Godin took the traditional semi hollow body design and made it fit to the guitar player of today. The Godin Montreal Premiere is a wonderful center block semi hollow guitar which sports a body of almost 15" wide, Mahogany body and top and two powerful Seymour Duncan humbucker pickups. The result is a versatile thinline guitar that can go from Jazz to Rockabilly, Rock, Funk and more. It has pristine clean tone but deals well with gain pedals too. However, we would not recommend going with heavy distortion pedals as it is still a semi hollow. The glossy finish looks great and the guitar is pretty light which makes it great for long sessions.
