    Comments about Godin 5th Avenue Uptown GT Guitar with Bigsby:

    I wanted to buy a guitar that was not made in Asia. So I purchased a GODIN, made in North America; Canada and USA. This Guitar is amazing for the price...I can not say enough about it, I am pleased beyond all my expectations. Also, this is my second Godin purchase...I gave my 5th Avenue to my son for his birthday!

        Comments about Godin 5th Avenue Uptown GT Guitar with Bigsby:

        Mine is black and beautiful. I've tried my best to find a fault with this guitar, i can't. This guitar does everything well. The only thing that bothers me is the narrow neck, If my fingers were any bigger i wouldn't be able to clear cords. I have large hands. If you ware bigger than an extra large glove this is not for you. If you want one that can do it all this is it. it's another keeper. I own gretch,gibson,fender, Yamaha, and washburn. Godin is one of the best.

                  Nicely constructed guitar, but seems slightly overpriced. Needs dual tone/volume controls. Strings pop out of roller bridge. Strongly considering returning ther guitar.
