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 dual humbuckers 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 two Godin humbuckers which provide a balanced sound with a medium-high gain output. They are perfectly suited to rock and pop styles, while the 3-way pickup selector and simple vol/tone control arrangement lets you craft many different tones out of the guitar. When combined with the basswood body, these pickups create a versatile tonality that will respond well to your playing dynamics and adapt to different amp/pedal settings to cover many different genres of music.
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.
