Montreal, Canada- August 16th, 2007- Canadian guitar maker, Godin Guitars has announced the next addition to its family of electric guitars. The new Godin Velocity will be unveiled at the upcoming MIAC show in Toronto Canada from August 26-27, 2007. godin velocity.jpgThe Godin Velocity features a double-horned body, comprised of a silver leaf maple center with poplar wings and a gorgeous natural, solid high-flame maple top, unique to each guitar. The new Velocity is the first of the Godin Electric models to feature the Godin High-Definition Revoicer. The H.D.R. revoices and augments the frequency range of each pickup and allows the player to go from passive to active pickups with the simple push of a button. The Velocity's sound is powered by 2 Godin GS-1 single coil pickups as well as the beefy tone and high output of the SH-5 Duncan Custom
humbucker by Seymour Duncan for serious crunch and an aggressive bite.

The Velocity's 22 fret, rock maple neck is thanks in part to Godin's "Ergocut" shaping technique. It gives each Godin neck a comfortable worn-in feel.

Other features include a vintage tremolo bridge, optional maple or rosewood fingerboard, 5 way switch and the choice of two high gloss finishes: Natural Flame HG and Natural Burst Flame HG.
