Here is a rare Godin Montreal Mahogany, just traded in great shape and well looked after since new.
Weight: 8.9 lbs
S/N: 07474100, Built on September 18, 2007 - verified by Godin Head Office.
This beauty, the Montreal, was the evolution of Godin's Flat Five (Flat V) and Flat V-X.
It is in overall excellent condition with minor age related scratches around the guitar, light pick scratches, and one ding in the finish back edge of the guitar as shown. Very little fretwear as shown, beautiful smooth fret edges, and this guitar is an absolute joy to play. Comes with a Godin hype sheet detailing the specs, and a Levy's CM20JL padded gig bag (price tag on it was 125.95 from years ago).
Outstanding construction and impeccable build quality. Actual pictures shown.
Montreal’s love affair with jazz was the inspiration for Godin’s latest guitar, which is—fittingly—named, Montreal. The Montreal is the latest in a series of two-voiced guitars from Godin that marry the electric sound from traditional magnetic pickups with the acoustic sound from saddle transducers in the bridge. The two-chamber body of the Montreal is carved from a solid block of Mahogany and capped with a carved solid mahogany top adorned with two F-holes and cream binding. The 22-fret, 24 ¾ scale, neck is also fashioned from mahogany, and shaped for exceptional comfort by means of Godin’s ergocut technique. Hardware is black and gold including, two Godin humbuckers, a bridge loaded with L.R.Baggs transducer saddles, and an on-board preamp EQ. The two humbucking pickups produce an extensive range of sounds thanks to a special 5-way switch that provides five distinct tones on its own. Add in the bridge transducers and the palette of sounds becomes infinite. The two outputs are set up so that the electric and acoustic voices can be blended in the guitar using a single patch cord or at the amp/mixer using both outputs. Jazz and Blues players will love the way this guitar sounds and feels. The city of Montreal should also be pleased, as this guitar is as cool as its namesake.
