Comments about Godin Redline HB Electric Guitar:

Okay, I buy, custom paint and sell guitars on the low end of the spectrum. (Why would you paint a high end guitar unless it was banged up?) I bought this guitar because my favorite guitarist, John McLaughlin, has two Godins in his top ten guitar list. Now, out of the gig bag, the Redline HB is a good but not great guitar. As previously alluded to in another review, this guitar could be improved with better tuners (I would pull a set of Grovers off of one of my five Schecters) and, as did John McLaughlin, pull the Godin pickups and go back in with Seymour Duncans. As such, for the money involved, a modified Godin Redline HB would be a well above average guitar. As is, it's a good guitar for not having paid an arm and a leg for it. I'll take a low end Godin over a low end Gibson or Fender any day.

Low Budget Luck of the Draw

        Comments about Godin Redline HB Electric Guitar:

        This Godin Redline was defective. The pick-ups produced a lot of noise and the signal was very weak. Aside from the defective electronics, this guitar, while made in the U.S. & Canada, isn't terribly different from other brands of the same price range, such the one has the luck of the draw off the assembly line. The neck is on the narrow side, and other features are standard for the price range, nothing to get terribly excited about. Perhaps if the instrument hadn't been defective, I would have gotten caught up in a great sound. But it went right back in the box, alas. And this was the third guitar in a row that I had to return (assembly line luck of the draw again).

        Very Nice for the Price!

        By Doug-cbGG4

        from Louisiana

        Comments about Godin Redline HB Electric Guitar:

        Nice guitar! Very nice fit and finish. Came setup well and intonated properly. Bridge pickup cuts through very nicely, kind of a mix of brightness mixed with a strong mid range. Neck pickup is good, but could be a little more contrasted from the bridge. Flame maple top is very beautiful. When you look at the cut for the pickup switch selector you can see the flame goes all the way down about an 1/8th of an inch. Not just a thin laminate, it actually has some thickness to it. I like this guitar and I highly recommend!

        Comments about Godin Redline HB Electric Guitar:

        After plugging in, I find the pickups to be overall good, not as good as seymour duncans, but close enough for this price point. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my decision to buy this guitar. I will probably switch pups for SD's and this will probably be my goto axe from now on. It is brighter in tone and the attack is sharper than my les paul, but it is a good addition to my pallet of tones to work with on my music. I have to comment on the neck, it feels very raw in the sense that it is not glossy, more satin. Very smooth and pleasing to the touch. If you are considering this guitar, buy it, you will be very glad you did.

        So Surprised!

        By Stevo0728

        from Texas

        Comments about Godin Redline HB Electric Guitar:

        Ok folks, let me give you my back I am 40, been playing since I was 15. I am a fanatic about quality in everything I buy. My wife says I research something for months before buying and this guitar was no exception. I can easily afford the big name brands, but I don't believe in paying for a name. After much research on this guitar, I made the call and ordered one. It came in the mail and I immediately went over it with a fine tooth comb, that was after I pick my jaw up from the floor, it is beautiful! Keep in mind for this price the tuners are not top notch but will work just fine, I may change them out later. The neck is the 16 inch radius, which I have never owned before, but it is so nice to run scales on. I have not had the chance to plug it in yet, but acoustically it sings. Bright, but not too much, but extremely musical. The back of the neck is satin and very nice to the touch. I have heard that the pickups which are passive on this model could use some improvement, but I always swap out stock pups for Seymour Duncans, which I will probably do soon. I own an American Strat and the frets on this guitar are as smooth as my Strat's which I am very happy about. I also own a import Epiphone Les Paul, which is nice for the money, but the Godin is much nicer construction and overall quality. So listen up Moms and Dads, this guitar would be an excellent first guitar that your new guitarist will never out grow. And listen up all you seasoned players, this guitar will please you as well. It would make an excellent primary stage guitar or a back up for the headstock snobs who have to have a major brand name on the headstock. Not saying this baby cannot hang with them, because I am sure it can. Overall, I highly recommend this guitar to anyone even remotely thinking of trying on of these out. Buy it, you will thank me.
