Godin Guitars Launches The Radium Matte Green Electric Guitar

The new electric guitar is as part of Godin Guitars high-quality Radium Series.

The Radium Matte Green model offers an H-S-H pickup configuration for a multitude of tonal possibilities, with a pair of hot Custom Godin Zebra Humbuckers and a Godin Custom Cajun Nickel in the middle. It also presents other unique features compared to the more traditional single-cutaway solid-bodies, such as a short-scale (24.75”) set-neck and a highly stable 3&3 headstock design for comfortable playing and bending.
