About Godin Acoustic Guitars

Godin acoustic guitars actually span many brands including Seagull and Art & Lutherie, all made through a mixture of cutting edge technology and good old fashioned handiwork in Quebec, Canada. Godin is the umbrella under which all of these brands operate and in fact Godin have several acoustic guitars under their own name too. Chief of these is the Godin Multiac range, a collection of stage-focused acoustic instruments armed with a plethora of handy features for the performing acoustic guitarist. These are available with both steel and nylon strings to truly offer a guitar for every player.

Some of Godin's popular 5th Avenue series is also acoustic. Their popular Kingpin guitar is offered as a true acoustic in beautiful finishes including the company's trademark 'Cognac Burst'.
