Godin Freeway Classic

Godin Freeway ClassicPublished on 09/08/04 at 15:00
I bought the Freeway Classic through a local distributor for $380.

I was looking for an inexpensive but quality guitar for my kid. I picked up the Freeway and noticed how solid and tightly made it felt. The finish was very fine (metal flake Burgundy). The maple neck felt well finished and slender like a strat. Then I saw on the head "Part made in Canada. Assembled in the USA". I was surprised to see a fine Canda/US made guitar at half the price of a US made Fender Strat. When I started picking around on it (unplugged), I could hear the sustain and the clarity of the notes. I told the salesman that I'd buy if for myself. The real pleasure started when I plugged it in. The Freeway can...…

I bought the Freeway Classic through a local distributor for $380.

I was looking for an inexpensive but quality guitar for my kid. I picked up the Freeway and noticed how solid and tightly made it felt. The finish was very fine (metal flake Burgundy). The maple neck felt well finished and slender like a strat. Then I saw on the head "Part made in Canada. Assembled in the USA". I was surprised to see a fine Canda/US made guitar at half the price of a US made Fender Strat. When I started picking around on it (unplugged), I could hear the sustain and the clarity of the notes. I told the salesman that I'd buy if for myself. The real pleasure started when I plugged it in. The Freeway can move from twangy Tele all the way to full mellow tones even with 9s. So now I have a finely made, great fitting, instrument that can deliver almost any type of music. BTW- the Freeway has two humbuckers and a single coil and came with the best gig bag I've ever seen.

After 6 months of regular playing, I haven't run into a feature that I don't like yet.

The Freeway is a double cutaway, solid body with two humbuckers, one single coil, a five way switch and tremolo. The neck is maple (mine has a rosewood fretboard). There are several colors (maple flame, metal flake burgundy, black, ...). I estimate it weighs around 8 pounds. When you pick one up you'll immediately feel that this is a substantial instrument, tight and cleanly made.

I was really pleased to be able to get a Canada/US made guitar. Buying the Freeway supports our joint economies and the local communities that host the Godin shops. However, I was even more happy to feel that my money was well spent on quality. Godin has my vote as a great designer and manufacturer. I'd buy another one just to support their company.

Used purchased in Paris in 2008, this is my one and only guitar that sounds myself everywhere and in all circumstances. This is a Canadian built with a floyd and a maple neck. 19 Frêtes, two doubles and one single. A volume control and a tone control (rather inefficient though).

UTILIZATION

The handle is nice weight too. Access to acute me. It sounds everywhere, on all amps, even at Roland cubes. I thought of changing the pickups on occasion but, in fact, the original pickups fully satisfy me for now. One day perhaps, but not see the need for the moment.

SOUNDS

It is quite versatile. I play progressive rock, post-rock, post hardcore. I granted C drop in recent months, with a...…

UTILIZATION

The handle is nice weight too. Access to acute me. It sounds everywhere, on all amps, even at Roland cubes. I thought of changing the pickups on occasion but, in fact, the original pickups fully satisfy me for now. One day perhaps, but not see the need for the moment.

SOUNDS

It is quite versatile. I play progressive rock, post-rock, post hardcore. I granted C drop in recent months, with a strong enough pull, followed by a luthier. She is very well supported operation. She has pretty sharp, while having a good presence in the bass. A little too much midrange for my taste, I often turns on the equalizer, and I put together a little middle strings to be more remote microphones. I love the micro grave for a more bold, the bridge pickup for slamming. The finish is good. Be careful though with tie strap: strap on mine was taken in closing the cover and ripped the screws! Replaced by security locks illico with a screw a little thicker, more problems since. The violin and the mechanical age well.

OVERALL OPINION

I have since 2006. I played a lot of crappy guitars. Store I tested mostly Ibanez in the same price range. The seller has put me in the hands Godin and I fell in love immediately. The report quality price seems excellent.
