I bought this guitar about 4 months ago, and it is one of the most amazing instruments ive ever played. My friend bought an Epi Sg with emg's for the same price, and his guitar is not even close to as good as mine. The solid wood gives good tone, unlike cheap plywood in epiphones.
I bought this when I was looking for a guitar to get the new metal sound. I was a little unsure seeing that that I never played or owned a Godin guitar. All I can say is WOW! I have been playing Strats, Teles & Les Pauls but this may become my main guitar. Great distortion tone and cleans up very nicely. The only complaint I have is that I may change the neck pickup to a EMG 60 just for a little more tonal difference but, if you are looking for a great playing guitar with active electronics this will be a great choice!
Amazing value for this guitar, two emg's shinning at you with a godin quality body. Beautiful guitar with a GREAT feel. And as always with Godin you get a heck of a lot more than you pay for. This guitar is NOT for beginners though, the 25 1/2 inch scale is harder to learn on. I guess you could manage pretty well though. The only thing I find lacking on the guitar is no tremolo arm, and the fact that both pick ups are the same (EMG 81's) I would have liked to have seen two different pickups, since the 81s dont make the guitar as versatile as if you had an 85/81 but thats pretty easy to change about. Mines set up as 85/81 and the sound is great, easy to play. Well made. Over all a 9/10 guitar.
This guitar is GREAT.The EMGs really give it a nice distorted sound, along with an awesome clean sound. I've had it for about half a year now and it's now my favorite and main guitar. The bridge gives it great sustain. Awesome for all metal and rock.
OK, so I went to a store with a PRS in mind. I was hell bent on buying one and I thought they were the guitar to have. Boy was I wrong. The man in the store helping me told me that if I liked the PRS to try this guitar, and he handed me the Freeway EMG. Great guitar, but when I looked at the way you had to change the strings I didn't have a clue. It is so wierd. I'd never seen anything like it in my life. So then I said how does this work and he told me the he had no clue either. So I tried its cousin, the Freeway Classic. Softer tone, and an extra pickup. And no weird string loading contraption. And it was cheaper. Real, this guitar is nice, but the Classic is way better. By the way, I ended up buying the Freeway Classic.
I was looking for a new guitar to begin my career as a guitar player. I wanted a guitar with a price range of about 500 dollars, and I wanted it to be a really good one that would last for a long time. I was originally thinking of buying an Epiphone Les Paul, but they didn't really appeal to me. Finally, after a long time of searching, my guitar teacher showed me this one. It's perfect! It has amazing bite and an awesome feel to it. The finish on it looks terrible in the picture but in real life...it's smokin hot plus it doesn't scratch! Forget buying an obnoxiously Epiphone Les Paul, this guitar is really light. Overall, I would say that this guitar is probably better than a Gibson. Buy this or spare your ears beauty.
I just recieved this guitar as a birthday gift to replace my Schecter Diamond Series C1 Elite. This guitar compares in both sound quality and playability to any other guitar I've played. A very solid clean sound, and a very live distortion from the EMG's. Great intonation throughout the fretboard. This guitar is Awesome all around!
I went into ProSound, the best music store ever, and I picked up this axe and it was the only one I wanted! the action is perfect, it's not to loose like a jackson and it is still easy to use. the EMGs give incredible distorted and clean sound! it is most definatley worth more that they charge
I've owned this guitar for a little over 2 years now and have hardly even considered buying anything new (but everyone looks at PRS at some point). It is so incredibly playable. Though I primarily play melodic Death Metal, it is cmpletely universal. A lot of people including myself were skeptical about the EMGs clean ability but that instantly went away. It fits absolutely all of my needs and I really couldnt ask for anything else.
