    Nominated "Best Electric Guitar" at the 2011 Music & Sound awards, the versatile Godin 5th Avenue Uptown GT offers players a North American-made, Bigsby-equipped archtop guitar at a more modest price point. The top, back and sides of this rockin' archtop cutaway are crafted from Canadian wild cherry, with the exception of the Trans Red model that sports a beautiful flame maple top with a Canadian wild cherry foundation. The molded arched top sports two classic f-holes, a black Godin pickguard and a beautiful custom polished Gloss finish while the sides and molded arched back are finished in semi-gloss. Cream binding on the body and contoured high-gloss headstock provides an elegant aesthetic touch. The neck is carved from Silver leaf maple and capped with a 16"-radius ebony fingerboard with 21 frets and dot inlays.

    Whether you play jazz, fusion, rockabilly or hard blues-rock, the Godin 5th Avenue Uptown GT is sure to satisfy all of your sonic cravings with a pair of Custom Godin Humbucker pickups. The no-nonsense controls consist of a 3-way pickup selector toggle switch and simplistic single volume & tone controls for on the fly tonal tailoring. The Bigsby tremolo is paired with a roller saddle adjustable bridge featuring a Tusq base by Graphtech and a set of high-ratio tuning machines to keep this guitar in tune even after the most extreme vibrato effect. Assorted color options. Includes revolutionary 5th Avenue archtop TRIC case.
