Gold for a reason…
The Summit Classic P90 is another fine example of Godins craftsmanship. It looks good, it feels good and it certainly sounds good. The Seymour Duncan P90 single coils perform beautifully and manage to convey the subtle nuances in the guitarists style. It is an honest, direct tone with a lot of overtone and spank. By activating the built in H.D.R. system the pickups become active and offer a brighter, more powerful tone. Unfortunately, when enabling the active circuit sometimes quiet cracking noises appear – no deal breaker but one could live without.
Even playing the Summit Classic P90 unplugged is a delight because of the great set-up and the sheer endless sustain that it produces. Well, it’s not the cheapest guitar around, but every cent is well spent on this Godin.
