Godin will be introducing its new Richmond brand of electric guitars at this years NAMM show. The Richmond brand was first seen at Musikmesse in March 2008. However, this will be the first North American appearance for this new line. The Richmond line consists of its first two models: the Belmont and the Dorchester. Made in Richmond Quebec Canada by a dedicated team of guitar craftsmen, the Richmond Belmont and Dorchester models exemplify serious tone for players looking for a vintage vibe backed by meticulous craftsmanship, innovation and modern playability.

The JAM 150 Plus will be available to try out at the Godin booth in Nashville.

Godin will also be showcasing all of its exciting new models, which came out this past year. This includes the increasingly talked about Godin 5th Avenue archtop acoustic and its electric sibling, the 5th Avenue Kingpin with P90 pickup. Both offer vintage looks and feel but with modern playability. Other new additions include the rockin' Godin Summit CT with High-Definition Revoicer and Seymour Duncan 59 & Alnico 2 humbuckers, the LG HB & LG SP90 now with beautiful figured tops, the 3-voice Multiac Spectrum steel string with Lipstick pickup and the aggressive 24 fret shred-machine known as the Godin Redline1. For the single-coil lover, the exquisite Passion RG-3 will also be making an appearance, featuring the finest selection of woods and Godin's new GS-3 Single coil pickups, as well as the High-Definition Revoicer.
