The Godin Icon. You heard it here first!

The Godin Icon looks utterly incredible.  I am in constant contact with my friends at the UK distributor in order to make sure I am first in the queue for these wonderful new guitars.

Check out the following video which gives you a great idea about what is so exciting!  Check out particularly the Type II.

Here is some extra detail which I have taken from the Godin site...

The very first Set-Neck guitars in the Godin Guitar line-up have arrived...the Godin ICON series!

Awaken the "Rock-God" in any player with any of the four ICON models available, such as the ICON Type 2 Fat Black, ICON Type 2 Classic, ICON Type 2 Convertible and the ICON Type 3.

Each model features a chambered solid mahogany body with carved mahogany top, mahogany set-neck, 24 3/4" scale, 16" radius, ebony fingerboard with 22 frets, Graphtech ResoMax bridge and the Godin High-Definition Revoicer. See below specs for each model's electronic options.

H.D.R. 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.

Th H.D.R. provides extra bite, dynamic response and redefines the
character of each pickup. It’s like having 2 sets of pickups in 1 guitar for 5 pure passive tones + 5 pure active tones.

All ICON models are built and assembled in Richmond QC, Canada
