Guitar Shop TV met recently with Richard Bunze of Godin Guitars to check out its exciting new line of electric and acoustic guitars for 2012, including the Godin Session Plus model, the Fifth Avenue Uptown model (nominated for best electric guitar of the year), its Icon series, and other exciting models. We also discuss Godin’s amazing work with Candaian super band Arcade Fire to support the children of Haiti (Guitar Shop TV plans to produce a feature article on the Godin-Arcade Fire Haiti Project in a forthcoming episode, stay tuned!)
With its early beginnings in 1972, the Godin Guitar family now includes 7 lines of guitars. These include the renowned Godin & Richmond electric lines, as well as the finely crafted acoustic lines such as Seagull, Simon & Patrick, Norman, Art & Lutherie and LaPatrie nylon stringed classical guitars. Godin Guitars is also the manufacturer of the revolutionary TRIC acoustic guitar case and is the North American distributor of high-end Italian made SR Technology acoustic amplifiers. Based in Montreal, Quebec, this Canadian company has 6 factories, 5 of which are located in the Eastern Townships of Quebec and 1 located in Berlin, New Hampshire.
