Montreal Premiere

Oh, Canada!

The Montreal Premiere from Godin Guitars is a beautiful modern take on the classic semi-hollow design. This proudly Canadian guitar takes the classic Jazz style and retools it to better suit the modern guitar player.
Like other guitars from Godin, the Montreal Premiere is a glorious update on a vintage style. With its gorgeous sunburst colour, and truly iconic shape this guitar is enough to blow you away at a glance, but how does it play?

The Amazing Sound of The Montreal Premiere

It’s hard to overstate just how great this guitar sounds.
Those powerful Seymour Duncan humbuckers really are fantastic for capturing that amazing blues tone while still being versatile enough for a wide variety of genres. It’s good for Jazz, Rockabilly, or even funk.
Although we don’t recommend pumping it through a thick distortion, some light overdrive would definitely be a great compliment to this guitar’s sound.

Have Godin Guitars Perfected the Semi-Hollow Design?

If you’re looking for a wonderful centre-block, semi-hollow guitar, then the Godin Montreal Premiere is for you. The body and top are both built from mahogany and covered with a beautiful layer of gloss. You simply couldn’t ask for a nicer-looking guitar.
But its looks are nothing compared to just how nicely this guitar plays.

Of course, sadly, we can’t show you just how nicely the Montreal Premiere slides into your hands, but we can give you a taster of how it sounds. Check it out here on Tonepedia to hear a selection of samples across a variety of genres, all recorded on this guitar.

The Montreal Premiere might come from the great white north, but it was built for long, hot summer afternoons with cool drinks and good company. Once you pick it up, you’ll never want to put it down again!
