In the fifty years since they were founded, Godin’s award-winning Guitars have built up an incredible reputation for sound and style. Borrowing from classic rock, blues, and jazz designs, they combine a modern approach with a vintage aesthetic to create some of the most gorgeous instruments on the market today.
For an example of this stunning approach to guitar making, one need look no further than the Godin Summit Classic HB. At just a glance, this striking Canadian guitar screams ‘born to rock’, but that’s nothing compared to how it sounds.
Do you want to capture the sound of classic rock? Or slow things down with a blues-inspired melody? Either way, this is the guitar for you.
Fully loaded with two Seymour Duncan pickups (an Alnico II and a ’59) the Summit Classic HB is ready to rock your socks off. Add to that Godin’s HDR system – which strengthens the highs and mids while tightening the bass frequencies – and it’s easy to see what gives this guitar such a superb sound.
In terms of feel, the Summit Classic HB is well-balanced and very comfortable to play. The mahogany body and neck are accompanied by an extremely dense Richlite fretboard which helps to stabilise the neck. Furthermore, they’re both water resistant meaning you can expect this guitar to stay in good condition for years to come.
Let’s face it, for many people, Godin are synonymous with Canadian guitar manufacturing. That’s quite the responsibility, but it’s one that they just keep living up to. The Summit Classic HB is Godin at their finest and who can say no to that?
Of course, that’s just what we think. Give it a listen here at Tonepedia for a truly unbiased sound review. You won’t be disappointed by what you hear.
