    Want something smaller and lighter than a 335 with all the chime, punch and growl of P-90's? This beautiful Godin has great clarity and is good for many styles. Excellent instrument with flawless workmanship. 6 lbs 13 oz. 14 3/4" lower bout. $900 PP shipped.

    I can use my imagination based on these descriptions from guitar mags. Godins are nice, imho.

    the Godin uses a relatively more engineered approach. The result is a spruce block just a little wider than the pickup rings that’s arched at the three points along its length. The visual effect is akin to having a old stone bridge or Roman aqueduct inside your guitar, and the practical result is a smart compromise between weight savings, sustain, and structural integrity. According to Godin, this core considerably enhances the guitar’s resonant qualities.

    There are three ‘arches’ that are carved through the core’s lower half with the idea being to give the best of a centre block – increased sustain and stability alongside reduced feedback – with the established tonal benefits of a fully hollow-bodied guitar. The carving is undertaken by hand and, although the guitar’s weight is unavoidably increased by the spruce inside, we feel this is a inventive concept somewhere between trestle bracing and a traditional centre-block.
