Godin has made a name for themselves with their unique electric guitars. Now their Limited Godin Acoustic Series breaks new ground with premium tonewoods, design elements, and build quality for a sound, look, and playability that immediately says: “Godin.” Pick up the Godin Metropolis EQ Limited and strum a chord — you feel and hear the Godin difference right away. The Metropolis EQ Limited sports a large, dreadnought-style body with genuine mahogany back and sides and a solid cedar top. The mahogany neck feels just right, as your fingers dance on the smooth-as-glass Richlite fingerboard. And the sound? This guitar is a veritable tone cannon with powerful projection and a big, balanced sound that is amplified flawlessly by the onboard LR Baggs Anthem electronics. The Godin Metropolis EQ Limited: to play it is to love it.
The Godin Metropolis EQ Limited combines a solid cedar top with genuine mahogany back and sides. Thanks to cedar’s quick response and midrange overtones, we regularly recommends cedar-topped acoustics for fingerstylists and other players with a light touch. As a body tonewood, mahogany generally serves up a focused sound with a full midrange; mahogany is treasured for its punchy midrange bloom and strongly focused, earthy, and somewhat dry fundamental without a preponderance of ringing overtones. An acoustic guitar with mahogany back and sides sits nicely in a track, which is why engineers and studio guitarists tend to prefer “hogs” for tracking. In the Metropolis EQ Limited, the sonic attributes of these two premium tonewoods join forces to deliver formidable projection with robust low end, midrange punch, and shimmering presence that works brilliantly whether miked in the studio or amplified onstage.
The LR Baggs Anthem Tru-Mic acoustic pickup system will change the way you look at acoustic guitar mic pickups. This feedback-busting, natural-sounding pickup is the result of over 30 years of effort. There’s no modeling and no illusions going on here. The Anthem is strictly a well-designed microphone that picks up your guitar — clean, clear, and dynamic. While many guitar mics are prone to feedback or sound annoyingly boxy, the LR Baggs Anthem is like having your acoustic sound simply turned up, so it’s full of detail, warmth, and personality — and feedback-free.
