Hello all,

After looking at the Gibson Vintage LP and reading everyones replies. I have steered clear for now as it would be a mail oder. I think the advice of playing what you buy as a good idea.

I have been around my local shops and The Godin line seems nice. Great tone, nice finishes as well.

They have the Ghost pickup system installed in the bridge available as well. (13 Pin) Synth access too.

I have also looked at a Hagstrom and a Washburn at the same place.

But the Godin line seems to be ahead at this point. Does anyone have any experience with these

These models all available Godin Guitars

So far The Exit 22, LG P90, LG hmb, Solidac and the Freeway SA from that line.

From this line More Godin
I like the LGXT although I think it may be too high end for me.

If anyone is familiar with any of the models I mentioned, please let me know. I am getting close. I have been to this shop 4 times over the last week.

Godin is a good brand of guitars and it has been around for a while although not as recognized as fender ,gibson ect.My advice dont buy a guitar based on it's name or look.If you like the sound of the godin and it's comfortable then its for you.One thing to consider to is playing the guitar on your own amp and seeing what it sounds like.I have played guitar s at music stores on there amps and when i heard it on mine it was a huge differnce.Good luck with picking a guitar.

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.
