For immediate release:
Montreal, Canada- August 20th, 2007- Canadian guitar maker, Godin Guitars has announced the next addition to its family of renowned electric guitars. The new Godin Velocity will be unveiled at the upcoming MIAC show in Toronto Canada from August 26-27, 2007.
The Godin Velocity features a double-horned body, comprised of a silver leaf maple center with poplar wings and a gorgeous natural, solid high-flame maple top, unique to each guitar. However, under its classic and stunning good looks, lurks the beast within. The new Velocity is also the first of the Godin Electric models to feature the Godin High-Definition Revoicer. The H.D.R. revoices and augments the frequency range of each pickup and allows the player to go from passive to active pickups with the simple push of a button. The H.D.R. gives guitarists the best of both worlds. The Velocity’s growl is powered by 2 Godin GS-1 single coil pickups as well as the beefy tone and high output of the SH-5 Duncan Custom humbucker by Seymour Duncan for serious crunch and an aggressive bite.
The ease of the Velocity’s 22 fret, rock maple neck is thanks in part to Godin’s “Ergocut” shaping technique. It gives each Godin neck an extremely comfortable worn-in feel for effortless playabitity and, if need be, lightning speed!
Other features include a vintage tremolo bridge, optional maple or rosewood fingerboard, 5 way switch and the choice of three stunning high gloss finishes: Natural Flame HG, Natural Burst Flame HG and Amber Flame HG.
