar is light compared to a Fender Strat CBS 78 or Les Paul. It's pretty balanced. The handle is one of the most enjoyable I've had to use. While on the handle of an Axis Super Sport is over. At his guitar is very versatile and allows for fine funky riff and we easily get a nice creamy crunchy. Live it going pretty easily in the mix and supports very well the transition in large multi-effects. It goes well with a Marshall TSL or AXE FX II. She goes out of tune very little and for me the ropes rarely break while I often provides benefits to 4:00 being both rhythmic than solo.


For rock pop and blues rock she wonders. She is super suitable for Jazz Fusion (had the guitar Michel Cusson UZEB). It is really made for metal or Hard.


I use it for 18 years and I've tried a plethora of models before and after (Gibson Les Paul, Fender Stratocaster, Ibanez Sabre, Leduc ...). The only ones that have convinced me are from Musicman. I have two Axis Super Sport. With experience I will buy a Musicman. But Godin ST1 is a great opportunity if you do not have the means to pay you a Musicman or Suhr that cost three times the price of nine.
What I like about this guitar is its versatility, the beauty of the wood and the quality of the finish. She has hardly bougée for all these years despite many flight hours.

Godin Artisan ST I
Guitar type "high end" for a reasonable budget (6000F in 93)
Manufacturing Canada: it's srieux
trs bne handle end button (not chic?) trs discrete taken on the section that adds a class indniable ct. Table birds eyes: it can be bought to hang on the wall: it is a work of art!
Wilkinson Bridge (DIFFERENT from that in the photo that seems to be a floyd): dual (flexible when used, when fixed Release the pin that locks when the Systm) simple and clever: we can finally be just double bend without giving up the vibrato!
three microphones "hot rails" type duncan Godin signs (these are the same)


Channel super comfortable. It's the easiest I've used (with one of my Vigier) is fine, soft to the touch and tough alloy frets (hardly uses in 12 years) with acute CHAC is correct, the bead is refined towards the palm, but still a 22 cases (24 cases one loses what it gains in its Accessibility assistive technology software)
The guitar is relatively lgre, the buttons are well disposs (less prs strings that strato)
Unlike other notice placed on this site, I am excited about the vibrato! It is extremely stable, and fixing the bridge at rest is more indniable. However, this mcanique of precision requires a long time rglage, do it with patience and attention to detail ...


So the must be clear: there is more strat stamp in a classic Fender even if the register is the scope of this instrument. In between, the power is impressive (almost teachers: I use my Carvin between low lights to avoid saturating light) The spectrum is wide: bass and treble are Submitted. In saturated trs is convincing, jazzy singing and happy (not so far from Gibson as a) sustain, more than enough, we clearly moves away from the twang and vintage. Splitter can be in the single-coil pickups by pulling on the knob of Tone. We then approach a single coil sound like ssl1 but more acidic. Its so smooth and modern. I put 9 because of a lack of characters that is the price of the versatility ...


Less than 1000 euros is a bargain. We are in the high end. This guitar has no complex or do about Tom Anderson Valley Arts. It is a quality manufacturing irrprochable. You can do anything with, but she keeps a modern orientation in the sound. A truly beautiful object that almost take on hsite scne!

Godin Artisan ST I
Much has already been said in the previous opinion. I just want to emphasize that the photo does not correspond at all to the ST1 I met who are much more beautiful: tables with transparent varnish of beautiful red maple on a bird-like eyes with a little cream making around. The bridge is a Wilkinson and not a Pink Floyd as in the photo, and more all acastillage is golden. It's really high-end. In 17 years of loyal service the guitar has not changed and it is a model for holding agreement. The handle is perfect (it has never been easier). The pickups are humbuckers in simple format. The settings are very simple with a split button tone when it is drawn.


Channel and access are ideal. The weight is correct. Like the body is a strato chafreiné in the back (but not at the front for the arms). The sound is very well described in the previous comment: a lot of power, humbuckers sound very far from his Fender, and closer to a Gibson strangely. A modern sound that adapts well to a distortion.


If the dual mode is very good, split mode does not suit me, I use it very rarely. In any case it does not approach that of a stratovolcano, it is more crystalline and light. The guitar gives food for thought for any purpose. Delays react particularly well.


I have this guitar since 1992 (the beginning of Godin) and I do not part with it. Power, silent operation, the quality of the neck, frets and touch are exceptional. The Freeway and Velocity are fairly close to the ST1 in terms of violin (but not micro). A professional instrument.

jeffguitar's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent ..."

Godin Artisan ST I
A guitar with humbuckers and split into three simple, that has so lived as I had more money in the luthier to refurbish its purchase price but I do not sell ...

I still play it once a week, as each of my many guitars ...

I also played a Godin 'guitar every day "to avoid damaging my other guitars ...

An excellent choice for the poylvalence of the craft. Warning! It is not sound to Start, it's more sound to the Ibanez ...

The Violin is excellent and mine is MADE IN CANADA.


Start of form, nothing to complain of nowhere.

Excellent handle, not super fast but good ...

The sound? 3 humbuckers
and split ... So 16 possibilities ...


I do not play it since I left the group in which it was vériétés wonder. Indeed, the strat covered too voice and Gibson was too acute for me.

The sound is fairly neutral when the rule though, no one hears it does not cover anyone.


I too long ...

I fell in love with the color that was the ugliest of the store.

Most? Versatility
The least?? Nothing ...

The value for money? It would cost four times the current price for a guitar of this quality.
