A bass easily worth twice its price.
Comfort, balance, and classic bass sounds are what the Freeway basses are all about. Each rock maple neck is hand-finished and shaped with the Godin Ergocut technique. The convertible bridge offers the option of stringing through the body for added snap or through the back of the bridge for a mellower tone. 2 Godin single-coil pickups are screwed right into the body amplifying the natural resonance of the bass and producing smooth and dynamic tones.

I have owned this bass for a year now and am extremely satisfied with it. It feels perfectly balanced, and I never have to fight with the angle I am holding it at. The neck is a little thinner in the back and is one of the fastest playing necks I've encountered. The P/J pickup configuration offers a little bit of variation on the already stellar tone. The only gripe I had with it was that the jazz pickup, being a single coil pickup, gives a 60 cycle hum when dialed in all the way with the p-bass pickup(not readily noticed during play with other instruments.) Overall this is a great sounding, comfortable, and player friendly bass that I would recommend to anyone.
This bass is awesome! It came to me all set up all I had to do was tune it up. The overall sound of this bass is amazing, it has a trmendous low end, an insane mid growl and nice snappy high end response. I like this bass as much as my P-Bass and Jazz Bass thats how nice this instrument is. And the price is right too. I felt Godin out did themselves on this one.
