Godin Guitars has announced a new guitar in its Session range, the HT. The HT stands for hard-tail, as this model does without the trem system of the older LTD models. And it’s going for a lot less money than you might expect.
Godin Guitars Session HT
Godin Guitars’ latest Session HT model comes in three colours Matte Black, Trans Cream and Bourbon Burst. The body is made from Silver Leaf maple with a maple neck and they have an Indian laurel fingerboard loaded with 22 frets. You also get a nice Graphtech nut to aid tuning stability.
This model has a 25.5-inch scale length and features an HSS pickup configuration with coil splitting on the bridge humbucker. The middle and neck position single-coil pickups are both Godin’s own GS-1 model. These are then paired with a Godin Custom Humbucker. You access that coil split via a push/pull control on the guitar’s tone knob.
Budget price, premium instrument?
All in all, those specs point to a wide palette of tones and a pretty versatile instrument. Especially when you look at the price point these guitars are being sold at. The parts are made in Canada and then assembled in the USA, so you are getting a quality guitar but on a far lower budget than normal.
You can hear the new Godin Guitars Session HT model in action in the official video below. If you are in the market for a quality hard tail guitar that won’t break the bank, then these are certainly worth a look.
