1999 Godin Radiator, (front), (back), (headstock), (pickups ), (body/neck markings). Godin has always offered excellent quality guitars at remarkably reasonable prices, especially considering they're assembled in the USA from Canadian parts. Known primarily for their acoustic models, they also build some fine solidbodies such as this Radiator. It has some of the vibe of a 60's Italian-made guitar with the black pearl MOTS top. Click here for a review by GuitarOne.com and here for Ultimate Guitar where it received a 9.3 overall. Features include chambered Silver Leaf Maple body, rock maple neck with maple fretboard, flat 12" radius, shorter 24 3/4" scale, 24 medium jumbo frets, 1 11/16" nut width, Low-Noise Godin-Design single-coil pickups, Black Onyx finish. The single coil pickups sound very good and they're so quiet that I definitely thought they were mini-humbuckers, although the tone is somewhere between the fatness of a P90 and the clarity of a Tele. Set up on this guitar is fantastic, with low action and no fret out on bends anywhere on the neck. Cosmetically it has some minor dings on the back but overall it's in nice shape and with a new one running $599, it's a sweet deal on a proline guitar for $350. Includes well-padded gigbag.
