2009 Godin Progression
2009 Godin Progression This is a "New Old Stock" 2009 model Godin Progression electric guitar w/Godin gigbag. This is a great sounding guitar and at a good price. Some of the features of this guitar are: 3 Godin GS-2 single coil pickups 5 way switch Rock maple neck High Def Revoicer Silver leaf maple body with poplar wings Godin gigbag The Progression features 3 beefy ANILCO pickups, a Maple/Poplar body, and Godin's unique High Definition Revoicer for both active and passive sounds Maple/Poplar body 25.5" scale maple Ergo-cut neck with 12" radius, tinted satin finish and glossy headstock Neck profile approx. .820" at the 1st fret and .920" at the 12th Rosewood Fingerboard 3 Godin GS-2 pickups with staggered oversize magnets Godin 3-spring tremolo with stainless steel saddles 5-way pickup switch Godin HDR active revoicer switch for 5 active and 5 passive sounds Schaller strap lock buttons Godin deluxe gig bag Made in Canada and USA List price: $995 The inspiration for the Godin Progression is obvious, but the feel is unmistakably Godin. Like all Godin necks, this maple neck is on the slim side, feels very comfortable, and the Ergo-cut neck means that the shoulders are rounded and the frets nicely dressed so that it feels totally broken in on day one. The neck is technically a "C" profile, but I like to term it a "C flat" as the profile is slightly flatter than a totally rounded C profile that you might find on a Fender. It's not too dainty for large hands, and for female players and those with smaller hands it's right on the money. Pressing the HDR Active Revoicer switch gives the guitar a lively "souped up" tone. Running off a 9V battery, the HDR circuit scoops the midrange slightly, and adds a little high and low end emphasis for a crisp high end and piano-like low notes. It doesn't increase volume significantly, but it adds presence and a little spice. In this mode there is the glassy tone and bite similar to a Stratocaster® played into a blackface amp. It's perfect for blues, funk and fusion, and the in-between tones have great cluck and snap that will greatly please Mark Knoffler fans. For many, just leaving the HDR on and fine tuning the volume and tone controls is the way to go.

Hey Scott, I got a Godin Session. They are great guitars. Mine only says Made in Canada on it and nothing else. Also has a Tiger Maple body on it. I can not tell if it is just a veneer or a cap as the tobacco burst finish covers too much of it - someone kinda got carried away with spraying the darker color around the edge and covered too much of the beautiful wood. Many years back I contacted Godin (with photos) about the guitar because I had never seen a Session with the Tiger Maple body and asked if it was special built or something but did not get a committed answer about anything. Like why it was different than the others that were shown. So I am still ignorant about it. But it is a great guitar and solid made, especially for the price slightly used with a Godin gig bag.
