Climb to the highest peaks of your potential with this tremendous single pickup guitar from Godin! Coming in a delicious Satin Vintage Sunburst and an official Godin Softcase, you cannot miss out on this amazing instrument!

The Godin Summit Classic SG is Godin's take on a classic single cutaway bolt-on guitar design. This guitar is crafted from versatile-sounding Canadian Laurentian basswood which gives a lightweight feel for enhanced comfort. The Summit Classic SG is loaded with a single Godin P90 bridge pickup. Tonally, the P90 sits between a humbucker and a single coil; it has the 'bite' of a humbucker yet the clarity and nuance of a single coil. A single pickup guitar is surprisingly versatile and makes the player utilise the volume and tone controls more to create their variety of sounds. The neck is made from resonant maple with a rosewood fingerboard; the fingerboard has an ergocut design for an incredibly smooth playing feel. This guitar has a stable nickel wrap-around bridge which provides enhanced tuning stability and sustain. The Summit Classic is a blues/rock-influenced guitar and would be ideal for creating brash tones that cut through the mix. The single pickup and simple control arrangement makes it a highly interactive and engaging guitar. Whether practicing at home or rocking on stage, you'll find that the Summit Classic is simple to use yet provides a powerful set of tones and an easy playability.

The Godin Summit Classic SG features a classic single cutaway set-neck body design whose outline has helped define the rock and pop genre over the past half century. This simple guitar design has a fixed bridge and a single P90 which gives a resonant tone and great tuning stability, perfect for busy gigging musicians who value tone, playability, and good looks.

The Summit Classic features a Canadian Laurentian basswood body which is a lightweight and tonally versatile tonewood. It has a well-balanced frequency output that adapts to many styles of playing and musical genres. Its light weight makes it comfortable to use over long periods, while the set-neck design enhances the sustain and resonance.

The neck is crafted from maple for a smooth feel and to provide bright overtones, while the rosewood fingerboard has great low-end articulation for a snappy response.

The Summit Classic has a single P90 pickup in the bridge position. The P90 pickup is seen as a 'half way' between the single coil and the humbucker; it has the 'bite' and 'growl' of a humbucker when pushed into overdrive yet can provide the nuance and clarity of a single coil.

The single pickup can either allow you to turn everything up to 10 and play flat-out, like many punks and rockers have done over the decades. Or, the single pickup can be shaped with the volume and tone controls to provide a surprisingly versatile set of sounds. Many blues players have found that a single pickup guitar forces them to interact with the controls more to generate their sounds. With a limited range of options, the player can become more creative with their controls and will start to find their favourite 'go-to' positions, making it a far more engaging experience than simply flicking a pickup selector switch.

The rosewood fingerboard has a ergocut design which makes it even smoother for a comfortable playing feel. The guitar's single cutaway provides enhanced access to the upper-frets and is ideal for soloing. The basswood body is light for a comfortable playing feel during long gigs/practice sessions.

Fixed bridge guitars are inherently more stable and resonant. The Summit Classic SG's wrap-around bridge has no moving Parts so makes a stable platform for reliable tuning, along with providing enhanced sustain. The nickel machine heads make for easy tuning adjustments, and the stable set-neck design will give you a reliable performance night after night, without having to constantly worry about going out of tune. These styles of guitar are easy to setup and will provide a hassle-free performance for a busy life of gigging and practicing. Comes with an official Godin Softcase.
