But then I was the steel string version was only 1 11/16" which is a standard width. I took the the seymour duncan out and put some early 60s Gibson P90s in it. I recently sold a Gibson ES335 to a professional Jazz guitarist here in Austin.

He played my my Godin first and buged me to death trying to buy it instead of the Gibson I wouldnt do it.

As for not liking them without trying them, it's just one of those things that when I was a kid, something (I'm not sure what) turned me off about them and so I haven't really paid much attention to them since.

Overall, great guitars for the money, and they're from Quebec ;-)I'll give it a shot but for me to try one i'd have to buy one.

You see i live in a small town and we only have 1 music store and all they stock is ibanez and ashton.

I have never been a big fan of godin guitars, but I've never played one either.

In fact, I am very skeptical about a jazz guitar from godin, seeing the normal market for godin's guitars.

that was a few months ago and he still asks me when he sees me.

I have played both the guitas you are talking about and I think they are wonderful.I am in the market for a new guitar and just saw that godin made some semi hollow models, supposedly with the jazz-oriented guitarist in mind.They are the Godin Montreal and the Godin Multiac Jazz.You're not going to get a really good answer until you try them out, so find a dealer near you, and give them a whirl.I was just curious if anyone here has had any experience with either of these two guitars.godin has long made giutars marketed to forward minded jazzers, so i don't know why you'd be skeptical.The extremely talented Jason Sadites put on a great performance at the Godin booth this year and here he is playing one of his songs at the Godin studios.
