5th Avenue CW Kingpin II
The latest model in the 5th Avenue line-up features a Cutaway body design and the added sounds of two Godin Kingpin P90 single-coil pickups delivering all that classic, vintage tone with presence, clarity and a little attitude thrown in for good measure!
With the soul of a 1950’s archtop, the 5th Avenue is a true vintage spirit of yesterday with today’s level of modern playability. With more projection & volume in the low/mids than traditional archtop acoustic guitars, the dynamically rich tone of the 5th Avenue makes this sophisticated instrument a dream to play, but not a nightmare to pay for. The Godin 5th Avenue now makes the affordable North American archtop guitar a reality! From Alt-Country, Delta Blues, Slide, Jazz to Rock, the 5th Avenue can really deliver both acoustically and electrically.
Made from Canadian Wild Cherry, the body of the 5th Avenue features a molded arched top and back, as well as an adjustable bridge, classic f-holes, contoured high-gloss headstock, floating pickguard and cream binding. Also, the rustic beauty of its Custom Polished Finish creates a gorgeous satin sheen reminiscent of the French polish of the 19th century.
A height-adjustable rosewood bridge lets you dial things to perfection, and the silverleaf maple neck--featuring Godin's "ergocut" shaping technique--is a pleasure to play.
