Back to the roots.
There have been Archtop guitars for nearly a century now but still Godin decided to have their own approach of it called 5th Avenue. Light and balanced with a thin wild cherry top that resonates extremely well, a smooth and fast Leaf Maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard and two Kingpin P90 single coils – that’s the 5th Avenue CW Kingpin II in a nutshell. It has a remarkable amount of sustain and it sounds very even throughout the frequencies with slightly scooped mids. While the neck pickup sounds warm and full, the bridge pickup is bright to sometimes even harsh but still both P90s are very capable of transporting the sound and feel of this amazing Archtop.
Godin follows a compassion for detail that is exemplary.
