One of Canada’s finest exports, Godin have built up quite a reputation for quality and innovation. This Kingpin is in excellent as new condition having only had a short studio outing before coming to us via a good customer. If you’re looking for a vintage sound with modern playability, look no further.
A word from the manufacturer…
The 5th Avenue CW Kingpin features a Cutaway body design and the added sound of the Godin Kingpin P90 single-coil pickup, which delivers all that classic vintage tone with presence, clarity, and a little attitude thrown in for good measure!
With the soul of a 1950s 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 on your wallet. The Godin 5th Avenue Series now makes the dream of owning an affordable North American archtop 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 19th century.
