Contoured design, beautiful tone woods, and floating humbucker for intimate jazz tone.
The Godin 5th Avenue Jazz Guitar is the next logical step up the 5th Avenue series ladder. Following on the success of the Kingpin models with cutaway, the 5th Avenue Jazz Guitar has features that Jazz guitarists have been asking for.
This very elegant instrument was made with the jazz player in mind. This upper echelon 5th Avenue Jazz features arched back as well as arched top and comes in two all high-gloss custom polished finishes, including Sunburst HG and Natural Flame HG. The Sunburst model consists of Canadian wild cherry top, back & sides and the Natural Flame model features flame maple top, back & sides with Canadian wild cherry core.
Other features include a smooth sounding floating Godin Mini-humbucker jazz pickup in the neck, ebony fingerboard, ebony volume and tone knobs, classic multi-layered binding, high-ratio open geared nickel tuners, engraved floating pickguard, custom tailpiece and adjustable Tusq bridge by Graphtech.
Compared to other 5th Avenue guitars, the Jazz model has a body that is slightly smaller with contours that make it even more comfortable to play. This body design produces a bright and punchy acoustic tone. A single Godin floating humbucker provides an intimate electric sound with superior dynamics, perfectly suitable for both fingerstyle and flatpicking.
Crafted with beautiful Canadian wild cherry or flame maple, the body of the 5th Avenue Jazz has a molded arched top and back. The gloss finish highlights the beauty of these body woods. Classic f-holes, contoured high-gloss headstock, floating pickguard and cream binding enhance the guitar's jazzy looks, while an adjustable Tusq bridge by Graphtech and ebony fingerboard contribute to the guitar's jazzy tone.
