Taking you back to when the archtop acoustic guitar reigned supreme, the Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin combines the traditional styling and classic tone of those coveted 1950s archtop acoustic guitars with today's level of modern playability -- all at a price that won't break the bank.
The body of the Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin features a molded arched top and back crafted from Canadian Wild Cherry, offering dynamically rich tone with more projection and volume in the lower midrange than traditional archtop acoustics. The top sports a pair of classic f-holes and a floating pickguard while the entire body flaunts cream binding and a custom polished finish that creates a beautiful satin sheen reminiscent of the French polish of the 1800s. The 24.84" scale neck is carved from Silver Leaf maple and capped with a 16" radius rosewood fingerboard. Whether you're unplugged or playing through your favorite amp, the 5th Avenue Kingpin sounds great both acoustically and electrically. A single Godin Kingpin P90 single-coil pickup in the neck position gives the 5th Avenue Kingpin a voice with a little bit of attitude, and of course, all of that classic, vintage tone with superb presence and clarity. The no-nonsense controls consist of a single volume control and single tone control. The contoured high-gloss black headstock comes loaded with a set of chrome tuners. At the other end of the guitar, the 5th Avenue Kingpin carries an adjustable GraphTech Tusq bridge and a chrome tailpiece. Whether you're playing Country, Blues, Slide, Jazz or Rock, The Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin is sure to satisfy. Available in Cognac Burst, Black, and Natural. Case not included.
