I don't know about those specific guitars, but one thing I know, you can buy Godin guitars your eyes closed...they are very good. I had a couple electric ones but I also had an accoustic Norman St-68, made by Godin, and it's the best accoustic guitar I ever had... It was about $750 street price in the 90's ( MSRP $1000 ).So I figure those are probably very good.

Godin seems to have a pretty good reputation with their solid body custom electrics,

I believe John McLaughlin plays one (or did at one point). Their entry into

the acoustic archtop world even if considered custom, is a bit late,

but the wood seems to be intriguing..Canadian Cherry....almost synonymous

with Canadian Back Bacon.. and Maple Syrup.

 

Definitely different from Michigan Fiddle Back flamed maple that Gibson used

(or maybe still do) on some of their high end archtops.

Yeah, Mr. Godin makes some really nice guitars. We don't carry the line so I'm really not familiar with the various models but every Godin I've seen has caught my eye. I actually met Mr. Godin once; he seems like a nice guy but then again a buddy of mine worked for him and he's had, shall we say, a bad experience, seems Mr. Godin likes to badmouth people sometimes. Anyway.
