Godin guitars are assembled in our Richmond, Quebec and Berlin, New Hampshire factories. The necks and bodies are all made in our original location in La Patrie, Quebec.
We are also known for our other brands which include our acoustic guitar lines: Seagull, Simon & Patrick, Norman, LaPatrie and Art & Lutherie. We are also the manufacturer of the revolutionary TRIC case provided unparalleled protection for your guitar.
All over the world guitar players are making exciting new music that explores new techniques and defies categorization. All of this new guitar music is complemented by the guitars’ almost limitless capacity for variation in design. Unlike most other instruments, which have followed the same design parameters for decades, the modern guitar continues to evolve. We are constantly reviewing and refining the techniques employed to craft them, the materials used to build them, and the integration of the latest developments in related electronics.
Exploring these possibilities is what Godin is all about.
Our goal with each Godin guitar is to find the perfect balance between the finest traditions of guitar crafting and the new design concepts that we are developing. After 25 years of guitar building we still hand-finish the necks on every Godin guitar. In fact, from fretting to sanding, there is more handwork in our guitars than you would find in most custom shops. From the selection of the wood to the final adjustments on the finished instrument, each Godin guitar is designed and built by people who love guitars.
