Godin: 5TH AVENUE CB(Item ID: 5TH AVENUE CB Serial#: 03125004073)
Archtop Acoustic with Satin Cognac Burst Finish
From the Godin website:
"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."
One might be inclined to dismiss this guitar because of its simple, rather understated appearance, but that would be a loss, because, as many have learned, appearances can be deceiving. Instead, one should be prepared to be pleasantly surprised, if not inspired, by the remarkably refreshing sound this guitar produces. Somewhat like its appearance, the sound is simple, direct, and crisp, and at the same time, it has an unexpected boldness and body to its voice that adds weight and definition to its tight, cutting projection. Add easy playability to this surprisingly enjoyable sound, and what do you get? Fun!
