OVERVIEW

Retro style and packed with tonal punch.

The Empire features a 24.75" scale, two Custom Godin humbuckers or two Godin Kingpin P90 single-coil pickups (mahogany model only). Pickups are housed in a single cutaway solid body with a silverleaf maple center and poplar wings or the solid mahogany body of the Empire mahogany HG. The pickups are controlled by separate volume and tone knobs, along with a 3-way toggle switch.

The Empire' bolt-on mahogany neck features the worn in feel of an Ergocut rosewood fingerboard for an incredibly comfortable playing experience. These retro rockets are finished off with high-ratio tuning machines, a chrome wraparound bridge and black pickguard. Includes Deluxe gig bag.

Comments about Richmond by Godin Empire Electric Guitar:

First off, I love this guitar! It's so light and very well balanced. The neck feels so smooth and natural. The pickups have a wonderful mid-range attitude to them... just like a P-90 should. The finish is absolutely perfection. This is my first wrap-around bridge I've ever had and I am taken aback by much more sustain it has- I mean like I kinda have to update my right hand technique a bit, that was a welcome suprise! The body contouring just feels right. The tan included gig bag is top shelf and definitly a looker. My only complaint is- I'm sure it has been sitting in the MF warehouse for probably a couple of years and the action upon arrival was not even remotly playable... it was about 1/4"! Not good. BUT, a trip to the guitar doctor, a new set of strings and this baby sings! Very, very happy with this well crafted beauitful guitar!

    High quality Canadian made guitar with P90 tone! Solid mahogany body and neck. Rosewood fretboard. Ping vintage tuners. Full size pots. 3-way Switchcraft/Gibson style quality switch. Alnico P90 Kingpin pickups made by G&B in Korea. Cloth covered lead wires. Neck P90 reads 7.94 ohms and bridge P90 reads 9.64 ohms. Schaller strap lock buttons and deluxe Godin gig bag. Worth every bit.
