5th Avenue Kingpin
The Godin 5th Avenue brings you back to a time when the archtop acoustic guitar reigned supreme. With the soul of a 1950s archtop, the 5th Avenue is a true vintage spirit of yesterday with todays level of modern playability. With more projection & volume in the low/mids than traditional archtop acoustic guitars, the dynamically rich tone of the 5th Avenue makes this sophisticated instrument a dream to play, but not a nightmare to pay for. The Godin 5th Avenue now makes the affordable North American archtop guitar a reality! From Alt-Country, Delta Blues, Slide, Jazz to Rock, the 5th Avenue can really deliver both acoustically and electrically. The new Godin Kingpin P90 single-coil pickup delivers all that classic, vintage tone with presence, clarity and a little attitude thrown in for good measure!

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 high-gloss headstock, floating pickguard and cream binding. Also, the rustic beauty of its Custom Polished Finish creates a gorgeous satin sheen reminiscent of the French polish of the 19th century.

I was looking for an Archtop. I came across 1 Godin but it sold before I made the decision. I spend time playing the guitars I buy. I finally settled on the Gretsch New Yorker, A week after I bought it I came across this guitar on Marketplace. Just out of curiosity I went to look. I fell in love. and bought it. LOL…. It plays like butter.. Its almost identicle in size and style to the Gretsch but 1. the tuners on the Godin are much easier to use. they both stay in tune.. 2. the sound of the Godin is warmer accoustically.. They are both great.. but for some reason when I sit down I pull the Godin off the stand.. ( right beside the Gretsch) most of the time. Im now considering the King Pin II…. LOL. the most amazing thing is .. how easy it is to play .. again.. just like butter.

I don't know a lot about guitars, build quality, tone, etc. I lucked in with my first new guitar purchase, a Montreal Premier and in comparison with my Japanese herd of guitars......the sound, tone, playability, but mostly the looks..... beyond compare. So my next new guitar was the Kingpin, hoping that I would be as pleased with the Kingpin as I was with the Montreal Premier. I appreciate the cost difference and expected a diminished playing experience in line with the cost. I was wrong, right out the plastic shipping shoulders, no adjustments, just play. Now just about a year into the Kingpin, have restrung using Elixir lights and the experience is almost haunting, when played thru my Katana. So don't be shy about buying a Godin Fifth Avenue Kingpin. It is a superlative guitar in every way except price.

i purchased the black model. This is an amazing instrument, full of sweet tone acousticaly and a warm tone plugged in. The only drawback that i've found is that the thumb screws on the tuning pegs need to be tightened all the way in order to stay in tune for any length of time. Otherwise it goes out of tune easily. I did not buy it from lm. Instead i found it for 300 less at tom lee during a clear out. In conclusion i feel other then the tuning pegs it is a 5 out of 5 star guitar. I play something from soundgarden to tool and a little in between. It plays these styles great.

I've had my Godin 5th Ave Kingpin for about 2 years now.. I love this one! It's become my "go - to " guitar even though i own guitars that cost 4 times as much. With flat wound strings on it, it's fast and comfortable, great mellow jazz tone plugged in. Works well for almost any style particularly blues. Really pretty too... excellent solid guitar and a bargain price. Godin's rock! ps if it's in your price range i'd recommend you go for the cut away version with 2 P90's pickups for a bit better access to upper frets.

I love the sound and feel of this Godin 5th Avenue Kingpin P90 guitar, with or without the electric. And it looks good too. I tried a basic electric guitar but wasn't happy with it. I traded up to this one and was glad I did. I just love to play it day and night, it just sounds and feels great. What a sweet heart it is. I just have to decide on a name for it. You know we name the things we love.
