The archtop acoustic of the past, for today's modern musician.
The Godin 5th Avenue brings you back to a time when the archtop acoustic guitar reigned supreme. With
the soul of a 1950s archtop, the 5th Avenue is true to the vintage spirit of yesterday with today's level of modern playability.
With more projection and volume in the low and mid tones than traditional archtop acoustic guitars, the dynamically rich tone
of the 5th Avenue makes this sophisticated guitar a dream to play, but not a nightmare to pay for. The Godin 5th Avenue now
makes the affordable North American archtop guitar a reality.
A great deal of time and research went into crafting
the 5th Avenue. Revoiced for the music of today, it would not seem unfamiliar for this guitar to be seen in the hands of artists
the likes of Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Ryan Adams, or even Jack White (White Stripes). From alt-country, Delta blues, slide, jazz
to rock, the 5th Avenue archtop guitar can really deliver.
Made from laminated Canadian wild cherry, the 5th Avenue
guitar's body features a molded arched top and back, as well as an adjustable rosewood bridge, classic F-holes, contoured
high-gloss headstock, floating pickguard and cream binding. The rustic beauty of its custom polished finish gives the 5th
Avenue archtop a gorgeous satin sheen reminiscent of 19th Century French polish.
