Godin : Left Handed Guitars

Godin Guitars is based in Canada, and offers up some truly innovative guitars which combine traditional design with state-of-the-art features and manufacturing techniques. The company’s Canadian heritage is proudly featured in many of their instruments, which are constructed of many home-grown tone-woods such as Canadian Wild Cherry and silver leaf maple.

What about left handed Godin guitars I hear you ask? Well Godin has slowly been improving their southpaw range, and at present has 6 guitars available, most of which occupy a niche which isn’t readily available elsewhere. For example, with its synth access, the Multiac Nylon SA is a pretty unique instrument in the realm of lefty guitars.

Oh, and it’s pronounced Go-Dan. But you knew that, right?

A6 Ultra

The left handed Godin A6 Ultra gives you the sound of a plugged-in acoustic guitar with the comfort of an electric size neck. When plugged in, feedback is almost entirely eliminated thanks to its innovative chambered body design.

A Godin humbucker in the neck position provides a full and thick tone, and is combined with an under-saddle transducer. The guitar also features dual outputs which allows you to combine both electric and acoustic tones for a truly huge sound. The Custom Godin preamp section allows for independent control of both the acoustic and electric volume and EQ settings. An incredibly versatile guitar!

Session

left handed Godin Session

The Godin Session is available left handed in either lightburst with a maple fingerboard or blackburst with rosewood. As you’d expect from an S-style guitar, these two HSS instruments are super versatile and should be able to handle almost genres of music with relative ease. And as with most of the Godins featured here, the Session is another wallet friendly lefty!

And for those lefties who are dismayed at seeing yet another black Strat style guitar – don’t overlook this one yet! Although you can’t really tell from the image, the finish is actually transparent, allowing the grain of the wood to add some extra visual flair.

  • Canadian Laurentian basswood body
  • Rock maple neck with rosewood or maple fretboard
  • Godin humbucker plus 2 GS-1 singlecoil pickups
  • Blackburst or Light burst finishes available

    I have the Godin A6 Ultra Lefty and it really is an excellent guitar. Is it an acoustic or electric guitar? Neither really – it’s an acoustic-electric hybrid which means you can do all sorts of things you couldn’t normally do. With a twin A/B switch you can go from clean acoustic to dirty humbucker tones in an instant. Marvellous! And if you run it clean with some humbucker mixed in with the piezo you get a very big acoustic sound – great for solo gigs. Not only that it is a quality guitar and plays like a dream.

    I’m patiently waiting for my lefty Session (lightburst) to arrive. There was no stock available. Godin said they make them to order.

      On the link I’ve provided above there’s a lightburst in stock. But I see the black has a 3 to 7 month waiting time- yikes! I haven’t tried one myself, but from other player reviews I’ve read they seem to be very highly regarded. Should be worth the wait 🙂
