Godin's 5th Ave CW Kingpin II features a Cutaway body design and the added sounds of two Godin Kingpin custom Humbucking pickups.

With the soul of a 1950s archtop, the 5th Avenue is a true vintage spirit of yesterday with today's level of modern playability. With more projection & volume in the low/mids than traditional archtop acoustic guitars, the dynamically rich tone of the 5th Avenue makes this sophisticated instrument a dream to play, but not a nightmare to pay for. The Godin 5th Avenue now makes the affordable North American archtop guitar a reality! From Alt-Country, Delta Blues, Slide, Jazz to Rock, the 5th Avenue can really deliver both acoustically and electrically.

Made from Canadian Wild Cherry, the body of the 5th Avenue features a molded arched top and back, as well as an adjustable bridge, classic f-holes, contoured high-gloss headstock, floating pickguard and cream binding. Also, the rustic beauty of its Custom Polished Finish creates a gorgeous satin sheen reminiscent of the French polish of the 19th century.

• Canadian Wild Cherry archtop

Flawless construction, fast neck, excellent tone and playability. The two humbuckers sing. It can be used in almost any musical style, perfect for jazz, rockabilly and blues. Some people will criticize the "laminate" construction but this material will keep its shape forever and is not subject to warping due to humidity changes. I use it with half-round strings and the sound is beautiful.

I just picked up a used one of these up the other day. After about a minute of trying it in the store I knew it was coming home with me. I play jazzy type instrumentals, and the P90's deliver. The neck pickup is smooth and mellow, while the bridge one has that rockabilly sound from yesteryear. I highly recommend this model. Of my three Godin products this is my favourite.

Closest StoreVancouver, British Columbia
I have played guitar since '62 ( folk in Yorkville Village Toronto ) and classical. When I moved to Van 2014, I treated myself to a La Pattrie Concert, wow. I added a small fender amp and liked plugging it in so much I tried a variety of electric. The reviews and value drew me to the 5th Ave; 2 in 1 and great to look at. Sadly, an injury to my left shoulder left me with some mobility issues and this beautiful guitar is too large a fit for me. L&M Langley had a small body Epiphone ES 339 and a Seagull Entourage parlor sized acoustic for me to trade to, I added a short scale Fender Mustang at the N Van L&M to round out my collection. I've been an L&M customer since '61, thanks for the memories and great service. I still miss the 5th Ave.

I've had this guitar for just over a year now. I played it exclusively acoustic for the first 6 months....sounds great with medium jazz strings..then i decided i would give it a go plugged in. Well, i can only say yummy.... sound on the neck can be very warm and round, you get to play with the tone and volume to adjust and you can get a full fat tone... the bridge can be chunky to sharp, all through playing with tone and volume. Overall, i pound on this thing pretty hard.... It answers back with style and awesome looks. Finish is just beautiful, playability is great, sound is awesome! This is my second Godin and I've been convinced of the quality of these instruments since day 1 Well worth the price!

This is a very fine instrument. Light, feels great in your hands, easy to play with a fine touch, nice crisp response and a nice crisp sound. Mine has a single neck PU and sounds great with the amp and sometimes when I'm playing softly so as not to disturb the sleeping wife, I don't even realize I still have the amp on standby. I am happy I purchased it

After sampling every archtop hollow body I could get my hands on including Gretch, Gibson and Ibanez I held the Godin 5th Avenue kingpin in my hands and even without plugging in to hear the classic P90 single coil pickups I knew right then and there that I had found the "ONE". Comfortable, responsive, classic sounding and absolutely beautiful to look at. Its the perfect archtop.

Like I told Mike, when I buy a Gibson I spend between 1 and 3 hours setting up The Godin 5th Ave. needed string tuning! Quality of design, construction, finish, playability and sound are all 11 out of10 and she is drop dead gorgeous - the pictures don't do it justice
