About Godin Guitars

Godin guitars offers a true alternative to the usual styles and shapes of electric guitars that we see every day. Spearheaded by master luthier Robert Godin, this is an innovative company based in Quebec, Canada, where all of the guitars are designed and built.

Godin guitars are diverse in design: solid body guitars with synth-ready technology rub shoulders with defiantly retro hollow body jazz guitars such as the Godin 5th Avenue. Such juxtaposition works for Godin since there is a real cohesion to the overall design styles: their most technologically advanced instruments are quite classically styled and their most traditional instruments are made with cutting edge design and manufacturing innovations. There is a real balance to the work carried out - to a large degree by hand - in Quebec by Godin.

Godin guitars are the central nucleus of a large family of brands all emanating from the Godin business umbrella: Norman, Seagull, Art & Lutherie and Simon & Patrick are all brands within the Godin stable.

We are one of the UK's largest Godin dealers and we have a long history with all of the brands including Godin electric guitars. If you want something that is world class yet affordable, Godin is a brand you will definitely want to check out and guitarguitar is the place to visit first!
