The 5th Avenue guitar's dynamically rich tone and smooth playability makes this sophisticated instrument a dream to play. With the soul of a 1950s archtop, the 5th Avenue is a true vintage spirit of yesterday with today’s level of modern playability. With more projection & volume in the low/mids than traditional archtop acoustic guitars, the 5th Avenue meets the demanding needs of today's musicians.
The Godin 5th Avenue Series now makes the dream of owning an affordable North American archtop a reality! Whether you play Alt-Country, Delta Blues, Slide, Jazz or Rock, the 5th Avenue can really deliver both acoustically and electrically.
Made from Canadian Wild Cherry, the body of the 5th Avenue features a molded arched top and back, as well as an adjustable bridge, classic F-holes, contoured semi-gloss headstock, floating pickguard, and cream binding. Also, the rustic beauty of its Custom Polished Finish creates a gorgeous satin sheen reminiscent of the 19th century.
