Godin guitars are assembled in Richmond, Quebec and Berlin, New Hampshire. The necks and bodies are all made in our original location in La Patrie, Quebec.
They are also known for other brands which including the Seagull steel string and LaPatrie nylon string guitars (which we also are glad to offer here at Imperial Guitar).
All over the world guitar players are making exciting new music that explores new techniques and defies categorization. All of this new guitar music is complemented by the guitars’ almost limitless capacity for variation in design. Unlike most other instruments, which have followed the same design parameters for decades, the modern guitar continues to evolve. Godin is constantly reviewing and refining the techniques employed to craft them, the materials used to build them, and the integration of the latest developments in related electronics.
Exploring these possibilities is what Godin is all about.
The goal with each Godin guitar is to find the perfect balance between the finest traditions of guitar crafting and the new design concepts that they are developing. After 25 years of guitar building they still hand-finish the necks on every Godin guitar. In fact, from fretting to sanding, there is more handwork in Godin guitars than you would find in most custom shops. From the selection of the wood to the final adjustments on the finished instrument, each Godin guitar is designed, built, stocked and sold by people who love guitars.
