Unveiled by parent company Godin Guitars at the recent Musikmesse 2008 in Frankfurt, the Richmond line consists of its first two models: the Belmont and the Dorchester. Made in Richmond Quebec Canada by a dedicated team of guitar craftsmen, the Richmond Belmont and Dorchester models exemplify serious tone for players looking for a vintage vibe backed by meticulous craftsmanship, innovation and modern playability. These "Titans of Tone" conjure up seminal classic rock images from the 50's, 60's & 70's, while giving players all the sonic bliss they could ask for.

The sizzling Belmont with its 24-3/4" scale and solid mahogany body features two single coil Lipstick pickups along with the vintage bite of a Seymour Duncan '59 humbucker in the bridge, a mahogany neck with rosewood Ergocut fingerboard, 5-way switch as well as separate volume and tone controls. The full bodied, 25-1/2" scale Dorchester model features two Lace Alumitone humbuckers, housed in a chambered silver leaf maple body with poplar wings and a rock maple neck with rosewood or maple Ergocut fingerboard. The controls consist of separate volume and tone knobs along with a 4-way switch with a "beefy" 1st position with the neck/bridge in-series, producing more output and a fatter tone. Both models feature a chrome roller bridge with a fixed tailpiece, chrome Kluson tuning machines, Nordic white pickguard and truss rod cover with matching binding on the back.

The Richmond brand brings a new dimension to Godin's renowned line-up. Robert Godin joined together with his top electric guitar designer and worked tirelessly to create these astoundingly beautiful instruments that truly speak for themselves.
