Godin Richmond Empire

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Godin guitars have been Canada’s most well known acoustic guitar manufacturer for years, but until now, their electric guitars have been their best-kept secret.

From a construction viewpoint, Godin instruments go toe-to-toe with the bigger American brands and their models feature top quality parts and hardware. Most models feature pickups by Seymour Duncan as stock. The necks feel great, the finishes are clean and attractive, and the factory setups are well done. Most are either built in Canada, or in Godin’s US plant from Canadian parts.

Best of all, you can’t beat the price for a guitar made in Canadian or the US! If you’re considering a guitar made elsewhere, you owe it to yourself to check out the Godin electric models.

The Godin Richmond Empire is named after the town of Richmond, Quebec, where these great guitars are assembled, from parts made in La Patrie, Quebec.

The Richmond Empire models feature a bolt-on neck construction and deliver a retro style. There are two main models – one with P90-style Godin Kingpin pickups, and one with a humbucker at the bridge and a single coil at the neck. Bodies are solid mahogany, or silver leaf maple on a mahogany or poplar back. The necks are mahogany with rosewood fingerboards.
